Network Art generated by DreamStudio 

The aim of this project  is to provide a detailed comparison of the security of Proof of Work (e.g., Bitcoin) versus Proof of Stake (e.g., Ethereum 2) protocols along several dimensions, including double-spend attacks, use of market power in mining and staking; disruption of consensus and transaction finality.
