Proof of Stake Bitcoin Sidechains
Proof of stake is another consensus protocol that has been used on multiple block chains for quite some time now, there was a proposal on the Bitcoin-dev mailing list to attach proof of stake sidechains to the original Bitcoin blockchain. This allows for the development of decentralized networks which aim to manage reserves of Bitcoin, using custom application code and smart contracts that use Bitcoin as the native currency.
