Is proof-of-stake just an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine? Is it possible for an attacker to simply buy up all the stake on a network? Could a competing network be incentivized to do this? Can staking and DeFi co-exist? Can DeFi harm a staking network by offering better returns? In this clip, Andreas examines several common concerns about staking.
These questions are from both the January 2020 and February 2020 Patreon Q&A sessions, which took place on February 29th 2020 & January 25th 2020, respectively.
