- The developer is skeptical of a PoS switch due to its effectiveness.
- It looks like the majority of DOGE developers are taking a cautious approach.
When asked about the potential of Dogecoin switching to a proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, a major contributor and developer Mishaboar hinted at maybe moving away from the project. When asked whether he would stake Dogecoin if given the opportunity, he revealed this information.
The developer is skeptical of a PoS switch due to its effectiveness. He voiced doubts about the viability and security of PoS chains, drawing on his two years of experience with Dogecoin.
He described the problems with prior PoS approaches, such as centralization, catastrophic failures, and regulatory hurdles. Mishaboar has raised concerns about the viability of PoS, especially in regard to Dogecoin.
It looks like the majority of DOGE developers are taking a cautious approach, which suggests that a change may be on the horizon.
Given his prominence, Mishaboar’s possible departure may send shockwaves across the Dogecoin community. Concerns regarding PoS voiced by the developer have important implications for Dogecoin and the cryptocurrency industry as a whole.
The Dogecoin community is still deeply split over how to go ahead as the ongoing discussion about consensus methods plays out. Uncertainty about this major choice adds a new dimension of complication to the already struggling sector.
Amid the recent ongoing downtrend in the crypto market, DOGE price also suffered heavily. According to CMC, the price of DOGE is now trading at $0.06316, down 1.62% in the last 24 hours with a decline in market cap of 1.51%. Moreover, the price is down 17% in the last 7 days.
