Proof of stake is a consensus mechanism used by some blockchain networks to achieve distributed consensus. In proof of stake, the creator of a new block is chosen in a deterministic way, depending on their stake in the network (how many coins they hold). This means that the more coins a validator holds, the more likely they are to create the next block and earn the block reward. Proof of stake is intended to be a more energy-efficient alternative to proof of work, which is used by networks like Bitcoin.
