Why PoS is a gamble and PoW is not
Something that crossed my mind. Certainly I am also not a Ether-Maxi, since I am still using the US dollar to measure monetary gain. Looking at the economics and therefore at the monetary risk of an ETH investor I tried to compare mining vs staking. **Mining:** You buy hardware worth $1000 and ramp up your business. (1) If the ETH price keeps stable or rises you gain +X% p.a. (2) If ETH price drops to zero, you still sit on $1000 hardware - depreciation%. All in all being a miner is totally risk-averse. **Staking:** You own $1000 in ETH and put it into a staking pool. (1) If the ETH price keeps stable or rises you gain +X% p.a. (2) If ETH price drops to zero you are out of business. 0$ left. Being a staker is a complete gamble. I feel that this comparison is very important in any economic investment opportunity. It makes PoS ETH so much more unfriendly for the sane investor. I love ETH and PoS, but this could be a significant issue. What do you think?
