The benefits of Serenity promises
The Update was originally scheduled earlier, the technical developments have brought some delays. So, it was mainly the DAO-Hack, as well as complications in connection with Sharding, which delayed the current developments.
Probably the biggest Change that awaits us in terms of Serenity, is the change from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake. Thus, the Proof-of-Work algorithm, which is also used on the Bitcoin Blockchain application, by a (supposedly) more effective variant to be replaced.
Proof of Stake is a consensus mechanism, in which the proportion of the Token in the entire network, the Miner is crucial, whether it is mines a Block successfully.
