How to Stake With Hydra on Linux
Hydra employs PoS (Proof of Stake) consensus mechanism, which is different from Bitcoin’s PoW (Proof of Work). The mining process in PoS system is called staking. Basic requirements for staking:
- Run a Hydra fullnode, and keep online (Since Hydra is using PoS, we don’t need any mining machine, just PC or even Raspberry Pi can run a fullnode);
- Have some Hydra in the wallet (fullnode)（Any amount of Hydra can be used for staking, more Hydra means higher possibility to stake).
If you have no Hydra yet, please get some from market before you doing following staking settings. Currently, Hydra Core wallet is the only wallet that support Hydra PoS staking. Note that other wallets like mobile wallet and Hydra Electrum are not able to stake for the time being.
How Transactions Work
Inspect Raw Transaction
In this chapter they will examine the raw transaction data to understand how payment transactions work.
- How the sender construct a transaction to express how much money transfer and to whom
- How the sender proves ownership of an UTXO
- How the sender creates a new UTXO as payment, and make sure that only the intended receiver can cliam it
Originally in 2018 Hydra was designed as a component of LockTrip (LOC), which was later decided to be unpegged and separated as a standalone project. This essentially means HYDRA is a blockchain that was developed by a team that had a unique practical usage perspective as a DaPP developer first. A unique perspective that has put the focus on critical economic limitations of existing chains and made it possible for next-generation block economy to be iterated.
The decision came through a community vote. The LockTrip community evaluated HYDRA as an extraordinary project with unique economic and technical capabilities and far too big potential that deserved to be unpegged and put on its own independent trail.
In this context, Hydra Chain has been financed and developed by the LockTrip team and community, the distribution of the HYDRA coins will happen to LOC holders proportionally to the amount they hold, over a gradual 12-month process. The launch of the blockchain is planned in three stages, of which each is described briefly below.
