    When it comes to mining cryptocurrencies, there are currently two well established protocols and they areProof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS).

    However, there is a third mining algorithm that many people may not have heard of: Proof-of-Capacity.

    Indeed, it is not entirely unreasonable to assume this. Proof-of-Capacity is a really new mining algorithm that is currently only being used by one Cryptocurrency called Burstcoin.

    Despite this though, there are many who think that proof of capacity is a viable alternative to the currently established methods of mining. So what is Proof-of-Capacity and why is it viewed as such a great mining solution?

    Before we go over the technicalities of PoC, it helps to take a look at how the popular mining algorithms currently work.
