Stacks blockchain instead of expending electrical and hardware costs, participants in proof-of-burn consensus do just that—they provably destroy (or “burn”) their own bitcoin as the economic cost for their participation. Every participant competing for the opportunity to write the next block must burn a certain amount of proof-of-work token (bitcoin) to enter the competition. A participant’s likelihood of winning the competition increases with the percentage of bitcoin they burn compared to other participants. The competition’s winner writes the block, collects transaction fees, and earns the block reward of Stacks tokens.
