From transaction speeds to mining efficiency: Bitcoin Spark surpassing Solana & Polygon

While Solana (SOL) and Polygon (MATIC) have gained significant popularity, crypto watchers suggest that as Bitcoin Spark (BTCS) gains traction in the crypto market, its transaction speed and mining efficiency could see it surpass these cryptocurrencies. 

Solana news

Solana has faced a recent setback as cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp unveiled its plans to permanently halt trading for SOL alongside several other altcoins among its U.S.-based users from August 29th. Bitstamp cites the prevailing regulatory ambiguity within the United States as the driving factor behind this decision. This is because SOL and the affected altcoins were labeled securities by the SEC in the July lawsuits against crypto exchanges Binance and Coinbase. This has been cited as one of the reasons why Solana missed the opportunity to launch PayPal’s new stablecoin, PYUSD.

What is Polygon (MATIC)?

Polygon is a layer-2 scaling solution that aims to address the challenges of Ethereum. It provides a framework for creating and connecting Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks, referred to as sidechains. These sidechains offer faster and cheaper transactions while maintaining compatibility with the Ethereum mainnet. By enhancing the throughput and reducing transaction fees, Polygon enhances the user experience and encourages the development of decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts. MATIC is the native utility token of the Polygon ecosystem, facilitating transactions, powering decentralized applications, and providing rewards to participants who secure the network through staking.

Bitcoin Spark (BTCS): The evolution of Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin Spark is a new project that seeks to revolutionize the crypto landscape. It’s a hard fork of the original Bitcoin (BTC), retaining its favorable attributes while introducing features that enhance efficiency and accessibility. The network achieves faster transaction speeds than its predecessor by reducing block time and increasing individual transactional capabilities per block. It combines these improvements with a significantly increased number of nodes to ensure low transaction costs.

The Bitcoin Spark network uses a novel consensus mechanism that incorporates aspects of Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake, known as Proof-of-Process (PoP). The PoP requires miners to stake on the network and provide processing in order to validate blocks and earn rewards. The consensus mechanism is combined with a unique algorithm that constricts linear rewards based on stake size or raw processing power to ensure rewards are distributed more fairly. Bitcoin Spark’s development team will offer simple mining software that can be installed on any Windows, Android, Linux, iOS, Mac OS, and Windows device. They will also provide the network’s repository so that developers can build their own mining applications.

The miners’ processing power is rented out to the network’s clients, with the revenue generated going to the mining pool. The BTCS minting rewards are reduced when more revenue is generated, leading to the minting endpoint moving further. Notably, the revenue generation aspects of the network could see the network maintain a limited supply while providing constant profits to miners.

Analysts like Crypto Labs have discussed the project and its offerings, and they suggest it offers an opportunity comparable to the early days of Bitcoin (BTC). The project’s initial coin offering (ICO) has progressed to phase 2, selling BTCS at $1.75 and offering a 15% bonus on top.
