Video: What is Ouroboros Samisika? | Mina Protocol

Here is the latest excellent video from Brandon from the Mina Foundation. This time he is explaining Mina’s version of Cardano Protocol’s Ouroboros (Ouroboros Samisika), a provably secure PoS protocol that combines the best features of each iteration of Ouroboros to deliver a PoS mechanism that can resolve long-range forks without requiring history or risking centralisation.

Blockchains don’t have to be complicated, in fact understanding Mina is as simple as playing a game of darts!
