Integration of POS systems On Blockchain Technology (Benefits)
• Digital receipts to enhance security

• Transaction rewards for users
Our Proposed Solution
We introduce SapaNO Protocol
Consensus Algorithm (SPCA) which in POS transactions is applied every few seconds by all nodes, to maintain security, correctness and decentralization. sapaNO revises the existing POS consensus schemes to improve decentralization and fairness.
For decentralization, the protocol would offer mining opportunities to a wider set of stakeholders.
For fairness, the protocol will prevent fraudulent activities and fairly compensate affected parties if attacked. While ensuring fairness, the protocol will also have a reward mechanism that incentivizes clients.
Additionally, the protocol complements the existing proof of work-based cryptocurrencies to facilitate their transition to the proposed scheme and avoid bootstrapping complexities.
Instances of this protocol can be observed as with Bitcoin; where the challenge includes producing a nonce string which, when hashed with the block header, produces a lower value than the target threshold set by the system.
As a reward for the efforts, the block releases coins to the miner’s account. Once a block is published, all its transactions are approved and the block is added to the blockchain. These blocks are permanent and cannot be altered. In other words, cryptocurrencies are the first known form of currencies that are not tethered to some kind of trust-based system; they are incorruptible.
sapaNO Finance is grounded in a strong understanding of the disruptive nature of finance and technological innovation and uses a strategic way to think, act and improve financial services in order to promote the success of usability among users and businesses in the society.
