Algorand uses a "Pure-Proof-of-Stake" (PPoS) system where relay nodes store the entire ledger and non-relay nodes store up to approximately 1,000 blocks.
Avalanche consists of three individual blockchains: the "X-Chain", "C-Chain", and "P-Chain". Each chain uses a different consensus mechanism based on its distinct purpose.
Cardano is the only "Unspent Transaction Output" (UTXO)-based system in the comparison set. In Cardano, nodes store every transaction ever made.
Ethereum is a commonly used blockchain that transitioned from "Proof-of-Work" to "Proof-of-Stake".
In Hedera, “Proof-of-Stake” (PoS) is used to protect the network via a virtual-voting algorithm. Token holders stake Hedera’s native cryptocurrency to nodes, adding weight to a node’s voting power.
NEAR uses a variation of the "Proof-of-Stake" (PoS) consensus mechanism that is based on two rounds of consensus, where a block is considered finalized when it has received the first communication round.
In Polkadot’s “Nominated-Proof-of-Stake” (NPoS), each node delegates stake across 16 validators, among which the stake is divided equally.
Solana combines "Proof-of-History" (PoH) and "Proof-of-Stake" (PoS) consensus mechanisms, where the former processes transactions and the latter validates them.
In Tezos’ “Liquid-Proof-of-Stake” (LPoS) consensus mechanism, token holders delegate their validation rights to other token holders (called validators) without transferring ownership of their tokens.
