In this video, our Co-founder and CTO, Barton Johnston, explains to you the following:

- What are the key limitations of Proof of Authority and how does Proof of Participation address them?
- What measures have been taken when designing Proof of Participation to ensure complete decentralization?
- What makes Proof of Participation more suitable for non-financial use cases than Proof of Authority?
