Chia Network develops a blockchain and smart transaction platform based on storage-based mining. Unlike other cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum which rely on proof of work to validate their network transactions, Chia is based on a proof of space-time consensus algorithm. In this case, a Chia farmer (akin to a miner) is responsible for sending a proof to a verifier of a transaction. In the case of Chia, solid-state drives (SSD) or hard-drive disks (HDD) are used to store the data. A better blockchain and smart transaction platform which is more decentralized, more efficient, and more secure.
