Stacks (formerly Blockstack) seeks to power a new kind of decentralized internet, one that gives users more control over their data and makes it harder for content to be censored.

PoX uses miners and stackers. Miners log transactions, much as miners on the Bitcoin or Ethereum blockchains do, while stackers keep a copy of the blockchain, signaling which fork to mine on. Miners earn new STX from inflation and they pay to participate in BTC. That BTC gets distributed to stackers who have to stake STX.
