Is Delayed Proof of Work the Answer to 51% Attacks? [INTERVIEW]-15.84

Earlier in October, an ethical hacker who goes by the handle GeoCold on Twitter announced the live-streaming of a 51% attack on the alt coin Einsteinium. The plan was to gain control of the network and expose vulnerabilities that exist in conventional proof-of-work blockchains which allow for double-spending attacks. Only it didn’t go quite as planned.
