New Solution To Difficulty Stranding

One of the possible attacks a small Proof of Work (PoW) blockchain faces is called the Diff Strand Attack. The attack happens when malicious miners raise a small network’s hash rate and mining difficulty to extremely high levels very suddenly. Then, the malicious miners quickly abandon the network, leaving it stranded with such a high difficulty that the remaining miners are totally incapable of processing transactions or finding new blocks.

Komodo recently added slight changes to traditional Proof of Work rules to allow a network to quickly and naturally recover from a Diff Strand Attack. This new consensus method is called Adaptive Proof of Work (APoW).
