What is Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) – Explanation

Definition: Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) is a form of consensus algorithm, where voters vote for block producers (sometimes called witnesses) who then perform the block creation and enforce the consensus. In order to vote a voter needs funds. And the voting power is proportionally to the amount of tokens or coins a voter has (or stakes).
