Hi all,

I've been working on a sidechain protocol with no trusted third party. You can find the whitepaper here.

Abstract. Coins is a Bitcoin extension designed for payments at scale.  We propose an efficient solution to the double-spending problem using a bitcoin-backed proof-of-stake.  Validators vote on sidechain blocks with one-time  signatures,  forming  a record that cannot be changed without destroying their collateral.  Every user can become a validator by locking bitcoins.  One-time signatures guarantee that validators lose their  stake  for  publishing  conflicting  histories.   Checkpoints  can  be  additionally secured with a bitcoin-backed proof-of-burn.  Assuming a rational majority of validators, the sidechain provides safety and liveness.  The sidechain’s footprint within bitcoin’s blockchain is minimal.  Spawning multiple, independent instances scales horizontally.

Your Feedback is highly appreciated!

Thanks!
