The algorithm Proof of Stake (PoS) chooses the nodes who has a bigger “stake” of the cryptocurrency. This means that the higher the stake, the better. The algorithm is efficient because it does not require a great computational capacity. Additionally, the malicious behaviors are not likely, because they punish the nodes with higher participation, which are the biggest stakers.
