Proof-of-Time (PoT) is a consensus algorithm that is based on Delegated Proof of-Stake (DPoS) and PoS (PoS) PoT uses a ranking system, alongside a voting and delegation system. PoH uses a Verifiable Delay Function (VDF) to verify transactions, similar to PoW (PoW) PoH also uses VDFs to verify how much time has passed between two events.
