Pyrin addresses the critical issue of securely providing proof of work without compromising security. While transactions themselves are secure, the verification process requires a separate set of parameters and programming. pyrin implements a technique called pruning, which involves removing data older than three days from the blockDAG. By limiting the available data, pyrin protects itself from the vulnerabilities associated with a 51% attack. Centralized manipulation becomes virtually impossible if more than 50% of the blockchain is not under the control of a single entity. The data beyond the three-day threshold is stored elsewhere, preventing hackers from accessing it and foiling any attempted takeover.

The GhostDAG protocol represents a significant step forward in addressing the limitations of traditional blockchains and the high level of security. By incorporating K-means clustering and a greedy algorithm, GhostDAG efficiently organizes data within the chain, while the use of pruning and permissionless accessibility enhances scalability and security. pyrin's innovative approach marks a notable milestone in the blockchain industry, offering a promising solution to the long-standing challenges of speed, scalability, and security.
