Bitcoin (BTC) Price Today - BTC USD
Right now, the plan for CasperLabs is to support the majority of the research that Zamfir performs on PoS so that they can release a fully decentralized, sharded and scalable next generation blockchain. Zamfir added, in a discussion with CoinDesk, that he will be responsible for producing protocol specifications that support the CasperLabs team to help them understand the technology employed. Zamfir will not be taking on the coding of the blockchain however, as his role is purely for research purposes.So far, PoS has not really been involved in large scale testing.

Within the model, there are two designs that lead the way for implementation, and one of those was designed by Zamfir called Casper Correct by Construction (CBC).
