Lease Proof of Stake (LPoS)

The NIX Network allows for a smart-contract lease of coins. Lease staking allows users to lease coin amounts to be staked by another address/entity while still containing total ownership of those coins. The lease staker is a partial owner to the coins being that they are only able to stake those coins on behalf of the original owner.

This introduces safe and secure ways to stake on the cloud, or trustlessly stake using a third-party provider.
