I am aware about PoW and PoA setups of ethereum private networks but would like to know if anyone could help or point me the direction how to build a hybrid PoW + PoS or PoW + PoA ethereum based network.

Is this something that can be done out of the box or with little code manipulation of the official ethereum distribution?

  • May I know what's your use case here? why do you need such a hybrid consensus system?

For POW + POA ... I don't think it makes sense to make this.
