PoA vs PoS sidechains

There are two projects I am following out there looking the same and working on scaling Ethereum via side-chains.

One is Loom loomx.io which claims to build PoS side-chains,

The other one is POA Network poa.network, which builds side-chains on PoA.

Which one has advantage over another?

ethereum
sidechain

PoA sacrifices decentralization in favour of security, while PoS allows max decentralization and scalability, but is weaker in terms of security.
Both have advantages and disadvantages. A good article about different blockchains/consenus mechanisms tradeoffs here https://medium.com/loom-network/scalability-tradeoffs-why-the-ethereum-killer-hasnt-arrived-yet-8f60a88e46c0

POS is more popular

POS is more popular

you mean POA? because there are no 'real' point of sales systems in place as of yet.

...sidechains such as the Loom Network and POA are tackling the layer 2 scaling from different angles but I wouldn't say that because something like POS is popular that it makes it the right fit for the problem...ijs
