Cardano price — will it surge?

Source: Coinbase blog

Cardano (ADA) is a peer-to-peer public blockchain and cryptocurrency project. The project was started by Charles Hoskinson, one of the co-founders of Ethereum. The goal of Cardano is to allow complex financial instruments such as smart contracts to be built on a secure and reliable platform using academic research into cryptography, game theory, and cryptography by leading academic scientists. It was built on the Haskell code, with emphasis on interoperability, sustainability, modularity, and sustainability.

Cardano’s consensus mechanism makes use of committees known as ‘Gods’ who are voted in by stakeholders through stake pools that represent their economic power within the system. The “Plasma” protocol is a smart contract platform developed by Cardano that has similarities with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

The project is still in the ICO stage and there is no working platform for use. The goal of the project is to create a decentralized cryptocurrency with the security and flexibility needed for financial contracts, bringing help to users who want to create, trade, or build their financial services.

Cardano is your secure mate!

Cardano is a platform that has been built mainly with security and scalability in mind. It aims to provide advanced features to meet the needs of users and institutions. Cardano is a project reportedly led by Hoskinson, who founded Ethereum. He also co-founded Invictus Innovations, a blockchain venture firm that began developing Cardano. Cardano is ensured via an “environmentally sustainable, verifiably secure” PoS policy that is known as Ouroboros.

The project asserts that Ouroboros enhances the security ensures that are provided by a PoW consensus mechanism while employing substantially minor power — alleging that it is a maximum of four times more energy-efficient than Bitcoin.

The ADA cryptocurrency rides on the Cardano platform, which provides the services needed to run financial applications on blockchain technology. Cardano’s blockchain is built on a layered approach that is designed to allow flexibility in the future. It consists of three layers of technology: the Cardano Settlement Layer, the Cardano Computation Layer, and the Cardano Control Layer.

Why is Cardano reliable?

Cardano claims to offer superior security and scalability, making it one of the most secure blockchain platforms on the market today. The platform was intentionally designed in a way that allows for rapid growth and can scale quickly as needed. The architecture of Cardano makes it easier for developers to create applications on its platform because it allows for multiple programming languages including C++, Rust, Haskell, Python, and JavaScript, and supports other programming languages in development as technology progresses over time.

Cardano Development Phases!

Cardano is being erected in five phases toward accomplishing its goal of evolving the network into a decentralized application (DApp) development platform with verifiable smart contracts and a multi-asset ledger. Each of the five phases is quoted after a significant historical figure and is colloquially pertained to as an era.

The five phases, or eras, are:

  • Foundation (Byron era)
  • Decentralization (Shelley era)
  • Smart Contracts (Goguen era)
  • Scaling (Basho era)
  • Governance (Voltaire era)

Get.Set.Surge!

The increase in utility of the Ethereum blockchain has made the gas fee go up. A small transaction may cost up to a few hundred dollars of the transaction fee, affecting the small-scale and home-based traders. So, evolutionary chains like Cardano will become the best alternative for ethereum. This will create demand against the supply of ADA, making its price hit the roof. It is projected that ADA could hit $2.51 in 2022, by digitalcoin.
