Kraken Exchange: Research-Driven Approach Makes Cardano Stand Out Among Competitors

Kraken, one of the world’s largest exchanges, has recently published an article to highlight the major difference between Cardano, the largest proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain, and Ethereum, the largest smart contracts platform.

In the last few days, Cardano and Ethereum have been going head to head in terms of transaction volume. And Cardano, in these scenarios, has been proving to be the major Ethereum competitor in the crypto space.

In the post, Kraken pointed out that Cardano blockchain is majorly designed to allow the transaction of its native token ADA and to give developers the enablement to securely build decentralized applications (DApps) on it.

Cardano’s Research Driven Approach

According to Kraken, a research-driven approach to design makes Cardano blockchain stand out among other competitors, especially Ethereum.

Kraken Exchange noted:

“Cardano differs from other blockchain projects by emphasizing a research-driven approach to design, aiming to achieve an academic rigor it believes will propel adoption of its technology.

 “While Cardano may not promise new ground-breaking features, users and developers may find its cryptocurrency offers appealing optimizations based on scientific research and formal verification, a process by which its code is verified mathematically.”

The crypto exchange also emphasized Cardano’s mode of releasing products since 2017, stating that all have been playing out in phases:

 “Cardano is released in phases and has seen 5 major platform upgrades since 2017, including Byron, which enabled the transfer for ADA cryptocurrency for the first time and Voltaire, which introduced a new model for how users could fund development for software changes.”

Cardano’s Plan to Boost Capacity and Performance as More Projects Launches

In the last few days, there has been an increase in activity on the Cardano blockchain, which calls for a boost in the network’s capacity.

In this regard, on 20th January, IOG announced the start of the update proposal process to boost the scalability of Cardano’s smart contracts platform, Plutus.
