About Cardano

Like Ethereum, Cardano is a blockchain platform on which smart contracts and DApps (decentralized applications) can be developed. On top of that, one of the founders of the project is a former CEO of Ethereum. A comparison between the two platforms is therefore easily made.

Cardano uses the proof-of-stake (POS) protocol and is a so-called third generation blockchain. This means that the platform's focus is efficiency and scalability. Ethereum, on the other hand, is a second-generation blockchain because it still uses the proof-of-work (POW) protocol and requires a lot more energy.

Cardano's source code, the computer language that forms the foundation of the protocol, has been fully tested according to the scientific method. This is unique in the blockchain world. A network of researchers and scientists scans the code for errors or bugs, so the entire code is screened by this network of experts.

Cardano will keep on developing based on a democratic voting system. Users can vote for new updates and other modifications. In other words, the majority of the network decides on the future of Cardano.
