The open source, decentralized blockchain and crypto project called Cardano is here to make a difference. But what sets it apart from the current crypto competitors? Comparing it with the other cryptocurrencies, it is surely a step forward in terms of innovative advancements. The completion between Cardano and Ethereum ETH is not that stiff. On the one hand, Cardano is on its way, but in case ETH was to make the required amendments and advancements shortly before Cardano, there are high chances for ETH to hold strong grounds in the crypto market as a dApp, i.e., decentralized application.
Since the two cryptocurrencies are so closely competing with each other, it is natural to ask that what sets Cardano apart. There are no questions around the potential of Cardano when it comes to the cryptocurrency and technology aspects. One thing that gives Cardano an edge over other cryptocurrencies are features such as the proof of stake (POS) protocol, the ground base of Cardano that offers a lot of security to the user, and the treasure system and governance system which is separate. Another unique feature that sets Cardano apart from the rest is that it has a layered foundation that enables it acts as a blockchain platform as well as cryptocurrency platform at the same time, a feature which you can’t find in the other cryptocurrency platforms.
The unique features of Cardano are a sense of promise to resolve many of the common cryptocurrency issues that other cryptocurrency platforms are struggling with. Cryptocurrency such as Ripple XRP, Ethereum ETH is also targeting the same solutions as Cardano, and this common purpose seems to attract extra attention to Cardano. The second generation smart contract was not able to fully handle the pre-existing issues; therefore, Cardano was built with an advanced third generation protocol. Cardano is a multi-layered answer as it offers the smooth transactions based on the ETH intelligent, smart contract system, and on the other hand, it also offers support for the decentralized applications aka the dApps.
