Here Is How Cardano (ADA) Could Eclipse Tron and Zilliqa To Become The TRUE Ethereum Killer

Exactly on the same day (July 30th) Justin Sun and the Tron Foundation launched the Tron Virtual Machine (TVM), the Cardano (ADA) project also released its IELE Virtual machine testnet. This new testnet will allow for developers to explore smart contracts as the team at Cardano plan on integrating the Virtual Machine into the Cardano blockchain. In the announcement, the Cardano team stated the following:

“We are excited to announce the IOHK launch of the second Cardano testnet, which is for the IELE virtual machine (VM) and follows the recent launch of the KEVM testnet. The technology is not only an important step on the Cardano roadmap but also for the industry – in offering robust and reliable financial infrastructure.” 

The announcement would go on to add how developers would use the new VM:

“Developers now have the opportunity to play around with the smart contracts technology that will eventually be offered as part of Cardano, and to provide their feedback, which we look forward to receiving over the coming months.”

“IELE is a virtual machine, with its attendant low-level language, designed to execute smart contracts on the Cardano blockchain.”

It is with the last statement that one begins to wonder if Cardano has all along been the silent Ethereum Killer and not Tron and Zilliqa as earlier predicted. The IELE Virtual Machine has been created through a strategy to make secure, reliable and efficient smart contracts that are easier to write. Many of the benefits on the Cardano Platform will appear later on but Solidity programmers will enjoy the following:

  • No arithmetic overflow for ‘INT’ and ‘UINT’ types
  • No stack overflow
  • Contracts are less error prone
  • Advanced security and reliability
  • Ability to program in more languages. It currently supports Solidity but plans are underway to add more such as Plutus

Also to note is that the IELE virtual machine’s instruction set is modeled after that of LLVM. LLVM is an open source technology that’s widely used, most notably in Apple’s toolset for building iPhone and Mac apps.

It is therefore with all these technological developments that it is safe to conclude that Cardano (ADA) can indeed end up being the Ethereum killer rather than Tron or Zilliqa. One advantage that Cardano has, is that the project has evolved out of scientific philosophy and a research-based approach. This means that every aspect of the project has been carefully scrutinized and tested before released to the public for use.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
