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

Published

on

Cardano

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.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”

Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
