EOS vs Cardano

As many of you are already aware of, the crypto market is not in a good place at the moment. Numerous coins are losing their value, and nobody can tell for how long is the current bear trend going to hold.

However, the bear trend will eventually blow over, as it always does, and a new bull run can start at pretty much any time. Bearish behavior is bad for the market at the moment, but it can also provide an opportunity for investors who are interested in making a profit in the long run. Smart investors know that buying coins is less profitable when their price is on the rise. However, purchasing them when their value is low allows for some pretty good returns when the bulls return.

As always, the main question is — which coin to invest in? Well, we believe that altcoins like EOS and Cardano (ADA) are among the best ones. Both of these projects have a lot of potentials, and both are almost guaranteed to survive the altcoin apocalypse. Even so, the EOS vs Cardano rivalry continues to persist, and everyone wants to know which one holds more potential than the other. This is what we will try to answer today.

EOS vs Cardano

EOS and Cardano are two separate projects, but even so, they do share a number of similarities. For example, they both wish to change the world with their respective projects, take over Ethereum, and dominate the market.

At the time of writing, EOS holds the fifth place on CoinMarketCap’s list of largest cryptos, with a current price of $4.84. Cardano, on the other hand, holds the ninth spot, with a price of $0.063395.

Cardano is a relatively new project, even though it was conceptualized back in 2015. Its creator, Charles Hoskinson, set up a goal of creating a strong crypto that would have real quality. According to what we can see so far, he succeeded at doing this, and all aspects of Cardano are excellent. This includes its stability, technology, and even the team behind it.

EOS, on the other hand, has been around for much longer, and it started off as an ERC-20 token, meaning that it was created on Ethereum’s network. A few months ago, EOS has launched its own MainNet, which is a significant achievement. However, the MainNet soon proved to have quite a few bugs and glitches, which does spoil the impression somewhat.

When it comes to Cardano, the project is pretty similar to Ethereum. However, it uses the PoS algorithm in order to improve the blockchain’s speed and enhance the user experience. At the same time, it protects the components of decentralization, and it improves the security of transactions. Cardano has improved its speed, decentralization, and security, which are the biggest factors that lead to the balanced blockchain.

While the current technology is not good enough to perfect these aspects, Cardano has done as much as it could to come as close to perfection as possible. According to Hoskinson, the tech behind Bitcoin and Ethereum has reached a dead-end, and not much more can be expected from them. While the two started the crypto era, it is now up to the altcoins to continue its development and progress.

When it comes to EOS, it contrasts Cardano in several ways. EOS was created through the use of Delegated Proof-of-Stake, or DPoS. Its goal is to allow faster crypto adoption and on a larger scale. However, many would argue that this system damages the project’s decentralization. On the other hand, EOS has shown a lot of progress, it fixed its flaws, and it is among the best platforms for dApp creation. It’s free, it managed to tackle scalability issues that so many other coins have to deal with, and its development is still advancing at full speed.

In the end, the question of EOS vs Cardano still remains unanswered. Both coins are still being developed, and have a lot of potentials to change the world. They have capable teams, and even more capable leaders behind them. In the future, one of these might grow exponentially and leave the other one in the dust. However, for now, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to tell which one will end up a winner.

In their search for the next great investment opportunity, people often tend to run into Basic Attention Token (BAT). A lot of investors have developed a significant interest in the coin, and are wondering if things are truly as good as they seem.

With so many scams and fake coins out there, as well as bad investments that seem good at first, it is a good idea to be skeptical. However, in the case of BAT, many agree that the coin is an excellent investment that should not be missed or overlooked. So, today, we will discuss why this is, and why you should add BAT to your investment portfolio.

1. The project’s goal

BAT has a goal to solve a problem that all of us are already very familiar with, and that is the issue of online ads. For a lot of people, ads are annoying, often irrelevant, and they tend to pop up in all the wrong moments. No to mention that they are intrusive, advertisers steal or buy your private data in order to process it and target you with more appropriate ads, and more.

Most people choose to deal with this by installing ad block extensions. However, what if there is a better way to go around it?

This is where BAT comes in. The project uses its technology to solve this problem by blocking ads unless users decide to interact with them by…

How and when Electroneum (ETN) mass adoption will catch fire

Before we talk about how Electroneum is thriving towards mass adoption, let’s take on some basics. What is the meaning of “mass adoption” and what cryptocurrencies could really achieve it? The answer to these two questions will ultimately determine the destiny of the cryptoverse.

Sooner or later some tokens will become useful (and used by) a lot of people in the real world. That will create demand for those tokens and that demand will bring its value up. It will be the point at which the crypto market becomes mature, one that answers to real economic forces (such as supply and demand) instead of being a toy for speculators as it still is today.

So let’s start at the beginning. Mass adoption means that, given any kind of technology, product or commodity, at least seven out of ten people know what it and what they can do with it. This definition doesn’t take into account if they actually use it, only if they know about it. Think about Facebook, for instance. Not everybody you know has an active account there.

But chances are almost everybody you know understands what it is and that they could start using it anytime they wanted (if they’re not using it already) at a rate higher than 70%. Maybe a more explicit example is coffee. The percentage of coffee drinkers in the US is about 83% which is enough to ensure it’s mass-adopted. And everybody…

Stellar Lumens and XLM: All you need to know

Stellar

Stellar Lumens is a blockchain project that includes the XLM token. It’s meant to connect banks, payments, and people. How? By making money transfers around the world quicker, safer, more efficient, available to people that are usually outside the banking system at a cost so low that it’s almost free.

Millions of people are using Stellar already. It’s considered to be the closest project to Ripple (hence, its main competitor). But Stellar has found more use cases than Ripple so far and a strategic alliance with IBM. Those two things will end up determining Stellar’s success in the long run.

Stellar’s leadership, staff, and the team have raised a few doubts in the past. This project was founded by Jed McCaleb who also founded Ripple and eDonkey. The network’s governance and centralization could improve regarding transparency as well.

That being said, Stellar’s adoption and development have grown exponentially in a short time. It’s become one of the leaders regarding blockchain structure. And it’s been in the crypto verse’s spotlight for several reasons.

With all those successes, Stellar Lumens could do a better job when it comes to decentralized apps. In third-generation blockchain projects, smart contracts and dApps are crucial. This could allow competitors like Tron, Ripple or EOS to gain advantages over Stellar.

But Stellar’s versatility is such that it might disrupt many different markets. As a payment tool, it can affect the virtual (and the real-world)…
