As the second most significant virtual currency in the market, Ethereum is a leading platform for ICOs and decentralized apps (dApps). But in recent times, Cardano has been making headways, threatening to take over the top position in the cryptocurrency ladder. But does Cardano (ADA) have any advantages over Ethereum? What makes Cardano special? Can it overthrow Ethereum anytime soon? Let’s find that all in this post.

The science behind Cardano

Like Ethereum, Cardano is a smart contract network that uses a layered architecture to focus on security. Cardano boasts to be the first blockchain project to be built on peer-reviewed hypothetical research and developed from a logical philosophy.

Cardano is used for sending and receiving virtual coinage and is home to the Ada virtual currency. This digital currency speaks to the fate of physical money, influencing plausible swift and easy to coordinate exchanges that are secure using cryptography.

Cardano (ADA) is more than a virtual currency; it is an innovative platform that is good for running monetary apps in the current world that’s utilized by individuals, associations, and governments all around the world every day.

Cardano was founded by the co-founder of Ethereum, Charles Hoskinson to provide a more balanced and sustainable environment for virtual currencies. According to their webpage, ADA is the only digital token that has a research-driven approach, meaning Cardano is the only open-source blockchain that undergoes a severe peer-review process by programmers and scientists in academia.

Advantages Cardano (ADA) has over Ethereum

There is no argument on Cardano’s digital currency, ADA, can bring about significant improvements in the cryptocurrency sphere. However, Ethereum, one of the most popular currencies in the crypto ecosystem, is standing on the way of Cardano reaching its goal.

Some of the advantages Cardano has over Ethereum includes Ada’s Salient Attributes. These attributes consist of:

Cardano’s two-layer network system: Cardano as a blockchain, comes with the two-layer system namely the Cardano Computer layer (CCL) and Cardano Settlement layer (CSL). The importance of these important layers is that they allow the platform to present a means through which changes can be made on the blockchain without the need for a fork as it is the norm with Ethereum and Bitcoin.

Security: Cardano operates on a proof-of-stake algorithm known as the Ourobus protocol that attributes better blockchain security in comparison to the protocol Ethereum uses. Additionally, Cardano is developed by a more secure programming language known as Haskel.

The Cardano (ADA) wallet: Cardano uses the crypto celebrated Daedalus wallet that offers secure storage for investors digital tokens and also offers friendly support that allows cross chain wallet settlements that incorporates Debit cards among other developments in their operations.

How will Cardano overthrow Ethereum?

Cardano’s Founder, Hoskinson, has had a relevant historical background and association with Ethereum being one of the original members who founded the powerful digital coin. With his knowledge on Ethereum’s blockchain operability, he went ahead to develop Ada to be more superior and effective than its nemesis.

During a Q/A session hosted by Google in London, Cardano’s founder presented a straightforward introduction and functionality of the 8th biggest crypto explaining its Ouroboros algorithm. IOHK’s media release after the session might not have mentioned any partnership’s in the offing, but analysts are reading more through the lines and are predicting Google’s partnership with Cardano (ADA) to replace Ethereum as the preferred smart contracts system provider.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
