Cardano News

Cardano is a blockchain-based smart contract platform that aims to compete against similar platforms such as Ethereum, Tezos, and EOS, among others, through a more modular, layered protocol that runs on a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm called Ouroboros.

Identifying itself as a third-generation blockchain and cryptocurrency system following Bitcoin and Ethereum, Cardano’s development is quite different from its competitors in that it is heavily informed by theoretical, peer-reviewed research before implementation in software.
