Cardano: A cryptocurrency on the rise by Ethereum’s founder

Cardano (ADA) is a decentralised, open-source blockchain with a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Ethereum, announced it as a blockchain that outperforms Ethereum’s proof of work (PoW) method. Ethereum, a second-generation blockchain, was created in response to the scalability concerns that plagued Bitcoin, a first-generation blockchain. Aside from completing financial transactions, Ethereum provides a higher level of programmability to its users. It gives developers access to the Ethereum blockchain, allowing them to experiment with code and create decentralised apps (DApps). Hoskinson departed Ethereum after a disagreement with Vitalik Buterin, another co-founder, over Hoskinson’s desire to turn Ethereum into a for-profit corporation, which Buterin refused to agree to. As a result, Cardano is classified as one of the ‘Ethereum-killers,’ a group of third-generation blockchains that aim to outperform Ethereum.
