It's the 'no nonsense' blockchain

📚 Blockchain Primer: Cardano's UTXO Model - Simply ExplainedIn this post from November, we took a look at Cardano's UTXO model and why it's a core pillar of the ecosystem 👇https://www.emurgo.io/en/blog/blockchain-primer-cardanos-utxo-model-simply-explained

Luckely. Hope he is wrong. I am a believer in blockchain technology.

His opinion on Bitcoin having no intrinsic value is different to blockchain technology. People are just of the era where for something to have value it needs to be tangible. However humanity is moving to technology and the internet. I've seen a digital gun on a game be sold for $2k. That gun is just pixels on a screen. The data companies collect on you is not tangible, but has value. The thing that is going against crypto at the moment is the volatility of the assets. Adoption needs to go up and the assets need to be spread between more people. A whale should not be able to move the market as much as they do

Bitcoin has very little use apart from sending a digital token from one person to another. The name is probably what gives it the value it has. People still want to buy and sell bitcoin. Blockchain technology, like Cardano is being designed to have use cases. There will be product on the end of it which will bring in its own value, rather than just relying on a finite amount of people wanting to trade a digital asset, speculating on when is good to buy and sell.

Have you seen Charles' recent interview on the "Unqualified Opinions" podcast from Messari: "Building Cardano with IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson"?There are very few people who have created a top 20 cryptocurrency. Charles Hoskinson is one of them. In this conversation, Charles details his cryptocurrency and blockchain path, ultimately leading to the creating of Cardano.Charles also details how he structured Cardano "like a DARPA project" with a deep focus on R&D and why they're concentrating heavily on development in Africa. He lays out his philosophy and strategy for building a network that will one day no longer be reliant on its founders and how he views the overall competitive landscape.

maybe the reason why media is spreading fear, is because its been told to spread fear, to cause markets crash. Also media is usually owned by some old rich people, who if get infected have good chance(15%) to die

Corona Virus is definitely seen as a death sentence for certain people at the moment. I don't hold bitcoin myself, mistake or not, I'm comfortable with my decisions. Bitcoin definitely has its name and rarity of tokens. I either imagine it one day (in years to come), being worthless, other Blockchains will break away from being defined in this bubble of Crypto dominated by bitcoin. Or Bitcoin will remain, but there will be so few of them, that the tokens will be seen like an antique and hold a value of something ridiculous like a million dollars or more. However they will only be traded in private auctions. Many more people will lose their keys or take them to their grave

Certainly not right now. But Cardano isn't to bitcoin like ERC 20 coins are to Ethereum. Yeah in a way it's a shame ADA was released in that time. It meant the value was dragged up to its ATH along with other tokens, then dragged back down again, nothing to do with Cardano. Some say it reached that value without a working product. I'm more of the opinion it was a new rider that boarded the rollercoaster mid ride. Will be really interesting to see where things are in a few years. If Cardano is successful and it's being used to its full potential, the majority of ada holders wont be Crypto Traders and long term Speculators (hodlers) anymore. The majority of people holding ada will be for real uses, completely separate from the current state of crypto. Instead of holding an asset hoping it will increase in value, or trading the volatility of crypto. A consumer could be using ada and the cardano blockchain to verify a real world product. Value will come into it, but not in the same way crypto is now

In light of the recent Cardano update from Charles Hoskinson about the Ouroboros Hydra paper, and for those who wish to get more information on this, please refer to the following link, where you can download/view the PDF file: https://eprint.iacr.org/2020/299 or get it directly via this message: https://eprint.iacr.org/2020/299.pdfExcerpt from the Hydra paper's introduction: "Abstract: State channels are an attractive layer-two solution for improving the throughput and latency of blockchains. They offer optimistic fast offchain settlement of payments and rapid offchain evolution of smart contracts between multiple parties without imposing any additional assumptions beyond those of the underlying blockchain. In the case of disputes, or if a party fails to respond, cryptographic evidence collected in the offchain channel is used to settle the last confirmed state onchain, such that in-progress contracts can be continued under mainchain consensus. A serious disadvantage present in current layer-two state channel protocols is that existing layer-one smart contract infrastructure and contract code cannot be reused offchain without change. In this paper, we introduce Hydra, an isomorphic multi-party state channel. Hydra simplifies offchain protocol and contract development by directly adopting the layer-one smart contract system. We present the onchain contracts to open and close Hydra heads (our isomorphic state channels) and a novel offchain protocol for fast evolution of heads. We establish strong security properties for the protocol, and we present and evaluate extensive simulation results that demonstrate that Hydra approaches the physical limits of the network in terms of transaction confirmation time and throughput while keeping storage requirements at the lowest possible."

So we need a paper on how to decouple silently from BTC in a way nobody presages it or even notice it and ... puff... we are set free

there cant be a paper about decoupling...iohk,emurgo and cf are building a platform.if nobody is gonna use this platform we will still be a speculative asset.if governments and end users will find use in the cardano blockchain,then they will use it and then they will care less about btc...decoupling happens with adoption.yes,there are other projects that are pumping when btc doesn't.but the question is,will they have a steady grow in the next few years?

ada is like oil, the fuel that runs the blockchain

Ive never seen anything like it. Global travel suspended, financial markets in meltdown and Bitcoin falling from what $8000 to £3800 and then back up to $5300 ?I thought Bitcoin was going to offer a safer alternative to fiat currencies but it looks as all markets are panic selling into fiat currency ?I hope we see some of the alts bounce back now against BTC. I’m still down a lot since April 2019 and with BTC price my portfolio is not looking pretty !

The notion of Bitcoin as a 'safe haven' was just a narrative proposed by maximalists... Bitcoin has only ever lived in an equities bull market, and so there was no history to support the idea that it would act as a magnet for fleeing capital in a recession. At best, Bitcoin looked like uncorrelated alpha ..but as we're whitnessing, the market is treating it like any other speculative or risky asset and selling when the environment becomes 'risk-off'. If we're really at the beginning of a global recession then Bitcoin will have some time to prove itself .. perhaps it makes a spectacular recovery and it's where some amount of scared capital runs to when things start to get really bleak in traditional markets... but if the current charts are telling us anything, they're suggesting that this is less likely to happen. I still like the fundamentals of Bitcoin.. it's a really robust form of money for the current era... but it doesn't work without this collective understanding and agreement to lockup some amount wealth within the blockchain.

Btc was overated. Cardano and Vechain is the future.

It is still overrated at crazy 64% dominance. I’m quite immune to all that BTC shilling coming from old whales. Blockchain tech will win. Bitcoin? Not interested

Yeah it was a relief to hear the supreme court take a stand. India market is huge for crypto. All industries can be upgraded with blockchain tech

Sps

Yeah india has had a lot of Blockchain startups cropping up. Plus i dont think they'll let go of the revenues now. Banning it also means creating a parallel shadow economy for tax evasion

Yep. Blockchain in governance would benefit the country greatly. Will bring more transparency

Jamón Serrano
Based on what?

based on the fact that they have a blockchain which is being adopted already by one (small) country and generating alot of interest from financial secotr

As a result of the ICO mania of 2017, over 95% of successful ICOs and cryptocurrency projects will fail and their investors will lose money. The other 5% of projects will become the new Apple, Google or Alibaba in the cryptoindustry. Will ADA be among those 5%?Hard to tell but probability for that is fairly high as ADA has built a reputation of an academic and serious project that might move slow, but radiates professionalism and instills trust in their hodlers. Charles Hoskinson is the public face of the project and seems to be in charge of all major aspects of the Cardano blockchain: from the code development to business activities along with interacting with community and keeping them in the loop.In 2020, ADA needs to make sure not to miss any deadlines (like they used to in the past) and deliver what they promise to keep their spot under the sun of crowded dapps platforms niche.Considering Ethereum is still a re-inventing themselves with a complete makeover of its ground working principles, ADA has a unique opportunity to seize the throne from Ethereum and become the default dapps platform for the future.

Cardano is the absolute most promising blockchain

The coming 2-5 years will tell how blockchain adoption will change business of today.
