Cardano operates under the guidance of IOHK [run by Charles Hoskinson who was an Ethereum co-founder] as well as EMURGO which oversees funding. The Cardano Foundation has a critical role in the advancement of “third-generation blockchain technology”. The Shelley Era will be fully implemented by the end of this year [if everything goes according to the set schedule].

Time and time again, Cardano has been approved by Weiss Ratings. Their research-based methodology is top-notch, though some have complained about the slow pace. The Korea Blockchain Contents Association [KBCA] along with the Korea Mobile Game Association [KMGA] have signed a memorandum of understanding with EMURGO. This will facilitate ADA adoption and blockchain awareness in South Korea.

Juan Villaverde of Weiss Ratings ranks Cardano as well as Fantom ahead of Bitcoin [in terms of technology]. Bitcoin has been criticized because of its non-scalable nature and the duration required by each transaction that nears completion. Do note that Bitcoin is a “First-Generation Blockchain” network, so problems can be common.
