Cardano is a security focused blockchain platform that provides a programmable blockchain and smart contracts for dApp development, similar to NEO and Ethereum. What differentiates between Cardano and the rest of the blockchain ecosystem is the team’s scientific, peer-reviewed approach, coupled with extreme transparency. This means that the Cardano project boasts a network of global researchers and scientists that have contributed to/developed an advanced blockchain protocol. All of Cardano’s protocol technology goes through an extensive peer review process, just like a scientific research essay would go through.
The project emerged in 2014, as a collection of revolutionary ideas and concepts derived from collective research and collaboration, focused on identifying the underlying limitations of existing blockchains. Eventually the team released a whitepaper, and their coding procedure follows the same principals – every ‘building block’ of code is carefully examined and peer-reviewed by the network of experts, before being added to the rest of the ‘blocks’.
The project is supported by 3 entities: The Cardno Foundation, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to promote and educate Cardano and blockchain technology as a whole whilst also working with governments around regulation; Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), an engineering company that develops blockchain solutions for academic institutions, corporations, and governments. The company is led by Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood, former CEO and Executive Assistant of, respectively. IOHK supports Cardano with more than just its extensive research team of highly accreditted individuals, with IOHK being responsible for the development of Cardano’s technology and digital wallet. It is important to note that IOHK also supports several other blockchain projects; Emurgo, a Japanese based company that aims to assist business and companies integration with Cardano’s blockchain.
Ziliqa (ZIL) -
One of the biggest challenges for blockchains right now, if not the biggest challenge, is scalability, or the ability to process more transactions in a shorter period of time.
Bitcoin has struggled to process transactions, and fees have risen accordingly. The same has happened with Ethereum, where the CryptoKitties craze in December 2017 ground the network nearly to a halt for about a week. Ethereum is banking on a switch to proof of stake as a consensus method and sharding to improve network throughput.
However, there is one public blockchain that is already designed with sharding working…
That blockchain is Zilliqa, which had its private ICO in late 2017 and a small public offering in January 2018, making it one of the first new tokens of 2018. Zilliqa is the only blockchain that has functioning sharding, which allows the blockchain to scale in a linear fashion as the network grows in size. Currently running on a testnet, Zilliqa expects to launch on main net in the third quarter of 2018.
This is a fundamental change to how a blockchain reaches consensus, as the sharding solution scales alongside the size of the Zilliqa network. In theory, Zilliqa has no limit on the number of transactions per second it could process.
In practice there are limits however, as the number of transactions processed is dependent on the number of nodes in the network. Ultimately however it’s reasonable to think that Zilliqa could process tens of thousands of transactions, and possibly even hundreds of thousands of transactions per second.
The Zilliqa team has also said that the blockchain will ultimately support smart contracts. This is a major technical hurdle, as running smart contracts on a sharded network poses many challenges.
QKC (QuarkChain) - QKC is a high speed blockchain with their eyes set on 100,000 TPS thanks to their reshardable two-layered blockchain. With 6450 nodes and 256 shards and presented a live demo of 10K+ TPS their testnet (now 2.0) is looking good. Mainnet is due to launch this quarter 2019 so it will be interesting to see if they can stick to that.
The company is still in their early stages and while their tech is promising, they are being followed by a lot of hype.
XLT is the native coin of the Stellite. Stellite is a cryptocurrency that aims to bring its users and the community a truly decentralised experience. The cryptocurrency uses all decentralisation enabled technologies in the market right now to provide its users complete decentralisation. The company uses IPFS and zeronet for decentralised seed storage.
The XLT coin is ranked as the 708th cryptocurrency by market capitalisation on coinmarket cap. The coin’s all-time high is $0.0016 and coin’s current price is $0.0000156 USD.
Enjin is behind a new class of tokens labeled ERC-1155, which are based on the blockchaine Ethereum and are mainly used in games
Enjin Launches Software Development Kit (SDK) for Unity's Most Used Developer Game Engine on March 14th. It is used by more than 4.5 million developers around the world, giving them the opportunity to implement ERC-1155 game tokens.
RVN Coin has the brighter future! RVN is the native cryptocurrency of the Ravencoin blockchain. The Ravencoin Blockchain is a blockchain that is specifically designed to allow and facilitate peer-to-peer transfer of assets and funds. The Ravencoin blockchain is dedicated and is specifically an asset transfer method. The blockchain heralds itself as the truth deliver-er to all participants on the ecosystem.
TOMO coin is the native coin of the TomoChain platform. TomoChain is a solution to and for the Ethereum Network’s scalability issues. On successful implementation on the Ethereum Blockchain, TomoChain is said to implement the same on all the other blockchains as well. The TomoChian uses 150-master nodes architecture and is said to use Proof-of-Stake-Voting consensus for a near-zero transaction fee and instantaneous transactions
