Quantstamp CEO: Cardano to Become 2nd Largest DeFi Platform this Year

Security Company: Cardano to Become the 2nd largest DeFi Platform


Quantstamp CEO Richard Ma, in a recent interview, says that Cardano will become the second largest DeFi platform behind Ethereum, and Cardano offers clear advantages over 3rd-place competitor Tezos.

Quantstamp CEO: Cardano to Become 2nd Largest Blockchain DeFi Platform to Ethereum, Tezos 3rd.

 Cardano has the Best Code

Ma also stated that Cardano's source-code is among the best in the blockchain space. After the successful Shelley Hard Fork on July 29, 2020, the foundation has been laid to compete with DeFi leader Ethereum.

    "The move to the Shelley era means Cardano will be the
2nd most popular smart contract platform, 2nd only to
Ethereum by the end of the year. As a proof of stake
system, it now dwarfs Tezos."
 

Previously, Quantstamp Manager Jaye Harill stated that Cardano could become the most popular DeFi platform due to its increasing popularity and progressive adaptation. Cardano will outshine its direct competitor Tezos.

Charles Hoskinson announced that Smart Contracts and Native Assets on the Cardano Blockchain will be released by the end of the year. According to Hoskinson, Cardano will have a significant advantage over its competitors through the new Hydra off-chain protocol, which allows transactions to be processed quickly and inexpensively with a lower latency than Ethereum.

The Blockchain Revolution That Began with Bitcoin, Continues with Cardano's Ouroboros

The Ouroboros Proof of Stake Protocol, Highly Scalable and Sustainably Secure

 
The Ouroboros proof-of-stake protocol (PoS) provides, and improves upon, the security guarantees of the proof-of-work protocol (PoW) established by Bitcoin - at a fraction of the time & cost. 
Ouroboros Proof of Stake Protocol for the Cardano Blockchain
Ouroboros is the 1st provably secure PoS protocol, and the 1st blockchain protocol to be based on peer-reviewed research; consequently, the result is a protocol with proven security guarantees able to facilitate the propagation of global, permission-less networks with minimal energy requirements.

"Ouroboros exists to define the parameters of the new world:
a protocol more secure, scalable, and energy-efficient than
anything that has come before."
 

 Incentives For Participants

To ensure the sustainability of the Cardano blockchain, the protocol features reward mechanism via the native ADA cryptocurrency;

  1. Rewards stake pool operators
  2. Passive income to ADA holders that delegate their ADA to a stake pool.
