Cardano can Now Mint NFTs and Run DApps


Two days after Bitcoin created its 700,000th block amid much excitement, another significant cryptocurrency has blazed a corner.

Cardano, the Ethereum killer, proved that it has successfully knocked out the mentioned Alonzo update. It provides the long anticipated ‘smart contracts’ vision, the same feature that permits for non-fungible tokens, or NFTs. However, the platform’s creators said it would not feature the key use cases for some time.

The update puts Cardano in a straightforward matchup with Ethereum. It spreads more inflexibility in terms of operations like automated lending, non-fungible tokens, and more.

The Cardano blockchain, like Ethereum, is based on the proof-of-stake mechanism. The blockchain compels treasure troves to stake their own interest in crypto. Only those having the greatest portion of the pie will have rewards for their services. It minimizes the majority of computing power required for mining on a public blockchain. Therefore, it makes it either environmentally stable or sustainable.

Cardano’s Rise from Being One of the Least

Despite being mediocre, Ethereum outperforms Cardano in terms of overall market capitalization. On September 12, Ethereum’s huge $400 billion market cap stacked against Cardano’s $82 billion market cap. Nonetheless, Cardano has risen from being the least cryptocurrency to becoming one of the top five cryptocurrencies in the world in terms of market cap. It ranks third now, behind Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Ethereum’s London Hard Fork occurred on August 5 and envisions as the first step toward the platform’s interpretation2.0, which will thrive in the future. The new system moves the Ethereum blockchain towards the evidence-of-stake system like Cardano. Moreover, it reduces not just its environmental footmark but also the sale freights needed on the network. The price of Ether, the cryptocurrency that powers the Ethereum blockchain, has risen from roughly $2,700 on August 5 to $3,200 on September 12. While Cardano’s price has remained around $2.

Cardano’s High is Just the Start

Tim Harrison, Marketing and Communications Director of Input-Output Global, the architects of Cardano, stated in a blog post in response to Cardano’s recent high that it is simply the beginning. However, this is still a time for celebration. We’ve been on an incredible journey as a community.  

We should allow ourselves to recognize the enormous effort put in by so many to get there. This will also be an opportunity for us to reflect on the obstacles we have collectively conquered.

While Cardano’s price is now lower than that of Ethereum, the cryptocurrency has been achieving new highs. Over the last month, the request cap for ADA, Cardano’s native cryptocurrency, has nearly quadrupled. On August 31, the token defied decline predictions and reached an all-time high of $2.56, providing investors with almost 150 percent gains.

As previously said, building smart contracts makes the Cardano blockchain more durable and conducive, implying that it will have a successive operation. That is one of the primary reasons why many people in the blockchain and DeFi sector chose Ethereum over Bitcoin in the first place.

Harrison advised that while the prospects from Alonzo are high, some may be unreasonable. He wrote representing Cryptokitties, which was the first DApp launched on the Ethereum blockchain, that Cardano watchers may await a sophisticated ecosystem of consumer-ready DApps available incontinently after the upgrade. Prospects need management.
