Cardano continues to ship out impressive code in comparation with other Smart Contract platforms like Solana. This fast-paced innovation has no doubt hit a few bumps in the road in terms of what is being shipped out to the community and how safe it is for investors.
If there’s one thing that Cardano is known for, it’s that all of its code is carefully written before being made available for the general public to use. This is in no way a point against the network given the amount of exploitation that is carried out on a daily basis in the crypto space.
Charles Hoskinson has revealed that some amazing things will be coming out soon, around the Input Endorsers which have been in development for a while. According to Charles these Input Endorsers enable the network to work faster by splitting a single block into two. Scheduled to go into effect after the “Vasil Hard Fork” one half of the split block will be used as a consensus block and the other to hold transaction data. This will further accelerate the speed of the already fast network.
The Direction of Cardano Architecture, John Woods stated:
“If we decompose it, we split the block into two. So, we no longer have a single block on the network, but we now have two blocks. And we use one block to hold transactions and another block to achieve consensus.”
To compare, while the Cardano network has been running for five years, the Solana network has had multiple downtimes. In the space of the last month alone, Solana has experienced a total blackout two times that have left users unable to transact on the network.
They found out that the best way to ship code out was to follow cardano’s way of writing and shipping codes. This doesn’t happen as often because the investors are usually the ones who lose money.
