Cardano has been at the center of both rabid praise and mass criticism since its release in September of 2017. The digital token separates itself from the crowd with its rapidly advancing technology, its unique multi-layer architecture, and by using mathematical principles in its consensus mechanism. Yet claims of difficulty for programmers, especially in launching decentralized applications (dApps) on the Cardano ecosystem, have continued to bog down one of the more promising cryptocurrencies available.
In the middle of September, Cardano ushered in the ability to utilize smart contracts via implementing the Alonzo hard fork. Many investors saw that as a sign that dApps would shortly follow, yet the opposite has been true. A variety of issues surrounding the Alonzo fork caused several dApps to delay their launch on the Cardano network. Now, nearly three months later, the problems persist and the Cardano horizon is still void of any dApp with full functionality.
Recently, Cardano Founder Charles Hoskinson hit back at critics saying,
Cardano has continued to be a favorite of some investors while remaining in the crosshairs of others. For mass adoption to happen, Cardano needs to not only answer some of the questions that have been doggin’ it recently but prove to both developers and the investors that their network can easily support a variety of dApps and achieve its full functionality.
