Will Cardano’s Alonzo Hard Fork Make it a DeFi Force?

Will Cardano’s Alonzo Hard Fork Make it a DeFi Force?

In light of Ethereum’s scalability issues, alternatives continue to jostle to attract projects. These include Solana, Tezos, and Near. On the other hand, Cardano’s efforts to build a dApp ecosystem are more deliberative.

Cardano was founded in 2015, and has grown tentatively since then. Cardano’s strategy involves peer-review, whereby its parent company, IOHK (Input Output), works with several universities on research and development.

This approach is different from the normal path of software development, whereby new features are introduced and adopted after members agree upon them. ____

As such, the growth of the Cardano ecosystem has happened in phases.

As part of the Goguen phase, the blockchain is set to undergo a hard fork, that is being referred to as the Alonzo hard fork. This is named after a mathematician called Alonzo Church, who was one of the important people in the history of computer science.

The key thing about the Alonzo hard fork is that it will introduce smart contracts. This will let people develop dApps on Cardano, meaning the trendiest blockchain use-cases such as DeFi functionality and NFT services, will become possible on Cardano.

Cardano is however focused on even more areas:

The Alonzo hard fork also means Cardano will enter the decentralized finance landscape, that is currently dominated by the likes of Ethereum, Binance, Solana, and Polkadot.

In anticipation of an influx of projects from the other ecosystems, Cardano has been building an ERC-20 converter that will allow tokens from Ethereum to be stored on their blockchain.

In particular, in contrast with other platforms that require users to lock their assets for a period of time, Cardano’s staking lets users earn passive income without having to lock their assets. This freedom can make Cardano an attractive staking option for many users.

The hard fork is set to occur in about 5 stages, beginning in June 2021, and culminating with the deployment of the new changes to the Cardano mainnet in September __________
