Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano (ADA), has announced a series of planned enhancements for the ninth-largest crypto asset by market cap, which he claims will result in substantial speed gains.
Hoskinson claims in a new video that Cardano will be able to match the performance of Solana (SOL) and other smart contract-enabled blockchains later this year.
He says, this year, all of these changes will be released that will vastly improve the system’s scalability and expressiveness, allowing it to achieve the same level of performance as systems like Solana and others, or at the very least on the same scale.
Some of Cardano’s new features, according to Hoskinson, will go live in June and October of this year.
According to the smart contracts platform developer, ADA will be able to compete with other cryptocurrencies while also providing a strong and dedicated community.
“Not only do you get all the security, the correctness, the resilience and a great three-million person community but you also get the best of what competitors are bringing to bear.”
Cardano’s top three priorities, according to Hoskinson, for the next 12 months are “commercial comparability, sustainability, and self-determination.”
