The Cardano mini review

This is the first in a five part series on those who would be king. The “Ethereum killers.” We’re kicking off today with Cardano.

The Cardano mini review

In the immortal words of grime superstar, Stormzy: “Heavy is the head that wears the crown.”

Or, I guess we could go with the Stormzy of 16th century Stratford-upon-Avon instead: “Uneasy is the head that wears a crown.”

Whichever works for you.

This was originally going to be the first in a five part series on those who would be king. The “Ethereum killers.”

Each part was going to cover one over the top five “Ethereum Killers” and follow a similar structure.

I was planning to give a summary of each project, followed by what I see as its major strengths, weaknesses and any red flags. Then give you links to where you can trade each project or find out more.

But since I wrote this mini review things have changed. My main deep dives are much more in-depth.

I cover a project's vision, tech, ease of use, adoption tokenomics and caveats.

So far I've written full reviews on Polkadot, Radix, Algorand, Solana, Mina Protocol, Fantom and more.

This is more of a mini review it's only around 1,800 words, rather than the usual 4,000-9,000.

Still, if you're looking into Cardano, it should be a good starting point. Especially if you don't want to get too overwhelmed.

So with that out of the way, let’s begin...

(But be warned. I’ve been listening to Alan Partridge’s new audiobook all this week and, as you may have already noticed, I can’t help writing in a very corny, Partridge-esque way today.)
