Overall I concur with your opinion that Cardano has totally superior technology, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.
I just want to spark a thought for you there, which I got from Dr. Julian Hosp (founder of TenX):
Not always the better technology wins, e.g. if I recall correctly the TCP IP internet protocol. There were far superior ones but they didn’t make it, why? Because humanity did not need better ones for the things it wanted to do with it ( using internet, calling, etc )
That’s my feeling about Cardano a little bit. I do not say the same will happen for it, but I just have a slight feeling that this might happen.
But we still have zero clue for what blockchain / cryptocurrencies will be used in 5, 10, 20 years.
Maybe they’re gone, maybe they’re just used in companies as a ledger, maybe they’re gonna be the world currency. Who knows now? Nobody.
If the world wants to use blockchain / crypto as only a transmitter of money, in my opinion it could just settle down on Bitcoin because it has the furthest adoption.
If the world decides that all stocks are going to be traded via blockchain and this will be the main use case, maybe Stellar will be the winner.
If the world finds superior use cases where Bitcoin has too less options and governments want to come in as well, maybe it’s gonna be Cardano ( good regulatory reputation as far as I know ).
This is totally not facts and I have zero intend to FUD / shill any coin I mentioned, just wanted to give you my 2 lovelaces to that topic.
