The organization emphasizes that the new properties of the Cardano protocol guarantee a high degree of decentralization in the operation of the network.
Weiss Crypto Ratings, the portal that evaluates the commercial and technological properties associated with the main digital currencies, reported that Cardano’s protocol is far superior to that of EOS after testing with the Shelley testnet.
In a thread of messages published through its Twitter account, Weiss ensures that the new properties introduced by the next update for the Cardano protocol provide the network with greater functionality than seen in EOS, a network that faces strong centralization problems because of its stake model that does not allow people without guarantee funds to make transactions.
The comments of the Weiss team contrast sharply with the ranking presented by the China Industry Information and Development Center (CCID) to assess the main Blockchain networks, given that in recent months the EOS protocol occupies the first place global level.
According to the CEO of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson, the testnet version of Shelley offers a glimpse of what’s coming for Cardano’s future, as this new protocol would bring major changes to the network’s operating model, making it much more decentralized and offering interested parties the possibility of staking to participate as validators of transactions.
The announcements published in the Weiss Crypto Ratings Twitter account in favor of the Cardano protocol resulted in a large number of comments from the community, of which a large part supported the evaluation presented by the organization, while the other expressed against such allegations.
Among the favourable comments, people highlighted the strong scientific emphasis with which programmers advance in the development of the protocol, as well as the progress in decentralization that would lead Cardano to be one of the networks with greater guarantees in this area, continuing on the path of becoming what many define as the Internet of Blockchain.
On the other hand, the detractors to Weiss indicated that the allegations published by the investigation group lack technical support, precisely because they did not offer concrete evidence or rigorous studies to support such statements.
While Cardano still progresses slowly but steadily in the development of Shelley, the EOS protocol is constantly criticized because of its consensus system, where the responsibility for the processing of the blocks lies primarily with 21 validators, of which A good part operates from Chinese territory.
