Major Cardano Milestone: How Shelley Improves Stability and Decentralization
-Bitcoin news, price, information & analysis Yesterday, CEO of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson announced the completion of a significant roadmap goal. The Shelley phase relates to stability, interoperability, and governance. But more than that, the primary objective behind it is the decentralization of the Cardano network via staking. The soul of Shelley is out ? Charles Hoskinson (@IOHK_Charles) April 17, 2019 Under Shelley, Cardano will provide incentives to those who actively participate in the Proof of Stake consensus protocol. However, what makes Cardano different, is that Cardano acknowledges that not everyone wants to run an active node 24/7. For that reason, ADA holders have the option to delegate their stake to a staking pool.

Cardano 1.5 released on testnet
Today we release Cardano 1.5 on the Cardano testnet in preparation for the later release to the mainnet. The Cardano 1.5 release is a milestone because it is the last Cardano release of the Byron development phase, which we have been in since the launch of mainnet. Cardano 1.5 is important in preparation for moving to the Shelley development phase. This update brings a new consensus protocol, Ouroboros BFT, which is a key step in the transition from Ouroboros Classic, the current consensus protocol running the Cardano network, to Ouroboros Genesis, the protocol for the Shelley era. Ouroboros Genesis is a major upgrade to the protocol that underpins Cardano because it is first proof-of-stake protocol that matches the security guarantees of proof-of-work protocols such as Bitcoin.
