Cardano was founded in 2015 by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson. The Cardano main net went live in late September 2017, which means we’re coming up on Cardano’s 4-year anniversary.
👨💻Concurrency Issue Explained👨💻
Cardano uses an improved version of the UTXO model which makes it possible to do things like mint new tokens without smart contracts, which is why it’s called extended UTXO or eUTXO for short, Conversely, Ethereum requires a smart contract to mint and move tokens. This is a part of why Ethereum’s transaction fees are so expensive, While Cardano’s approach means its dApps will be much cheaper to use and also faster, many of them could experience concurrency issues if they’re not designed properly,

➕Cardano dApp Browser Extension➕
The obvious choice here is Emurgo’s Yoroi browser wallet extension, and if you’re a diehard Cardanian, you’ll know that Yoroi is colloquially referred to as Cardano’s Metamask, Interestingly enough though, it looks like the go-to browser extension wallet for Cardano will be the Nami wallet which I’ll leave a link to in the video description,
😱Cardano dApp Concerns😱
Cardano has over 1.6 million users, and its community is arguably the most active in cryptocurrency. This is incredible, but it’s also a developer’s worst nightmare because they know there’s no way in hell their dApps can handle that kind of traffic. Heck, even the front-end website will struggle to load.
