The more popular a crypto is, the more frequent the amount of users on chain can change as new users start and others end their transfers. Special announcements by Charles Hoskinson, creator of the crypto, or promotions by popular influencers can have an effect on how many people are using the Cardano network right now.
The amount of active users you see above is the closest estimate of how many people are transacting with Cardano at this moment all over the world in real-time, this figure is as estimated using our Gohost Network Protocol technology, otherwise known as GNP.
This cryptocurrency started development in 2015. Initial launch was in 2017 by Charles Hoskinson. Charles Hoskinson co-founded IOHK. IOHK is a blockchain engineering company focused on the development of Cardano, alongside the Cardano Foundation and Emurgo.
There is no white paper for the project. However, Cardano uses design principles intended to overcome scalability, interoperability, and regulatory compliance in a proof-of-stake protocol named Ouroboros.
Hoskinson estimated the Cardano network used 6 GWh annually. Which is less than 0.01% of the 110.53 TWh used by the Bitcoin network as estimated by the University of Cambridge. Ada, the token of Cardano, exists on the settlement layer. Ada mixes two layers, where one is similar to Bitcoin and keeps track of transactions. On the other layer, it is a computation layer similar to Ethereum.
The computation layer enables smart contracts and applications to run on the platform. Plutus is a Turing-complete smart contract language written in Haskell, and a specialized smart contract.
Marlowe is designed for non-programmers in the financial sector and allows for smart contract languages. Developers can run end-to-end tests on their program without leaving the integrated development environment or code deployment. More About Cardano.
