Some crypto connoisseurs question Cardano’s progress

The current discussion about the code quality of Cardano was triggered by a tweet from the user Red Pin. He was visibly pleased about the steady progress of the blockchain project. When a change has been completed by the developer, it is confirmed with a command called -commit. One Twitter user was skeptical about the extremely high number of 2,600 commits per week.

Crypto experts are fighting over the decentralized computing platform Cardano. While some praise the project for its scientific approach, others see this approach as lengthy, sluggish, and, therefore, accuse Cardano of being too slow to make progress. However, the project has gained tremendous momentum in the last 6 months and was able to present some important milestones.

Charles Hoskinson, a Colorado-based technology entrepreneur and mathematician and the owner of Cardano, is proud of this progress, which – despite (or perhaps because of?) the highly scientific approach – makes Cardano, in his opinion, the project with the best code.

Cardano sets the tone with 2,600 commits per week

The current discussion about the code quality of Cardano was triggered by a tweet from the user Red Pin. He was visibly pleased about the steady progress of the blockchain project. In his opinion, the progress Cardano made with Shelley was particularly noteworthy. It should be clear to everyone that such a project requires an enormous amount of development work.

A short excursus on how Github works

The numbers that Cardano presents are nevertheless interesting. A brief digression on that: Developers work on the majority of projects through the development platform Github. They work with so-called “repositories”. According to the translation, this is a camp. The idea behind it is that there is a central repository that can be developed further by all developers working distributed worldwide. Although the developers work on the code at the same time, they do not do this globally, but locally on their devices.

When a change has been completed by the developer, it is confirmed with a command called -commit. In a subsequent step, the changes could then be ‘pushed’ to the global repository. To cut a long story short: If you commit a lot, you work a lot on the code and make changes regularly. While these do not yet give a concrete indication of quality, they do show that people are working hard.

Charles Hoskinson is sarcastic with those who doubt Cardano

In addition, it was precisely this diligence that Hoskinson now took as an opportunity to make fun of those who had lost faith in the project. For example, he recited those who claimed that Cardano was a scam.

Cardano has the best code, according to Hoskinson

As mentioned earlier, a commit does not yet have any meaning in terms of code quality. One Twitter user was therefore skeptical about the extremely high number of 2,600 commits per week. Consequently, Cardano was asked how could even ensure that the committed code was of good quality, given this amount?

Hoskinson answered promptly, saying that Cardano has different quality mechanisms: There’s formal verification and quick checks. It results from the fact that Cardano has the best code quality.
