#Cardano Con-Arguments Below is an argument written by Maleficent_Plankton which won 1st place in the Cardano Con-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > ###**Background** > > It has been half a year for Cardano ever since the Alonzo (smart contract) release, which revealed that it's very difficult to build a DEX for eUXTO transactions instead of account transactions. Even after the release of SundaeSwap and MinSwap, we've seen issues for DEX development. I'm still following the Cardano subreddit, and I think it's better now since its members are much less cultish/bullish than before. > > On the [Cardano development roadmap](https://roadmap.cardano.org/en/), there's only scaling (Basho) and governance (Voltaire) left, and Cardano's followers are much less excited about those updates as they were for the smart contracts. > > ###**Cardano Cons** > > **Current state of Cardano Smart Contracts and DEXs**: > > - **Programming adoption**: For Cardano's Plutus smart contract, Haskell is not a well-liked programming language and feels arcane in comparison the Javascript-like language of Ethereum's Solidity. It's been difficult to onboard smart contract developers, especially since Ethereum is already so far ahead on adoption. And most other smart contract networks also support Solidity. Cardano is alone on Haskell, making it expensive to develop for it. > * **DEX rollout** in the past 6 months was an absolute mess. Concurrency failures for the Minswap Dex during their Alonzo smart contract test revealed that it's much harder to develop a DEX on Cardano smart contracts due to the limitation of eUXTOs. Back in September, SundaeSwap published [a detailed explanation of the concurrency issues](https://sundaeswap-finance.medium.com/concurrency-state-cardano-c160f8c07575) plaguing Cardano. Proposed solutions involved centralization of the smart contract and using multiple UXTOs on a higher layer that would later settle on Layer 1. > * **SundaeSwap** finally released [an incomplete and slightly-buggy DEX](https://cryptobriefing.com/sundaeswap-promises-first-functional-dex-on-cardano/) on the testnet after many months of delays. It had [extremely slow speeds on SundaeSwap](https://beincrypto.com/cardanos-first-dex-sundaeswap-fails-to-impress-on-launch/) with a limit of only [9 users operations per minute per scooper](https://sundaeswap-finance.medium.com/expectations-congestion-mainnet-launch-e9da5abfd819). Their reputation was hurt badly after the [Cardstarter scandal](https://cardanofeed.com/cardstarter-and-sundaeswap-a-falling-out-story-42690.html) where SundaeSwap cheated their Cardstarter partner of initial rewards, in addition to rumors of front-running. > * **MinSwap** has now [doubled SundaeSwap in total locked value](https://defillama.com/chain/Cardano) in only 3 weeks, but even this DEX only sees a couple of million USD worth of swaps daily. No other Cardano DEX even come close in size. Compare this to a whopping [$1.2 billion daily volume for Ethereum network's Uniswap](https://coinranking.com/exchanges). In their defense, it's only been 1-2 months, so it could just take time to grow. Another downside is that neither of these exchanges natively support the most popular Cardano wallet, Yoroi. Instead, you have to install specialized extensions to use these DEXs due to DEX design complexities. > > **Scaling issues** > > * **Transaction speed**: ADA's current maximum transaction speed is about 8 TPS, which can [scale to 257 TPS](https://coinmarketcap.com/alexandria/article/a-deep-dive-into-cardano) without additional updates. While this was fine before the Alonso update, after the release of smart contracts, the network has become very congested. Top scaling is 1000 TPS without Hydra Layer 2 scaling. This is still nowhere near the limits needed for global adoption on Layer 1. Many of its competitors like Solana, Polygon, Algorand, and Terra, have surpassed its TPS. > * **Scaling** via Hydra and sharding is far away on their timeline (Basho update maybe Q2 2022 if there are no further delays). Hydra also uses multi-party state channels, which are not as simple or convenient to use as Layer 1. We still have scant information of the protocol on a detailed level. > * **Storage inefficiency**: Cardano: [12.26M transactions in 10.76 GB](https://blockchair.com/cardano) = 880 bytes / transaction. Ethereum: [1.27B transactions in 279 GB](https://blockchair.com/ethereum) = 218 bytes / transaction. Ethereum is 4x more storage-efficient even before Cardano releases smart contracts. If Cardano were to scale to 1000 TPS, it would increase its blocksize by at least 30 TB per year. > > > **Competitors** > > * Cardano's development has been extremely slow and delayed so much that its competitors have caught up: Cardano has fallen from #3 in market cap to #6 last year after Solana passed it, and it has further fallen to #8. There are so many (monolithic Layer 1) Ethereum competitors that can already do smart contracts with DEXs more efficiently with higher scalability than Cardano: Polygon, Terra, Algorand, Elrond. The academic researcher crowd that Cardano was targeting has moved onto supporting Algorand. Even if Cardano releases a working DEX, they're technologically-behind their competitors. > > **Fees**: > > * Cardano Transactions [fees](https://messari.io/asset/cardano/chart/txn-fee-avg) are currently about $0.40 - 0.50 USD as of Mar 2022. While these are cheaper than current Bitcoin network transaction fees of ~2-4 USD and much cheaper than Ethereum network transaction fees of 2-20+ USD, they're way more expensive than those of other many other competing crypto networks. Nano, ALGO, XLM, XRP, DASH, BCH, and MATIC fees are all below $0.01 on average, which makes them appropriate for microtransactions. > * Swap fees on MinSwap and SundaeSwap are way cheaper than on Ethereum, but still expensive at $2+ due to processing fees. > > **Diminishing Staking Rewards in the long run**: > > * Cardano is currently inflationary to about [5-6% annually](https://solberginvest.com/blog/is-cardano-deflationary/). The inflation by itself isn't bad, but it's coming from a diminishing rewards pool that will gradually disappear by 2030. In just 4 years from now, the staking reward will drop to 2-3% unless transaction fees rise drastically to replace the rewards pool. If it drops that low, people will stop staking Cardano, leading to less security and decentralization. > > Disclosure: I own a tiny bit of ADA. ***** Would you like to learn more?

So from your top 10: BCH, IOTA, DASH, NEM are probably cooked. They are #3, 7, 8, 9. The others are all still quite relevant. Also, LTC flirted with its 2017 high this bull run. It remained relevant, although far from a top story. I'd say the best strategy is probably similar to S&P500. Buy a market-weighted index. Even better if it's dynamic like S&P500 and auto-adjusts. That way you'll always catch the new trends and ditch the stuff that's fading out. Crypto top 25 is probably what you'd want.

No, BCH has been on a steady decline for 5 years, and IOTA isn't too similar, as are DASH and NEM is down 98% from its ATH. For most of the coins posted, this is significantly off their previous ATHs. Only ETH and BTC (and from this particular time, ADA) are anywhere near their values at this time and ADA and ETH went a lot higher than the values posted here at their heights.

> I think for most small transactions 0-conf works well enough Note that BCH has doublespend proofs now. These make it essentially impossible to perform the typical "fast respend" type merchant attacks. This means that the only way to effectively doublespend BCH at retail is to have a complicit miner that produces a special wallet that enables doublespending. Such a wallet would never be widely used (it wouldn't be accepted in any official "app store"). We are continuing to work towards closing that final gap with a technique to allow the possibility of non-corrupt miners to punish offending miners, but it's an idea that's still half-baked. > even if a ton of mining equipment gets liquidated, there's very little reason to think large entities/commercial entities won't still be able to mine more efficiently than small miners Mostly true. However I would expect the ratio of large/small miners to diminish. And with a flattening of ASIC production comes a reduced ability for large miners to gain a significant advantage through their ability to volume-buy next-generation hardware. It's by no means a silver bullet, but I would still expect to see improvement in hardware decentralization. > What do you see as a realistic market cap in such a scenario? No earthly clue 😂. The only point I was trying to make is that to the degree that the market cap is based on speculative money benefiting rich 1%ers, the energy usage will feel wasteful. To the degree that the market cap is based on real-world usage benefitting more people, it will feel less wasteful.

> Exchanges That's true, exchanges (and other large transactions) are special cases. I think for most small transactions 0-conf works well enough, because even if theft occurs the theft is likely to be small.

High price or low price, it doesn't really change the advantage. Personally I don't see pooled mining as such a huge issue, maybe there's a way to make that decentralized/trustless in a way, but I'd say the underlying centralization is a far bigger risk than pools. > Energy usage Yep, totally agreed. Some back of the napkin calculations say that with 1 billion txs a day, which is roughly 2000x what Bitcoin does now, average energy usage per transaction would be in the range of 0.7-1 kWh or so. To me that still feels kind of high, and this is based on Bitcoin's current market cap. > and the market cap becomes more proportional to the societal benefit.

Did you even look at the picture from the **top ten 5 years ago** in this post? Almost all of them are down from their values in Dec 2017, many of them massively (BCH, IOTA etc down more than 90%).

Mentions:#BCH

I think you raise excellent points. I won't try to "rebut" them as such but here are some counterarguments that may influence your opinion. 1. I don't agree that exchange transfer time is the best way to judge performance of a system that's intended for buying and selling things. I think exchange transfer time is a special case where thievery can be done at scale. Almost no purchase situations have that particular risk, especially not in person merchant transactions. >2. The centralization over time issue is just as prevalent in BCH as in BTC. This is an excellent point that cannot be disputed. My only counterpoint is that I am of the opinion that crypto in general is still in a long term "rampant speculation" bubble phase and miners are part of that. I believe crypto will eventually reach a hype plateau (if it hasn't already) after which we will have a long multi year (decade?) long downturn during which a shitton of mining equipment will be liquidated, and future investment in ASIC development will dry up. I think at that point we should expect to see a better distribution of mining hardware. Pooled mining is still a serious centralization flaw that doesn't have a current solution but should one ever surface I think BCH will be quick to adopt it if possible. That would be a game changer. >3. Energy usage, while theoretically far lower per transaction since BCH scales better, would be just as high in BCH as in BTC given similar market caps. This is generally true, but to me the energy consumption issue is a question of efficiency, not total consumption. If a billion people were using BCH every day then the current energy consumption could be much more easily justified because that energy would be going to serve a tangible benefit for a huge number of people and a much larger total economy. The fact that BTC consumes so much energy simply to create an online gambling casino for spectators is a big reason why I and others consider it a waste of energy. Thanks for polite and informed discussion :)

Very good point when you're talking about all the altcoins, but I've been following this closely since 2013, and studying the historical BTC charts prior to 2013, and with respect to Bitcoin **(BTC)**, I'm 99% sure we'll see a new ATH within the next 3 years. If history is any guide at all, BTC will soar to a new ATH > 200K by 2025, the year after the next halving. With respect to the alts, I wouldn't bet any significant money on any of them , but I slightly disagree with your assessment of BCH. That particular alt while having a *miserable* value trajectory since 2018 after an over-pumped spike in late 2017, actually is one of the few alts that conceivably *could* hit a new ATH. I' not saying I think it probable that it will, but it could. If BTC goes above 200K in the next major bull run (eg. 2025) it would not surprise me to see BCH ride the coat-tails up to 5K or even higher. BCH could be attractive for those who want a less expensive P2P e-cash alternative to BTC & who might own both (I own both). LTC I doubt it, and Dash I strongly doubt it (hate to say it because I own both those coins as well, couldn't resist buying up some of them while they are < $100, but it was just playing with fun money and I doubt they will go anywhere).

BCH has really a massive dip..wondering if it will recover

Mentions:#BCH

1. While BCH does scale better in terms of # of transactions, it still takes quite a while to transact. I know 0-conf fixes this, but 0-conf isn't really practical for large amounts, I think. A good proxy for this to me is the time it takes for exchanges to see a deposit as confirmed, which for BCH on Kraken for example is 2.5 hours (15 confs). 2. The centralization over time issue is just as prevalent in BCH as in BTC. I write more about this [here if you're interested](https://senatus.substack.com/p/why-99-of-cryptocurrencies-centralize), but in short Bitcoin mining is a business, one focused on cost efficiency since the revenue side is exogenous. Miners' costs are energy costs, buying ASICs, maintenance, capital costs etc. Almost all of these are costs where with scale, your cost per unit goes down. Because of this, large miners get ever bigger, which leads to degraded decentralization and security. 3. Energy usage, while theoretically far lower per transaction since BCH scales better, would be just as high in BCH as in BTC given similar market caps. I don't see energy usage as a problem per se, but do see it as an inefficiency and as an impediment to broad adoption since many people care about this. As you can see in my flair I'm personally more optimistic about Nano, but do think BCH has some important advantages: 1. More current adoption. BCH is far better known, has the Bitcoin name, and it's currently both far easier to spend and has more on and offramps. 2. Better marketing. BCH has a fair few good influencers (Roger Ver, Kim Dotcom come to mind) who do a great job pushing BCH usage. 3. It's closer to Bitcoin, so while Bitcoiners might be loath to switch to for example Nano (or IOTA, or ETH, any example works) BCH is close enough that those previously enthusiastic about Bitcoin have an "out" in going to BCH. Anyway, that's my 2 cents. What do you think?

The Sword of Schrodinger is hanging over it's head. Maybe they have been holding Satoshi for years trying to torture the keys out of him. Maybe they killed him trying. Maybe they got his keys, and are waiting until the Dollar is in Freefall to dump them on the market. The point is that there are giant bags out there ... and the banking industry has a lot of dollars. BCH and BSV are suspect as well, for the same reason. If a coin is largely held by an unidentified somebody, that person has the power to destroy it. This goes for any coin with a large premine. Coins that do not suffer this problem should set up a fund to reward Satoshi if he ever surfices, and then the premined coins should be abandoned, IMHO.

Well, to start. When it comes to Bitcoin you'll need a wallet for it, i'd recommend Electum, or a wallet that you would feel comfortable using (there's plenty out there to choose from). MyMonero isn't for Bitcoin, it's for XMR which is a privacy focused project. To change BTC or BCH to XMR, you would need some sort of exchange (there's lots of CEXs to choose from).

But note that not every coin that claims to have no premine is telling the truth. I just ran into one coin that made a bitcointalk annoucement, that said 'mining starts in 15 minutes'. What kind of non-premine is that, because the founders are best placed to start mining that. Who is going to mine a random coin like that, thats almost a premine. Overall, the whole space is filled with premined grifts, and I'd advice anyone to stick with bitcoin if they are for the long term, and buy monero for the privacy things.

>Hard forking with social consensus can "fix" anything. The point is, social slashing or DAO roll-backs is problematic. It requires central social coordination. Yes. I agree. Social slashing is the "going nuclear" option in case of emergency. The only time it'll ever come up is if the network is being attacked by a malicious majority, in which case we'd be very glad to have the option compared to not having the option in POW. Also if potential attackers are aware of the mechanism they're a lot less likely to try to accumulate a majority in the first place. Like a nuke, hopefully you never have to use it. >I specifically refer to 51% pool attacks... not generalised 51% attacks where an entity physically controls all miners or has all the stake private keys. A mining pool is in control of the *work* in POW. They're no different than one entity physically in control of all the private keys. If a pool changes protocol to start mining ABCoin there's nothing you can do as a miner except monitor for it and be prepared to move before you contribute any work, but no one is doing that. If you're specifically referring to 51% pool attacks, comparing POW to POS, then a pool with 51% can't really do anything in POS. They can censor a transaction but if at any point another validator picks it up it'll be processed, which is referred to as *weak* censorship. A POW pool with 51% of the hashrate can reverse transactions, censor, mint coins, etc. They're not very comparable. >Yes, if a majority of Bitcoin pools behave bad.. that PoW is lost. However, Bitcoin can permisonlessly *recover* without any social coordination nonsense. They in their own time.. point their miners elsewhere. I don't see how Bitcoin would recover from an attack without any social consensus. Were you here for the BCH fork? It was *nothing but* social coordination to keep people on "the real" BTC. I can't imagine each pool with their own unique fork trying to justify why *theirs is the real BTC* without some coordination around it, or else the chain will split into many contentious small chains. >With a 2/3 validator pool attack.. the attackers *drop* the other 1/3 honest blocks. If you're looking for a pool and one has 65% dominance and you add *more in* anyway, you should already know what happens next. People self regulate though. If a mining pool ever grows too large miners find other pools to use since they don't want to be responsible for attacking (and consequently losing) their investment. No reason POS would be different. If your staking pool is too large, withdraw and find another, and problem solved. The risks are lower and rewards higher in a small pool than in a large one so I think the markets will be in a good equibilirum as soon as people are able to '*withdraw* and find another'.

BCH could be easily twice as valuable as BTC. Even more, the update which defines bch was planed to BTC. But to be able to set a node in a toaster was put behind of being able to use it as a currency in the l1. But the holders and miners decided, and lighting still marginal
