- Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson invites John Woods to move Algorand to the Cardano ecosystem as a sidechain.
- Cardano has earlier launched a toolkit to enable developers to easily and successfully build a blockchain for specific use cases.
John Woods, the Chief Technical Officer of the Algorand Foundation recently informed its community members about the current state of staking on the Algorand platform. He also spoke on the security features and the prospects of the network. Interestingly, he commended Cardano for being one of the leading Delegated Proof-of-Stake (PoS) protocols.
In response, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson made a call to Wood, asking him to consider transferring his layer-1 network codes to the Cardano network. He believes that this could be of help in offsetting some of its weaknesses.

Sidechains are very rampant in the crypto ecosystem. They usually depend on the security infrastructure of their parent chains to operate to their full potential.
Cardano stands tall in terms of developers’ strength and the decentralized nature of its ecosystem. Despite the thriving ecosystem of Algorand, it would still have a lot to benefit from Cardano. Reports further disclose that Hoskinson has shown a willingness to assist the move by Algorand.
Algorand currently has a market capitalization of $829 million. The shared autonomous nature of the blockchain systems is said to make this proposition a hard one. It is said that Proof of Stake protocols usually works through the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) system.
Cardano Introduces Sidechain Toolkit for Such Course
Cardano has always sought to expand its ecosystem with the company behind the network launching a toolkit for building custom sidechains. This is to enable developers to build blockchains for specific use cases.

Decentralization and interoperability are key to the future of blockchain. These features ensure that no person or entity is able to control a blockchain, or be restricted to just one ecosystem. To grow, from both engineering and social perspectives, most applications and communities need to be empowered with their own sovereignty and design choices.
With the toolkit, sidechains would be able to get their own consensus algorithm and features. According to a blog post, the toolkit is meant for “distributed application (DApp) developers, stake pool operators (SPOs), and DApp users” to benefit from custom sidechains. In any decision for Algorand to move to Cardano, it can benefit from interoperability, scalability, testability, and compatibility.
With the interoperability, the blog post states:
The most basic form of communication between a main chain and sidechain is the exchange of assets. Because assets retain their nature when transferred to the sidechain, they can be transferred back just as easily. A bridge mechanism enables this communication. As long as both chains are secure, this security is carried on to the two-way transfers.
Algorand is not also doing badly as it sealed a technical partnership with the football governing body FIFA ahead of the 2022 world cup in Qatar. Algorand was to assist FIFA in developing its digital asset strategy while FIFA gave it exposure, advertising, and promotional opportunities.
As of press time, Cardano (ADA) was trading at $0.287389 and had fallen by 0.49 percent in the last seven days. Algorand was also trading at $0.105054 and had fallen by 13 percent in the last seven days.
