- Shelley introduces in Cardano a new consensus algorithm based on Proof of Participation (PoS).
- ADA token owners will be able to earn rewards for block production.
Decentralization has come to Cardano from Shelley, one of its most anticipated forks of 2020.
After almost a month of delay, the community finally witnessed yesterday the launch of this latest update. It allowed the Cardano blockchain to leave behind its centralized network scheme, known as Byron, to begin charting a new, more decentralized path with Shelley.
