I can see the benefits of cardano but I don't think it can catch up ?
I hold ETH and I am excited for what it could do. But Solidity is hot garbage and that Python inspired alternative is a close second. I also don’t care about quantity of developers. These things deal with real money from real people, it demands a level of seriousness an average developer should run screaming from.
Also think you are confusing poorly made cookie cutter erc20 tokens as representative of smart contracts in general, it is most certainly all a mess, but perhaps those treating alpha software as production ready is the real problem?
Last i looked the biggest user of gas and thus what is keeping your jaded investment afloat is ENS, no token just a pure smart contact. It has been running fine for a year.
Sadly we have people investing into hairbrained marketing brochures created by unqualified people in their underwear rather than proven products, in a free world I see no solution to this other than education.
On the other side of the equation we have people like Dan Guido seeking funding to make formal verification frameworks and the commmunity barely even notices nor puts it on a pedestal like every doomed ico that comes along.
I just wanted to lament that for all the money sloshing around there isn't more work being done on security.
Also, Cardano is currently centralized and will be until 2018 at the earliest when further upgrades are made in an attempt to make it decentralized. Meanwhile, Ethereum is already decentralized and work is under way to upgrade it to massively increase its scalability. Ethereum is way ahead and has the critical mass of developer and industry support.
Seems to me that should be priority #1 considering there's potentially millions of $local_currency riding on these contracts and they seem to be done with the hard forks when one goes awry (though I was reading that they collude to make it really, really hard to sell off the ill gotten gains).
This is not actually possible, there could have been an issue with your threat model. e.g. side-channel attacks could be out of scope.
wait do the downvotes mean that some people actually use Scheme?

I have been experimenting with Pact that is written in Haskell and implements a non Turing complete Lisp language for writing contracts and provides a blockchain implementation. https://github.com/kadena-io/pact
I'm a bit confused by this article's introduction. Pyramid Scheme is a Scheme dialect implemented in another Scheme (RAcket). What does the whole thing have to do with Haskell?
Headlines coming next month on HN: "How I wrote an Ethereum clone in [Rust|Node.JS|Minecraft|Dwarf Fortress]".
Headline coming next year on HN: "Running the Linux kernel as a blockchain application".
Note that the state of the code is a messy PoC and abandonware - I hope to be able to pick up the ball here again at some point but probably not happening any time soon. If anyone really wants to continue on this and wants to take over as a maintainer, feel free to PM.
