“>3rd generation blockchain technologies”
I’m starting to hear this thrown around, Cardano (ADA) from IOHK praises itself as a 3rd generation blockchain not to say that its not a promising project. It’s just: What makes a blockchain generation? Goals of the technology? General advancements in the field? I saw Ethereum, Bitcoin and the sorts as advancing technologies so where does this buzzword fall into place? How would you describe it?
Also hello, I’m a noob that’s fascinated by distributed networks/ledgers, after learning about the actual dept of the blockchain world I demanded from social security to get me on the path to school. I’ll be asking lots of general questions and poking my nose at possible routes to education and possibly development in the space. Big fan of functional programming.
