Cardano is another crypto project that can be wowed due to what it offers. As a third generation cryptocurrency, Cardano brings to life, equitable solutions to human problems via it's virtual state. From my research, The use cases of Cardano has been basically refined to settle in on Academia but keeps evolving being an open source system to embrace other areas of development. It's major use cases I outline here are some major ones Cardano offers which many users will see fit to use:
1. Credentials Certification and Verification which allows users to securely store academic certificates on an immutable and tamper-proof ecosystem. The arm responsible for this is called Atala PRISM. Now speaking of how this goes into helping us in the real world, we get to have our certificates free from the burdens of having to store them physically and create problems like fire hazards that will lead to loss of the certificates or storing in a bank vault which incurs cost. Also being stored on a blockchain, it can be easily accessed in times of need and verified by organization that needs it. This real time use case of what Atlas PRIME offers show the strength in which Cardano is building in offering what it gives users.
2. Counterfeiting Product problems are solved by Atlas SCAN which leverages blockchain technology to prove a product auditability as being original. In my research in how this works, codes verified by the company are attached to the product and can be scanned using Atlas SCAN to prove if it's number matches that of what was released from the company and can be mutated after confirmation to prevent copying by a counterfeit product. This real world use case helps eliminate costs, reduce risk and further reduces Counterfeiting.
3. Supply Chain Tracking with Atala Trace and this use case helps agricultural farmers and processing industries to keep track of their incoming goods
4. Digital Identity via Atala PRISM helps keep user identity proof which can be used in KYC situations and more.
All this use cases makes Cardano a onestop blockchain for solving real time problems. I have interacted with it's speed of transactions and the security of its network is second to none. It's a great project which I really hope garners enough adoption as this will help reduce costs in our everyday life and bolster ease of doing things.
