Charles Hoskinson, the founder and CEO of Cardano (ADA) has come with a series of updates for Cardano followers. Excited at the upcoming launches, Hoskinson said that the company is coming up with its versions of 1.3 and 1.4. Shelly and Prometheus are also around the corner. He has also left a message for Ethereum co-founder, Vitalik Buterin.
The upcoming Cardano 1.3
Motivated at the prospects, Hoskinson posted a video on Twitter, stating: “I want to announce that Cardano 1.3 has successfully gone through QA and we have begun the process of starting the update for everybody in the ecosystem.”
The proposal that will be submitted tomorrow, will start seeing the update in the next few days. The Cardano 1.3 update is going to provide memory improvement and efficiency improvement.

“Cardano 1.4 is on the horizon”
The humble crypto enthusist, who is looking forward to the promising Cardano 1.4, said: “Cardano 1.4 is going to be the largest update for Cardano”. The update will be huge for Cardano and it has got to offer “a lot of really good things under its hut”. “We are going to go from file systems that uses about 1.3 million files to store the blockchain to about 44,000. The wallet backend specification has been fully implemented,” said Hoskinson, striving to make Cardano, the best product in the market place.
The supposedly largest update is at the moment going through a lot of code refactoring and will improve its quality.
Talking about the combined benefit of 1.3 and 1.4, Hoskinson said: “As we get through 1.3 and 1.4, the Cardano code quality will definitely go to a point where a lot of people will be happy about it.”
Prometheus looking promising
Cardano wrote a parallel code base called Prometheus that is written based on Rust. It is a library of different functionality, which the third party should be able to use for their own product lines. Prometheus’ demo is coming in September. It’s has already been tested on Anroid and IoS devices. He sees Prometheus to be really promising.
He also stated that on 15th August, Cardano will announce the introduction of a new product that will be based on Promethus as its core. The product will be based on Google Chrome. So, basically, it will be an extension of Google Chrome.
For Shelly, Cardano will be ‘gradually rolling things out’. Shelly has now 21 major work units, some of which can be done in parallel and some can be done linearly, and will come out sometime this month.
Message for Vitalik Buterin
Reflecting upon Cardano and Vitalik Buterin’s debate, he said since “Reddit is not the proper place to have a debate”. So, this week, they will be posting a blog post, where Buterin and Hoskinson will be answering each other’s questions. He “hopes to have a vigorous debate with Mr Buterin” to understand about Casper which is still “murky” for Cardano’s understanding, “given that it is coming from multiple sources”.
