The crypto rating firm furthered that Shelley, unlike upgrades launched by other cryptographic projects, is a much worthwhile development and not just as a tech upgrade.
Shelley would show the world that the team behind Cardano has the ability to live up to their billings and deliver their promises, Weiss added.
Nevertheless, Daniel Larmia, the CEO of Block.one, the tech company backing EOS cryptocurrency, sees the Shelley upgrade as nothing important stating that Cardano “completely unsuitable for most use cases.”
