On 9th August, the Co-Founder of IOHK and the Creator of Cardano protocol, Charles Hoskinson shot a rebuttal on Twitter against Vitalik Buterin’s accusations at Ouroboros. In the month of July, Buterin had posted on the subreddit of Ethereum, a few points regarding Ouroboros versus Casper.
Team A: Ouroboros; used by Cardano
Team B: Casper; used by Ethereum
Both the algorithms are based on the Proof-of-Stake protocol.
In response to this, Hoskinson tweeted a post containing Cardano’s official rebuttal to Buterin. The blog is titled ‘How does Casper compare to Ouroboros?’. Here, Ouroboros has been defined as ‘a formally specified and analyzed protocol with mathematically proven security guarantees based on clearly specified assumptions’.
