“We envision aelf as a highly efficient and customizable OS that will become the ‘Linux system’ for Blockchain. Take Linux as an example–Linux Kernel and various Linux versions constitute the large and successful Linux family. Linux Kernel resolves the most fundamental, critical and time-consuming parts, allowing other developers to make customized systems based on application scenarios and customer needs. This makes Linux the most popular server OS, and it supports all kinds of industries.”
What we don't like:
Ælf has a lot of competition as a platform coin. It doesn’t offer anything above its competitors while trying to become the next Ethereum, or as Ælf puts it, the Linux to Ethereum’s Microsoft. Ælf is more of an upgrade to Æternity. Eth will have strong competitors in the upcoming years. I don’t think it will be worried about Ælf.
What we like:
Ælf is a blockchain platform with the goal to upgrade the scaling issues currently facing Bitcoin and Ethereum. Ælf will use side chains for DAPPs as a way to declutter the main Ælf chain. Ælf will have cross-chain interaction allowing DAPPs to work with Bitcoin and other blockchains.
