The HederaStarter launchpad has announced that they will be launching on the Hedera Hashgraph Network in the coming months leading up to the finalization of smart contract deployment on the Hedera network. Unbeknownst to many within the crypto industry at large, the Hedera Hashgraph Network is about to become a major player in the smart contract space in the coming months. Most people likely know Hedera because of its unique currency logo, the aptly named HBAR (ℏ) but aside from the logo they may know a little about it having something to do with a ‘hashgraph’ though likely not much else. With that being said a short time needs to be spent discussing Hedera’s cutting-edge development and how it’s arrived at its current position in the industry, and why Hedera releasing smart contracts is shaping up to be one of the biggest events of 2022.
To be upfront with it, Hedera isn’t a blockchain in the traditional sense, it is a Hashgraph. A hashgraph is a distributed consensus algorithm invented by Dr. Leemon Baird (who also Co-Founded Hedera and is the Chief Scientist) and this feature is primarily why Hedera is about to take the smart contract industry by storm. The Hashgraph algorithm provides near-perfect efficiency in bandwidth (data upload/download) usage and is thus able to support and process hundreds of thousands of transactions per second in a single shard (A shard being a fully connected peer-2-peer mesh of decentralized nodes in the network).
So now that it is clear that Hedera isn’t a blockchain per se, it’s the right time to discuss some of the further goings on which haven’t really been picked up by the public but demonstrate why Hedera’s introduction to the smart contract space is significant, to say the least.
Hedera has actual real-world business support. The network is actively being researched, and utilized by industry leaders in enterprise settings. Titans of industry by the likes of Google, IBM, LG, Boeing and now Ubisoft comprise a group of twenty-seven industry leaders which make up the Hedera Governance Council (which will eventually expand to thirty-nine members). This Governance Council helps foster and govern the stability of the Hedera network by directly operating high-grade nodes, guiding the direction of the Hedera Hashgraph codebase to ensure it is capable of servicing the industry represented by each council member, and managing the Hedera treasury to guide the network’s continued growth and development. This partnership and guidance from companies with decades of experience in their industries is completely invaluable in the inevitable translation of cryptocurrency’s innovations, Hedera’s innovations, into industries that are in dire need of these unique developments, and they’ve chosen Hedera.
On top of these deep business connections, Hedera has gotten to the point where Smart Contracts are only a short time away. Hedera has chosen to implement smart contracts such that they are EVM compatible and coded entirely in Solidity, this means that spinning up and deploying applications on Hedera is cheaper and more efficient than doing it natively on Ethereum and makes the migration of users and developers over to Hedera much easier. Hedera is already a PoS network and combining that with its Fair-Ordering transaction system, its fees that cost fractions of a cent, and its sub-five-second finality means that it has all of the pieces in place to begin wrestling with the likes of the Ethereum, Solana, Avalanche and Fantoms of the industry. The smart contract service is the final piece to the proverbial puzzle and Hedera’s deployment of them is imminent.
Shima Capital said,
“The Hedera Hashgraph network is in a prime position to experience expansive growth as the network implements EVM compatibility, allowing smart contracts to be written and deployed in Solidity. HederaStarter will contribute significantly to this growth as the network’s leading launchpad. Unlike other launchpads, HederaStarter is able to generate a unique culture on Hedera that differentiates it from other smart contract platforms. HederaStarter’s role in the Hedera ecosystem and the recent implementation of EVM compatible smart contracts are game-changing developments for the Hedera network.”
Some major items concerning the Hedera Network have been already discussed but focus should be put on something that probably many readers were curious about when clicking the link to this article, HederaStarter, what’s that?
HederaStarter is designed to be the go-to launchpad for the Hedera ecosystem, the team consists of highly experienced software developers, business development professionals, and many other battle-tested cryptocurrency professionals who are all intimately familiar with growing and developing ecosystems. Hedera is at an inflexion point and it has all of the necessary pieces; the robust code base, unique features which place it far ahead of its peers *cough hashgraph cough*, and the business partnerships to implement it at the enterprise level, and HederaStarter may be the last component that is needed to take the next step in growth for the Hedera ecosystem.
Conor Devlin, Co-Founder and Head of Business Development, shares,
HederaStarter has recently completed its initial funding rounds and the team has already begun laying the foundation for the HederaStarter Launchpad dApp. The dApp is being tested internally with an expected release in late Q1 of 2022, following the IDO of the native HederaStarter token, ticker: $HSTART. Coming articles as well as videos will discuss the complete ins and outs of HederaStarter and they will unveil the hard work that is being continuously put into the project.
The Hedera Hashgraph Network is about to open the floodgates with its approaching release of smart contracts, join HederaStarter and help in building the Hedera ecosystem into the best in the entire market.
HederaStarter aims to become the leading launchpad platform on the Hedera Hashgraph Network. Run by a team of highly-experienced builders capable of funding and launching projects that will be designed to serve both the users of the Hedera ecosystem and help expand the ecosystem as a whole. The team’s primary goal is to ensure that they build with integrity. HederaStarter wants to build authentic relationships with all the teams and projects they launch and more importantly build healthy relationships with the Hedera community. It serves them at the end of the day and HederaStarter success is Hedera community success.
