Hadera Hashgraph is a private distributed ledger technology that is considered an alternative to blockchain. The hashgraph technology is patented by Hadera Hashgraph. With Hadera Hashgraph for each update of the permissioned blockchain, a transaction “hash” is sent to the Hadera public ledger. This creates an immutable transaction “hash” that guarantees transaction information remains private and secure while being completely auditable by approved authorizing powers. Hadera Hashgraph is super fast and can process thousands of transactions in seconds. The prices for this service scale linearly with usage. Many popular blockchain frameworks can connect with this solution. Hadera Hashgraph is also a cryptocurrency listed as HBAR and has consistently performed quite well.

Hadera Hasgraph is a new technology and can have a slight learning curve getting your processes up and running. The cost can seem a bit expensive, but you really do get what you pay for.

Cardano is a public blockchain platform built through peer-reviewed research and is open source. Cardano is secure - it can protect the data of billions, scalable to accommodate many global systems, and robust enough to support any foundational change. Cardano is built on Ouroboros proof-of-stake consensus protocol and developed using Haskell language that enables Cardano to pursue evidence-based creation for reliable security and stability. Cardano is a very highly regarded cryptocurrency, listed as ADA.

Cardano has some known issues with synchronizations between ledgers. It is also still working on becoming fully decentralized. Cardano is known as the “academic” blockchain, and although that can be beneficial at times, it seems to make the progress to move forward a bit slow.


We researched both of these solutions and in the end, chose Hadera Hashgraph. We like the new innovation with the distributed ledger technology and we also like that so many other blockchain frameworks (including Cardano) work seamlessly with Hadera Hashgraph.
