I'm a developer looking into starting my first dApp project. I've been waiting for Cardano to release smart contracts due to Ethereum's insane gas fees and low transaction throughput.
I recently discovered another blockchain (Solana) that already supports smart contracts and has even cheaper transaction fees and very high transaction throughput. Since it's not even possible for me to build my project on Cardano at this moment, and my original reasons for considering Cardano were low fees and high TPS, I'm beginning to consider building on the Solana platform instead.
I'd like to get your insights on what unique advantages Cardano offers over other platforms before making my decision.
