Why Hedera Hashgraph (HBAR)?
Hedera Hashgraph is one cryptocurrency project that’s taken a completely different approach to creating distributed ledger technology.
Over the past years, Hedera Hashgraph has made incredible strides towards institutional adoption and has secured multiple institutional partnerships putting the crypto project ahead of many in the area of enterprise-focused projects by the end of 2021.
Hashgraph is an open review consensus algorithm developed in 2016 by Dr. Leemon Baird.
Hedera is the decentralized public network and governing council-owned and governed by a global council, including Baird’s company Swirlds Corporation.
HBAR’s coins are used to power decentralized applications, make payments, and secure Hedera’s Proof-of-Stake network. Dr. Leemon Baird’s Hashgraph technology is a compelling alternative to blockchain, now popularly called the next-generation blockchain.
As a blockchain, Hashgraph is a decentralized and public distributed ledger. However, the way it works differs from blockchains in several ways and even offers some vast improvements.
Hashgraphs make use of DAG- Directed Acyclic Graph architecture which is much different from native blockchain architectures.
Hashgraphs solve the same problems that a blockchain does but differently.
Hedera Hashgraph brings three primary services to general users and developers in the crypto space.
- A cryptocurrency that can handle up to 10,000 transactions per second.
- Offers Scalable Smart Contracts.
- File Service.
The potential applications of Hashgraph, similar to blockchain, are infinite, from settling micropayments to music and intellectual property rights, supply chain management, decentralized advertising, DeFi, IoT, etc.
There are over 300 Dapps built on the Hashgraph platform, including the Digital Health and Connected Diagnostics Platform, SAFE Health System Inc, used by over 150,000 users at Delta, Arizona State University the Coupon Bureau.
Below is a list of decentralized applications built and now Live on the Hedera Mainnet:
ADPROV, ADSDAX, ALL OVER CHAIN, ARMADA CHAIN, BINSIGNIA, CARBON, CERTARA, CHAINLINK, COINSQUAD, EARTHTILE, EVEC, HASH-HASH, HASHING SYSTEMS, HABRPRICE, HEX, HMANAGER, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY VAULT, LONESTAR DATA TECHNOLOGIES, MYEARTH.ID, MYHBARWALLET, OTRAFY, PLAYHASH, POWER TRANSITION, REJOLUT, TUNE.FM, ZABO.

Hedera Hashgraph (HBAR)’s Competition analysis with similar projects
Comparing HBAR Hashgraph to Bitcoin and Ethereum based on Transaction fee and Security
With Bitcoin and Ethereum’s transaction speeds at 7 TPS and 15 TPS, respectively, HBAR’s Hashgraph transaction speed is at 10k TPS. Transaction fees on Ethereum and Bitcoin can be up to $0.03 – $10.00 or more in some cases where the network is congested.
With no miners to compensate as Hedera Hashgraph use a Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm, fees on the network can stay at $0.0001 irrespective of the network congestion and paid in HBARs, making it stable and attractive for enterprise use and adoption.
Bitcoin and Ethereum currently use the Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm, while Hashgraph using an aBFT Asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm claims to have the highest level of Security for a consensus algorithm.
Hashgraphs aBFT algorithm can achieve consensus with 100% finality by assuming that messages within honest nodes will be delayed or never reach their recipient, such as in a case of a malicious attack.
Hedera also doesn’t require energy-heavy Proof-of-Work resources.
For diversity and stability, Hedera is backed by a council of 39 term-limited organizations and Blue-chip enterprises representing 18 industries worldwide, including Australia, Japan, South America, and India.
