Cardano to launch Ourboros BFT hard fork in February

According to NewsLogical, as Cardano is getting closer to the full launch of Shelley's mainnet, some technical advances are expected in the coming weeks. One of them is the integration of the Ouroboros BFT consensus. It is said that this will be the first PoS consensus that matches the security of the PoW consensus. Ourboros BFT belongs to Ouroboros system, which also includes Ouroboros Classic and Ouroboros Genesis. On January 17th, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson revealed that Ourboros BFT hard fork will be launched in February. He hinted that the company had built the infrastructure to make the hard fork successful. A successful hard fork will bring Cardano closer to its goal of a fully decentralized smart contract blockchain platform.
