Cardano

Cardano is a blockchain created to process transactions using a dedicated cryptocurrency called ADA. ADA is named after Ada Lovelace, the 19th-century mathematician often referred to as the “world’s first computer programmer”. Cardano’s goal is to become the next generation of blockchains - to be more flexible, scalable, and to operate as an ecosystem that allows to operate interchangeably between different blockchains. Cardano is one of the biggest cryptocurrencies based on market cap - which has been at 8 -figures range, with about 33 billion coins in circulation and a maximum supply of 45 billion.

Cardano was built to be an alternative to Ethereum, similarly, it has smart contract functionality where developers can build decentralised apps (dApps) and decentralised finance (DeFi) platforms. The blockchain prides itself on being an innovative platform for visionaries, they call themselves Crypto 3.0. It’s unique in the way that it uses proof-of-stake (PoS) protocols to validate transactions, which is much more energy efficient than proof-of-work. For now, Cardano is the largest proof-of-stake cryptocurrency. It was launched in 2017 and was created by Ethereum co-founder, Charles Hoskinson. Hoskinson’s goal was to improve as opposed to the predecessors, Bitcoin and Ethereum, and make a more environmentally sustainable blockchain. 

ADA, the native coin, can be used for investment purposes, to send and receive payments, and for staking and paying transaction fees on the Cardano network. ADA is used to pay transaction fees for using the platform and is given (or stakes) to validators who want to help maintain the security and stability of the network as a reward. There are also NFT (non-fungible tokens) within the Cardano ecosystem. ADA can be purchased on cryptocurrency exchanges such as Banxe and stored on wallets. As usual, it’s essential to do your research when adding investments to your cryptocurrency portfolio.
