What is Cardano?

Proof-of-stake
Smart contracts
Research-driven

Cardano (ADA) is a proof-of-stake blockchain built for smart contracts. It's an open-source protocol that is based on rigorous peer-reviewed academic research and developed through evidence-based methods.\

The network's native token is used to pay for smart contract operations and is called ADA, named after the 19th-century mathematician, Ada Lovelace. Cardano was founded by Charles Hoskinson, a mathematician and programmer who was also a co-founder of Ethereum.\

Its long-term vision is to empower those who need it most with a more inclusive, secure, scientific-based technology standard. Moreover, Cardano is aiming to be the most environmentally sustainable blockchain platform.

First there was Bitcoin - which is a blockchain based financial system. Then along came Ethereum - which is a blockchain based Smart Contracts system. Now picture a system that could do both, in a more efficient way - that’s Cardano.\ The concept of Cardano is to create a blockchain that can perform much better than older blockchains like Ethereum, meaning that it can process more transactions, cheaper transactions, and faster transactions. Cardano is a decentralised, blockchain based system, powered by the ADA coin - the cryptocurrency which runs on the Cardano platform and is the unit you’ll have when you decide to invest or buy Cardano. Cardano claims to be the first cryptocurrency which runs on a scientific peer review, which ensures its safety, with its ADA cryptocurrency offering cheap and quick transactions.\ Cardano’s transactional processes work on the basis of Smart Contracts. These Smart Contracts are, however, more secure than that of other cryptocurrencies, as they are layered and allow very less tampering with the data once entered. Since they are based on blockchain technology, the systems will be decentralised, and not reside with restricted individuals. Once the information is stored, contract executed, or transaction performed, it will be stored permanently in the ledger.
