What is Cardano (ADA)?

Cardano is an open-source blockchain platform that supports smart contracts and decentralized applications. It is based on scientific research principles and its protocols, concepts, and systems are peer-reviewed by leading academics. Its primary focus is to provide the safety and security required for financial smart contracts, with the goal of enabling mass adoption.

Cardano’s native digital currency, ADA, allows holders to make global transactions with merchants connected to the blockchain. The platform aims to solve supply chain tracing issues and prevent fraud by tracking unique items.

Cardano has evolved through different eras of updates, each named after a famous person in history, including Byron, Shelley, Goguen, Basho, and Voltaire. These updates bring new functionalities and features, making the platform more efficient, secure, and scalable.

The project is led by a unique team, including the founders of Ethereum, Charles Hoskinson, and Jeremy Wood. It is managed by three companies, the Cardano Foundation, Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), and Emurgo. IOHK is responsible for the engineering and development of Cardano, Emurgo drives the use of the platform, and the Cardano Foundation aims to drive adoption among everyday users.
