Cardano (ADA) is a blockchain platform that validates high-speed transactions with low computing costs, using the proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus protocol. Cardano is one of the biggest cryptocurrencies by market cap, being hailed as the evolution of Ethereum (ETH). The Cardano blockchain is used to host decentralised applications (dApps) and execute smart contracts.
Cardano’s proof-of-stake protocol, named the Ouroboros protocol, aims to offer a greater level of security than existing proof-of-work protocols, while keeping computing costs low. ADA is the native token on the Cardano blockchain, ADA tokens can be used for staking on the Cardano platform to aid in verifying transactions. Anyone who stakes ADA is rewarded with more ADA tokens. The Cardano roadmap plans to use ADA to help facilitate smart contracts and run applications on the Cardano network.
