What is Cardano?

Cardano is an open-source, proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain platform designed for the development of decentralised applications. It is smart contracts platform that aims to improve on the scalability issues that Bitcoin has. Cardano is one of the biggest blockchains platforms to successfully use a proof-of-stake algorithm. ADA is the native token of the Cardano network and is designed to ensure holders of the token can participate in community governance and other operations of the network.

In 2015, the Cardano network was conceived. Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Bitshares and Ethereum, founded the Cardano Project. Cardano’s primary objective is to establish a stable ecosystem of cryptos all over the world. Its goal is to solve the scalability issue and offer an alternative to high transaction charges found on the Ethereum and Bitcoin networks. It is also recognised as the only crypto network undergoing comprehensive peer reviews by experts to ensure that it gives its users the best bang for their buck. Cardano is currently used by agricultural companies for the purpose of tracking fresh produce from the farm to the fork. Other products built on the Cardano blockchain platform allow for educational credentials to be stored in a safe and secure manner.
