What is Cardano? Should I buy it?

As with any cryptocurrency or asset, we encourage you to do your own research into the project and the coin itself in order to make a decision as to whether or not it suits your portfolio.

"Cardano is a blockchain platform for changemakers, innovators, and visionaries, with the tools and technologies required to create possibility for the many, as well as the few, and bring about positive global change." - Official Cardano website. Unlike other blockchains, Cardano does not require exponentially more energy to increase performance and add blocks.

What is ADA? Is it worth the money?

ADA is a digital currency that is now available on ChainEX. Any ChainEX user such as yourself, located anywhere in the world, can use ADA as a secure exchange of value – without requiring a third party to mediate the exchange. Every transaction is permanently, securely, and transparently recorded on the Cardano blockchain. Every ADA holder also holds a stake in the Cardano network.

As one of a growing number of proof-of-stake blockchains under development in the crypto ecosystem, Cardano and its native cryptocurrency ADA, have gained increased recognition recently. The Cardano project describes its protocol as a “third-generation blockchain” designed to support smart contracts, with potential implementation in supply chain traceability and governance.

The history behind Cardano

The Cardano project, with its aim to build a blockchain based on solid scientific research and best industry practice, appeared in 2015. Its driving force was Charles Hoskinson, one of the Ethereum co-founders and a strong believer in the disruptive powers of cryptocurrencies for the financial system.

In 2017, the project raised more than $60M in an ICO. Cardano is sometimes referred to as the “Japanese Ethereum,” as a significant number of its investors came from Japan, and the company backing Cardano's implementation, EMURGO, is also based there.

As of March 16 2021, Cardano had an open price of $1.03, close price of $1.24, total trading volume of $9,502,962,157 and market cap of $39,710,232,338 (Source: CoinMarketCap)
