What Is Cardano (ADA)?

Cardano (ADA) is a smart-contract capable blockchain that aims to offer faster and cheaper transactions compared to Ethereum (ETH). Cardano’s distinction from other blockchains is its two-layer architecture. The network’s functionality is split between the computational layer and the settlement layer. The computational layer is used for smart contract processing and execution, while the settlement layer is reserved for cryptocurrency transfers and storage.
As a proof of stake (PoS) blockchain, Cardano was already widely seen as a more environmentally-friendly “Ethereum Killer” — even when it didn’t yet have smart contracts on its network. The highly anticipated Alonzo hard fork announcement in August 2021 boosted the price of Cardano by a whopping 116% within a month. In September 2021, the Alonzo hard fork officially launched, introducing smart contract capabilities on the chain and introducing a wide deployment of decentralized apps (DApps).
ADA is Cardano’s native crypto coin. It’s used for transaction fee payments on the network, staking, and governance voting. Any ADA holder can cast their vote on a variety of proposals submitted by Cardano’s user community. Vote casting requires a temporary lockup of ADA funds on the network while the voting process is going on. ADA is a deflationary cryptocurrency, with a maximum supply specified at 45 billion.

Why Buy Cardano (ADA)?

ADA was a popular coin among crypto enthusiasts even before Cardano enabled full support for smart contracts. Cardano’s image as the smart contract chain of the future was — and continues to be — the key reason behind the coin’s popularity. Following the introduction of smart contracts and DApps, ADA received a further boost to its market position.
With ADA, you can:
  • Own one of the highest-cap cryptos on the market, regarded by some as a true HODL (“hold on for dear life”) coin
  • Use Cardano’s young but rapidly expanding ecosystem of DApps
  • Earn staking rewards on the Cardano network
  • Participate in Cardano’s governance system
