Cardano (ADA) could be considered the purest manifestation of the crypto ethos, with the noble vision of illuminating a new era of decentralized applications and financial systems on a global scale.
Following disagreements about the future direction of Ethereum, Charles Hoskinson founded the Cardano blockchain. A Layer One network capable of smart contract development and a level of decentralization that puts its rivals to shame, Cardano embodies the fundamental principles of blockchain technology.
Built on a foundation of peer-reviewed research and high-assurance development, Cardano distinguishes itself from the crowd by offering a research-driven approach to solve some of the most pressing challenges facing cryptocurrencies today: scalability, interoperability, and sustainability.
Boasting architecture designed by some of the brightest minds in cryptography at Input Output Global (IOHK), Cardano was built from the ground-up through academic research and has carved out a unique niche for itself backed by a hearty blend of innovation, rigor, and vision.
What truly sets Cardano apart? Why has it captured the imagination of a global community and is increasingly being adopted by developers, enterprises and national governments alike?
