What Is Cardano Cryptocurrency (ADA)?

Cardano (ADA) is one of the leading contenders in the smart contract wars. While has a and a higher daily trading volume, the Cardano market cap has slowly been growing as it moves back towards a top ten spot.

What sets Cardano apart from other coins is the team’s approach to development. Whereas and have volunteer developers and community run development, Cardano seeks to make the development process scientific.

In practice what that means is that before changes are made to Cardano the code is peer-reviewed by expert programmers and scientists. The hope is that by having industry experts review the code all major bugs can be avoided.

Charles Hoskinson, Cardano’s founder, is very intelligent himself. He in numbers theory and although he didn’t receive his degree he claims that he’ll complete it after he retires.

It will be interesting to see whether staking has an affect on the Cardano price. Since staking requires coins to be locked up those coins are effectively taken out of supply which might lead to a ADA price increase.

In terms of development the Cardano team believes that the best way to create an awesome cryptocurrency, and subsequently increase the Cardano price, is to adopt the best features of other coins. That means taking the best features from , , , etc. And bringing them to Cardano.

Such an approach might prove to boost the ADA/USD exchange rate in the future as Cardano’s price rises. The more features a blockchain has, the better the change that it has of being adopted. It looks like Cardano is already well on its way to reaching that point.
