Cardano is a technological platform that is capable of running financial applications currently used every day by individuals, organizations and even governments globally. This platform is built in two layers, which gives the system the flexibility for easy maintenance. One layer manages the DA exchanges and the second layer is for the smart contracts. The upgrades are done using soft forks. These separate layers help in managing the transaction of ADA coin and smart contracts separately. This ensures the future of money making possibly fast and the transactions secure and also lets the users operate diverse, smart contracts and applications seamlessly. The layered platform is tamper-proof. And once the information is stored, a contract executed or the transaction is performed, the data are restored in the blockchain ledger permanently.
Cardano’s cryptocurrency is denoted by ADA, which is an advanced, efficient combination of Bitcoin and Ethereum. Bitcoin is a financial based platform, and ethereum is completely based on smart contracts blockchain. Hence, Cardano is a step ahead in organizing and facilitating both the blockchain platforms in a better way. This smart contract-based system is used to control Decentralized Applications also known as DApps.
