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. The layered platform is tamper-proof. And once the information is stored, the contract executed or the transaction is performed, the data are restored in the blockchain ledger permanently.
