Cardano is a hybrid cryptocurrency, an advanced and efficient combination of Bitcoin and Ethereum. Bitcoin blockchain is based on finance and revenue, and Ethereum is smart contracts based on blockchain technology. Cardano facilitates both the platforms and uses the best of both.

It is also the first peer-to-peer transaction system based on scientifically tested theories.
