What is Cardano?

Cardano (ADA) is a decentralised open source public blockchain functioning as a smart contract platform. It was developed based on scientific studies and peer reviewed academic research. Cardano is what many consider to be the first example of a third generation blockchain. It was created by blockchain development firm Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) and led by Charles Hoskinson, former co-founder of Ethereum. Daedalus is the wallet for Ada tokens. Coins are mined and decisions are made via a proof-of-stake (POS) algorithm called Ouroboros instead of a proof-of-work (POW) algorithm. The Ada cryptocurrency operates on its own blockchain called the Cardano Settlement Layer (CSL). Read more about Cardano in our cryptocurrency guides.
