Cardano is a smart contract platform, similar to Ethereum, with a focus on security through a layered architecture. It’s the first blockchain project to be created from scientific philosophy and built on peer-reviewed academic research.
The team is building Cardano with both the end-user and regulators in mind. They’re attempting to find a middle ground that balances the need for regulation with the privacy and decentralization principles at the core of blockchain technology.
The platform also uniquely uses Haskell, a programming language with a high degree of fault tolerance. With the relatively unknown future and complexity of blockchain-based systems, it’s important to build flexibility into projects. It’s near impossible to know what a system may have in months or even years, so it’s important to have a robust language like Haskell which allows you to have a certain margin of error.
One of the most important aspects of owning cryptocurrencies is storage. Down below you will find carefully selected wallets. Remember, a hardware wallet is always advised!
Daedalus is a highly secure wallet for the Ada cryptocurrency. Download and install it so you can use it to safely store your Ada. Daedalus will add more cryptocurrencies and be developed over time along with Cardano, to become a universal wallet, blockchain application platform and an app store.
