Cardano is a cryptocurrency project and decentralized blockchain platform. It was developed to offer a more scalable, sustainable, and secure platform for the creation of decentralized apps (DApps) and smart contracts.

Cardano’s design is based on academic research and peer-reviewed studies, and it secures the network by validating transactions using a special proof-of-stake consensus process called Ouroboros.
