3rdgen blockchain

Cardano (ADA) is a decentralized platform that will allow complex programmable transfers of value in a secure and scalable fashion. Development started in 2015, and it then raised around $60 million in an ICO in 2017 before its release. It is developing a smart contract platform which seeks to deliver more advanced features than any protocol previously developed. The development team consists of a large global collective of expert engineers and researchers. It also plans to use a democratic governance system that allows the project to evolve over time, and fund itself sustainably through a treasury system.

The larger a community is then the more eyes are on that project. Sharing information, red flags and concerns is more likely the bigger the community is. And larger communities are alot hard to censor and control - therefore they provide a diverse range of opinions.

Cardano Volume Score

The volume score is the simplest of all our metrics and quite often the bottom line metric. It doesnt matter how well a project scores on the other factors, if it is only shifting a few thousand dollars a day in volume then there is a high chance you will left holding a bag

  • very high USD 24hr volume

Red flags come in all shapes and sizes

At the end of the day a cryptocurrency project requires you to part with your hard earned cash in order for it to become succesful.

You expect a level of transparency and professionalism from a project that is asking for your money.

  • 404 (missing) websites
  • Expired SSL certs
  • Malware/Hijacked sites
  • Suspended Twitter accounts
  • Private Subreddits
  • SEC investiations

If you spot anything suspicious/resolved then please let us know.

Backed by universities, so development is legitimate. It is definitely a long-term hodl to see what happens in it's dapps addition update. It is up quite a bit right now so maybe hold off until it's a bit cheaper so as not to go in at an all time high

Nur Hype, bzw. FOMO! Kann mir nicht vorstellen das dieses Netzwerk jemals gut skalieren kann... Selbst jetzt schon, bei so gut wie kaum Transaktionen, ist das Netzwerk nicht in der Lage die Böcke halbwegs regelmĂ€ĂŸig zu erzeugen. Teileweise wird 2 Minuten kein Block erzeugt. UnfĂ€hig! Wahrscheinlich langfristig Scam!

Charles Hoskinson is a confidence scammer. Every aspect of the project has been delivered late and is underwhelming. He blames everyone else for things being late and sells dummies the idea that poor project management is a feature of how thorough and great they are. So stupid.

Great project, but its current huge downside is the huge amounts of ADA coin allocated to founders. Unlike Bitcoin, it seems the founders and management of the Cardano system themselves have a huge portion of the total supply.
