What is Cardano?
Cardano is an entirely decentralised public blockchain project. Its developing network currently provides a secure exchange of value and will integrate smart contract support amongst various other applications. Every transaction on the network is permanent, secure, and transparently recorded on the Cardano ledger and, in its current operating form, the project itself solves ongoing blockchain industry issues - one being the ability to scale infinitely.
ADA is the native token of the Cardano network. The token can be traded on exchanges like other cryptocurrencies as well as being transferred instantaneously for a minimal fee. Additionally, ADA can be utilised on Cardano’s proof-of-stake (PoS) protocol, as opposed to standardised blockchain Proof-of-Work protocols (PoW). PoS in the network allows token holders to participate in the blockchain validation process by delegating their ADA in a mining pool and receiving a reward for their stake.
This protocol provides initiative with no need for large computational power present in PoW structures, making Cardano's Protocol one of the first of its kind. Future developments will continue to provide ADA holders with opportunities to utilise their tokens for a variety of applications and services.
New Zealand's trusted crypto exchange
As someone who has integrated to over 20 crypto exchanges via their APIs, I can say Independent Reserve has the best API documentation by far.
Their customer support is also excellent which is something most exchanges sadly lack these days.
I organise and host blockchain meetups and conferences and am always hearing very positive things when it comes to Independent Reserve which is why I always recommend them.
They are by far the most trusted exchange in Australia for consumer trading as well as institutional investment, and offer a great 'open order book' unlike most other Australia exchanges.
I find Independent Reserve to be one of the easiest, smoothest cryptocurrency exchanges that I use.
The client onboarding process was simple, it is easy to deposit funds and I particularly like the transparency of market depth and speed of execution.
