Cardano is experiencing a successful month
For Cardano, the month is successful: Bittrex launched the cryptocurrency in early September. In addition, the recording of Kraken is a premature birthday present, so to speak. On September 29, 2017, the Cardano platform officially launched.
According to Cardano CEO Charles Hoskinson, some announcements are due to be made that day. Among other things, the Infinito Mobile Wallet is expected to be launched.
Cardano is a blockchain designed for smart contracts, remote apps and sidechains. Coins in their own currency ADA can be mined using a proof-of-stakes algorithm, the consensus mechanism is carried out using the votes of the coin holders.
Qtum takes a similar approach. The platform is optimized for DApps as well as Smart Contracts on the Blockchain. The QTUM coin is also obtained via a proof of stake algorithm, mining has no relevance. Technically, Qtum combines Bitcoin’s architecture with Ethereum’s features.
Kraken is one of the largest crypto exchanges worldwide. Founded in 2011, the platform offers trading in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), DASH, Gnostic (GNO) and Dogecoin (DOGE).
