What is Cardano (ADA) and how to get an instant ADA loan

The Cardano project started in 2015 and is managed by Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of both Ethereum and BitShares. The original concept of this project was to create a blockchain that can outperform older blockchains than Ethereum. By that, meaning it can process a higher percentage of transactions in a more affordable and faster way. Hoskinson calls Cardano a “third gen blockchain” with Bitcoin and Ethereum being first and second-generation respectively.

Much like Ripple and XRP, Cardano and ADA are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Cardano is the name of the blockchain that lets people receive and send funds while ADA is the name of the cryptocurrency coin. Also similar to Ethereum, the Cardano blockchain lets people build smart contracts. Here, two more people can start an automated agreement without the need for a third party.

Before we delve into how to get an ADA loan, let’s first analyze a few pros and cons

Pros and Cons of Cardano (ADA)


  • ADA crypto offers affordable and fast transactions
  • There is no limit to scaling.
  • First blockchain to use multiple layers (computational layer and settlement layer)
  • Cardano’s consensus mechanism is more “green” and sustainable than older blockchains
  • Well respected development team with experience in previously successful projects like BitShares and Ethereum


  • Other blockchains like Ripple are faster (1,000 transactions per second)
  • Some debate that ADA coin is more theoretical and has yet to truly prove its claims.
  • Slight problems with ADA official wallet

All that being said, ADA supporters are extremely loyal and have no interest in selling their coins now. Hence, YouHodler decided we will help with instant crypto loans.
