Charles Hoskinson, the CEO and founder of Cardano and its other developers had developed the blockchain by keeping both regulation and end-user gain in mind. Cardano is currently in the process of developing a smart contract platform that promises to surpass the previously developed protocol. Cardano proudly claims that its blockchain is the first to develop from a scientific philosophy and a research-first driven approach. As of 15th March 2018, according to coinmarketcap.com, Cardano is at the 6th position.

The Relevance of the Partnership
As a result of this partnership, FINNEY’s cold storage wallet will hold Cardano’s token ADA and the Emurgo team will be working with the SIRIN LABS R&D team such as to incorporate the FINNEY smartphone and SIRIN OS with the Cardano protocol.
The cold storage wallet of FINNEY is being designed to effortlessly interact between coins and tokens that are supported by the wallet. The next step is to create a DApp store and to offer the cryptocurrency and blockchain developers an SDK that will remarkably increase the number of DApps in existence. The partnership has many highlights. It will bring ADA support and features to the DApp store. This means that if the user wants to buy an app from the DApp store, then they can use ADA to purchase it. This is possible because all the transactions will be performed in SRN. The features of the wallet allow for an automatic and seamless exchange of ADA for SRN. The users have to first approve the transaction for the appropriate amount of ADA and only then will the phone conduct the transaction.
The partnership between Cardano and SIRIN LABS will thus bring the blockchain into the hands of every smartphone owner.
