The future of any cryptocurrency is as uncertain and subjected to change as is its price on the current market. However, this is not good enough for investors, since they need to be able to estimate whether or not the coin is worthy of investing.
Cardano (ADA) is one of the coins that has received a lot of attention this year. It made a lot of progress despite the constantly bearish 2018. Of course, its price is still pretty low compared to other crypto world champions. However, it probably won’t remain so low forever. So, what is there in the future of Cardano?
A bit about Cardano (ADA)
Similarly to Ethereum, Cardano is a platform that specializes in decentralized apps and smart contracts. Its native crypto is ADA, a coin valued at $0.077132, according to CoinMarketCap, which is currently holding the 9th place on CMC’s list.
Despite the fact that it is trying to do the same, or at the very least similar, thing as Ethereum, the two differ quite a bit, upon closer inspection. Cardano is a much younger coin, with its technology being massively improved. Cardano, like many other coins, aims to be the leader of the third generation of the blockchain.
The coin was developed by Charles Hoskinson, who came up with a concept for ADA back in 2015. However, the coin was only launched in 2017. In the meantime, Hoskinson dedicated himself to creating a professional team, perfecting the coin’s concept and technology, and alike. Cardano’s way was always slower, but that was fine, as long as the coin did what it aimed to do properly.
The future of Cardano
Cardano is a coin with a lot of goals, some of which may seem a bit too ambitious at first glance. It aims to unite everyone under one blockchain, and even make it the first $1 trillion economy, according to Hoskinson’s statement a few months back.
Additionally, Cardano’s leaders have been intrigued by how bad the situation in Africa is. Their goal is to use the blockchain technology and help African countries become more organized, cheaper, and more stable than current systems. While these plans were explored in depth back in February, Cardano Foundation’s Twitter page has recently reminded the community of these plans.

This, of course, means that ADA is not scraping their goal to help developing countries in Africa. Only that doing so will require a lot of time, effort, and patience. However, if successful, this will make the future of Cardano quite bright in Africa. Not a lot of coins is planning on conquering African crypto market, and certainly not a lot of those that are as capable and well thought-out as Cardano is.
If Cardano manages to establish itself in Africa, this will be a game-changing move, for the coin, as well as the involved countries. Of course, the company’s goal is to help, but the consequences of its expansion cannot be overlooked. In the meanwhile, Cardano continues to struggle in the once again bearish market, like the rest of digital coins.
Despite the current environment, Cardano still remains one of the most balanced coins, with the smallest price oscillations. In the meanwhile, Cardano continues its own development, with constantly bringing up new updates. These updates continue to fix even the smallest issues, making Cardano one of the best coins around.
Finally, according to Hoskinson’s recent video, Cardano’s TestNet 1.4 is also coming soon, with its release being scheduled for October of this year. In the same video, Hoskinson also claims that the team has made a lot of progress with Icarus as well and that they are quite happy with the results.
Obviously, the future of Cardano seems bright enough, even though it might require a lot of work and effort. Cardano continues to develop and advance and has become a pretty safe investment at this point.

Top 3 Cryptos to Serve as an Alternative to Bitcoin
The crypto market continues to struggle on its way of reaching mass adoption, with most people focusing on Bitcoin. However, Bitcoin still has its fair share of problems, a few of which are quite challenging, with no guarantee that they will ever be fully solved.
While Bitcoin is, and has been the largest cryptocurrency from the moment it was created, there is no guarantee that it will remain at the number one spot forever. While this is mostly what skeptics tend to say, it is still a possibility that cannot be ignored. With that in mind, here are top 3 cryptos that might serve as an alternative to Bitcoin in the future, or maybe even now, considering how high its fees are, and how long its waiting periods tend to be.
XRP has become known as a ‘remittance coin’ due to its goal of providing better, faster, and cheaper international transactions. It was created by a company called Ripple Labs, and so far, it has been one of the best ways for sending money cross-border. It works in combination with Ripple’s products such as xRapid, fueling it and allowing for near-instant transactions at low fees.
The company has decided to offer its products to banks around the world, and most of the financial institutions decided to accept the offer. This is their way of trying to…
Why HODLing XRP, BAT, and EOS is a Smart Idea
The crypto market continues to grow, even though the prices of its many coins were severely damaged during the so-called ‘crypto winter’ of 2018. Even so, the market has grown a lot, and it currently features over 2,100 digital currencies, all parts of their own projects, with a goal of making an impact and entering the mainstream.
Of course, it goes without saying that not a lot of these coins have real potential. Many of them came to be during the ICO craze of 2017 and early 2018 when investors were willing to buy just about any coin. As a result, new startups emerged, each offering its own cryptocurrency. Most of these coins are believed to be bad projects with no future, with only a matter of time before they are declared ‘dead.’
Let’s start with XRP. This is a coin created by a company called Ripple Labs. As a result, the coin has a strong connection to the company, which many have taken as proof that it is not a real cryptocurrency, that it is centralized, and that it will eventually fade away as a bad project.…
Why XRP is Worth Much Less than What Fans Expect
The crypto world is currently facing an uncertain situation as a result of XRP value. Many fans of the digital currency are arguing that the worth should be higher than what it now. A poll taken by Twitter this year showed that 80% of the participants want XRP to be higher than Ethereum. The participant preferred the digital currency to occupy the second largest position against what experts thought. Since XRP has not offered much to improve its reputation, the participant’s reaction was surprising indeed.
From what we have seen so far, one question to ask is, why does the cryptocurrency have many supporters? The simple answer is that Ripple focuses on offering remittance services to its fans more than other digital currency. The company offers many products of which one known as xRapid a cross-border payment service impress many supporters.
Why Fans expect an increase in value
Weiss Ratings did not hide the fact that their agency is not supporting Ripple. However, they admitted that the global payment platforms which the cryptocurrency created are commendable. This commendation proves that Ripple has been impactful in that area of blockchain tech application. Also, the players in the community have seen these achievements as well. Therefore, it is not a surprise that they expect an improvement in the market cap and price of XRP
