What is Cardano?
Cardano is a public blockchain platform that produces its own cryptocurrency (known as ADA, though more commonly simply called Cardano). Launched in Switzerland by the Cardano Foundation, it’s one of many platforms set up as a rival to Ethereum.
How to invest in Cardano
Before you start investing, it’s a good idea to be familiar with all the options available. Below you’ll find a list of methods you can use:
- Crypto brokers. An online broker is usually the best way get started, where you can get Cardano coins quickly and easily. Look for a broker that delivers superior customer service, an intuitive trading platform, and competitive transaction fees.
- Exchanges. Exchanges tend to offer a wider range of coins and more options to swap between them. Just be aware that some might make you use another cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin, to swap for other coins, rather than using fiat currency like GBP or USD. Look for a reputable exchange that executes transactions seamlessly and securely and allows you to trade a variety of different cryptocurrencies.
- Investment trusts. An investment trust is a closed-end investment strategy favoured by UK investors and used to buy different types of investment assets. Some of these funds invest in crypto coins now and you can look around to find one that has exposure to Cardano.
- Debit cards. A crypto debit card is a method of purchase that allows you to make purchases online instantly, using Cardano as the currency that funds the card. Card providers generally only let you use the most popular coins, so you might not be able to find one that lets you spend ADA just yet.
- Mobile apps. There’s a growing number of crypto apps that allow you to invest in various cryptocurrencies, including Cardano. An app offers the convenience of using your mobile phone to invest.
- Crypto wallets. A wallet allows you to store and track your Cardano coins securely. Many crypto wallets have expanded their range of functionality recently so that you can trade from within the wallet itself.
