Are you thinking about investing in cryptocurrencies and, particularly, in Cardano (ADA)? Before setting out on this adventure, let us answer one important question: how can you buy Cardano?

Use an intermediary to buy ADA

Cardano (ADA) is a cryptocurrency, a digital currency existing on a blockchain – a type of secure network. To buy ADA, you will need to go through an intermediary, that is an operator that acts as a broker or trading platform.

Coinhouse is a cryptocurrency operator that can facilitate the secure purchase of ADA or any digital currency. It is one of the safest options and is registered with the French Financial Markets Regulator. It is also one of the easiest-to-use platforms for newcomers to the world of cryptocurrency investing.

How to buy Cardano

To answer how you can buy Cardano, there are two steps to take. Firstly, open an account on an operator’s platform. Next, go through the purchasing process to buy ADA.

No matter the operator, you will have to open an account with them before you can buy Cardano (ADA). This obligatory step allows the intermediary to check your identity, which will also act as protection against anyone trying to hack your account. Essentially, no one will be able to impersonate you and invest in cryptocurrency without your knowledge. Opening a Coinhouse account only takes a few minutes.

The remaining part is how you can actually buy Cardano. Coinhouse is different from other operators through its reliance on simple, intuitive payment methods. On our platform, you can buy ADA using a credit or debit card or by making a bank transfer (€20 minimum). These methods let you buy digital currencies when you want and without obligation, unlike with a subscription system (reserved for regular investors) that requires fixed periodic payments in addition to normal transaction fees.

What can you do with Cardano when you have bought some?

The purchase of ADA is most suitable for those who have long-term goals. Investors can hold their currency (on the Coinhouse platform or in a personal wallet) and track the price changes, just as you would with company shares on a stock exchange. You can also trade Cardano, swapping it for other cryptocurrencies. This is a great way to diversify your crypto portfolio but it does require a well-developed strategy.

And of course, there are other options. You can buy Cardano with the aim of selling it for a profit when the price of ADA rises or you can transfer your coins to other accounts.

You can also buy products or services from businesses that accept cryptocurrency payment. These payments are often done online using a special crypto debit card. More and more businesses are accepting crypto, you just need to look the information up online or ask your favourite brands if they take Cardano.

Our services make a difference.

Why buy Cardano?

There are a huge number of cryptocurrencies in which you can invest, and the list is only getting longer. In this case, why should you buy Cardano (ADA) and not a different cryptocurrency? What advantages does this coin have over others? Before all that, we should explain what Cardano is and what its features are.

What is Cardano?

Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency and launched in 2009. Since then, many other digital currencies have been created, usually to improve the security of exchanges on the blockchain and the processing speed for transactions. Cardano (ADA) is part of this ecosystem. This digital currency was created by the co-founder of Ethereum (another cryptocurrency), Charles Hoskinson, as a rival to Ethereum. The Cardano protocol began being developed in 2015 and was officially launched two years later.

The defining feature of Cardano is that it has an architecture based on a new-generation multi-layered blockchain. This enables the network to be scaled up and allow thousands of transactions to be processed per second. Its blockchain relies on proof-of-stake – a consensus method used to confirm cryptocurrency transactions and make them entirely secure.

You have probably asked yourself why do people talk about buying ADA for Cardano whereas they just say Bitcoin when they talk about buying it. Cardano is the name of the protocol while ADA refers to the native cryptocurrency of the network, named in tribute to Ada Lovelace, a pioneer in computer science. In other words, Cardano is the ecosystem and ADA is the asset you buy.

What benefits are there in buying ADA?

The main feature of ADA is its robustness and security. In fact, it was the first cryptocurrency developed from start to finish by engineers and scientists. As a result, Cardano’s architecture is highly sophisticated, offering investors an innovative, secure framework, all the more since the man behind the project, Charles Hoskinson (a co-creator of Ethereum), has an excellent reputation in the world of digital currencies.

Another important advantage is that transactions on the Cardano blockchain are very quick thanks to its innovative structure (what people call a third-generation blockchain). Let’s make a comparison: on average, Bitcoin processes five transactions per second, Ethereum processes fifteen, whereas Cardano processes… 257! This processing speed will probably increase further with the roll out of a new protocol called Ouroboros Hydra, which will potentially be able to handle one million transactions per second.

Lastly, Cardano is an environmentally friendly cryptocurrency; it consumes far less energy than its main rivals (Bitcoin and Ethereum). The reduced energy usage comes from ADA using a different verification system, i.e., proof-of-stake, which does not require a large number of computers working of validating transactions.

There are many good reasons to buy Cardano!
