The crypto exchange Kraken is breaking down the differences between Ethereum (ETH) and Cardano (ADA).
The exchange notes in a blog post that both competing smart contract platforms provide similar offerings but have “different philosophies.”
Kraken highlights that Cardano emphasizes a “research-driven approach to design,” while Ethereum was built to “be a kind of operating system for any number of custom assets and programs.”
Explains the exchange,
“While Cardano may not promise new ground-breaking features, users and developers may find its cryptocurrency offers appealing optimizations based on scientific research and formal verification, a process by which its code is verified mathematically.”
ETH is trading at $2,437.10 at time of writing, down more than 22% in the past seven days, but up 1.77% in the past 24 hours.
Cardano’s native asset, ADA, is trading at $1.09 at time of writing, down nearly 20% from where it was priced one week ago. The 6th-ranked crypto asset by market cap has gained nearly 4.5% in the past 24 hours.
