Cardano defines itself as a third-generation blockchain and sets a goal to solve the problems that its predecessors could not. It is the first blockchain project that is based on scientific philosophy. Cardano was designed and built by a global team made up of prominent academics and engineers from the blockchain community.

In Cardano’s case, three organizations are in charge of its development. The first one is the Cardano Foundation, an independent Swiss-based body with primary responsibility for supporting the community while mediating with regulatory authorities. Another company that works for Cardano is IOHK, leading cryptocurrency research, and development company…

Uniswap (UNI) is a token and a means of governance on an Ethereum-based decentralized exchange that allows anyone to trade their ERC-20 tokens.

The time-tested method of using celebrity promotions has not gone unnoticed by advertisers and PR specialists from the booming cryptocurrency industry, as recent years saw multiple high-profile athletes, entertainers, and actors being recruited by various crypto-companies to hype up their products and services. Yet, regardless of how appealing and sincere endorsements from celebrity idols may look like, it is worth reminding all aspiring crypto-investors to exercise caution, as stars do not always have the best interests of their fans in mind, whether they’re promoting a hair gel or an ICO.

It appeared in 2011 as one of the first alternative currencies created, after Namecoin, Fairbrix, and Tenebrix.

What Is Binance Coin?

Many modern cryptocurrencies were born out of great technical or philosophical debates within the crypto community, or with the idea to pursue a big goal, but this was not the case with Binance Coin (or BNB). Binance created its own cryptocurrency with the intention of promoting its projects while providing benefits to BNB holders. Binance Coin was not born with its own Blockchain, but as an ERC-20 token, inserted within the Ethereum chain. The Shanghai-based company, founded by Changpeng Zhao in August 2017, generated an initial offer of 200 million BNB, which has been further reduced due to the cryptocurrency’s…
