Cardano is a blockchain platform similar to Ethereum.
We know that buying crypto can be hard, so we’ve collected the best ways to buy ADA and listed them here.
Coinmama is the first cryptocurrency exchange in the world to offer the direct buying of Cardano with credit or debit card. Users from nearly any country can use Coinmama to buy ADA.
You’ll have to verify your ID but it only takes a few minutes. Once the purchase is complete the ADA should be in your wallet within a few minutes.
If for some reason Coinmama does not work for you, you can buy bitcoin (BTC) or ETH on Coinbase with your credit card or debit card.
BitPanda is based in Austria and is a crypto brokerage service. You can buy bitcoins with your credit card if you live in Europe for low fees.
Once you have the bitcoins you can use Binance to convert your bitcoins to Cardano coins in about 10 minutes.
Again, if you live in the USA, Europe, Singapore or Australia then you must first buy bitcoins with your bank account using Coinbase or a similar service.
If you live in any other country then you can use our home page to find a Bitcoin exchange in your country that accepts bank transfer. Then once you buy bitcoins you can convert them to ADA within 10 minutes.
Before we move onto other options:
Never store your Cardano coins on an exchange!
Always withdrawal your Cardano coins to an offline and secure crypto wallet like the Ledger Nano S or any other wallet that you control. Ledger does not yet support Cardano although is expected to support it soon.
There is no way to directly purchase Cardano with cash. Not even any ATMs support buying Cardano.
You can use Binance to easily exchange bitcoins for Cardano.
BitPanda allows Europeans to buy Cardano directly with Skrill.
Cardano price passed $1, despite there not being a working product or blockchain. This is somewhat worrisome and Cardano is getting hype with no product.
Cardano, at time of writing, is worth over $0.20.
Cardano’s dev team is lead by Charles Hoskinson. He was originally a developer for Ethereum and then Ethereum Classic. Now he’s working full time on ADA coin. Read this interview to learn more about him.
