Editor’s Note: For the purpose of this article – coins, tokens, crypto, and cryptocurrencies are the same thing.

This week, we’ve added two more coins to Quidax –  Cardano (ADA) and PolkaDot (DOT) ?. You can now buy them using USDT. 

But first, a quick intro: what are these coins? 

Cardano (ADA)

Cardano helps people to run smart contracts when building apps, games, and other exciting applications. These smart contracts make sure these applications on the blockchain can work smoothly.  ADA is its official cryptocurrency, and it has seen amazing but steady price increases in the past ?.

Polkadot (DOT)

Polkadot is a platform that allows different blockchains to communicate with each other. For example, Bitcoin is exchanged using the Bitcoin Blockchain and Ethereum has its own blockchain. But with Polkadot, you can exchange crypto across both blockchains. 

This allows more people to use apps and games without having to change all their different cryptocurrencies into a single crypto. Another sweet part is that DOT and ADA tend to move up together too!
