Listing on Global Top 10 Exchanges

Cardano (ADA) was listed on Huobi on April 2018, followed by a few other other exchanges such as Bithumb on June 2018 and OKEx on July 2018.

Having already been listed on Binance in 2017, ADA is now listed on almost all of the major exchanges! We are continuously undergoing the specific procedures and working closely with the right partners to get ADA listed on more exchanges and in more countries!

EMURGO Indonesia Joint Venture in Cooperation with Hero group

Together with a major Indonesian SCM (Supply Chain Management) organization, Hero Group, we also launched the joint venture of EMURGO Indonesia. We believe that the partnership can bring a revolutionary enterprise solution into Indonesia through various applications of Cardano’s blockchain technology. SCM is an area where the value of traceability is extremely important; an industry in which the goods need to be tracked from production to manufacturing, and all the way up to the final point of sale. Cardano’s third generation blockchain can provide tangible value-add to this industry, and we look very much forward to seeing the first results of our partnership, EMURGO Indonesia!
