ADA Cardano 2021: What is Cardano ADA coin? with Layah Heilpern



  1. Best blockchain on the market. It’s really not close IMO. Charles reminds me of a Steve Jobs, Elon musk type guy for crypto. Ethers scalability problems will be the reason for its fall. Hopefully the Russian alien can figure it out.

  2. Some honest and constructive Feedback for Layah:

    1. Please stop tilting your head back, that's a habit you should work on stopping, as we see up your nostril passages, which is not pleasant to be forced to keep looking up your nose.

    2. Please stop opening your eyes wide open every few seconds, it becomes distracting and makes me not want to keep watching the videos where you are the speaker.

    These 2 points may also be the reason why your videos have such a low view count.

    Fix and work on these 2 feedback areas, and you will be an awesome speaker 🙂

    Thank you, love Exodus Wallet and use it.

  3. staking ADA on Exodus is surprisingly good, it is encouraging me to get more. My only feature request would be to include auto claiming and restaking of rewards similar to how AAVE works. But even without this feature I'm impressed, well done guys.
