Cardano ADA vs Hedera Hashgraph HBAR


I am trying to weigh the pros and cons of Hedera Hashgraph versus Cardano ADA in terms of profitability. Upon doing some research, I have found so many people to be against Hedera Hashgraph while others are opposed to Cardano. My primary question is which coin has more potential to make a profit?

    A lot of people say that Hedera Hashgraph is undervalued, therefore, it has a lot of room to grow. I don’t know if HBAR is undervalued but it is definitely under reported whereas Cardano is severely overvalued or heavily hyped.

    The market is in a slump right now, possibly entering a bear market. With so many people invested in Cardano, it has a lot to lose before hitting bottom. In contrast, Hederah Hashgraph was never promoted intensively so it’s already near a bottom price.

    Powerful YouTube influencers made some ridiculous claims such as how Cardano would hit $5,000 per coin or it would be the next coin listed on PayPal. Some say that those powerful YouTubers were paid to shill Cardano (yes that really happens in the crypto sphere). So in my opinion, Cardano is more of a scam coin or shitcoin than substance. Late Cardano investors will come to realize this when ADA goes down to $0.30 in a bear market.

    On the other hand, Hedera Hashgraph has real substance to it. You know that Hedera is gonna do what it says it’s gonna do. They have stayed true to their word. The way I see it is you have outstanding reputation and technology (Hedera) vs outstanding marketing (Cardano).

    At this point I’d rather put my money on Hedera. When all the Cardano victims lose their money to the ADA scam that never seems to deliver anything more than a wild fantasy, people will see Hedera for what it truly is…a real investment.

    You can’t compare HBAR vs ADA. Cardano is a scam coin. Too many YouTubers and whales overhyped the crypto to make themselves rich. The smart ADA investors already dumped it. The YouTubers continue to tell people it’s best cryptocurrency to ever exist so they can preserve its popularity and thus earn ad revenue.

    HBAR is the better of the two but other coins exist too! Bitcoin, ETH, LINK, DOT are all good long-term investments.


    The difference between HBAR vs ADA is large enterprises (and small) are already adopting Hedera. Just look at their governing council. It is only half filled and it’s already comprised of companies like Google, IBM, LG, Standard Bank, Boeing, Avery Dennison, Chainlink etc. Word has it many other major enterprises are working with Hedera behind the scenes.

    In contrast, Cardano might have potential but it has accomplished nothing—at least that’s what a major crypto YouTube influencer said when appearing on Bitboy’s channel. I am pretty sure that guy inadvertently ended his YouTube career when he said that. But hey, we need more honesty like that.

    By the way, there’s been a lot of false hype about ADA as being the next coin to be listed on PayPal or it being one of the main payment methods that Amazon will adopt. Someone really needs to create a list of all the BS statements shills have said about Cardano. The list would be 10 miles long and none of it has ever come true.

    That said Cardano’s marketing was amazingly influential so much so that it achieved a 70 billion market cap. But eventually people are gonna see through that BS or the government will start going after shills and pump-and-dump schemes. If Cardano survives on shady marketing techniques, who will be left to shill it when regulations come? Cardano will cease to exist.

    Lastly, Charles Hoskinson said Hedera is “centralized garbage”. The nerve of him to FUD other peoples investments. I think he will come to regret those words. I think Charles should go on YouTube and apologize for that statement.

    So to answer your question HBAR is a far better investment than ADA.


    Those who are ignorant about what blockchain movement is all about, is in this forum. Blockchain is about bringing power to the edges. It means this technology is meant to topple the big corporations who has undermined the financial system and taken over control of the world. And Cardano stands for giving power back to the people. First understand this. Then as far as technology is concerned, it is obvious that the corporates are running after age old patented chain because they want to keep control over the technology and start exploiting people more. Cardano is just getting started. It’s community will grow exponentially and their catalyst fund will give rise to an universe of projects. Just wait. We will see who wins. Opensource vs patented …and TPS is not at all a measure of success. Cardano has hydra coming which will scale upto 100M tps and more …it scales as the number of nodes …good luck with competition …and no matter how many corporates back Hedera, the power of the global masses will unite to win against the corporates.


      I invest in profit not ideology so a patent means nothing. Sure we all want government out of our lives but that ain’t gonna happen so you might as well dump your money into HBAR. Hedera is one of few who are on the side of the SEC and they will determine who gets rich and who gets poor. Cardano’s was funded through an initial coin offering (ICO). Here is quote from

      “While these digital assets and the technology behind them may present a new and efficient means for carrying out financial transactions, they also bring increased risk of fraud and manipulation because the markets for these assets are less regulated than traditional capital markets.”

      Moreover, Charles says ADA is the most decentralized network yet he owns billions of tokens so if every token holder has a stake in the network and therefore entitled to vote on proposals to upgrade and develop the ecosystem then their vote means nothing because Charles is the biggest whale with the biggest voice. So once again it’s rich vs poor and we know how that works.

      Smart people will invest money in Hedera and just let it sit and wait. If you do that you will see a huge return on your investment in the future that will far surpass ADA.
