Product Objective

ETC Group Physical Cardano (RDAN) is an exchange traded cryptocurrency (ETC) that tracks the price of Cardano’s native platform token ADA. Cardano is a blockchain built on a proof-of-stake consensus protocol that validates transactions without high energy costs. Each unit of Cardano ETC is 100% physically backed by Cardano’s cryptocurrency ADA, and trades on European exchanges, providing investors with a safer and liquid way to gain exposure to ADA. Each unit of RDAN gives the holder a claim on a predefined amount of ADA. RDAN is issued by ETC Group and marketed and distributed by HANetf.
