Why Is It Moving? Cardano was founded by Charles Hoskinson, who is also a co-founder of Ethereum. It is the native token of its namesake proof-of-stake blockchain platform.

The fall in Cardano’s price come after Israeli cryptocurrency exchange eToro announced it would delist Cardano and Tron for its customers in the U.S. by the end of this year.

eToro said that after Dec. 31, users in the U.S. will not be able to open new positions nor receive staking rewards for the two tokens. The cryptocurrency exchange cited regulatory concerns as reasons for the move.

The unexpected move surprised the cryptocurrency community as the token is not known to be involved in regulatory troubles and it was recently listed on Luxembourg-based cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp.

Hoskinson said in response to a tweet that Cardano is still listed on eToro and can be freely traded by non-U.S. customers.
