Every blockchain project has a token of value commonly referred to as a cryptocurrency. 

Ada is the cryptocurrency on the Cardano blockchain. 

With Ada you may send value between friends, pay for a good or service, deposit funds on an exchange, or enter an application. Performing transfers on the settlement layer will require that you already own Ada, or that you acquire Ada through an exchange. It will also be the native token to be used in applications built on Cardano.
