If all assets have a policyId and an assetName, what is the policyId and assetName of ADA? I'm assuming the assetName is ADA, but seeing as how ADA is the principal asset of Cardano, what is the policyId?

In case of ADA:

  • policyId (adaSymbol) is an emptyByteString = ""
  • assetName (adaToken) is an emptyByteString = ""
