Welcome to Cardano!

Cardano is a highly protected blockchain composed in Haskell. It allows formal confirmation of code, and simple extensibility through a layered architecture. Cardano’s technology is built from peer-reviewed research at a few of the world’s foremost universities.After more than two years of preparation and advancement, we’re thrilled to announce that the Cardano blockchain was publicly introduced on the 29th September 2017. Cardano’s Ada token was then offered for trading on the first October at Bittrex exchange.On this subreddit you can discover more about the project, understand its terrific potential and take part in the worldwide Cardano community! Getting going What is Cardano?Cardano is a security focused blockchain that harnesses the most recent research study and engineering

insights to build

a platform suitable for the highest value applications.Built on a structure of peer-reviewed research developed through collaborations with the world’s primary universities, Cardano aims to develop a platform for decentralised applications and clever agreements that can be processed with a method called formal verification.This allows rational proof of the correctness of code and smart agreements, for those applications where value is high and security is critical. Cardano combines this with an innovative layered

method that separates accounting of worth from all other clever contract and computation activity.This indicates functionality can be added to smart agreement abilities without changing the procedure responsible for the cryptocurrency.The Group Cardano is made up of 3 business who each have unique functions in the job. Cardano Foundation: A Swiss non-profit and guardian of the Cardano community and community. It intends to proactively deal with federal governments and regulatory bodies, as well as forming tactical collaborations with business and other open-source jobs to further worldwide adoption of the technology.IOHK: A world-class engineering and technology company committed to utilizing peer-to-peer developments to provide monetary services to three billion individuals that don’t have them. The group is contracted to create, build, and maintain the Cardano platform up until 2020. Emurgo: a business formed to incorporate, develop and support companies who want to utilise Cardano’s decentralised blockchain.What is special about the project?Cardano is the first blockchain project to be built on peer examined scholastic research.This level of examination of the underlying technology is an industry initially. Even more to this, Cardano is unique in that it’s written in the Haskell coding language.Haskell is thought about to be one of the most safe and secure programs languages, reducing

the variety of mistakes and including very robust security to the platform. This consists of usage of a technique called formal confirmation, which enables mathematical proof of the accuracy of code.Cardano is also designed to run in controlled industries whilst securing private personal privacy

. Applications built on Cardano can be individually customised to meet regulator requirements, but individuals can protect their privacy by choosing whether they want to go into regulated domains.How can I get Ada?Right now the only exchange that Cardano has partnered with is Bittrex.com. More exchange collaborations will be revealed in the coming weeks and months. Bittrex presently just offers a Bitcoin to Ada trading pair, but others will be added quickly. You can register to Bittrex here.How do I send/receive Ada?You’ll want to begin by getting a wallet. Cardano’s development partner IOHK has developed the Daedalus wallet, allowing users to securely store their Ada. It will eventually support many different cryptocurrencies. Key Documents & Job resources Secret Resources Cardano Center: The main site for all Cardano, from here all information

and resources.The Block Explorer

: Search addresses, deals, dates & slots on the Cardano network.The Daedalus Wallet: The open source cryptocurrency wallet for Ada, built to grow with the community.The Whitepapers Cardano has a really strong academic heritage and is the first cryptocurrency to have among its scholastic documents accepted at Crypto 2017, the leading cryptography

conference. IOHK have research study centres or collaborations with a number of the leading international scholastic institutions including the University of Edinburgh and the Tokyo Institute of Technology.On the Cardano Hub site, there are two areas within the Whitepapers tab: Viewpoint: Confusingly most cryptocurrency

projects call this their whitepaper, using

the word in a non-academic

sense. Here you can discover where the project has actually originated from, and what its objectives are.

It explains how Cardano welcomes the latest scholastic and engineering insights to construct an extremely protected Haskell blockchain.Academic Documents: This section hosts the peer-reviewed research papers that are behind Cardano’s innovation

, consisting of the very first provably safe PoS protocol Ouroboros.Monetary Policy Overall Max Supply: 45,000,000,000 ADA Overall Ada distributed in Pre-Sale: 25,927,070,538 ADA A quantity equal to 20%of Ada coupons sold during the Sale duration, or 5,185,414,107 Ada vouchers were created and dispersed to three entities of the Cardano community that become part of the Technical and Organization Advancement swimming pool: IOHK, Emurgo and Cardano Foundation.Together with the Ada sold, this brings the supply of allocated tokens to 31,112,483,745 ADA.More details can be checked out in the Cardano financial policy document.The Code & Technical Documentation The entire Cardano blockchain is totally open source software and is offered to see on Github. There is also substantial technical documentation produced by IOHK which can be viewed here.The Roadmap The Cardano roadmap is due to be released imminently and will be published here.Pre-Sale The pre-launch token sale of Ada ran from September 2015 to January 2017 was carried out over 4 various tranches. During the sale the average cost paid for 1 Ada was$0.0024 USD and 94.8% of Ada voucher holders who

took part in the sale are Japanese. The audit report summary carried out

  • by Cardano Foundation is available here, and the genesis block distribution may be seen here.Mining and Staking We are presently in the bootstrap period throughout which IOHK and Cardano Structure trusted nodes are presently running the network. We will then move into the benefit period for which details will be released very soon and updated here.Press There have actually been a variety of short articles released about Cardano. You can check out Cardano on Nasdaq, Forbes, or Bitcoin magazine among others. Other Stuff Rules & Small amounts We make every effort to preserve a friendly, useful and delighted atmosphere here.
