What is Cardano?

Cardano is an open-source blockchain technology project built from first principles and a scientific research methodology where systems, concepts and protocols are peer-reviewed by the brightest minds in academia. Cardano is a smart contract platform built for the global financial system. Cardano’s smart contract platform will enable the safety and security which financial smart contracts desperately need for mass adoption. Cardano is also aiming to solve supply chain tracing issues and tracking unique items to make sure they are not fraudulent. Cardano’s native digital currency, ADA, has an ambitious goal of becoming a global financial system on the blockchain platform.

To achieve their open-source vision, Cardano (ADA) has 5 distinct ‘eras’ of updates. These are Byron, Shelley, Goguen, Basho, Voltaire. Each era of Cardano is named after famous people in history. For example, Cardano is named after Geralamo Cardano, a famous Italian polymath.

Cardano has a unique team of people working on it and founded by two of the founders of Ethereum, Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood. The three companies handling the Cardano project are the Cardano Foundation, Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) and Emurgo. IOHK is the main company responsible for the engineering and development of Cardano. Emurgo is a Japanese company responsible for developing business relationships to drive the use of Cardano. And the Cardano Foundation’s role is to drive the adoption of Cardano among everyday users.
