If you found our site, there is a good chance you’re asking yourself “What is Cardano?”.
Simply, Cardano is a proof-of-stake blockchain platform: the first to be founded on peer-reviewed research and developed through evidence-based methods. It combines pioneering technologies to provide unparalleled security and sustainability to decentralized applications, systems, and societies.
Cardano is built by a decentralized community of scientists, engineers, and thought leaders united in a common purpose: to create a technology platform that will ignite the positive change the world needs. We believe the future should not be defined by the past, and that more is possible – and, through technology, can be made possible for all. We measure the worth of a task not by its challenge, but by its results.
Cardano began with a vision of a world without intermediaries, in which power is not controlled by an accountable few, but by the empowered many. In this world, individuals have control over their data and how they interact and transact. Businesses have the opportunity to grow independent of monopolistic and bureaucratic power structures. Societies are able to pursue true democracy: self-governing, fair, and accountable. It is a world made possible by Cardano.
Technology realized through evidence-based science
Cardano is a blockchain platform built on the groundbreaking Ouroboros proof-of-stake consensus protocol, and developed using the Haskell programming language: a functional programming language that enables Cardano to pursue evidence-based development, for unparalleled security and stability.
Imagine better. Think bigger. Create change
Cardano powers new, more secure, and globally scalable solutions. Its technology is continuously improved upon through evidence-based development methods, and guided by a democratic voting system, in which every member has a voice. The opportunity of Cardano is adaptable to your use case. It is an opportunity that creates other opportunities, continuously.
If you are interested in finding out more about the eras Cardano where each milestones are outlined, we recommend becoming familiar with the Cardano Roadmap. The Cardano roadmap is a summary of Cardano development, which has been organized into five eras: Byron, Shelley, Goguen, Basho, and Voltaire. Each era is centered around a set of functionalities that will be delivered across multiple code releases. While the eras of Cardano will be delivered sequentially, the work for each era happens in parallel, with research, prototyping, and development often in progress all at once across the different development streams.
The text above was cited from Cardano.org and is only a fraction of the information available. We highly recommend spending some time reading more about Cardano and fully understanding what it means to believe in and be part of their mission. This would then give you a better understanding of why we are using this platform to support the Autism community. We are excited to begin this adventure and look forward to all the friends we help and meet along the way. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to us using any method available.
We’re Cardano, and if you’ll permit us, we would like to change the world.Charles Hoskinson
