The Mission of Cardano
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.
Every ADA holder also holds a stake in the Cardano network. Ada stored in a wallet can be delegated to a stake pool to earn rewards – to participate in the successful running of the network – or pledged to a stake pool to increase the pool’s likelihood of receiving rewards. In time, and will also be usable for a variety of applications and services on the Cardano platform.
Working together, we achieve more for the many.
From the incremental to global, Cardano improves how we interact, transact, and create – and ultimately operate as a global society.
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.
