Cardano... A resilient, scalable foundation designed for building decentralized applications of the future

Explore the network

Cardano is a decentralized proof-of-stake blockchain platform developed by IOHK on behalf of the Cardano Foundation, and home to the ada cryptocurrency

At Cardano's heart is the groundbreaking Ouroboros consensus algorithm, created by IOHK's own academics and subject to constant improvement through new cryptography research. Using an unprecedented combination of functional programming, peer-reviewed research, and high-assurance formal methods development, the Cardano network is designed to be a resilient, scalable foundation upon which to build the decentralized applications of the future.
