TL;DR: Cardano is third-generation blockchain, and it will change the world
Being the first proof-of-stake blockchain platform to be created, Cardano is based on peer-review research and has been developed using evidence-based methods. It combines pioneering technologies to provide unparalleled security and sustainability to decentralised applications, systems, and societies. Together, Cardano and its team of top-notch engineers seek to enable positive progress and change by redistributing the power that’s currently in the hands of unaccountable structures to the masses.
The platform is named after Gerolamo Cardano — an outstanding Italian mathematician, engineer, philosopher, doctor and astrologist of the XVI century. It was created by the company IOHK: Input Output Hong Kong (currently known as Input Output Global). A key figure is Charles Hoskinson, its CEO.
