The year of 2017 was the year of the crypto-boom. One day, a relatively unknown project was among the Top 10 crypto-currencies: Cardano, with the Ticker ADA. What distinguishes this project from the rest of the 2,000 crypto-currencies?
crypto-currency of the third Generation
Cardano want to be a crypto-currency of the third Generation. Bitcoin would be the first Generation; Ethereum, the second. Cardano distinguishes itself especially by the very scientific approach of the other projects. While many of the Coins are just Forks of Bitcoin or only ERC20-Token on the Ethereum block Chain, brings Cardano actually something New to the discussion. In the project a lot of emphasis is placed on scientific Work. That is, the findings must be reviewed by several parties, and reproduced, before they create their way into the log.
IOHK saw in 2015 in the light of the world. Founded by Charles Hoskinson, and Jeremy Wood, the project's focus on financial services for the whole world. The phrase "Banking the Unbanked", are also often found in Bitcoin, is also available for IOHK as a guide. IOHK is a driving force behind Cardano and the digital Asset "Ada," after Ada Lovelace, the first programmer in the world named.
Dr. Lars Brünjes is the Director of Education for IOHK. His Background is in pure mathematics, which is why he has the scientific approach of Cardano particularly like. In addition, Lars is very familiar with the programming language Haskell, on the Cardano is built. His accumulated Knowledge, he shares with us today in the BTC-ECHO Podcast.
