Cardano is a decentralised open-source system that enables advanced programmable transactions of value in an anonymous and secure way. Launched by Jeremy Wood and Charles Hoskinson in 2015, Cardano is a first decentralised platform based on a specific technological philosophy and an experimental approach. The founders used Haskell programming language to create a smart contract based platform which aims to provide better functionality and performance than any other blockchain protocol. The Cardano team includes well-recognized engineers and excellent researchers who work hard to maintain flexible, protected and ascendable blockchain environment. The Cardano protocol takes into account the latest technological and scientific standards in the sector. Moreover, the platform provides for the use of decentralised governance models that will allow project to develop over time.
