Cardano is a decentralized blockchain and cryptocurrency project that is fully open source. Cardano is developing a smart contracts platform that seeks to deliver more advanced features than any protocol previously developed. It is the first blockchain platform to be peer-reviewed by academic researchers and third-party auditing firms. This level of scrutiny of the underlying technology is an industry first.

The protocol features a layered blockchain software stack that is flexible, scalable, and is being developed with the most rigorous academic and commercial software standards in the industry. Cardano will use a democratic governance system that will let the project evolve over time, and fund itself sustainably through a visionary treasury system. In addition, Cardano is unique in that it’s built in Haskell, considered to be one of the most secure programming languages, as it minimises the number of errors and adds extremely robust security to the platform.

Cardano was co-founded by Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood in 2015 via Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), their cryptocurrency development firm launched the same year, that now acts as the technical team leader in Cardano's development.
