Cardano Foundation – in line with its goal of supporting blockchain-related research – is funding a workshop at the Berkman Klein Center of the Harvard University on 5 March 2020. This workshop will investigate how the infrastructure of the web can be redesigned, with the objective of implementing a new, decentralized web that supports open and permissionless innovation. The workshop participants will look at a set of new and evolving building blocks, including blockchain technology, IPFS, and Solid, among others. The benefits and drawbacks of each building block will be assessed, together with the tradeoffs that need to be considered when combining them together. For example, while decentralized systems are more likely to encourage open and permissionless innovation, they also suffer from trust and coordination problems, and are often more difficult to govern and regulate because they lack a centralized intermediary. Thus, in addition to the technical analysis of the various building blocks, the workshop will also investigate new avenues for distributed governance, peer-to-peer moderation, and curation.

Have you seen Charles' recent interview on the "Unqualified Opinions" podcast from Messari: "Building Cardano with IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson"?There are very few people who have created a top 20 cryptocurrency. Charles Hoskinson is one of them. In this conversation, Charles details his cryptocurrency and blockchain path, ultimately leading to the creating of Cardano.Charles also details how he structured Cardano "like a DARPA project" with a deep focus on R&D and why they're concentrating heavily on development in Africa. He lays out his philosophy and strategy for building a network that will one day no longer be reliant on its founders and how he views the overall competitive landscape.

Charles Hoskinson Cardano Update - Ouroboros Hydra - 9/3/2020On March 9th 2020, Charles Hoskinson sat down for an update where he discussed key information about Ouroboros Hydra.Brief summary:-The Ouroboros Hydra paper has been published on eprint, this concludes the research schedule of Ouroboros.-Simulations prove that each Hydra head can perform 1000 transactions a second while each stake pool will be able to host a head.-This fits with the extended UTXO model and gives us a natural way to shard the stake space without sharding the ledger itself.-We will now translate the science into code and bring it into the system.-Rob Cohen will act as product manager for Hydra and ensure that monthly updates are given.Read and watch the full video and recap on our forums here:https://forum.cardano.org/t/charles-hoskinson-cardano-update-ouroboros-hydra-9-3-2020/31308(Not a member yet?

In light of the recent Cardano update from Charles Hoskinson about the Ouroboros Hydra paper, and for those who wish to get more information on this, please refer to the following link, where you can download/view the PDF file: https://eprint.iacr.org/2020/299 or get it directly via this message: https://eprint.iacr.org/2020/299.pdfExcerpt from the Hydra paper's introduction: "Abstract: State channels are an attractive layer-two solution for improving the throughput and latency of blockchains. They offer optimistic fast offchain settlement of payments and rapid offchain evolution of smart contracts between multiple parties without imposing any additional assumptions beyond those of the underlying blockchain. In the case of disputes, or if a party fails to respond, cryptographic evidence collected in the offchain channel is used to settle the last confirmed state onchain, such that in-progress contracts can be continued under mainchain consensus. A serious disadvantage present in current layer-two state channel protocols is that existing layer-one smart contract infrastructure and contract code cannot be reused offchain without change. In this paper, we introduce Hydra, an isomorphic multi-party state channel. Hydra simplifies offchain protocol and contract development by directly adopting the layer-one smart contract system. We present the onchain contracts to open and close Hydra heads (our isomorphic state channels) and a novel offchain protocol for fast evolution of heads. We establish strong security properties for the protocol, and we present and evaluate extensive simulation results that demonstrate that Hydra approaches the physical limits of the network in terms of transaction confirmation time and throughput while keeping storage requirements at the lowest possible."
