Cardano Virtual Summit Special Guest Stephen Wolfram Illuminates on Theoretical Physics and BlockchainSpecial Cardano Virtual Summit guest Stephen Wolfram of Wolfram Research and Wolfram Alpha illuminates the connection between the universe of theoretical physics and the world of blockchain. In a wide ranging presentation Wolfram shows that developing a computational notation for describing the world means that contracts can be described in mathematics. This is vital to connecting the digital to the physical world. Stephen Wolfram then shares his emerging theory of the physical universe.‘When we look forward to ethics in artificial intelligence we need to have a language that we speak to the AI in’‘Physics teaches us that we can have rules that describe how the world works. We can now use programs as a fundamental description of the world.’‘Simple rules mean complex behavior in the computational world.’Watch it here: youtu.be/h94VrSuPFJc

On a side note; Employees from IOHK, Cardano Foundation and EMURGO are actively being impersonated. Every employee/admin/Ambassador sending you a direct message without a reason is a scammer.

Safety warning; there are also Twitter accounts from very well known people in our space being hacked and advertising giveaways. Please remain vigilant and stay safe. If it’s too good to be true it probably is!

Want to see what #ada rewards you could earn when staking arrives on mainnet later this summer? IOHK has released a staking calculator for the #Shelley Testnet, so you can estimate what your rewards could be on mainnet.While you can try out delegation and staking features, there are currently no rewards on the Shelley testnet. ada rewards come with Shelley on the Cardano mainnet. Currently, we estimate rewards of around 4.6% annualized on your staked ada.*Factors like stake pool performance total staking volume will affect the exact % (percentage) rewards you should expect. Here’s the calculator. So you can do the math. Use the sliders to understand how various parameters will affect your rewards: https://testnets.cardano.org/en/shelley/tools/staking-calculator/For a deeper dive, check out our full walkthrough with Dr. Lars Brünjes, one of the core team behind #Cardano incentive design and implementation. He'll take you through the core features and help explain some of the theory.Lars will take you through the full calculator functionality, explaining parameters and options for both ada holders and stake pools, and covering both basic and advanced modes. See here: https://youtu.be/8GiH-FNy-OcExciting times ahead, with staking coming soon. But a final note of caution. Scammers will try to take advantage and catch the unwary. Remember: to earn rewards, you delegate securely from your wallet. You'll NEVER need to send your #ADA anywhere, whatever you may be promised! *Please note that the Shelley Testnet rewards calculator is based on what comes out of the Treasury, and doesn't include any Transaction Fees.
ICYMI: IOHK's custody agreement with Coinbase will allow users to stake ada tokens from Coinbase’s storage, from Q4 this year. Read more about it here: https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/coinbase-custody-support-secure-cardano-140626973.html

Charles Hoskinson Whiteboard Videos - Update on the rest of the year for Cardano(Written by Eric Czuleger)On July 18th 2020 Charles Hoskinson sat down to discuss the road ahead 1 in the near future of Cardano.Looking forwardWe’d like to give some clarity into the future of the Cardano ecosystem in 2020. Now that we are in July we are going towards the hard fork on the 29th. This is looking quite good unless we see something unexpected. We are now getting Adrestia and Daedalus where they need to be.As we move into August staking will begin, those who worked on the ITN and worked on the pioneer network who helped us to move over to Haskell code will be turning on their network infrastructure on the 29th of July. That means that between the end of July and August 18th rewards will begin flowing.Read and watch it in full on our forum here:https://forum.cardano.org/t/charles-hoskinson-whiteboard-videos-update-on-the-rest-of-the-year-for-cardano/36058
