IOHK | Research; Dr. Peter Gaži, Ouroboros. Catch up presentation @here. IOHK's Research fellow, Dr. Peter Gaži presents a talk on Ouroboros. Filmed on location in Lisbon, Portugal at the IOHK Global Summit 2018. Developing a secure proof of stake algorithm is one of the big challenges in cryptocurrency. The Ouroboros protocol has the distinction of being the first proof of stake algorithm that is provably secure and has been peer reviewed at a leading cryptography conference, Crypto 2017. https://youtu.be/GKqtWpdAdRA

LEDGER WALLET In order for Cardano users to hold their Ada securely offline, we are building support for the Ledger Nano S cryptocurrency hardware wallet. The first stage of this is to build the Cardano application that runs on the Ledger device itself. This stage has now been completed, working with Metalair, a leading blockchain consultancy.

*IOHK | Ouroboros Genesis: A Provably Secure Proof-of-Stake Blockchain Protocol* Ouroboros Genesis - New research for Cardano We’re very proud to announce Ouroboros Genesis, a new paper from the IOHK research team. This latest version of Ouroboros, the algorithm powering Cardano, is a step forward in the cryptography that powers cryptocurrency systems. In this video, filmed at the IOHK blockchain technology lab at the University of Edinburgh, Professor Kiayias explains the research. For the first time, new users joining the blockchain can bootstrap from the genesis block, and do not need a checkpoint block or any prior knowledge of the number of users active in the system. This feature was previously not possible in proof of stake distributed ledgers while it was a hallmark of proof-of-work protocols. This means that Ouroboros can now match the security guarantees of proof-of-work protocols like Bitcoin in a way that was previously thought infeasible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCeK_4o-NCc&feature=youtu.be
This week, we attended #Eurocrypt2018 and we were proud to present our Ouroboros Praos research to this prestigious academic community, and it was also fantastic to meet the Cardano community here in Tel Aviv. @CardanoStiftung @cardanocom #Cardano #Ada https://twitter.com/InputOutputHK/status/992690376040468480 The Ethiopian government is looking to overhaul its coffee supply chain and #Cardano Enterprise is a tool to do that.

It would be so cool to see a clojure backend

idk about that 😬 I'm as big a fun of the Clojure as the next guy, but a cryptocurrency client is not a project I would want to implement without strict types

Hickey himself was talking a lot how strict-typing and explicit code is not a sin and it serves its purpose and totally should be used when it's really needed, it's just that for 98% of programming work he thinks that it's unnecessary 🙂 Well I think a cryptocurrency client falls perfectly in that 2%

This does not require ouroboros as a beacon nor a cryptocurrency

Will be interesting to see their own cryptocurrency implementation with it tho

I am exploring a use case for cryptocurrency research

Happy #AdaLovelaceDay - A day founded to celebrate the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, including Ada Lovelace, who Cardano's cryptocurrency is named after and is known for being the first computer programmer. We encourage everyone to share their favourite female thinkers and scientists who have shaped and changed our world.

Established in 2017, EmurgoHK, a global leader in blockchain technology, is the venture builder for the Cardano blockchain protocol, and its hugely successful native cryptocurrency, the ADA Coin

Ouroboros 🐍 is the fundamental protocol of Cardano which enables the decentralized public blockchain and thus cryptocurrency to function. First and foremost thing to understand about Ouroboros ☝️ is that it's not a single thing, and not a single protocol, and not a single whitepaper. Ouroboros is a family of protocols 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 where each new protocol is like a step in a staircase, based on sound and proven basis of previous members and unquestionable fundament of the very first Ouroboros paper. In our new blogpost and visual presentation you can learn about the process and the timeline of development of different parts of this family: https://edu.clio.one/ouroboros-101/

I’m looking to hire Haskell developers capable of using Plutus for a very exciting Esport platform and cryptocurrency on the Cardano blockchain. Is anyone interested or know anyone that might be?

So, I have read quite a few introductory posts and videos of what Cardano is about.I understand that it is a smart contract protocol that aims to solve what Ethereum can't in terms of scalability, interoperability and sustainability.I particularly like the treasury bit. How the community votes on improvement proposals so that funds raised via ICO using Cardano is more transaparent and responsible.My question is, so can I build a cryptocurrency and launch a token sale using Cardano now?Coz I can't find anybody who has.

So, hello everyone :) I'm developing some stuff and want to integrate Cardano. With Bitcoin, it's pretty simple (just wrap electrum, lol), Ethereum have Infura, which is also pretty useful.I want to find something like that for Cardano. What's better to try right now? Performance is not the issue.At the end it'll be something like that:seed, address, err := cryptocurrency.Cardano.GenWallet()...balance, err := cryptocurrency.Cardano.Balance(seed)...tx, err := cryptocurrency.Cardano.Send(seed, dest, amount)(I have the same API for bitcoin already)

If someone wants to get some ADA (I've put some small amount for testing purposes) and check this thing in reality, this can be a good and helpful start: https://github.com/jollheef/cryptocurrency/issues/6 :)
