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.

Cardano is a decentralized blockchain and cryptocurrency project that is fully open source. Cardano is developing a smart contract platform which seeks to deliver more advanced features than any protocol previously developed. It is the first blockchain platform to be peer reviewed by academic researchers. 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. Further to this, Cardano is unique in that it’s built on the Haskell coding language. Haskell is considered to be one of the most secure programming languages, minimizing the number of errors and adding extremely robust security to the platform.

*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.
IOHK | Symphony of Blockchains Launch event
The award winning Symphony of Blockchains is an interactive, visual and auditory exploration of Bitcoin, cryptocurrency and the blockchain.
I couldn’t agree more. Charles and the team he’s put together at IOHK represent a paradigm shift from every other cryptocurrency that exists today. This is 100% the new way. Look at the craze in cryptos trying to start blockchain research labs at major universities like Ethereum. Cardano has done this from the start. The process behind peer-review and formal methods may not bear its fruit right now but down the road when Cardano has amazing security benefits, a sound incentives/staking protocol, plus self governance, we will all be thanking @Iohkcharles.. that’s a fact
New Blog: Meet the Founders of dLab/EMURGO Startup, Catallact, who are building a Blockchain Analytics Engine for the Finance Industry.https://emurgo.io/#/en/blog/dlab-emurgo-startup-catallact-building-a-blockchain-analytics-engine-for-the-finance-industry/newsletterFor Paul and Dan, building the right thing means creating a tool that solves a clear problem: bringing meaning to data. Catallact is using AI and data science to achieve this goal. Public blockchains such as Cardano, generate huge amounts of data based on the flow of cryptocurrency trades. However, there is a lack of tools available to monitor, analyze and visualize this data. This makes it hard to identify certain types of trading behavior, such as trades performed by algorithms rather than by humans. Catallact is building the tools to understand the behaviors behind market flows. Continue reading.
