The past year was a time of growth for the Cardano community as we became more geographically and linguistically diverse, and increased in size and scope.
In 2019, the Cardano Foundation’s in-house team expanded as well: from less than half a dozen to more than 20 people across 16 locations in 12 countries (, , , , , , , , , , , ).
As both the community and the Foundation’s in-house talent grew, so did our involvement in various events and activities in our effort to contribute to the blockchain industry and foster the adoption of Cardano.
We celebrated Cardano’s second anniversary in Bulgaria in 2019, with “embracing the community” being the main theme of the festivities. The Foundation helped youth to gain skills for the future and to lift them out of poverty by supporting academic, research and educational initiatives, such as WyoHackathon 2019 in Wyoming. The Cardano Foundation also financed Seiza (Cardano blockchain explorer) and Tangata Manu (open source codebase library).
Equipped with the achievements and lessons of 2019, the Cardano Foundation’s team will focus on taking more responsibilities for Cardano. Ahead of a very busy 2020, here are some of the highlights of the past year.
