  • Are you planning to bring any new cool features for Cardano platform in 2020, which haven’t been originally planned and announced?
  • Will there be a collection of proven to be secure Smart Contracts which one can select out of a library and modify?If yes, how will such a library be realized, curated and kept secure?
  • What is the potential of BC technology/cardano to support solutions for the most challenging issues of human being?
  • How big of a threat is the increasing number of blockchain patents, filed by huge corporations like Bank of America, to the development of Cardano?
  • How does IOHK and everyone else working on the Cardano project plan to combat the voting cartels we’ve seen in other blockchain systems such as Lisk and EOS?
  • How difficult has it been for the developers and the broader team at Cardano to stay focused on delivering a quality outcome, whilst most other crypto projects are centred around hype rather than quality/actual use case?
  • Charles, where are you most proud of what you achieved with cardano (so far)? And why?
  • What was the Cardano team’s top Aha moment during the build and why?
  • In what way the Cardano-infrastructure meets the ‘right to be forgotten’ as regulated in the GDPR?

  1. ¿Está planeando incorporar nuevas características a la plataforma de Cardano en 2020, que no hayan sido originalmente planeadas y anunciadas?

  14. ¿Podría proporcionar una explicación simplificada sobre las posibles aplicaciones de Cardano en el mundo real?


in regards of the cool feature question: i once read about a feature (can’t seem to find the name for this anymore) for a kind of vault.
The vault allowed spending crypto with a predetermined delay.
meaning when a hacker tried to steal money from the vault the delay is triggered/user is notified about the spend action.
If original owner does not recognize this request it has the time to cancel the transaction.
This seems very useful in my opinion, hope this will be a feature one time.

You’re too late to get a question into the AMA, but there’s this:


Hello everyone.

Thank you for voting. We are pleased to see that the questions with the most votes are of a high quality, made possible by you - our Ambassadors and the overall community.

As stated above we will close the poll and move the questions forward for the AMA during the Cardano Anniversary event in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

However, we see that out of the four questions for IOHK there are three questions, which all have eleven percent and have to share place for the third and fourth question. This means that out these questions one has to be dropped.

We are looking forward to the coming days - please share your thoughts, pictures and videos on social media with the hashtags #Cardano2Years and #embracethecommunity.

With kind regards,

IOHK, the Cardano Foundation and EMURGO.
