About the Cardano Foundation's Distributed Futures Research category

Cardano Foundation sponsors the Distributed Futures Research programme to investigate applications of blockchain technology. This research on Smart Ledgers and new technologies will not only help the development of the Cardano protocol but also help shape and influence the wider blockchain industry.

In this forum category, you will find summaries and links to the research papers from this programme.

I’m a graduate researcher and prospective entrepreneur in a field that isn’t directly connected to blockchain development. Are there any resources for someone like me to learn about how to apply blockchain technology to my research? Are there any opportunities to get involved with the Cardano project for researchers like me?
