Cardano 2nd Anniversary AMA Contest

Hola Charles! Algo nuevo con la adopción de Atala en Etiopía y Mongolia?

Saludos desde la República Dominicana.

I’d like to see Ada to be a real currency of all. Would you consider setting up a PayPal like agency or work with bank exchanges for money Ada?

質問です

マイニングには莫大な電力を必要とし、また冷涼な気候がコストダウンにつながるので北欧や広大な土地を持つところに太陽電池をおいているという記事を見ました
それが真実だとすると、発生する電磁波で地磁気などを狂わせて地球のポールシフトに影響がないかと思っています
カルダノエイダは、他の暗号通貨と違う試みとして、こうした電磁波を中和する技術を持つドイツなどの企業と提携協力したり、環境保持につながることを強力にバックアップすることは今後人類のためになり、最上の通貨に変わるシステムとなる上で必要な過程だと私は思っていますが、いかがでしょうか。また51%攻撃という卑劣なものがあります。これを事実上無効にすることは可能でしょうか。私は祈りという人間の想念の力が大切と思っています。この世の全てのものは創造主、神様のものだからです。ということは、全ての人が自他を分け隔てなく、全て神様の子どもとして尊重し、全てのものを神様からいただいたものとして大切にすること、たった一人の中にでもその想い行為が、成し遂げられたら、システムエラーやあらゆる悪に属する想念や行為の影響は受けないと思います。テクノロジーだけではなく、コンピューターシステムもまた万物ですから、皆、想念の影響を受け取るものと私は信じています。いかがでしょうか。

Can you name the plant and featuring characters :wink:

Hello,

What is your strategy to build Cardano brand awareness - introduce Cardano to people in power to adopt the Cardano eco-system?
Where do you see Cardano in 5 years and which major partnerships can we expect in the future?

Thanks and best regards,
M.

[sorry for my English. If you correct smth, I will be glad]
Everything in the universe is interconnected. I’ll approach the question from the other side. Therefore… ADA is a quite popular female name among the Slavs. It is believed that the name predetermines many things in the future. Such features of the name as the summary is: “Ada is always striving for perfection, the average result is perceived as a failure.”
Is it correct to apply this characteristic to the ADA project? Perhaps hear about your personal ambitions when applied to project ADA? Will you accept to be one of the many?

Duncan Coutts made a proposal about metadatas support. Will it be integrated in Shelley ?

What is Cardano doing to help ensure quality projects are developed on the Blockchain, while at the same time allowing for Decentralization (not controlling what’s allowed - unlike Apple’s App Store)?

I ask because in 2017 we saw an influx of “projects” on the Ethereum Blockchain…many of which were junk & served no real purpose (i.e. Crypto Kitties), which only served to show how immature the industry was.

Question to CF: on this occasion, however, it is worth coming back with the question so important for spreading word Cardano as the blockchain notion - when Cardano back on Wikipedia and can CF deal with this topic ?

Hola Charles! Cual es tu visión sobre la bifurcación dura ?

Saludos desde la República Dominicana.

Greetings Cardano Teams & Community, The Scofflaw Pirate here. You may remember it was my 13 yo that built the self-node. I’m about to drop several AMA questions on the forum but would like to mention the following. While my AMA concepts and questions are very USA centric, I 100% applaud the substantial progress with the MOU’s, meet-ups, partnerships etc. Cardano Teams have made outside the good ole USA. I get it, after a 20 year career in Information Technology, I teach my people and teams, the more you do, the more you can do!. With working blockchain use cases around the world, breaking into main street America will be so much easier when the time comes for Cardano. It just so happens, that my current questions are mostly applicable to western economies for now. Hope they help if even if in the smallest of ways. Let’s change the world together… The Scofflaw Pirate.

Venture and Partnership Category: The “Holy Grail” for blockchain functionally according to some experts is very likely eliminating paper stock certificates on Wall Street with STO’s and cross-border remittance. Next inline could very well be a safe, secure, election voting system on the blockchain. I feel this is an inevitable use case for DLT Tech. Who will strike first? Question: Does the Cardano Team see an opportunity to leverage the emerging STO functionally to eventually build an identity management apparatus and partner with an existing Voting machine company?

Venture and Partnership Category: Point of Sale – “Cash register” System – In small businesses, small municipalities and large schools, churches, non-profits, and especially CHARITIES etc. fait cash is shuffled around with very little accounting, traceability, or tracking. I see this every day. Eventually, someone is tempted, millions of $$ go missing and someone ends up in behind bars. Question: Does the Cardano Team see an opportunity to leverage the ADA platform functionally to partner with an existing POS provider to build an easy to setup and use POS System for small entities? Tax revenue and spending could also be tracked traced on this system perhaps…

Venture and Partnership Category: If we, the Cardano Teams & Community, are going to change the world, we cannot wait for all of Wall Street to grasp the inevitable future of cryptocurrency & blockchain. Question: Would Cardano Team ever consider launching a brick and mortar Cardano Financials on Wall Street to manage Cardano based HSA’s, 401K’s & College 529 savings plans? Imagine a 529 plan where options included traditional stocks, Bitcoin & Cardano Staking rewards. (Maybe include other POS like Tezos & Cosmos as well). The Cardano community is the strongest in crypto… but do we have the kahunas to take on the Establishment Bankers and the likes of Jamie D.? Imagine a single NYC Cardano store front with the same panache that the Apple Stores used to have….

Community and Ecosystem Category: The Billionaire – Put Up or Shut-up Challenge. For many years, I’ve watched as these uber wealthy billionaires loudly proclaim that they will leave their wealth to charity. 20 years later, they are still sitting on their billions while the gap between the 1% haves and have nots grows daily. Question: Would the Cardano Community ever consider launching a community challenge portal pairing up poverty-stricken communities and people with philanthropic organizations that could fund an ADA staking rewards account. The initial staking amount would be locked for 10 years in a smart contract and the resulting rewards would go to the recipient communities and individuals and could only be spent on a first home purchase or education with all activity tracked on the Cardano Blockchain. As a community, we could challenge one of these smart billionaires to help us get it up and going and start with Detroit, Alabama or Baltimore. There is growing momentum in the USA to end generational poverty.

Research & Development Category: I just helped my beautiful, strong and talented 1st born daughter apply and enroll in a top American University. This is an incredibly competitive and expensive process. I can promise you, demand exceeds supply exponentially. Question: Would Cardano Team ever consider launching an accredited Charles Hoskinson University. Start small, but imagine what a technology, blockchain and AI focused University would look like in 50 years…. In 1919 Coca Cola was started and an investment of only $400 would now be worth $2.8 million today. Imagine if Coke had started a free for the under privileged research and development University at that time with a small donation of stock… What would that University look like today and more importantly, what would it do for the Brand? If The Cardano protocol realizes the vision that we all have, can you imagine the value of having an Ivy League style sister university 10, 20 years from now with the same Brand focus? Wow!

Community and Ecosystem Category: I saved the best for last – This could be a game changer… There is over $1 Trillion in student load debt in USA alone. Huge national crisis and even bigger opportunity . Question: Would Cardano Team ever consider launching a Cardano Student Loan Payments system – CSLP. Create a simple system/portal where student loan debt could be paid with Cardano staking rewards. As more ADA are purchased and staked over time, eventually the rewards would equal the needed debt service. Once a loan is paid off, the ADA would revert back to the Brower. Can you imagine the headlines this system would generate nationally if people found an effective way to start paying off student loans?

Is there a possibility that a nation such as the US or China could purchase all of the outstanding ADA and thus have a controlling stake in the next global currency?

Wouldn’t it be better to replace elections by other kind of games? Like some kind of “stake-based games” for each user.

Arrow’s theorem states that it is impossible to derive a collective welfare function from individual preferences. That is: elections are inefficient by design. Wouldn’t it be better to replace elections with stake-based games for each user?

Simply put, the arrow theorem leads us to the conclusion that it is impossible to create fair electoral systems.

I studied economics and whenever I see elections I feel a little bothered.

Can you together paint/describe an imaginary world after 2020, the implementation of Voltaire, relative to Cardano?

Hello Charles! Anything new with the adoption of Atala in Ethiopia and Mongolia?

Greetings from the Dominican Republic.

What are the major quid pro quo (trade-offs) of Cardano protocol at the moment ?
Where it was worth sacrificing something to gain in another field ?

The three pillars of Cardano are sustainability, scalability and interoperability. One of the long-term issues that every blockchain faces is its evolution.
The Cadano blockchain will be a new type of digital “macro-molecule” that will face evolutionary mechanisms that may need to be predicted and can lead to new design solutions.
Will the Cardano team look at state-of-the-art research about evolutionary mechanisms and how loops and feedback mechanisms facilitate biological evolution? This might lead to new groundbreaking forward-looking solutions for Cardano, modeled on tried and proven biological principles.

Dear Cardano Community,

Thanks you all so much for signing up and participating in our AMA Contest for our 2 year anniversary!
We didn’t expect so many questions!
Our contest has ended and this forum thread has been closed for commenting.

(Any questions that came in after this deadline, will unfortunately be removed for clarity)

We saw a lot of great questions and we will go ahead and categorize them for our Ambassadors to select 30 ‘Best Questions’, in the coming days. After that, our whole community has the right to vote (by liking the best questions), on a separate forum thread!

Please be on the look out for any updates! Again, thanks for all your participation!
