Learn More about Cardano

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Cardano has an amazing community! Markus and Robert from the community have created an education hub on Cardano called Clio.1. On this website, you can find lessons on how to write Plutus smart contracts. They will soon be posting an overview of the Ouroboros family, with more lessons to come!

Be Aware of Scams

As cryptocurrencies gain popularity and blockchain technology grows, so do the number of scams. Cryptocurrency scams continue to multiply online despite the vigilance of users and we are no exception. We have seen scam Daedalus apps, fake Cardano social media accounts or private messages impersonating members of the project. This is a friendly reminder to all of our community members to stay vigilant across any of the Cardano community channels.
