Happy New Year to the Cardano Community! EMURGO’s very productive 2019 has come to an end, and 2020 has just started! Now is a good time to look back at the products EMURGO has developed and delivered for the Cardano community over the past year. Official Cardano partner and commercial arm EMURGO drives the global adoption of Cardano and brings value to ADA holders by building, investing in, educating, and advising projects or organizations that adopt Cardano’s decentralized blockchain ecosystem.
EMURGO’s systems development unit led by EMURGO CTO Nicolas Arqueros & R&D Engineering Lead Sebastien Guillemot, launched two new Cardano ADA products in 2019 - the Seiza Cardano Blockchain Explorer & Tangata Manu - along with our first developed product Yoroi Wallet in October 2018. In addition to helping startups and companies leverage the Cardano ecosystem by building tailored products & services to suit their needs, EMURGO’s systems development unit is equally focused on delivering real utility to ADA holders by increasing the practical applicability of Cardano ADA in the real world.
Let’s take a look at Seiza and Tangata Manu in their inaugural year of 2019.
Seiza Cardano Blockchain Explorer - Showing the Story Behind Cardano’s Shelley
EMURGO announced the development of Seiza Cardano Blockchain Explorer in April 2019 and it went live in May 2019. The name Seiza is derived from the Japanese word for “constellation”, as its objective is to be a total comprehensive Cardano blockchain navigation guide for ADA users. Seiza intends ADA users to track their transactions and other vital information related to the Cardano blockchain including wallet histories, addresses, block size, and stake pools, among other real-time data. With the launch of the Cardano Incentivized Testnet and Shelley bringing full decentralization and ADA staking features, Seiza will be compatible with displaying real-time information related to Shelley features once everything is ready.
