What does Cardano do?


#1

Hi all I am devyash from India. I want to know what Cardano project is all about.

Welcome to the forum @jaindevash I see many new projects getting thought up and people are working toward implementing them so it might take some time to learn all about it, but your in the right place for it.
https://www.cardanohub.org/en/home/ if somehow you missed the home page it really has all the info there.
But the best way to learn about it would to be read through several threads that are focused on any questions you might have.

Hi @jaindevash. Welcome!!

In a condensed nutshell, Cardano is a security focused blockchain that harnesses the latest research and engineering insights to build a platform suitable for the highest value applications. Built on a foundation of peer-reviewed research created through partnerships with the world’s foremost universities, Cardano aims to create a platform for decentralised applications and smart contracts that can be processed with a technique called formal verification. This allows logical proof of the correctness of code and smart contracts, for those applications where value is high and security is paramount. Cardano combines this with an innovative layered approach that separates accounting of value from all other smart contract and computation activity. This means functionality can be added to smart contract capabilities without changing the protocol responsible for Ada holdings.

But like Christopher mentioned, the Cardano hub and the forum are great resources to look at. As well as the roadmap to see all the developments in progress and what the end protocol will look like: https://cardanoroadmap.com
