Unlocking Cardano

Cardano is a decentralized and open-source public blockchain platform that employs a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. Launched in 2015, the platform is led by Charles Hoskinson, one of the co-founders of Ethereum. Utilizing its native cryptocurrency, ADA, Cardano enables peer-to-peer transactions on its platform.

ADA is integral to Cardano’s proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, serving as a reward for blockchain-related tasks or available for purchase on exchanges.

In Cardano’s PoS system, a node’s capacity to generate blocks is determined by its staked ADA. Staked ADA represents an interest held by pool participants, secured with pledged ADA, which serves as collateral, inaccessible for spending.

Investors engage in Cardano’s staking pools, collaborative groups of ADA holders who have pledged their coins, to collectively update the ledger, create new blocks, and earn rewards. Users who stake coins can potentially become validators.

Staking and validation involve two approaches, staking ADA in an existing pool or establishing a new one. Stake pools conduct transaction validation work. Public pools distribute rewards to members based on their staked ADA, while private pools provide rewards exclusively to the owner(s). Running a stake pool demands skills in server management, node monitoring, key management and other administrative tasks.

Cardano divides its developmental progress into distinct “eras” named after prominent figures in the realms of poetry and computer science. Currently, the platform is poised for the transition from the Basho era to the final phase, Voltaire.

Voltaire stands as the concluding stage in Cardano’s development, focusing on introducing features like voting and treasury management through the utilization of previously integrated smart contract functionality and system enhancements.

Upon the completion of Voltaire, IOHK envisions releasing the fully decentralized blockchain and network to the community. At this stage, Cardano will be open for community-driven development, maintenance and security. Unlike some other cryptocurrencies, ADA cannot be mined. Instead, it must be acquired through exchange transactions or earned through network participation.
