IOHK Shares Blueprint And How Cardano Aims To Provide Over 1 Billion People With Digital Identities

IOHK, the team behind Cardano, recently shared the blueprint for users to handle conversations about the network. The primer covered the essence of the network, its native token, and wallets. According to the blog post, IOHK wittingly advised users to keep away from cryptocurrency conversations but notes that it is almost inevitable for the topic not to make an appearance.

They wrote:

“Certainly, we’d advise putting the phone down and switching off from the crypto craziness that will still be waiting for you when you return. But should you find yourself cornered at the hearth by some crypto-curious relatives who just need to know about ADA, and Cardano, and blockchain, and all that, well, this is how the tale goes.”

The post introduced Cardano as the digital ledger using ADA as a native currency that embodies the tenets of decentralization, unlike traditional banking institutions. They add that the network is taking giant steps toward being fully decentralized with all decisions being taken by the community members.

 To ensure trust in the system, Cardano uses the Ouroboros protocol, which is named after the ancient symbol of eternity. In addition to its purely decentralized outlook, IOHK observes that Cardano shot to fame in the light of Bitcoin’s environmental woes. Cardano was fondly called the “greenest coin,” and Charles Hoskinson once remarked that the network utilized less than 1% of Bitcoin’s energy consumption.

New blocks on the network are created by stake pools which are the heart of the Cardano network. ADA, the native token, was named after British mathematician Ada Lovelace and can be staked by users to get regular rewards. 

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels 

Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA has been extremely bullish during the ongoing session. It does face stiff resistance at around $1.60, so we could see ADA test the resistance levels. If it is unable to move past this level, ADA could drop to $1.50.
