Boosting Cardano’s throughput with script referencing

During the Basho development phase, the ledger continues to optimize and scale for the growing demand. Along with parameter adjustments and node upgrades, Plutus capability continues to develop at a steady pace.

Plutus is a living, evolving smart contract language. Cardano improvement proposals – also known as CIPs – play an important role in this evolution. Through the CIP mechanism, anyone can suggest an improvement to Cardano. CIPs encourage community engagement and proposal reviews, which are continually maintained on the Cardano Foundation’s GitHub repository

Designed for global reach and enhanced functionality, Cardano is now moving from its core capabilities to a living and breathing smart contract platform. Gradual optimization and scientifically verified system improvements lead the way for Cardano's growth and maturity.

‘Move fast and break things’ isn’t the way Cardano is built. Working at the forefront of technology, and with our research agenda at the core, we use formal methods, such as mathematical specifications, property-based tests, and proofs to deliver high assurance software systems and give confidence to users for the…

Introducing our new peer-to-peer (P2P) testnet

Cardano continues to build momentum with more features and capabilities being steadily added to the blockchain. As we recently reported, we are optimizing the network to increase throughput so more transactions can be processed faster, and decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts created and used more efficiently. This week, we have kicked off an important new…

The AGIX ERC20 converter testnet is now live

In our previous blog post earlier this summer, we shared how Cardano would support the migration of ERC20 tokens from Ethereum, working initially with SingularityNET and their AGIX token. Today we can announce that the AGIX ERC20 converter testnet is live and ready for community evaluation.

SingularityNET is our first partner in this initiative. And the converter is a…
