Cardano is a blockchain. It’s the most significant competitor to the Ethereum blockchain and ultimately Bitcoin.

Here we explain all you need to know about blockchain and Cardano, simply.

Why should I care about blockchain?

What is Cardano?

Cardano is a blockchain like Bitcoin is a Blockchain. But newer, smarter and with much bigger aims.
(We get into what a blockchain actually is below).

Cardano has been created to change the world, for the better, for ordinary people. Through fairness, openness and transparency.

It’s a top 10 blockchain, respected by many, on its way to becoming number one. Not through big claims or glitzy showmanship. But through slow and steady hard work, building it the right way, from the ground up, using the very latest research and technologies.

You may have heard bad things about blockchains and “Web3” (another name used to refer to blockchains). A lot of it is fair – but it doesn’t apply to all blockchains. Cardano is one of the good ones. Want to know why you should care? Read on…

I became involved in Cardano back in 2017. Originally I came to invest and take a bet on the future. The more I learnt about it the more I wanted to be part of the groundswell movement that is Web3 and in particular Cardano. During this time I’ve seen my investments plummet, reach staggering highs and falls back down to earth, as the crazy crypto markets play out.
Blockchains can be an overwhelming space for someone new to come into. There's the bad sides of crypto that you've probably heard about, but also many brilliant people creating revolutionary new projects and services. This website is my personal project to try and pass on some of my knowledge and experience to new people curious about it. To try and convey the brilliant sides of it all that are going to bring so many exciting new things.

This website is a personal project, aiming to try and explain what can be quite complex concepts to non-technical people. Why the good blockchains should exist, why Web3 is important and why Cardano in particular should be something everyone eventually knows about.
