A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF CARDANO

Cardano is an open-source, public, Proof of Stake blockchain founded by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson in 2015 and named after the Italian polymath Gerolamo Cardano.

To know more about Cardano, kindly read my previous article on it.

CARDANO: BLOCKCHAIN AS A SCIENCE

In that publication, I overview Cardano’s Development, Blockchain architecture, and stake pool operators(SPOs) e.t.c.

CARDANO WALLETS AND ONBOARDING

Cardano boasts of a host of wallet projects building on the blockchain. These wallets include Nami, Yoroi, Gero, CCVault, AdaLite, Cardwallet e.t.c. The most popular wallet supported by the most dexes and projects is Nami Wallet

Nami’s Chrome Download page

Created by the berry pool, the Nami wallet is the most supported Cardano wallet with over 200k users. 
Like other Cardano wallets, It supports unique features like Staking, Collaterals e.t.c.

To use Nami wallet;

  1. Download the browser extension here.
  2. Open the extension and create a wallet on the webpage opened.
  3. Do not forget to back up your seed phrase immediately as you cannot view it in-app.
  4. Do not use your nami wallet seed phrase on other wallets to have the best experience.

CARDANO DEFI PROTOCOLS

I started following Cardano in mid-2021 and although Smart Contracts went live September 12, a lot of projects already had plans to build on Cardano. 
This made Defi rich, boasting of various DEXes and Defi protocols.
Some of these include;

CARDANO NFTs.

Currently, over 3,111,220 tokens are live on Cardano, and CNFTs(Cardano NFTs )consist of a large percentage of that number.

CARDANO METAVERSE & GAMING

Heard about PAVIA? Well, there’s Cornucopias and that’s not all.
