Progress report – Cardano Carbon Footprint

We have to be honest, we didn’t manage to work much on the Cardano Carbon Footprint over Christmas. It is still a toss up decisions to either work on the CNC Ala ISPO with multiple deadlines and a large team to keep going OR our Cardano Footprint project. Over the Christmas period the ISPO work…

Cardano’s Footprint: a Catalyst Idea

We’ve been busy! The SHiFT pool is minting lots of blocks (112 so far!) and it feels pretty cool to have contributed immutable ledger entries to the history of the blockchain. Now we’re trying to take the next step in a precise definition of the environmental impact of Cardano, so that we can help turn…
