What is Cardano?

Cardano is a 3rd generation proof of stake blockchain using Ouroboros consensus. It aims to provide scalability, sustainability and interoperability.

How does Cardano work?

Cardano proof of stake where token holders can operate a stake pool to produce blocks and validate transactions.

Blocks are divided into epochs and slots.

And who gets to produce a block is determined by randomization and amount of stake.

  • Larger stake equals higher chance.
  • Block producer is rewarded with ADA as incentive.


  • Can delegate their ADA to stake pools.
  • Earn staking rewards.
  • Switch their delegating at any time.

FISO (Fair initial stake pool offering)

With a lot of new projects launching on Cardano users can delegate to their respective stake pools.

Users are rewarded with the projects’ tokens instead of ADA or sometimes both.
