Three Entities Supporting the Cardano Project
Cardano developer Input Output is an engineering company that builds cryptocurrencies and blockchains for academic institutions, government entities and corporations; the platform offers more advanced features than any protocol yet developed, and the first to evolve out of a scientific philosophy. The large team of expert engineers and researchers drawn from around the world started by deconstructing the concept of a cryptocurrency; then, incorporating a groundbreaking Proof of Stake algorithm, Ouroboros. The IOHK team employed a first principles approach driven by peer reviewed academic research to build Cardano from the ground up.
