Description

The journey didn't end with bitcoin.

Bitcoin was only the beginning.

Bitcoin was the first generation of blockchain technology and while it solved a lot of problems, it also has a lot of limitations.

Along comes Ethereum led by Vitalik Buterin.

Ethereum is a second generation blockchain.

Imagine Ethereum as what happened when Javascript and dynamic programming was added to the boring static HTML pages that represented the early web.

It made possible the experiences like Instagram, Gmail and Facebook.

But there's a new level of blockchain technology that is beyond what Ethereum can provide.

Welcome to Cardano.

Cardano is a third generation blockchain.

Most people don't know that the founder of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, was on Ethereum's leadership team during its earliest days.

He was able to see all the problems that Ethereum had and then use what he learne to make a next-level blockchain protocol.

In this course you get a simplified and easy to understand overview of Cardano and what makes it such a revolutionary blockchain innovation.
