 Cardano Blockchain 3.0 ~ ADA Cryptocurrency

The Cardano Foundation, an independent-entity based in Switzerland, supervises the development of Cardano and its ecosystem; they are committed to protecting and promoting Cardano, and to advocating on behalf of the users and community of the protocol.
  
Input|Output is the engineering firm developing the Cardano platform, which has more advanced features of any protocol to date, and is the first to evolve out of a scientific philosophy. The large team of expert engineers and researchers, drawn from around the globe, began by deconstructing the concept of a cryptocurrency and incorporating a ground-breaking 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.
  
Emurgo is a global blockchain technology company providing solutions for developers, startups, enterprises and governments integrating onto the Cardano blockchain. EMURGO develops enterprise-grade applications, builds developer tools, invests in startups, and provides blockchain education; the company has offices and manages projects in Singapore, Japan, the USA, India, and Indonesia.
