    2021 Update

    Here is a quick update of the Cardano part of the ecosystem I have been following this year up until now. Quite a lot has been done: Shelley has been running without fault and we had several upgrade happening Plutus has been released (we are still awaiting for the Plutus Application Backend) Numerous node optimization On my side, I haven’t been idle for all this time either: Monitor and upgrade the hardware and software of the pool Was part of the Plutus Pioneer program (I am toying with some ideas at the moment, and will post when I have more updates) Have been digging in the network stack to try…

    Cardano Development Update – April, 30th 2020

    Hi guys, Today was a good day in the Cardano Ecosystem and we got Aparna and Tim giving us a few updates on where we are with the overall project and where we are going. I’ll try to give a brief summary of this April Cardano Development Update about what was discussed during this 1h online video, which hopefully you will find interesting. Beginning of the video was an introduction on the points that are currently being worked on, and not necessarily all linked directly to Shelley, but more to the overall project. Aparna and Tim gave us a brief summary: PWC Workshop: Roadmap updates, how to present Cardano’s vision,…

    Byron Reboot is here!

    Hi guys, Last week has been a very good week for the Cardano Community and has been the result of 18 months of hard work from the people working on the Cardano Project! Lot of content has already been releases as well, so I will link the ones I saw around. As a sum-up, what we got: A new Daedalus, called Daedalus Flight. This is a mainnet wallet, used for delivering and testing features ealier, before it lands on the main Daedalus. An update of the current Mainnet Daedalus. It contains all the new code that IOHK spent almost 2 years rewriting, and does not contain any of the Serokell…

    Staking – Incentivized testnet

    Hi guys! We are finally live for the incentivized testnet, hourra! This has been a long road since the beginning of the project, and we will be able to see all the fruit coming out of it. I’ve been playing for few weeks now with the code base for the Jormungandr node, and it has been quite some learning there. I’ve been thinking of some article that I could do for the site, and a detailed step by step guide on how to create stake pools seemed like a good starting point for a lot of us. Translation of this content in other language could help as well I think…

    Ledger Specs

    Hey guys! It has been a long time since the last article, but here is something that others might find interesting. I compiled the PDF for the ledger specification that they are writing at IOHK, and was thinking that others would be lazy to install Nix just for this. Here it is: http://cardano-universe.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/ledger-spec.pdf I’m also reading a lot of what guys are doing on the Rust repository, quite interesting if you are looking to read on your free time 🙂 Good reading!

    Crowdfunding with Plutus

    Hi guys, Today I go through the crowdfunding example available on the playground. This is quite a good example as it shows how to use events and react to what happens on the blockchain. I’ve tried as well to include some pictures to better visualise what is happening there. You can find the article here: https://www.cardano-universe.com/plutus/plutus-tuto-part-3/ Let me know your thoughts about it! 🙂 Have a good reading!

    Let’s compile Plutus!

    Hi guys, Here is a second article on Plutus, where I try to explain how Plutus is structured and how to make some basic usage of it (DataScript, RedeemerScript, ValidatorScript, …) This is a bit tricky and it took me a while to get my head around how it actually works, and I’ll try on the next article to go further on how it works (by continuing going through the examples available on the playground and including some extra pictures). You can find the article here: https://www.cardano-universe.com/plutus/plutus-tuto-part-2/ Let me know what you think about it!

    First Plutus Articles

    Hi guys! I have written two articles about Plutus that you might find interesting. The first one is an attempt to summarise why Plutus, why did they bother inventing a new language that will target Cardano. The second goes through the first/easiest example of Plutus code available on the Plutus playground, which introduce the wallet API. You can find these articles here: http://cardano-universe.com/plutus/ Have fun!

    Dear Reader, Thank you for loosing yourself in this lost region of the web, some place that few of you are ever gonna read.  I have been now following several projects in the open source space without really getting involved in them for several years now. I was mainly playing with them, looking at how it works, trying to imagine how those improve our world. I have been impressed by the time and devotion that people are able to spend on projects that are able to profit to the community, and I decided that, even if it is an infinitesimal participation, that may help someone else, one day. I had…
