  • What are some of the most productive/constructive actions that we as Cardano community members can take to assure that vibrant life is being consistently breathed into our ecosystem? Also, how best can we contribute as a whole, individually together, regardless of our experience/ understandings to aide in this Cardano's long-term/short-term success? Whether we be a day one newcomer or veteran participant, what of value is there for us to do that can make a positive lasting impact?

Daniel OzugHaha, one more small question.. What do you believe about Cardano is most empowering? HIDE 12 VOT S With this release will more exchanges be comfortable enough to list ADA or are they waiting for Shelly?


Daniel - CEMA1Coinbase is waiting for Cardano to be truly decentralised (Shelley) HermespoolDo we really need more exchanges? There are plenty... HIDE2 S 11 VOTE A question from a pool operator: after 3 and half months of ITN it seems quite clear that pools located quite far from Europe and US have a lower win ratio on "slot battles" a.k.a. slot multi-leadership events. Do you think it's possible to apply some changes on the selection of the parent block instead of applying the "the first that comes win" rule? Maybe a random selection among all parent blocks received in a limited amount of time could be more fair?

7 VOTES Can you provide any more details around the Dex that Charles eluded to?


6 VOTES Hi Tim and Aparna, Thank you for this live update! Can you please on the state of the pledge mechanics planned for mainnet? It would be great for stakepool operators to be able to plan out their pledge strategy in advance. Best regards f om your passionate community :)

Daniel Tucunduva

HermespoolThis leads me to the question, will it be possible from the beginning to have more than one pledge adress for the pool? HIDE 5 VOT S Hi. Looking forward to the March update and exiting times for Cardano - here is my question: How many people in total are currently involved for each of the phases of development (Shelley, Gougen, Basho and Voltaire)? Also give them all a big thank you for the work they do :)


4 VOTES The Adrestia project was recently unveiled on github but is still quite sparse and hasn't seen updates in a month. What resources from the three entities will be directed toward SDK's?


Jeremy FirsterIs this the updates which includes the libraries for exchanges to easier integrate Cardano? HIDE 4 VOT S Hi Aparna, Tim. Is a new mainnet snapshot planned for the haskell testnet, in order to allow new stake pool operators to participate and test a more massive network ?

Max D

4 VOTES How important is the creation of a Cardano based stablecoin to mass adoption. we think stability can be achieved by algorithm as opposed to by manual governance? What are the benefits of allowing CDPs backed solely by ADA — pitfalls of allowing multi-collateral backing? Can a well designed stablecoin work to stabilize/increase the price of ADA as a side effect? Where is the best place to exchange ideas on stablecoin design?


4 VOTES Do you plan to provide Haskell installation steps or documentation similar way you provided the rust node? Will the stakepools get some official support when switching to Haskell?
