I come from austria and have been working for 5 years as a software developer in the industrial sector and am therefore very enthusiastic about technology. In september 2017 i came across Cardano and since then i have been fascinated by the philosophy of how IOHK works on this project. In order to contribute to this game changing project I am participating in the testing phase of Shelley since october 2019. And I will continue to run my pool in Mainnet.
Cardano is a 3rd generation blockchain project and uses the staking algorythm.
It is developed by the following companies and foundations:
1 Block-Producing + 3 Relays + 1 Monitoring Servers with Minimum 4GB Ram.
Various data centers.
Monitoring + Alerting with Grafana.
Automated processes with own scripts.
