Education and Charity — The Cardano Philosophy
ADA Finance follows IOHK’s footsteps, which recently announced a Haskell computer program in Ghana, that empowers 80 students to create projects and applications on the Cardano blockchain. Together with BitDegree, ADA Finance is structuring an academy program to provide formal in-depth training for (up to) 20 Haskell Academists and to bring awareness for Cardano blockchain development.
The Haskell coding language is unique and brings unparalleled advantages for blockchain development and DeFi when it comes to memory and type safety, to mention just two. At the same time, it sits among the toughest coding languages in the world. Finding people that have gone through the Plutus Application Backend (PAB) course before hiring is currently a real challenge. Every CTO wants to have Haskell developers that are ready to start.
The Cardano ecosystem is about to explode, as it is preparing the launch of smart contracts on the Cardano main net. Therefore, the demand for Haskell developers will see significant growth and there are a very limited amount of Haskell developers interested in blockchain. By setting up a Haskell Academy program that will focus on Cardano blockchain development, we hope to deliver more Haskell developers that will help the Cardano ecosystem expand and projects to find vetted developers.
Imagine you could have a role in the infancy stage of the financial revolution that will define tomorrow, wouldn’t you want to be part of that? We not only want to bring DeFi innovation to the Cardano blockchain but also feel the obligation to actively contribute to the growth of the Cardano ecosystem — Christof Waton, Founder & CEO at ADA Finance
Graduates of the academy will be certified by BitDegree and will be offered a paid internship at ADA Finance or partners, adding work experience to the resume. ADA Finance is currently gathering partners to make sure every graduate has an internship position, which can lead to employment.
Everyone at BitDegree is excited to bring the leading EdTech know-how to the crypto world and build the so much-needed Haskell Academy to enable the growth of the ADA ecosystem through newly-minted Haskell developers. We are grateful to the ADA Finance team for bringing us onboard and helping us navigate the ADA ecosystem — Danielius Stasiulis, CEO at BitDegree
ADA Finance Contributes To Staking Pools
This is only the first step that we are taking to bring awareness and contribute to the Cardano ecosystem. ADA Finance posted a tweet on Sunday (7th) where we committed to delegating 100,000 ADA to a staking pool. In crypto, we know not to put all our eggs in 1 basket. We split our delegation to 2 staking pools: 50,133 ADA stake to ST₳YK Pool, and 60,597 ADA stake to GROW Pool, which donates 100% of the pool profits to charity and saves children from poverty.
We went over the initial scheduled 100,000 ADA but we thereby support the staking pools to build blocks for the Cardano blockchain. In line with the vision put forward by Charles Hoskinson, it is in the philosophy of ADA Finance to support, educate, and contribute as much as we can to bring spotlights to the Cardano blockchain and ecosystem!
