区块链技术是使用和扩展我们所知的互联网的一种强大方式,它将改变我们的世界。就像互联网一样,这种变化将带来很多新的机会,但在这一点上,它对大多数人来说似乎非常新奇和神秘。找到关于区块链的良好信息可能是一个挑战。网上的大多数信息都被归入技术开发人员论坛或金融学家的激烈讨论。更糟糕的是,虽然可以预测,但疯狂的人大量涌现:人们兜售炒作和蛇皮膏,把这个或那个新币吹捧为万无一失的快速致富计划。即使是主流新闻通常也有不足之处,因为突发新闻头条的爆米花通常缺乏背景和与大局的联系。

Lido Nation是一个让普通人和新人了解区块链世界的一个角落的网站–特别是一个叫做Cardano的项目,以及它的相关货币ADA。我们将大的概念分解成可消化的小块,并提供背景,以了解为什么你应该关心。 网站访问者可以在评论中互动,或提交有关他们想学习的文章建议。每周五中午(中部时间)我们都会在线进行公开论坛讨论、问答或简短的演讲。

那么,我们为什么要做–或者说我们是如何赚钱的?Lido Nation也是一个 "赌注池"–或Cardano网络中的一个节点。Cardano使用节点操作员的分布式网络来处理、验证和确保新交易。当Lido Nation节点为Cardano完成其工作时,我们会得到金钱上的奖励。这是一个可以成为全职工作的副业,而且是一个我们真正相信的项目。

下一个问题是我们为什么选择Cardano?有成千上万的区块链项目和硬币可以选择。你已经听说过比特币和以太坊,你可能知道在这些之外还有很多其他的项目存在。事实上,几乎每天都有新的 "替代币 "出现。你可能不知道的是,大多数这些都不是全新的、原创的想法。 大多数替代币不过是比特币或以太坊协议的副本,在包装上贴了一个新标签。他们中的一些人通过这里或那里的调整增加了一点自己的味道,但许多硬币是不折不扣的模仿者,希望赚取快钱。其他硬币有一些原创的想法,但设计的目的很狭窄,如特定类型的金融工具,或一个NFT平台。大多数硬币通过ICO进入市场,即为项目筹集资金的 "首次代币发行"。从那里,它是沉没或游泳。一些硬币可能会成为长期有用和有价值的东西,但许多硬币不会,如果它们在成为广泛价值之前就耗尽了开发和维护其网络的资金。更重要的是,那些依赖与比特币和以太坊相同的协议的币种,依赖重型计算能力和能源使用来执行网络功能,从而引发了关于可扩展性和可持续性的问题。

Cardano是一种完全不同的努力。它的设计是原创的,基于同行评议的学术研究。 它是为长期效用、全球扩展和人道主义价值而建立的。让我们逐一考虑这些。

长期效用
与那些当ICO的钱用完后就陷入困境的项目不同,Cardano被设计成一个自筹资金的财库。网络费用的一小部分被导向一个国库,用于资助网络开发和维护。这保护了Cardano不受世界市场起伏的影响,并确保长期的生存能力和实力。

全球扩展 Cardano有几个设计元素,是其扩展能力的关键。首先,它使用第三代区块链概念,称为 "Proof-of-Stake "来执行网络功能。它也有一个2层的架构,账本与计算层分开。最后,它使用一种记录方法,允许只使用最小的功能比特信息进行账本更新。这些设计选择使它的速度非常快,在全球范围内扩展,并且非常节能。

人道主义价值 Cardano在其价值观、结构和重点方面明显是以人为本和人道主义的。关于网络如何发展和使用的决定是由社区提出和投票决定的。因此,Cardano项目是多样化和鼓舞人心的,就像人一样。Cardano项目包括使用区块链为埃塞俄比亚的学生提供安全和稳定的教育记录,为得不到服务的人群创造新的金融工具,在大学里创建和资助区块链研究实验室,以及优先将培训和新闻资源翻译成其他语言。这些努力正在为全世界的采用和机会铺平道路。在Cardano生态系统的所有角落,"目的驱动 "的想法是显而易见的,从其…
