Cardano Foundation enters into further partnerships
This year's World Economic Forum in Davos has opened many new doors for Cardano. The Cardano delegation, which includes the Cardano Foundation, IOHK, and Emurgo, said that several partnerships and collaborations are currently in progress, and many more letters of intent and contacts will be made along the way.
The Cardano delegation reaps great success at the World Economic Forum
This year the largest Cardano delegation of all time – IOHK, Emurgo and the Cardano Foundation – took part in the forum. According to Bakyt Azimkanov, Director of PR and Communication at the Cardano Foundation, the visit was extremely successful.
In a video update on the Foundation's YouTube channel, Azimkanov said the ten-person delegation had the opportunity to share ideas and insights at one of the world's most important meetings.
The delegation met with leading academics, top managers and politicians from all over the world and participated in several roundtables. Both Nathan Kaiser, a chairman of the Cardano Foundation, and Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK, spoke about the development and future of fintech and discussed everything from the financial markets to concrete solutions for exchanges and security tokens.
Significant partnerships for Cardano in prospect
However, the Cardano delegation was not only in discussion. Azimkanov said that significant and meaningful results had been seen before the official end of the forum. The meetings that the delegation held throughout the duration of the event resulted in declarations of intent, cooperation and agreements.
The strong scientific background of the project and the research-oriented approach made the delegation an important participant. At one of these roundtables involving the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, the meeting resulted in the approval of a research grant application from the Harvard Berkman Klein Center to investigate blockchain governance.
Although Azimkanov did not provide details of all of the letters of intent received by the delegation, he announced several new partnerships with specific goals. A collaboration has been established with DUST Identity, a technology company focused on developing technologies to identify diamond dust, which will lead to greater transparency and accountability for global organizations.
The delegation also established a relationship with Finka, a Swiss-based non-profit organization, to apply blockchain technology to cattle breeding and to make cattle a viable asset class.
