The Cardano Foundation is focused on driving the adoption of blockchain technology and we strongly believe that building a vibrant open source community around our technology is a key part to achieving that goal. The Linux Foundation, with its outstanding track record as facilitator of collaboration around interesting open source technology, is a perfect place for us to be.”
