We are delighted to announce our membership in The Linux Foundation, the non-profit organization that enables mass innovation through open source. The Cardano Foundation has joined as a Gold member, becoming the only non-profit organization active at this level.
Cardano Foundation Director of Open Source Dirk Hohndel spoke yesterday at the Open Source Summit in Austin in an exclusive Q&A with Linux creator Linus Torvalds.
Commenting on this event, Mr. Hohndel said:
“Open source is about communities. It is about bringing together people from different companies, countries and backgrounds. 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 of achieving that goal. The Linux Foundation, with its distinguished history of facilitating collaboration around exciting open source technology, is a perfect place for us.”
Meanwhile, Linux Foundation CEO Jim Zemlin noted that:
“The Cardano Foundation represents a natural path toward adopting blockchain technologies to enable decentralized computing across a diverse set of applications. With Dirk leading the Cardano open source ecosystem and the strong community already supporting this work, we are excited to use our resources to build into the future together.”
All of us at the Cardano Foundation are excited about the opportunity to further solidify our commitment to open source through collaboration with the Linux Foundation on activities that support our mission to drive adoption of the Cardano blockchain, while while we contributed to the positive advancement of the blockchain. as a technology that changes the world.
