Shelley is fully launched!
by Charles Hoskinson
The Shelley mainnet is officially live. In case you missed the big story, Shelley is the second developmental pillar of Cardano and it brings decentralization to the network.
What does Shelley mean for you? Shelley empowers you to get involved with Cardano.
If you have the technical and business skills, you can now run a stake pool and earn ada for helping to maintain the Cardano network. Sign up to Stake Pool School to receive onboarding training.
Not interested in running a stake pool? You can earn rewards by delegating your ada to stake pools who run the network on your behalf. Learn more about delegating your ada here or get started with our step by step guide to delegating.
Are you a developer? You can already start building some solutions on Cardano while we await more functionalities (like Smart Contracts) with Goguen - due to be released later this year. Get started here.
Thanks to Shelley, the Cardano network is now powered by a community of hundreds and potentially thousands of stake pools and stake pool operators globally. Now, Cardano will grow to become exponentially more decentralized than first and second generation blockchains.
