  • Show Notes:

  • Units

  • 1 ADA = 1,000,000 Lovelaces
  • 1 Lovelace = 1/1,000,000 Ada
  • Ada has six decimal places.
  • 1.000000 = 1 Ada
  • 0.000001 = 1 Lovelace

  • HASKELL IS QUICK AND RELIABLE.
  • PLUTUS is a Turing Complete language utilising Haskell, and a Haskell library, and more power than you need for many applications. 

  • MARLOWE is a DSL beneath this, and written for Smart Contract development.

  • On 11th December 2018, IOHK hosted a public day of presentations and debate with IOHK’s scientists and engineers about Plutus, the programming platform for smart contracts on the Cardano blockchain and Marlowe, the simple smart contracts language for financiers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSpFOADHLqw
  • The sessions during the event introduced Marlowe, the financial smart contracts language designed to be used by financiers; the Plutus Playground for testing code; and Meadow, a web-based tool that helps create and test Marlowe smart contracts.

Send me ADA!
