full-time Kandidate London

Cardano is one of the largest and most ambitious open source blockchain technology projects undertaken to date. Utilizing innovative concepts from some of the worlds leading cryptographers, mathatieticans and academics, Cardano aims to revolutionize how commercial transactions across multiple different industries are carried out. In the past 2 years, the project has raised over $63 million dollars from over 10,000 investors and publicly launched successfully in September 2017 with a current market capitalization of over $2.5 billion dollars and a vast international community.

The Cardano community is growing day by day across multiple different channels.

We have also built out large local Chinese communities on both Weibo (over 5k) and WeChat (over 1.5k) and a large part of this role is to optimise these channels further.
