EP025 - Building on Cardano Smart Contracts

This week we look at the Cardano ecosystem and find out who is actually building on Cardano right now.

I also have an interview with Chris Swenor, the Co-founder and CEO of Reach Platform, a programming language for blockchain smart contracts that is platform agnostic. Developers can get started building smart contracts with minimal work and knowledge of the core fundamentals of the blockchain and start writing smart contracts and deploying.

EP023 - How to Earn Cardano (ADA)

In episode 22, we looked into how much ADA you need to retire. For some people, it still seems impossible to get enough ADA soon enough to retire and it bought up a lot of questions and FOMO (Fear of Missing Out).

We'll be covering options and ideas in regards to how you can possibly earn more ADA, from selling Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to selling products and services for ADA.

This idea is a transfer of ADA wealth and assets around the ecosystem from one user to another.

Ep022 - How to earn passive income & retire on ADA

Can you earn a living or retire from staking rewards on Cardano? This week I look at different strategies in how to earn more from ADA.

In the 80s, interest rates were high and it was easy to save money and earn interest from a savings account or long term deposit. Those days are now gone with negative interest rates in some countries.

Holding and staking ADA on the other hand will give you a solid 5.5% return on ADA as it is writing into the protocol.

I also talk about other methods of earning rewards from other projects and protocols on the Cardano blockchain from DeFi and DEXes.

EP021 - Best Security Practises for Your Crypto Assets

In this episode, I look at best practices when securing your online life for crypto assets. Taking responsibility for your own security is the most important aspect when starting to buy and store crypto.

I go through various tips for securing your wallets, seed phrases, email accounts, two-factor authentication, secret answers and general exchange security features.

Knowing all this will ensure you're as secure as possible online.

Lastly, I have Professor Nick Nikiforakis join me on an interview to talk about online Cardano scams. These scams are all over the Internet and YouTube promising to double your ADA after you send ADA to them.

EP019 - Cardano Smart Contracts, Updates, Alonzo, dApps, Partnerships, NFT Marketplaces

Full show notes at

Cardano is Moves Closer Towards Smart Contracts
With Alonzo White, the second stage of the smart contracts roll out for Cardano being successfully forked on Testnet, we are seeing more and more users being onboarded in a controlled and steady-state, with currently 100 people executing smart contracts on Testnet. This number should double by the time the Alonzo White phase is complete and the teams move on to the Alonzo Purple phase. This slow and steady approach ensures that there are no configuration issues or scalability issues of the network.

In one of Charles Hoskinson's latest live updates, he mentioned that there are a few things that are needed to get to the Alonzo hard fork event.

Fully operating node, which has occurred and,
a fully integrated wallet backed, which should be finished next week. The Daedalus wallet will be connected and hopefully be ready by September 10th.
Once these two factors are checked, then the final count down to a hard fork can start.

The remaining development required isn't related to the hard fork combinator event of the blockchain but relates to the infrastructure that developers will need to work and run their applications on the blockchain.

The Plutus Application Backend is the infrastructure for the developers to roll out smart contracts and decentralise applications easily.

Charles mentioned that the hard fork event could be late August or early September with a possible date of August 31st as the potential launch date.

Users will be able to run smart contracts at this point but the parallel development of the infrastructure for the Plutus Application Backend will most likely continue after this point to have a better environment for developers to build and deploy applications on. Some developers and teams already have tooling and code ready to deploy.

At the moment more and more developers are coming into the Alonzo environment and testing for bugs, reporting and improving the entire infrastructure. We'll see more iterative improvements along the way as more integration partners come on board.

The rollout for Alonzo is a lot easier and smoother than Shelly rollout.

August is crunch time for the teams working on Alonzo and the rollout of smart contracts. Good luck to the teams.

FUD Ethereum Maxis
Ethereum users defend their investments creating fear and doubt in the Cardano ecosystem.
Etherum is struggling to change to proof of stake will it happen? One day I'm sure.
With issues from lost keys to a stake pool to costs and difficulty of moving to PoS.

More Wallets Are Being Developed
Wallet integrations for dApps including Daedalus are in the works.

Semantic web 3 wallets will also be needed to power a lot of the decentralised finance applications that I've been reviewing over the last month.

Wallets like Nami wallet, which I've done a quick review on and the upcoming release of the new Yoroi wallet will enable users access to these apps to interact with the blockchain.

We also have a review on wallet setups for the upcoming dApp earn of Cardano.

If you want to learn more about some of the new upcoming dApps that are on the blockchain see our previous episodes:


US Infrastructure Bill with a Side of Crypto Tax
US congress looks at passing a new infrastructure bill, and also slip in a major crypto tax to raise an extra 30B in tax revenue in the country. Unsure where that number comes from.

Novellia Calls It a Day
In a recent post from the Novellia team, they announced that one of their core developers have decided to move on. As a result, they have been trying to meet the shortfall in resources by working more over time but unfortunately, it wasn't sustainable.

As a result, the team have decided to release all they had on open source Github repositories and call it a day.

I wish the team all the best and hopefully will see more from the founders in the future as they start working on other things. If you've delegated to their stake pool you will need to move your delegation to another pool.

SundaeSwap & Liquid Finance

Pool Round-Up
Since Fed 22nd the pool has gone from 1000 ADA to 10.6M in 5 months. That's doing ok.

EP013 Teaching Martina the Basics of Cardano

In this podcast episode, I bring in Martina, my partner to talk about all the concepts around blockchain and Cardano that we have covered in the last 12 episodes of the podcast.

Martina is a long time holder of various cryptocurrencies and knows very little about Cardano, Proof of Stake, DeFi and other concepts that have evolved int he crypto space over the last 3 years.

Martina asks the questions and break down all the concepts until the penny drops and the concepts all sink in.

Leave a comment and let us know if you want Martina on the show more often to ask some of the questions that I would normally gloss over as I assume you all already know.

EP012 - Novellia NFT Game Development Platform with Will

Will from Rektangular Studios joins me to talk about their development platform, Novellia. It is currently in Fund 4 of Project Catalyst which is almost ready to be voted on.

Will takes us through the project and what they're trying to achieve with their platform which will allow developers to build NFTs in-game and allow for NFT marketplaces for their games. This will create a residual income from their games allowing for more development.

Game development is hard with various marketplaces such as Apple and Google taking a large chunk of profits.

Listen to this episode to find out how Novellia will solve this problem using Cardano and blockchain as a solution to create new in-game economies.

EP009 - How to Stake Cardano (ADA) and Understanding Rewards

In this episode, we take a step back and do a deep dive into the basic concepts of staking on the Cardano blockchain and understanding how rewards work.

After running a Cardano Meetup the other week, it is clear that the idea and concepts around staking are still foreign to a lot of newcomers to cryptocurrencies and the basic groundwork needs to be laid out before other concepts and ideas can be worked on. With a room filled with 15 Cardano enthusiasts, we aimed to chat about security and NFTs but it was clear that one of the main concepts around Cardano staking and Proof of Stake needed to be discussed.
