What is Built on Cardano?
BoC (as we friendlily refer to it) is a public information source. It is an unbiased and easy to navigate map of the projects and tools of the Cardano ecosystem that is designed to foster learning and discovery. This definition will undoubtedly evolve as BoC, the ecosystem, and the Cardano Blockchain evolve.
What is BoC’s goal?
Good question, the more we work and the deeper down the Cardano rabbit hole we travel the more the answer to this question evolves. Currently the answer is:
To provide users with impartial information through a lens unadulterated by marketing speak, superlatives, and paid for content. Alongside this informational and educational content more advanced users will also be able to find the data points they need to understand the ecosystem and individual projects.
What makes BoC different?
Firstly, we believe that we are the first to try to collate and distill down, into easily consumable pages, everything that makes up, and is being developed in, the Cardano ecosystem. So in that case we're not only different, we’re unique!
Secondly, we are attempting to do this without a bias toward any particular project, developer, or any other facet of the Cardano-verse or crypto-verse, a combination of which, all too often, can influence a project’s words and portrayal.
Thirdly, our information and the way we display it is designed to be transparent and digestible, and is specifically aimed at not scaring away anyone who is new to the space; rather, we want to promote curiosity, exploration, and discovery in the Cardano-verse. This is why search results are alway randomized.
Who are you?
We are a small group of Cardano advocates who saw a widening gap between a growing ecosystem and the availability of unbiased and organized information on all the exciting things being developed in the space. We decided a solution was needed and set about creating one.
