This talk is an experience report on the development and operation of a top-10 open blockchain cryptocurrency written in Haskell.

Cardano is a recently released blockchain cryptocurrency system developed by IOHK and implemented primarily in Haskell. It has a number of innovative technologies and a long future roadmap, but in this talk Duncan will focus less on the 'what' and more on the question of 'how' and on transferable lessons:

  • How the system has been and is being developed;
  • How we balance rapid development with higher assurance development;
  • Playing to Haskell's strengths;
  • Opportunities for higher assurance with formal specifications;
  • Bridging the gap between research and products;
  • Building a larger Haskell development team and training;
  • What has gone well, and what has gone badly, and lessons we can learn.
