EMURGO & Cardano Partners Celebrate Second Year Anniversary of ADA Listing
SINGAPORE SEPTEMBER 30 2019 / EMURGO – [EMURGO](https://emurgo.io/) \- the official commercial arm of [Cardano](https://www.cardano.org/en/home/) \- announces a special celebration of the second year anniversary of the initial exchange listing of Cardano’s native underlying cryptocurrency ADA. EMURGO along with Cardano ecosystem partners [The Cardano Foundation](https://cardanofoundation.org/) & [IOHK](https://iohk.io/), marked the special occasion with a celebratory event for the Cardano community in the picturesque city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria on September 28th, 2019. This event represented an opportunity to highlight the accomplishments made by EMURGO and its Cardano ecosystem partners towards building a global Cardano and to celebrate the growing worldwide Cardano community.
In a short amount of time, EMURGO & its Cardano ecosystem partners have successfully started developing the first, third-generation public blockchain to evolve out of a research-first driven approach and a top blockchain protocol according to key industry commentators. It is also the first, provably secure proof-of-stake blockchain and it is fully open source. Cardano seeks to deliver more advanced features than any protocol previously developed, built for governments, institutions, and enterprises. What makes Cardano stand out is that it is built to be scalable, sustainable, and interoperable with other blockchains & legacy systems, and embraces a qualitative set of design principles and engineering best practices, including peer review and implementation of high assurance code. Later this year, Cardano will transition into the [Shelley era](https://emurgo.io/en/blog/shelley-cardano), bringing a new set of features including full decentralization, delegation, & staking pools, to the Cardano blockchain.
