We’ve been looking forward to sharing more news with you this week about Cardano’s exciting collaboration with New Balance. Well, after an event in LA on Thursday evening, we can announce that New Balance has teamed up with IOHK to create NB Realchain: a pilot authentication system aimed at protecting the authenticity of its collector’s edition shoes. NB Realchain lets each customer log their purchase on the Cardano blockchain. Verification on the system means that all goods sold, even those coming from a third party, can be digitally proven to be authentic. This is an exciting and important collaboration. Bringing blockchain technology to global brands and mainstream retailers is a big step for decentralized technologies. IOHK’s collaboration with New Balance is the first commercial deployment of its blockchain. A successful pilot for NB Realchain shows how the global retail industry can make use of distributed systems.

Welcome to the Cardano Newsletter! Published by the Cardano community team every two weeks, this newsletter will provide you with news, updates and events about the project! Cardano Ecosystem Celebrating Ada Lovelace Day In 1844 a paper was released by a person that went by the name of “A.A.L”. A.A.L. discussed a theoretical machine being worked on by mathematician Charles Babbage. A.A.L. then theorized that this machine could one day be able to perform all kinds of complex equations and even create music. A.A.L. wrote a set of commands for the still incomplete machine that would allow it to generate Bernoulli numbers. It was not until 20 years after her death that A.A.L. was revealed to be “Augusta Ada Lovelace”. Today she is considered the world’s first computer programmer. While Ada Lovelace came very close to being featured on the new British £50 note – she unfortunately did not make it.
