Working on Cardano

The work that happens under-the-hood

Cardano’s Continuity and Vision


Cardano “Continuity” is defined or referred to in the contracts as any approved technical services needed to build or fix current and future areas of the Cardano blockchain. Continuity in this definition can include new development, such as the CIP-1694 governance software, upgrades to components or improvements in testing. Building Cardano is a decentralized and distributed effort. During Q1 of 2024 Intersect has more than seven major Continuity contracts to deliver over 30 new functionalities and features to the blockchain. Continuity only focusses and builds the base infrastructure, there are many more community projects, dApps and initiatives being built on top.
