Cardano (ADA/USD) saw a massive price increase earlier this year after a series of updates that introduced smart contracts to its ecosystem, opening the doors to creating dApps, DeFi projects, and using smart contracts in various protocols. Now, the Cardano Foundation announced the launch of the Cardano Developer Portal, which will make it easier than ever to build on Cardano with brand new tools, content, and resources.

To celebrate, we minted the world's first NFTA on the Cardano blockchain.
Building on Cardano is now easier with brand new content and resources.
Get in and make the portal yours too!#Cardano #CardanoCommunityhttps://t.co/BHrFZAvrtX pic.twitter.com/rxyn1Ugr7n
What does Cardano Developer Portal have to offer?
The Cardano Foundation published a series of tweets yesterday, describing all the different things that users can now do on the new Developer Portal. First things first — the project has prepared a Get Started page, which will explain everything to new users, from what Cardano is all about, to the different components that it contains, different tools for building, technical concepts in its ecosystem, and more. Best of all, it also offers the opportunity to join the project’s ever-growing developer community.
Next, the new Portal also offers the ability to explore Cardano Wallets and learn how to easily integrate them into applications and websites, for anyone who might want to add support for it and make their own business closer to the Cardano project.
In addition to that, Cardano Developer Portal also offers users the opportunity to operate a Stake Pool and learn all there is about becoming an operator from both, marketing and technical perspective. The project also offers educational materials regarding the native tokens, including what they are, how they can be minted, or ways to create NFTs. More importantly, it explains why all of this can be done without having to use smart contracts at all.
Nearing the end, Cardano also introduced the ability for people to fund their own projects if they decide to build on Cardano’s network. And, lastly, Cardano also introduced the ability to build with transaction metadata, with a special, dedicated page that explains what transaction metadata is, how it can be added to a transaction, views it, as well as all the things it can be used for.
