The Candano Solution began, as most things do, very humbly. It started as a meet up with only two enthusiasts in a coffee shop who believed that the Cardano blockchain could fundamentally change the world.
From there, it has grown, in a very short time, to a network of community members that encompass more than 1,100 people. Some of the gatherings have been small: that first coffee shop; some have been large: a gathering at The Wharf Miami for a meet and greet with Charles Hoskinson. All of these community events have inspired action somewhere, from larger conferences, to the metamorphosis of the meet-up into a full blown community center.
At its core, The Cardano Solution remains a network of passionate individuals who believe that the way blockchain technology changes the world, begins with how Cardano can create positive change in the communities in which we live.
Proudly helping to grow the Cardano ecosystem in South Florida!
For our local community members, we offer a unique and diverse network of individuals engaged in how the Cardano blockchain can be utilized to empower individuals to solve local problems and turn roadblocks into opportunities. The Cardano Solution provides exclusive social, educational, and networking events for its members with an open and inviting atmosphere. Whether it is hosting classes or other educational content, meeting other individuals excited about Cardano, or providing access to Cardano subject matter experts on the entire Cardano ecosystem, there is something here for everyone.
For local businesses, we can provide knowledgeable business development guidance on the Cardano blockchain, assisting businesses who want to leverage global blockchain technology. We can aid businesses in preparing their project funding proposal to Project Catalyst for consideration, or introduce and showcase their Cardano project to the community at large.
For the Cardano ecosystem, we seek to evangelize the Cardano blockchain, increasing adoption of Cardano-based solutions in our local community. Through our continued efforts advocating for Cardano-based solutions and projects that create positive change in our communities we advance the use and utility of the ecosystem, modeling what we mean when we say “Change the world for good.”
We’re the place to be for all things Cardano in South Florida, come hang out with us and meet entrepreneurs and like-minded people on a mission to change the world!

He not only works as a blockchain and crypto analyst, but has also been a stake pool and relay operator which gave him a strong appreciation for the challenges facing those involved in securing the blockchain.
Hassan grew the original South Florida Cardano Meet-up group from two people to well over a thousand. He was able to do this by being able to boil down complex technical details into simple concepts that non-technical audiences can understand. This passion for educating and advancing the Cardano ecosystem made him a natural fit for the Cardano Ambassador program.
Don’t worry she is a little bit shy, but you will know her better soon.
