AMBASSADOR STATUS

An Ambassadorship opens doors to the global Cardano community. Ambassadors are vital in increasing Cardano’s awareness; to explain what the project is all about to a worldwide audience and provide insights into specific aspects of Cardano.

Ambassadors are key contributors to the project with direct access to the teams building Cardano.

An Ambassadorship grants the following privileges:

  • Get rewarded for your contribution;
  • Direct lines to the Cardano Foundation, EMURGO and IOHK through dedicated invite-only Ambassador Slack channel;
  • Exclusive invitations to closed events, software previews and calls with our high-performing teams ahead of general public releases;
  • Distinctive Ambassador profile badge on the Cardano Forum;
  • Cardano-branded event swag to give out at your own offline events;
  • Gain valuable experience within the blockchain industry and behind-the-scenes access to the Project;
  • Greater involvement in decision-making processes by providing direct feedback to relevant Project officials.

There are four roles for a Cardano Ambassador:
