Within the Cardano community, we have some very active members. These are people who are recognized as going above and beyond what a normal community member might do, by offering regular, consistent, and positive contributions to the project.
We call these special people the Cardano Ambassadors.
Contributions are recognized by the community in several ways, which are detailed below.
It’s important to note that Ambassador status is something that must be earned. We believe in decentralization, and that a strong community led by those who contribute the most is extremely important.
