Cardano builder IOG and University of Edinburgh to create first ever index to provide industry standard metric for crypto decentralization

January 22, 2023

The Edinburgh Decentralization Index (EDI) aims to create more transparency by using a research-based methodology to produce a framework that consistently determines the ‘decentralization’ level of public blockchain projects. This review process is designed to account for volatility in the crypto market, while evolving to address innovations within the blockchain industry. Our collaboration with IOG is an excellent example of this and we are proud to be launching this project to create the Edinburgh Decentralization Index. While contributing to the building of the world-leading Cardano blockchain, IOG has created a research library of over 160 academic papers. This accompanies a $4.5m donation by IOG to Edinburgh University, as well as the launch of a Zero Knowledge Lab, which will carry out vital research into the safeguarding of personal information.
