🎊 A Message from Lucas 🎊

Hey, I got something really special to announce today. We started selling Cardano Merch! After attending so many crypto events, I noticed the huge need for Cardano merch that people would actually use outside their house. Wearing merch is actually a simple but effective way of supporting the ecosystem and onboard a few extra users over time.

Special Edition Hoodies Cardano News

That is why we decided it's time to venture into this. We are making a small test of 10 Cardano hoodies, we might release more as we see demand for it, I pretty much wear these at every Cardano event I go to, people at events overuse air conditioners. This is only the start, and we will soon expand to other products. The Store is NOW LIVE!! There are only 10 Hoodies left, run and get yours!!! 1st come, 1st serve!
