Cardano is the only source of any Cardano news

The news outlets who published the fake news referred to "Cardano (ADA) Inc." The Cardano Foundation assured the community that this organization does not exist and has never existed in the past. If it does exist though, the blog post says, it has no connection whatsoever to the Cardano Foundation or the Cardano DLT platform.

It also emphasized that any news about Cardano is valid only if it comes from the Cardano Foundation itself, or its affiliated entities EMURGO or IOHK.

Cardano (ADA) Inc has no permission to use Cardano’s intellectual property or its trademarks, the article says.

The Cardano Foundation has asked the community to share its statement as widely as possible and said it would watch the situation as it unfolds.
