Having discovered the Cardano Lakes image above online, Sustainable ADA went on a mission to find the creator, and to see if we could speak with the artist behind this dreamy vision!
The artwork of the Cardano Lakes NFT was created by Jan Drenovec, and he decided no better way to make it a part of history than to mint it as an NFT for Sustainable ADA to be the one and only holders!

What are NFT’s:
A NFT is a Non-Fungible Token. Non-fungible means it can not be easily changed or replaced. NFTs are digital assets and each is unique and has a separate signature or id. With NFTs you hold these tokens on the blockchain, and you don't hold a physical copy of the asset.
Jan’s Mission for Cardano Lakes:
“My mission was to represent as many aspects of Cardano in a single illustration. I tried to illustrate different emerging markets being connected by connecting them through the network (stake pools), while giving the opportunity to everyone. On top of the illustration are also represented 5 planets, which symbolize 5 different eras.”
Why Create Cardano Lakes?
“I have been following the cryptocurrency space for over three years now, and Cardano along with Charles Hoskinson really inspired me to contribute some of my time and help promote the Cardano Ecosystem.”
Why Jan chose Cardano?
“Best of all worlds. It is super easy to use and I really value the academic approach to research and development.”
Cardano is the sustainable blockchain, and Jan hopes that his artwork will help introduce more people to the Cardano community and more people to sustainable development.
Cardano's connection to sustainable development, is one of the biggest reasons why he chose to depict this ecosystem.
