While this does not justify the price action on ADA, it indeed reaffirms the community’s belief who are looking forward to the Ouroboros-BFT upgrade where Cardano would necessarily implement PoS and would have increased the degree of decentralization of Cardano (ADA token) considerably.
“Today we release Cardano 1.5 on the Cardano mainnet. The Cardano 1.5 release is a milestone because it is the last major Cardano release of the Byron development phase, which we have been in since the launch of mainnet.”
“Cardano 1.5 is important in preparation for moving to the Shelley development phase,” the post added.
The rise has shown similar characteristics to the surge in price before the Ethereum’s Constantinople update. During the month of the update, the price gained almost 60%. Nevertheless, there is a long road ahead for both the projects before their final updates are out. Hence, the price action seems to be solely driven by investor confidence.
