Furthermore, as per IOHK, the Shelley hard fork is expected to take place on 29 July 2020. However, the Shelley-era functionality will take place between 30 June and 7 July 2020.

Speaking about the Shelley-era, the co-founder of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson had stated,

“Looking ahead, the implications of this transition are enormous. Shelley will set the stage for a fully distributed network, and an entirely new application ecosystem with even greater things to come in the Goguen, Basho, and Voltaire eras.”

While the community has been preparing for the Shelley era, an online data curation platform, Santiment revealed that the social volume of ADA had witnessed a paramount spike towards the end of May, specifically during the announcements pertaining to the Shelley testnet.

The price of ADA was also seen surging and even hit a high of $0.0842 on 31 May 2020. In the current market situation, almost every coin is experiencing a skyward trajectory. Some speculate that the nationwide riots in the United States of America are the reason behind it, whereas a few others believe that the correlation of altcoins and Bitcoins could be the case.

As per Coin Metrics, the co-efficient of correlation between ADA and BTC was 0.85. This data further adds weight to the fact that ADA is following Bitcoin’s price movement.
