A few days back, Hoskinson released a blog post where he talked about upcoming upgrades inclusive of redesigning the Cardano’s architecture and one of the most anticipated releases, Shelley. Shelley is a “massive project with many workstreams and scientific dependencies” that would help in making the network more decentralized by turning over the network fully to the users.
Altcoins on rise, cardano amongst the top gainers
For the past couple of weeks, the cryptocurrency market has been experiencing a lot of red with bitcoin’s price dropping down to about $6,500 level. However, recently bitcoin made a return and the entire crypto market got to see some good surges.
Right now, Cardano is among the top altcoin gainers across the major exchanges. Though the number of other altcoins like ethereum, stellar, IOTA, and NEO among others is also rising, comparatively at a much less pace.
Just like other altcoins, Cardano has its share of controversies as Hoskinson posted about the Ouroboros algorithm of Cardano and took a jab at other coins:
“To be clear, Ouroboros isn’t forced, delegated, the proof-of-stake protocol like EOS or Bitshares.”
With the altcoins making a recovery, traders are now looking for the best picks to make short-term profits which will likely to help Cardano even more.
