Weighted average ADA rate, cryptocurrency of the blockchain Cardano, for the last 24 hours increased by 170% to $ 0.146. At the same time, the ADA capitalization has sharply increased. At the moment it is estimated at $ 3.798 billion, and according to this indicator, the cryptocurrency has risen in the Coinmarketcap rating to the 9th place. It displaced the first ten Monero.

Such a rapid growth of the coin is associated with the expectation of the publication of an updated road map of the project. Probably, this will happen before the end of this week. In addition, among the latest news, coinciding with the rapid growth of the ADA, was the addition of the Bittrex Exchange ADA / ETH.

The working version of the blockchain Cardano was launched in October. Earlier, the project, led by Charles Hoskinson from the Hong Kong company IOHK, held several ICOs, having managed to attract more than 100,000 BTC. Significant investment came from Japan, China and South Korea.
