Cardano attracts increased attention from cryptocurrency traders again: in the last 24 hours, ADA accounted for about 5% of the total trading volume. For one day, the ADA rose more than 22% compared to the peak and by 75% for the week.

Let’s find out the possible reasons for this growth.

Binance and list Cardano

The reason for this was the listing of Cardano on major exchanges. Yesterday, the addition of ADA was announced by, and today it was joined by Binance, where Cardano is the third largest in the volume of trading in cryptocurrency and goes right after Verge.

In the coming days it will become clear what inflow of USDT should be expected in the Cardano market, as Binance is one of the largest holders of USDT, and its reserves are sufficient for distribution outside the bitcoin market.

Even more interesting is that the growth occurs against the backdrop of increased trading volumes, which have not been outstanding for several weeks.

Cardano partners with Emurgo 

The growth of the ADA course could have been facilitated by the announcement of an agreement with the Emurgo project.

Emurgo is venture capital company who provides entrepreneurs and businesses with the resources to realize their ideas on the Cardano Blockchain. Its core mission is to develop, support, and incubate commercial ventures and help integrate these businesses into Cardano’s (ADA) decentralized blockchain ecosystem.

Upcoming release of Cardano 1.2

In addition, the interest of enthusiasts is partly fueled by the upcoming release of the Cardano software version 1.2. Earlier, the project head Charles Hoskinson wrote that the new version will be released in mid-April after improving performance and eliminating bugs.

IOHK to Unveil Hydra - Cardano Scalling Protocol

Hydra off-chain protocol allows to implement a number of new features, including micropayments and insurance contracts

The developer of the Cardano blockchain project, IOHK, announced Wednesday the release of the Ouroboros Hydra off-chain protocol. It is expected to scale the blockchain while maintaining low latency and minimal data storage requirements for nodes.

Hydra allows to implement a number of new features, including micropayments and insurance contracts. Preparations for today's release have been ongoing for five years.

Hydra is one of the key elements of the IOHK plan for creating a highly scalable blockchain. It is described as a second-level scaling solution based on the existing Cardano blockchain. Hydra provides horizontal scalability, not vertical scalability, which is achieved by improving hardware. It is assumed that this approach is the maximum possible compromise between scaling, speed, geographical distribution of participants and their number.

With the connection of each new user, Hydra receives 10 additional “goals” or channels for transferring data and transactions. Each such "head" can process about 1,000 transactions per second. In the future, it is planned to further optimize the process. In theory, this will allow you to reach a bandwidth that exceeds the performance of existing global payment systems, such as Visa.

Our Ouroboros Hydra solution is the result of a colossal international research effort, spanning five years, that aimed to solve the security and scalability problems affecting blockchain. Once implemented, it will allow the Cardano blockchain platform to scale to process more transactions than any other blockchain or traditional payment system. IOHK’s Ouroboros whitepaper is a capstone of our team’s research and has been cited more than 1000 times. It forms an essential part of Cardano’s ultimate goal of creating a blockchain based global financial and social operating system.
