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

Binance and Huobi.pro list Cardano

The reason for this was the listing of Cardano on major exchanges. Yesterday, the addition of ADA was announced by Huobi.pro, 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.
