Amongst the madness in broader crypto, along with Cardano’s substantial volatility, the Alonzo hard fork update for ADA has sought to provide a solution to maintaining its powerhouse status, and continue to dominate the year.
This solution, though, has some twists and turns that leave the bulls hopeful and patient.
ADA And The Push To The Top
Cardano has had an amazing run this year with the new wave of crypto bulls ready to see what ADA will become. Dubbed the “Ethereum killer,” Cardano and it’s founder Charles Hoskinson seem confident that his team will and project will dominate to become the top dog. With Hoskinson’s recent comments that the DeFi space in Cardano’s ecosystem is currently ‘up for grabs,’ smart contracts with Cardano have finally arrived. He also noted that DeFi is now seeing a second wave, and the winners of this move will feature both interoperability and liquidity, as well as the ability to move multi-chain, all with an easily predictable cost.
“The way we constructed Cardano was for that second wave” – Charles Hoskinson
The founder of Cardano has been one of the main individuals in crypto to express the need for more regulation, governance and much more throughout crypto, and he also understands decentralization is a major necessity. These reasons play a part in why Hoskinson and his team worked on designing Cardano, allowing it to fit and work perfectly with the second wave of DeFi. With the Alonzo hard fork successfully launching, it made a new wave and push for anyone to add smart contracts to the blockchain with ease. How will this impact ADA?

200 Smart Contracts We Will Have To Wait To See
ADA has about 2,300 smart contracts loaded up and ready to go, but within that gang of contracts more than 200 of those won’t see the light of day just yet, according to Cointelegraph. Cardano has some game-changing contracts that remain time locked and unavailable to the public, and many of these very notable projects are not yet ready for the world. However, changing landscapes could come in to play that will change that. One of frozen few is GREED, a rewards token that is redistributing ADA back to holders and providing a new way to distribute and stream both live and recorded music.
This list also includes SingularityNET and Cardax – two notable projects with a lot eyes waiting to see what’s next as time progress. As things unfold and more countries address much-needed regulations to crypto currency, all we can do is sit and see whats next for these projects as we wait to find out who will join the list or make a debut.
