Bitrue to offer users 7% APR on their ADA

As was detailed in the article, Bitrue will be among the first platforms to support the Shelley upgrade for Cardanolong expected by its users.

This will enable Bitrue to offer its customers seven percent APR (annual percentage rate) in 30-day lockup plans soon enoughfrom mid-August.

Cardano will implement staking after the Shelley launch, according to its roadmap. However, the exchange is already able to offer its customers to stake their ADA at a smaller APR via its own programs.

On Wednesday, July 29, at 12:30 p.m. UTC, when the Cardano upgrade begins to activate, Bitrue will suspend all ADA withdrawals and deposits by its customers.

Cardano Launches Countdown to Conducting Shelley Upgrade Early Next Week

Cardano (ADA) to become completely decentralized

According to a video posted by Cardano’s founder, Charles Hoskinson, on YouTube over the weekend, the upcoming Shelley upgrade is going to make this platform completely decentralized by allowing a lot of operators to govern and maintain the network.

It means that nobody will be able to manipulate or control Cardano and its native currency, ADA. The upgrade will also allow for the emergence of ADA staking pools.

Besides, Hoskinson stated that after the hard fork on Cardano, native assets, smart contracts and other interesting projects will appear based on it.

He also said that after Shelley is implemented and all of these innovations appear on Cardano, it will become the best crypto in the industry.
