IOG has made it a practice to update its community on the developments on Cardano on a weekly basis. This update is coming at the right time as ADA, the mega network's native cryptocurrency, has been on a steady slip following the general market trend.
At the time of writing, ADA is down by 3.59% to $0.3386. This current price slump has eroded the gains the digital currency has garnered over the past month, as seen in the 13.1% slump within that time frame. While not being the only big coin in the red, Cardano's latest update might serve as a much-needed revival to retrace its steps.
According to the report, a total of 70.258 token policies were recorded on Cardano, and the transaction count now tops 62.2 million. Besides these quantitative advancements, Hydra's work scope has been created for mainnet compatibility.
Only impediment in sight
Ideally, the impressive weekly activities and record milestone achievements are enough to help boost the price of Cardano. However, the strong correlation with Bitcoin (BTC) might make this growth indeterminate.
Whenever Bitcoin slumps, the broader market sentiment turns negative, thus driving down the other altcoins. The reverse also holds true, and the influence of the positive activities on Cardano will thus be felt when the Bitcoin bulls are back in action.
Cardano remains a high performance digital currency, and with a good number of protocol updates underway, ADA coin is on track to show more resilience even if market sentiment does not improve in the short term.
