Cardano started the year on a stellar note thanks in part to the active developmental work being done by the developers. In the weekly update, a major update on the Hydra Protocol was also shared that featured the completion of work on a different way of dealing with contests during the contestation period.
According to the terms of the update, the new way discovered will always push the deadline out, making contestation periods easier to pick depending on the network a head runs on.
Gearing up for new run
Cardano has thus far prided itself in its ability to create new momentum for itself irrespective of the trend on the market. The developers will be counting on how well they started this month as a way to fire up and hit even more impressive milestones this week.
Cardano is changing hands at a price of $0.3637, up by a meager 0.78% in the past 24 hours. The digital currency is down by more than 10% over the past week as the market experienced a rout over the weekend. When the Hydra scaling feature is finally launched, it will position Cardano as arguably the most scalable network, with a positive effect on ADA in the long term.
