As noted by an ADA whale, Bitcoin dominance has fallen from 52% to 42%, while Cardano dominance has declined from 4% to 2% in the past year.

The Cardano user believes regulation might be a gamechanger for the cryptocurrency market. Regulation continues to be among the most discussed topics in the crypto industry.
As previously covered by U.Today, European Parliament's plan to clamp down on self-hosted wallets became a reality as the EU Parliament voted to ban anonymity in crypto. The draft of the amendment, however, does not specify any lower limit for crypto transfers, meaning that all of them will be subject to identity checks.

Cardano network continues to grow despite price action
The Cardano network recently reached a new milestone of over five million addresses functioning on the network with a year-to-date increase of 48%. The strong increase in the number of users correlates with the rising number of dApps and solutions on the network, showing the fundamental growth of the network.
Back in March 2021, the number of addresses on the Cardano network totaled around 2.6 million. At the time of publication, ADA traded down 3% at $1.05. At its present price, ADA remains down nearly 66% from its all-time high of near $3.
