Cardano hit 13,000 GitHub commits in June, becomes most developed project in crypto industry
Cardano has become the top project by development activity in the last 30 days, garnering a record-breaking amount of commits on its GitHub page. This comes as some developers are preparing their application for new functions of the upcoming Vasil hard fork, and others are trying to find something to improve directly in Cardano. Additionally, Cardano saw an increase in the number of wallets on the network, with Cardano's network activity also showing signs of increase and the number of transactions hitting 44.8 million in the last month. However, such strong fundamental growth has not helped Cardano’s native asset to perform better on the market. At the moment, ADA is changing hands at $0.45.
Bank of America sees enormous decline in crypto users
Per a recent report of Bank of America, it has seen a more than 50% drop in usage. The banking institution claims that as of May, the number of customers with cryptocurrency exposure declined to less than 500,000 people. For comparison, it reached over a million active cryptocurrency users in November. The most recent data piece emphasizes the industry's deteriorating sentiment, which was brought on by significantly decreasing market prices. According to Bank of America’s David Tinsley, the collapse of the Terra stablecoin precipitated the market correction.
In contrast to some other U.S.-based American banking organizations, Bank of America has not tried its hand at crypto services yet. CEO Brian T. Moynihan explained in a recent interview with Yahoo! Finance that he did not believe the world's largest bank was missing out on "anything."
