SundaeSwap – A Cardano-Based DEX – To Launch Testnet 

Cardano-based decentralized exchange SundaeSwap has announced that its testnet launch will take place on December 5. Thousands of users will be able to try out one of the most notable projects on the Cardano network. 

The testnet aims to discover bugs and inefficiencies before the mainnet launch. It will also help the Input-Output team to adjust the performance metrics of the network so that it can work smoothly under heavy load:

"Our testnet is the perfect opportunity to put the new parameters under load so they can assess performance and further raise these limits."

Implementing such incremental changes will be crucial for making Cardano scalable enough for the decentralized finance sector. 

US SEC Chair Gary Gensler recently said that new technologies do not persist if they fail to comply with the law. While Gensler believes that decentralized finance could be the source of innovation, he claims that it has to fall within the existing regulatory framework:

"The innovation around DeFi could be real, but they won't persist if they stay outside of the regulatory framework."

Gensler also voiced his concerns about the centralization of some DeFi projects and implied that the goal of such projects might be to skirt existing anti-money laundering laws.

Speaking of the regulator's reluctance to approve a spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund, Gensler said that trading around the globe is not inside the US regulatory register. He urged the trading and lending platform to "come in and talk."

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA has surged during the ongoing session, with buyers in complete control. If the current sentiment persists, we can expect ADA to push towards the 2-day SMA at $1.77.
