Over 1 Million Wallets Now Staking ADA

Despite facing consecutive weeks of a price drawdown, Cardano officially hit over 1,000,000 wallets which are currently staking ADA. With more crypto users quickly realizing the perks that come with staking and the dangers of actively trading the volatile industry, most of them are now turning to stake.

Since the launch of smart contracts on the Cardano mainnet on September 12th, the Cardano blockchain has gained a lot of traction. Cardano is also fast carving out an edge for itself as the go-to network with the capabilities to support various types of dApps across various industries, including finance, healthcare, education supply chain management, etc. 

To this end, the Cardano team, led by Charles Hoskinson, has been on various tours across the globe, inking deals that are already seeing Cardano set up for use cases in these industries. In addition to having these features, the most attractive capability by the Cardano blockchain is its proof of stake consensus algorithm. 

PoS enables users to stake or commit their coins to support the blockchain network and confirm transactions in exchange for rewards. With the introduction of “Goguen” during the Alonzo upgrade, a feature that adds the ability to build decentralized applications (DApps) on Cardano’s solid foundation, the POS staking feature has become a key highlight in Cardano’s roadmap, attracting more adopters seeing ADA’s price surge by over 1400% in 2021.

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels 

The Cardano price chart shows us that ADA had been extremely bearish over the weekend, with the price having slipped below $1.30 during the ongoing session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ADA drop to $1.25, where the price has support.
