Number Of Cardano Wallets Staking ADA Crosses 1 Million

0 2

Cardano has now crossed the 1 million staking wallets milestone. The project has been one of the most promising in the space and has garnered a cult-like following since it debuted in 2017. The altcoin held the number one spot for the network with the highest amount of coins staked until recently when Solana took over that title. Nevertheless, it has held its own in the market.

Breaking A New Record

On Sunday, December 5th, crypto investor Jesse Blount took to Twitter to congratulate Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, on its latest milestone. In the tweet, Blount included a picture that showed that the number of delegators on the Cardano network had crossed one million.

Staking on the network had ramped up following the release of smart contracts capabilities on the blockchain. Developers had finally been able to release DApps on the network and the projects which launched on the blockchain enjoyed tremendous success due to the anticipation. What followed was a rapid increase in the number of users that were staking their ADA on the network.

The image posted by Blount showed that there were a little over 1 million wallets staking on the network across 3,108 staking pools. A total of 33,085,775,493 ADA were staked on the network at the time of the post, representing 72% of the total ADA circulating supply staked. It remains one of the largest proof-of-stake blockchains.

First DEX Coming To Cardano

The launch of DEXs on the Cardano blockchain has been one of the major reasons behind the increased activity on the network. As users move towards other blockchains from the high fees of the Ethereum network, Cardano has begun absorbing this user base.

SundaeSwap is set to be the first DEX to launch on the Cardano network. According to a post on IOHK’s official Twitter, the DEX was set to launch on the Cardano testnet. The developer anticipates high usage and transaction, hence the reason for the partnership is to ensure it runs smoothly.

This launch signals the official launch of DeFi on Cardano. The DEX will first go through the testnet to see how it performs under high throughput. The community was too to expect bugs in the DEX, but to also keep in mind that it is still in the early stages. As DeFi makes its home on Cardano, there will definitely be some kinks to straighten out before it is working perfectly.
