Cardano growth report
The latest report on the Cardano network noted that 124 crypto projects have been launched in the Cardano smart contract ecosystem and 1225 projects building on Cardano.
It is worth noting that Cardano engineers were working on Hydra, Cardano layer-2 scaling network, to push the Cardano network’s scalability to nearly 1 million TPS. Over the last 6 months, Cardano’s team never talked about Hydra or other layer-2 scaling networks. It seems that they paused or stopped their work on such techs.
In March 2023, in an interview, Cardano’s founder said that the Cardano blockchain achieved high-level adoption in the NFTs sector as a big winner. He also said that in the next 10 years, the countries’ governments will use Cardano & other flagship blockchain networks at a practical level in the financial system.
