It is no secret that Cardano is the network with the most active advancements at any one time. This has now migrated to the decentralized finance (DeFi) side of things, where developers are flocking to the network. As a result, the amount of transactions on the blockchain has increased significantly. The majority of this is being inspired by all of the development that is taking place, which is wonderful news for investors.
Cardano Volume Increases
Cardano is a well-known decentralized finance (DeFi) platform in the cryptocurrency market. However, because it entered the game late, it is now playing catch-up with the rest of the established DeFi competitors, introducing smart contract capabilities in September 2021. However, this hasn’t stopped developers and investors from flocking to take advantage of the unique potential afforded by the Cardano network.
Transaction volume has increased dramatically as development has ramped up, notably as the Vasil hard fork, which is set to go live soon. Cardano is now ahead of prominent players such as Avalanche and TRON. For a long time, these smart contract platforms have been competing for the largest volume. However, Cardano has surpassed the majority of its opponents.
Its volume places it third on the list of smart contract networks with the highest volume. It is just second to big heavyweights Ethereum and Solana, whose volumes continue to rise because of investor interest.
Project Development Expands
Cardano has also experienced an increase in the number of projects being developed on the network. This is because the platform is still primarily community-owned, and with fast, cheap transactions, it is the best alternative for developers and investors seeking to avoid the exorbitant network costs levied by Ethereum.
On Monday, IOG, the Cardano developer, came to Twitter to celebrate the fact that over 1,000 projects are currently being built on the Cardano ecosystem. At the time of the tweet, the precise figure was 1,003 projects from various niches in the decentralized finance (DeFi) field. NFT collections, on the other hand, constituted the majority of these projects, accounting for 40.4 % of all projects built (NFTs).
This surge demonstrates that interest in the Cardano network is high, despite the fact that the price of its native coin, ADA, remains low. With so many projects being established, it is believed that there would be an influx of new money into the network. As a result, the price of ADA will rise over time.
