  • The Cardano Development Team is Still Working on Making the Blockchain 100% Decentralized
  • Thanks to the Shelley Hardfork, Users Can Maintain Control of 38% of all the Token Minted
  • The Cardano ADA Token is Still Struggling to Gain Bullish Momentum 

Cardano News Today – In recent times, the Cardano development foundation and all related bodies have put in extra effort toward the decentralization of blockchain. This is why IOHK recently talked about staking and decentralization. In their blog, they noted that the phase known as Epoch 221 will introduce two new features to the Cardano staking process. It will amend the distribution of community governance and staking rewards. Members of the Cardano community will be responsible for 38% of the minted blocks according to IOHK.

Cardano News Today – Stakers Reward on the Way to Validation Wallet

The blog by IOHK stated that a portion of the Staker’s reward is already en-route to the wallet of validators. As long as ADA holders use exchanges that have announced staking compatibility, they should prepare to get their rewards. IOHK urged all stakers to confirm that the exchanges they are registered on are secure. Part of the post was as follows;

“First off, a fresh batch of #ADA rewards will be landing in the wallets of delegators. (If you are still holding your ADA on an exchange, you should have a rethink about that).”

The warning comes just in time as members of the cryptocurrency market are currently trying to recover following the KuCoin attack on the 26th of September that costs people over $250,000,000 in cryptocurrencies. Shortly after it happened, the price of Bitcoin BTC fell dragging the altcoins along. These raised a lot of questions about the true decentralization of cryptocurrencies. IOHK is working with Emurgo and the Cardano Foundation to make the Cardano blockchain truly decentralized and tamper-proof.

IOHK has started that Epoch 221 is a new level of decentralization that will allow ADA stakers to take charge of 38% of all minted blocks. This is all thanks to the successful implementation of the Shelley hardfork.

Cardano ADA Price Prediction – Cardano ADA Continues to Struggle

The token has been bearish despite all the positive developments on the Cardano blockchain. Less than two weeks ago, the Cardano foundation partnered with the United Nations to promote the development of blockchain-based products that will help the UN reach its goals.
