Mary Hard Fork Has Been Positive

On 3rd February 2021, IOHK, the software company behind one of the fastest-growing projects, Cardano (ADA), announced the rollout of the “Mary” hard fork, which has brought transformation into a multi-asset network and brought the network one step closer to transitioning into the Goguen era.

The process of tokenization is handled natively on the Cardano blockchain without deploying smart contracts. This sets it apart from its major rival Ethereum and its popular ERC-20 token standard.

Apart from the project’s active development, digital asset manager Grayscale registering a series of trusts for Cardano and other altcoins in late January could be yet another catalyst behind the sustained ADA price momentum.
