As a report has it, there has been a huge increase in developer interest as the Cardano ecosystem gets ready to welcome smart contracts.
This new development was shared a few hours ago by Tim Harrison, the Marketing & Communications Director at Input Output Global (IOG), via his official Twitter handle.
According to Harrison, due to this spike in developer interest, IOG, the firm behind the development of Cardano (ADA), has decided to build a new dedicated team that will help serve the fast-growing community.
Tim Harrison tweeted, “WE’RE HIRING! As we draw ever closer to rolling out Smart Contracts on Cardano, we’re seeing a HUGE spike in developer interest. Exciting times. So we’re building a new dedicated team to help properly serve this fast-growing community & help bring them on board.

Charles Hoskinson Sees Ethereum Developers and Users Flocking To Cardano
A few days ago, in an interview on Cardano Chat, the CEO of IOG, Charles Hoskinson, stated that Ethereum developers and users will flock to Cardano in numbers to leverage the considerably lower transaction fees on the network.
Hoskinson also said that the emerging smart contract platform will host billions of dollars worth of products, which will prompt many Ethereum developers and users to port to Cardano.
According to the Cardano creator, once smart contracts implementation plays out on the Cardano blockchain as scheduled, the network will mature into a global infrastructure for peer-to-peer (P2P) lending that could help millions of unbanked people to gain access to the financial market.
Charles Hoskinson noted:
“That one thing alone, if we can solve it, will result in tens of billions, if not hundreds of billions of dollars leaving the developing world and enriching the lives of millions, if not tens of millions of people…
What I’m going to start doing, above and beyond making Cardano more competitive… is really start getting serious about things like peer-to-peer lending, and reputation and identity and insurance and payments and so forth, because if I do that I’m going to change the lives of a billion people.”
Speaking about Ethereum developers and users flocking to Cardano, Hoskinson said:
None of these protocols are loyal to Ethereum, they’re just there because they have a first-mover advantage, but the minute that the infrastructure wakes up a little bit it’s going to be a lot easier to have a mass exodus. And that’s probably what’s going to occur because why else would they want to stay if they have to pay $50 fees or $70 fees?”
