Cardano (ADA) continues to gain prominence across the world with steady development within the ecosystem. Input Out Global (IOG), the team of developers behind Cardano, has been working hard to bring real-world applications to the blockchain project.
Data provided by Google Trends, which analyzes the popularity of queries on Google search results, show that there has been an increased interest in “Cardano news” over the past couple of months.
According to the data, interest in Cardano news started surging in January. It later hit a peak on 14th March 2021.
Google Trends also revealed that the country with the most interest in Cardano (ADA) is the Netherlands, followed by Ireland and Australia.
How Cardano (ADA) Steadily Gained Its Popularity
Cardano (ADA), the fifth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, started gaining traction when the community was preparing for the widely publicized Mary protocol upgrade, which transformed Cardano into a multi-asset blockchain.
This led to a huge price appreciation that took ADA beyond $1, making it a cryptocurrency to watch for many crypto newbies and members of the crypto community.
Cardano’s vision/mission in Africa has also been contributing vastly to the increased interest in the blockchain project and its native token ADA.
A couple of days ago, IOG confirmed a partnership with Ethiopia’s Ministry of Education to create a blockchain-based national ID and attainment recording system.
The report clearly stated that the partnership will bring about the largest blockchain deployment in the world, due to the fact that it will involve over 5 million students and 750,000 teachers.
A few days later, IOG announced another partnership with World Mobile to build a new mobile network in Tanzania, which will serve thousands of people in the region.
These and other factors have been aiding the popularity of Cardano (ADA) across the world, impacting its price to new all-time highs in the process.
