The market seems to be gradually edging into the bull territory, as coins like Cardano (ADA) gibber for a possible price pump with transformative upgrade while the kinds of Binance Coin and Litecoin are already making hay while the sun shines.
An update by the Cardano foundation today declared that the Cardano 1.5 Testnet has been launched into the ecosystem of the blockchain technology and it is sure a crucial milestone since it is the most recent release of the Byron development phase.
The blockchain foundation noted that the introduction of Cardano 1.5 comes with a new consensus protocol, Ouroboros BFT, and this plays a major role in transiting from Ouroboros Classic (Cardano existing to protocol) to Ouroboros Genesis, the protocol for the Shelley era.
With Ouroboros Genesis proof-of-stake protocol, Cardano guarantees high security matching Bitcoin’s proof-of-work protocols.
While this is serves as a ground breaking development for Cardano blockchain technology, the imminent Shelly release is yet another pioneering development.
The complete decentralization objective which Cardano intends introducing with the Shelley release will bring more interest from the users of the blockchain technology as reward for stacking their ADA token also comes in place.
However, the development can be regarded as a timely life saver, and observers are optimistic that Cardano (ADA) would witness price pump before the end of Q1 2019. Thus a possible 60% rise could be experienced due to adoption rocket.
Additional developments that come along with the Cardano 1.5 release includes; “performance improvements when rendering lists with a large number of transactions and wallet addresses, the addition of features for detecting insufficient disk space, and a new screen that visualizes the block storage consolidation process.”
The update enjoined users of the blockchain technology to upgrade to 1.5 so that a detailed transition test would be made team by before initiating the Cardano 1.5 release on the mainnet.
Cryptocurrency exchanges are similarly encouraged to make use of the testnet release in examining their integration with the v1 API since the deprecated v0 wallet API release on Cardano 1.4 is no more in existence.
