    Cardano has been one of the top performing cryptocurrencies over the past 24 hours, rallying 10% against its USD trading pair and 8% against Bitcoin. The surge in price has seen a test of the critical $0.10 level of resistance, which is not only a psychological level but also a technical level dating back to April. In light of a resurgence in the cryptocurrency markets, Cardano made a 152% move to the upside from March 1 to April 1. It then suffered a 41% correction after touching the $0.10 mark.

    Why Cardano’s news about its Shelley phase is important for decentralisation

    2019 has been an exciting year for Cardano, which made another significant step towards decentralisation with the Shelley Project. The recent Cardano news about the Shelley roadmap is a promise of a more robust blockchain run by community governance. Shelley could turn the Cardano blockchain into a fully decentralised network by implementing staking pools. This roadmap enables ADA holders to delegate their stake when they can’t run an active node. At the same time, under Shelley, the network offers extra benefits to the users who actively participate in the PoS (Proof of Stake) consensus protocol. The latest Cardano news about the Shelly phase isn’t going to happen overnight, however. The rollout will happen gradually, as the network implements its Ouroboros The post Why Cardano’s news about its Shelley phase is important for decentralisation appeared first on Coin Rivet.
