However, the eighth largest cryptocurrency by market cap has now witnessed two breakthroughs before the upgrade. The currency has also registered a surge of 1.90% over the last 24hrs and is trading at $0.511.
Cardano Wallets & Smart Contracts See A Surge
Along with the price surge, the Cardano wallets and the number of smart contracts positioned on the Cardano platform are also on a positive note.
The Cardano Blockchain Insights data reveals that there is an inclusion of 3,105 Plutus-based smart contracts on the system. In fact, there has been a surge of 2,900 since July.
