ADA/USD price analysis: Bulls in the driver seat as Cardano welcomes Shelley testnet

  • ADA/USD nears the $0.1 territory following four straight bullish days.
  • Shelley testnet allows users and developers to play around with staking.

Cardano, the brainchild of Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson, released the much-awaited Shelley testnet. The testnet will allow users and developers to play around with staking and staking pools. It is hoped that it will help the company to prepare for the transference of blockchain governance from IOHK (the company behind Cardano) to the community.

The testnet will be rolled out in three different phases:

  • Phase 1: Enable users to host a Rust self node and establish a basic stake pool configuration.
  • Phase 2: Connection of various nodes into a “single unified testnet.”
  • Phase 3: Initiation of delegation and incentives scheme.
