Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, noted that in 2021 over “two million assets” were issued in the ecosystem. Over 127 projects are currently under development, and nearly 30 of these projects will be launched within the next 90 days.
Next year, what’s going to happen is that a formal open-source project structure is going to be formed, kind of like Hyperledger to Linux. We’re going to see many institutions wired in, and all the people that are currently working on it will be novated over, including me.
