- Cardano has recently launched the Shelley hard fork.
- The network currently has over 600 active stake pools.
- Users can now delegate their ADA to pools to earn rewards.
Cardano successfully launched the Shelley hard fork a few days back and it currently has >620 active stake pools. These pools have a total of 2.74 billion ADA committed to staking. According to an official press release, users can now register as stake pool operators or delegate their ADA to pools to earn rewards.
As the number of registered stake pools increases, the Cardano blockchain will become progressively more decentralized. Once the Cardano mainnet has reached 1,000 pools, Cardano will become one of the most decentralized, scalable, and secure blockchains to date.
Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK, took to Twitter to share a screenshot from “Cardano PoolTool.”
The recent hard fork has pivoted Cardano away from the Byron network, which Cardano had claimed would bring the platform closer to the deployment of decentralized applications and smart contract capabilities.
