The development of Cardano has taken a major step in recent months: smart contracts arrived on the mainnet in mid-September. In addition, the project announced that it will integrate the oracles of Chainlink (LINK) the same month.
According to Charles Hoskinson, the co-creator of Cardano, the priority is now given to improvements in terms of scalability. The second-layer network solution, dubbed Hydra, is considered “a high business priority” because it will enable a higher volume of transactions to be processed.

The unconvincing ADA price in October
Although the network continues to grow, “Uptober” was not a smile for everyone. While Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Binance’s BNB and Solana’s SOL all posted gains of around + 30% on the month, Cardano’s ADA fell.
Cardano’s native cryptocurrency loses -10% over the last thirty days. This has caused it to fall back in the ranking of the most capitalized cryptos. It is currently located in 6th place, behind the SOL.
The latest communications surrounding the project, however, appear to have had an effect on the price of the ADA, which jumped + 6.8% early this morning:

However, the scale is reduced for now, so it remains to be seen whether the ADA will be able to stand up to its immediate competitors.
