Charles Hoskinson: Cardano’s Alonzo hardfork comibinator event coming by end of August

Published

on

  • Cardano’s Hoskinson has stated that everything seems to be on track as the testing for Node 1.4 will start from next week onwards.
  • The Cardano Alonzo upgrade will also enable smart contract functionality for users.

On Wednesday, August 4, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson updated the Cardano community about the upcoming Alonzo hardfork and the ongoing developments. The developers are getting all the required stuff together for version 1.4 node

Hoskinson noted that the Rosetta APIs and DB sinks are all in place. Starting next week, Cardano will bring together all of the exchange partners offering support and go with live testing. Thus, post the consolidated opinion of all stakeholders, they will come with a final date of Alonzo upgrade.

But tentatively, the Alonzo hard fork combinator event will happen during the last week of August or the first week of September. As per Hoskinson, things look to be going pretty much on track and nothing in sight that could lead to any major delay.

Hoskinson also stated that the first goal is to deploy the infrastructure layer. Later, atop it, the development tooling and new features become a running game.

The Alonzo white hard fork implementation already happened last month that facilitates integration for most DeFi applications. This makes Cardano blockchain, even more, competing with the Ethereum blockchain network. Commenting on the testnet’s results back then, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson said:

Things are looking good, we’ve discovered bugs and integration issues that we would expect to discover along the way. But we’re working through them – we’re following a rigorous process, but things overall are fairly stable.

Allowing users to run smart contracts on Cardano

Last week during his live stream on July 31, Hoskinson confirmed that post the upgrade, smart contracts will be available to the users of the Cardano blockchain. He added:

There are kind of two parallel tracks going on at the same time for the launch of Alonzo, track number one is the hard fork combinator event, strictly about getting Alonzo capabilities to the node the other track is about building the infrastructure around that node that allows you to run both off-chain and on-chain code and build full dApps.

It is clear that Cardano is closing gaps with its biggest competitor in terms of operations. The Cardano founder also added that the sophistication of things built atop Cardano will only get better with time. Now, there are numerous integration partners involved with the upgrade.

Cardano (ADA), XRP Price Could Retest These Levels Before Skyrocketing!

Published

on

  • XRP could possibly hit highs of around $1.2. Extreme sell-offs would plummet XRP below $1.
  • ADA might hit its resistance around $2.4 but could test its support levels before the uptrend.

  The crypto space has been a rough sail for altcoins such as XRP and ADA. However, the coins have managed to withstand strong and gusty winds. Meanwhile, investors and traders are eagerly waiting for a pull-out from the blues.

XRP Price

XRP at press time is trading at $1.09, with negative gains for the last 24-hours at 1.1%. The market cap stands at $51,193,598,011. While the trading volume for the last 24-hours hovers around $3,742,571,734. 

XRP has been moving along the descending triangle. A triple top formation is visible on the charts. The coin has attempted to break through each time and has failed to keep up the momentum. 

The digital asset has been moving along a narrow range. If it breaks out the triangle, we can expect it to reach its resistance at $1.2. On the contrary, XRP would move across the narrow range. However, extreme sell-offs would result in XRP plummeting below $1.

Cardano (ADA)

Cardano, the top-tier altcoin at press time is trading at $2.16 with negative gains at 1.1% for the last 24-hours. While the market cap is at $69,172,092,701. The trading volume for round the clock floats around $1,749,372,395. ADA has not let its foot lose at its level of  $2.0, despite the crash. However, massive sell-offs might result in ADA plunging to its strong support levels. Prior to rebounding to its resistance around $2.4

Collectively, XRP and ADA could propel towards their respective resistance levels in near future. And hopefully, bullish momentum could follow with the commencement of the alt season. Netizens are expecting a massive rally to follow, as it has been due for a brief period of time.

The next higher high of $2.30 was followed by a lower low set during the subsequent retracement, which was below $2.15. As a result, the overall trend for ADA/USD is still unclear.

We may see Cardano’s price recover some of its losses in the coming days. If a lower high is broken, we can anticipate bearish momentum to continue into next week.

Cardano Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Today’s Cardano price is in an upswing, according to most market forecasters. After a big drop, a new lower low was established today. Bearish momentum, on the other hand, has run its course, and we may expect a retracement in the next 24 hours.
