Almost 70% of all tokens of the Cardano cryptocurrency project (ADA) are staked, making it the most decentralized blockchain in the world.
According to Staking Rewards, Cardano users have staked over 21 billion coins worth over $ 6 billion. This is 70% of the total amount of ADA in circulation. Thus, the project overtook the permanent leader Polkadot and became the most decentralized blockchain in the world in terms of the aggregate value of the coins placed. In third place is the Ethereum 2.0 project. Beacon Chain now blocks $ 2.34 billion of ETH.

Cardano picks up the pace
Cardano is a blockchain platform created by the Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) development team led by Charles Hoskinson, former co-founder of BitShares, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. The Cardano ecosystem is used to develop and run decentralized applications, including blockchain voting platforms. Earlier, the BeInCrypto editors reported that the SingularityNET AI platform was considering the possibility of using the Ethereum blockchain on Cardano.
Smart contracts, interoperability with other blockchains and management functionality are under development, but the Cardano project is already taking an important place in the cryptocurrency industry. According to the analytical resource Santiment, developers’ activity in the project is rapidly recovering after a drawdown to minimum levels in October 2020. This means that Cardano is actively preparing for the launch of new functionality..
