ADA Breaks Free From BTC Due to Mary Upgrade on the Cardano Mainnet

The case of Cardano breaking away from the influence of Bitcoin in the last 30 days can be attributed to the recent Mary Upgrade that was executed on the ADA mainnet on the 1st of March. The hype and excitement surrounding the Cardano upgrade resulted in the price of ADA setting a new all-time high of $1.487 – Binance rate – on the 27th of February and 3 days before the aforementioned upgrade

With the Mary Upgrade, Cardano will now become a multi-asset platform that will allow users to create custom tokens (such as NFTs) that will directly interact with the Cardano blockchain without the use of smart contracts. This in turn means that transactions on the Cardano network will be much cheaper than those of other blockchains such as Ethereum.

Cardano’s 50-day MA is the Support To Watch in March
