At the time of writing, on 17th January, Cardano priced at US$1.52, its total market cap has been pushed up to over US$50.93 billion, i.e., 2.25% of the total crypto market cap.

Why is there a surge in Cardano’s prices?

ADA, Cardano’s native token, has been marching higher as compared to its peers like Bitcoin and Ethereum, owing to a rise in its investors' confidence.

Further, as the top cryptos, Bitcoin and Ethereum fall prey to the bear market territory, Cardano, currently, the fifth most famous crypto across the world has touched several significant milestones in recent times.

It is pointed out that the crypto has now held in over one million digital wallets globally and has surpassed the 20-million transaction mark with no report of downtime in more than 1,500 days of operation.

As a result of these significant achievements, Cardano admirers are confident of the performance of the crypto in the near future.

Moreover, the successful launch of ADACash has also given upward momentum to ADA’s prices.

Also, upcoming ‘Hydra upgrade’, which is likely to happen later this year, will considerably improve the processing time for transactions on Cardano’s blockchain, thus making it even more popular when talking about smart contracts and decentralised finance.
