Rivals Are Left Behind As Cardano's Construction Progress Soars In February


Throughout February, Input Output Global (IOG), the organization that created Cardano, provided updates on their progress.

One of the highlights of the month was the launch of the Valentine (SECP) upgrade on Feb. 14. This Valentine's Day-themed upgrade, which went live on the mainnet, was created to honor "the love of DApps."

Together with this upgrade, IOG started assisting in the establishment and bootstrapping of ADA working groups. Members of the community will be able to organize and work together on making decisions and putting solutions into action thanks to these groups. This action attempts to increase community involvement in Cardano development.

IOG also accomplished a significant milestone in February with the Feb. 7 introduction of the public testnet for the EVM sidechain proof of concept. With the help of this launch, developers may roll out dApps and smart contracts, link wallets, and test token transfers between test environments.

In response to community interest, IOG published a blog post by Christian Badertscher, one of the coauthors of the paper "Ouroboros Genesis: Composable Proof-of-Stake Blockchains with Dynamic Availability."

The fourth Plutus Pioneer, which occurred on February 20, was also a noteworthy occasion. The IOG Academy presented this curriculum, which included more features and material as well as an easier development setup. A initiative called Plutus Pioneer attempts to assist developers in becoming familiar with Cardano's Plutus smart contract technology.

Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson and other esteemed community members attended a Twitter space organized by the Lace wallet team in February. Community members had the chance to interact with ADA leaders and ask questions about the initiative through the Twitter platform.

IOG and the Cardano community had a successful month in February thanks to the accomplishment of numerous noteworthy milestones and increased involvement with the community.
