Cardano’s Explosive Ecosystem
Cardano experienced an interesting week as it recorded more than 66.3 million transactions and launched 126 projects on its network. This brings the total number of projects currently in development on the Cardano network to 1,240. Native Tokens also saw 8.24 million tokens, 73,114 token policies and 7962 Plutus scripts recorded this week alone.
Currency Conversion Feature Improvements
The Daedalus team worked to improve the currency conversion feature with a proxy server update. This ensures users have better access to their wallets with features such as a 12- or 15-word recovery phrase, viewing prices of native tokens in 11 fiat currencies and compact number notation for large numbers. Additionally, they can switch between networks more easily if they forget their password and NFTs are displayed correctly in lists and galleries.
