According to IOHK, this adjustment is part of a planned series of network optimizations:

“Cardano will continue to be constantly optimized in a series of steps that will be released and announced this year. We will carefully and methodically scale the network for future growth as demand increases.”

According to IOHK, the network is designed to safely manage high data loads. Therefore, it needs to be constantly updated and transformed.

“The throughput will constantly improve as we continue to optimize. This latest change will continue to improve the user experience.”

And ADA?

Regarding the ADA price, analyst Rakesh Upadhyay highlighted that the cryptocurrency is struggling to recover from the $1 support. This indicates a lack of urgency among traders to accumulate at current levels.

“If the bulls fail to push and sustain the price above the moving averages in the coming days, the possibility of a breakout below $1 could increase. If that happens, the ADA/USDT pair could resume its downtrend,” he pointed out.

At the time of writing, ADA is trading at $1.13. In the last 7 days, the price of the cryptocurrency has jumped 7,35%.
