This positive price movement resulted in Cardano’s market cap rising to almost $14.1 billion, equivalent to 1.19% of the total cryptocurrency market cap. However, Cardano’s market cap had previously reached a high of $94.8 billion during the last bull market.

Cardano and EVM
This feature is made possible by Milkomeda, a network that connects blockchains such as Algorand and Cardano to EVM contracts.
According to Sebastien Guillemot, CEO of Milkomeda, the platform is launching a new feature that allows all Cardano users to use EVM contracts directly from any Cardano wallet.
Cardano will be a top EVM chain next month

In addition, Milkomeda will soon offer staking rewards to all EVM users, including smart contract developers, with rewards paid automatically every five days for Cardano products built on the Milkomeda platform.
Charles Hoskinson on Cardano’s future
According to Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano, nation-states may adopt the smart contract platform in the next 5-10 years.
He believes that Cardano could be used to run a principled national identity system, payment system, or central bank digital currency (CBDC) if anti-cryptocurrency forces do not obstruct its progress.
Hoskinson is confident that the Cardano ecosystem has enough resources to support the growth and adoption of such use cases.
However, he warns that some powerful entities, such as the globalist and ESG movements, are trying to hinder the progress of crypto and decentralization from maintaining their hierarchical power structure.
