Following the small bullish rally in Cardano’s (ADA) price at the beginning of the week, ADA’s price slumped slightly in the last 24 hours. Nonetheless, there is a lot going on with the Cardano project that investors can be excited about.

Firstly, there is the long-awaited June Vasil hard fork coming up that will see a change in reference scripts. This means it will no longer constantly have to be reloaded but instead will be pointed to on-chain. There will also be improvements such as reference inputs, inline datums, core interpreter speed increases, diffusion pipelining, and collateral.
The P2P and Gossip protocols are also coming soon. Once implemented, new nodes and end-users will discover nodes without the need for relays. This will make the network entirely organic and self-regulated.
Cardano will also release its own decentralized algorithmic stablecoin called DJED. The stablecoin is developed by IOG and will be issued by COTI.
Isomorphic State Channels called ‘Hydra’ is another throughput enhancement coming to the network. They will minimize network latency and basically provide an efficient way to process transactions off-chain.
Input endorsers will also be added to the network. These endorsers will exponentially increase the network’s throughput by allowing transactions to be separated into pre-constructed blocks. Another thing to note is the growing number of Dapps being built on the ADA blockchain. In summary, these will drastically increase the throughput of Cardano.
There are many more upgrades coming to the Cardano network in the coming months. A few of these include Orbis, the first ZK Rollup L2 Solution for Cardano; and Ouroboros Genesis, a next-generation consensus protocol.
