The ADA payment launch event was held on June 22nd, during the weekend at the charcoal grilled Tamurai Ryuu Main Store.
“I also love ADA, I have an ADA, and because I am dreaming that the ADA will explode someday,” Japan's first ADA Yakiniku “would be a good opportunity,”
The foundation also did a Tangem card giveaway during the event that further involved the mention of Shelly testnet, the second phase of development for the Cardano project, that was launched on June 21st.
The much-awaited testnet of Shelley will allow users and developers to play around staking and staking pools. The testnet will be rolled out in three phases where the first one is the self node, also called ‘blockchain in a box’ that will enable users to host a Rust self node through various configurations and provide the company feedback.
Phase 2 is connecting the network to create a single, unified testnet and to add more nodes, scaling the network step by step.
In the last phase, a networked incentive system will be added as shelley’s true potential will be realized with staking and involves the initiation of delegation.
Meanwhile, the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap of $2.5 billion is trading at $0.0954 with 24 hours loss of 1.56 percent, at the time of writing. In the last 30 days, however, we surged over 18 percent and are up by 137 percent till date in 2019.
