One such feature is the inclusion of light peer sharing feature, which allows the inclusion of inbound peers into the outbound governor’s known peers. This functionality aims to expand network participation and enhance decentralization. The experimental peer-sharing feature will be enabled after the completion of the Genesis implementation.
Speaking of Genesis, this upcoming release holds great significance. It will enable participants to safely join the network without the need to rely on selected peers for an accurate snapshot of the blockchain state. This will enhance security and accessibility on the network.
Significant progress has been made on the UTXO HD feature as well, with the merger of the prototype branch and the latest ouroboros-consensus main branch. This integration, connected to cardano-node 8.1.1-pre, includes the recently released mempool fairness fix.
Unfortunately, these developments were not enough to propel Cardano’s DeFi sector.
Looking at the DeFi angle
At press time, Cardano’s TVL declined materially. Additionally, decentralized exchange (DEX) volumes on the network fell as well, potentially reflecting the overall market conditions.
However, the progress of DEXes such as SundaeSwap could turn things around for Cardano.

Realistic or not, here’s ADA’s market cap in BTC’s terms
How did ADA fare?
ADA has yet to recover from the impact of the SEC lawsuit. It has continued to trade below its monthly high, sitting at $0.262 at press time, with both its volume and price experiencing a significant decline.
Interestingly, despite the decline in price, the number of addresses holding ADA had increased. This possibly hinted at the growing retail interest in ADA and a potential base of long-term supporters.
