A new macro trend has begun for Cardano (ADA) after the network adds the ability to build decentralized applications (DApps) on it and teases “Ouroboros Omega.”
In the ongoing raging bull market, we are experiencing everything going up, which has been going on with the stock market, but in the cryptocurrency market, it is a lot more heightened.

The majority of these top gainers are DeFi tokens, which have been exploding into popularity and value.
Among the top altcoins, Cardano (ADA) is actually turning out to be an outlier for the past few days as its price started uptrending just this month. ADA started the year at around $0.175 and this month at just under $0.340, only to jump above $0.753 in the past 24-hours. ADA 2.07% Cardano / USD ADAUSD $ 1.12

“ADA has confirmed the breakout from its multi-year triangle. After over 670 days of consolidation inside this pattern… A new macro trend has begun,” noted trader Rekt Analyst.
These gains helped the open-source, smart-contract platform become the 4th largest network with a market cap of $22.36 billion, as per Messari, a step above Polkadot (DOT), a blockchain network designed to support various interconnected, application-specific sub-chains called parachains, whose market capitalization is $21.64 billion.

As the price of ADA continues to increase, so does the number of traders for ADA, addresses that have held a crypto-asset for less than 30 days, which reached a multi-year high. In February, this value has increased to over 11.82b ADA, 33.8% of the circulating supply, as per IntoTheBlock.
The network has also been seeing regulator updates with its third phase, “Goguen,” focused on integrating smart contracts into the blockchain, launching in December.
While the Shelley era decentralizes the system, Goguen adds the ability to build decentralized applications (DApps) on Cardano, as per its roadmap.
Amidst all this, Cardano creator Charles Hoskinson, who also co-founded the second largest network Ethereum, announced “Ouroboros Omega.”

“If you think that we are rocking it now, just you wait until we talk about Ouroboros Omega…..” tweeted Hoskinson last week.
