Valentine’s week was eventful!

The report first mentioned the most prominent update, which was the release of the much-awaited Valentine upgrade. With its launch, cross-chain interoperability was fostered with native support for SECP, which also ensures the highest level of security for DApp development.

Apart from the Valentine update, Cardano also mentioned what different teams worked on during the last week. For instance, the Plutus team worked on the Plutus debugger, script capacity increase, and documentation.

On the other hand, the Hydra team completed work on some gaps to bring the Hydra scripts’ implementation in line with the specification, which also improved the size and cost of the scripts. In addition, Cardano also mentioned that the Mithril team released a new 2306.0 distribution that implements minor fixes.

Lastly, the report highlighted updated statistics of the ecosystem, which did not seem to have changed much since the previous week.

Consider this- the total number of native tokens was about to reach 7.8 million, at press time, while the total number of transactions touched 61.4 million.

Decent on-chain performance?

Much like ADA’s performance on the price front, its on-chain metrics also looked pretty optimistic. ADA’s recent price gain was accompanied by an increase in volume.

After a few days of decline, the coin’s MVRV Ratio registered an increase and managed to remain on the upper side.

Moreover, ADA was also in demand in the derivatives market as its Binance funding rate was relatively high.

Thanks to the Valentine upgrade, ADA’s development activity increased during the last week. However, the development activity declined after the upgrade. ADA’s social statistics were also positive as the social volume increased, reflecting its popularity.
