The exchange announced that no further notice will be released concerning the suspension.

Right now, Cardano is the third-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. The coin has flipped USDT and BNB to move to the third position. The average transaction volume of the coin has also surpassed that of Ethereum.

Furthermore, Cardano is planning to work on several other projects to expand its reach. On Feb 26, the team revealed the integration of Glow, a programming language, on its platform. The initiative will allow developers to add more features to the platform and build more applications.

The upgrade to Cardano’s network will place it ahead in the DeFi space. Without a doubt, ADA will become more desirable as well.
