Co-founder And CEO of Cardano Expects A Hard Fork In Mid-Feb

Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder, and CEO of IOHK, the blockchain firm behind Cardano (ADA) expects the coin for a hard fork in the mid of February

On Jan. 17 Hoskinson mentioned in a livestream that Cardano’s consensus algorithm is to be upgraded with a hard fork with the Ouroboros Bizantine Fault-Tolerant Consensus Protocol (OBFT) next month:

“Looks like February — at pretty high certainty — we’re going to have the OBFT hard fork occur. We’re still talking to our exchange partners about that and we just want to make sure all the infrastructure is lined up for it, but infrastructure looks pretty good, so mid-February we anticipate an OBFT hard fork.”

Ledger Hardware Will Be Integrated With Daedalus Cardano Wallet Software

Hoskinson added in the livestream that Ledger hardware wallet will be integrated with Daedalus Cardano wallet software, and is almost ready for deployment.

Last month a new Cardano test network was launched and, within 24 hours, ADA holders staked more than 5 billion coins (worth about $195 million at the time), showing considerable holder participation in the network’s activity.
