While speaking about the likelihood of Cardano’s adoption, Hoskinson stated that his team is currency discussing with the El Salvadoran government and the deal will be confirmed soon. Additionally, he said he will need to visit personally to finalize the agreement.

A plan that transcends beyond Bitcoin adoption

Hoskinson also noted that the plan by El Salvador to digitalize its economy far transcends Bitcoin (BTC/USD) adoption. According to him, the plan is not only about adopting Bitcoin but completely legalizing it, which no other country has done.

If the deal becomes a reality, it will become a massive achievement for Cardano and its crypto asset.

Cardano has been very busy in the market lately

The proof-of-stake blockchain has been very busy lately. Hoskinson earlier announced that the platform is planning to publish a research paper on algorithmic Stablecoins. The announcement coincides with the platform’s growing acceptance and improvement in the community. This has also impacted positively on the price of ADA, its native token.

Cardano also wants to explore the possibility of what it calls ‘Stablefees,’ which will be pegged to a collection of currencies. The platform says it will provide pricing that is predictable and fair.

Cardano is also involved in a partnership deal with the Ethiopian government for the implementation of a blockchain-based student/teacher ID system that will be used to validate grades.
