As Cardano gets ready to shift from the Byron to Shelley era with the scheduled hard fork, there is no interruption of service expected. On July 29, Cardano (ADA) will migrate from the Byron to the Shelley era.
The team said that no interruptions to the Blockchain’s usual operations are anticipated. They said:
“This is the moment when Shelley ‘comes alive’ on mainnet, introducing features such as stake pools, delegation, and rewards, opening up a new era of decentralization for Cardano.”
Charles Hoskinson, Cardano founder, is highly optimistic about the platform’s future, he now expects to see thousands of DApps (decentralized applications) and many other projects residing on the new mainnet a year from now.
A Continuation Of The Blissful Romantic Era
The move from Byron to Shelley appears to be proceeding according to plan with no major deviations expected. Now, the market appears to approve of the project’s process as the ADA price has surged exponentially in the last several months.
Percy Shelley and Lord Byron, the great romantic poets for which Cardano’s mainnet iterations are named, had a complicated relationship. Byron is known to have outlived his rival by two years. Shelley and Byron in the Cardano world will rarely shake hands before never meeting again if all goes as expected.
The hard fork is happening barely two days before Ethereum’s (ETH) fifth birthday; another project co-founded by Hoskinson. There has existed a lot of unease historically between the two projects and their ingenious creators.
