Cardano’s successful testnet integration of smart contract functionality and plans to enter the DeFi space back ADA’s 139% rally.

The amount of ADA staked on the network continued to increase throughout January and is now at a record 22.6 billion tokens staked, representing 72% of the total supply. There are currently 1,602 active validators on the network serving 176,696 total delegators.

Once smart contract functionality is brought to Cardano’s mainnet, the platform will be able to host a variety of dApps including decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, a sector that has been one of the main driving forces in the growth of the cryptocurrency sector over the past year.
