In total, large investors have added 196 million ADA ($155,5 million at the exchange rate on May 3) to their wallets. According to analysts, this was preceded by a 7-month period of holders dumping the asset.


What did the network’s founders say? Cardano Input Output, the founding company, has announced a new upgrade that increases the block size by 9%, from 80 KB to 88 KB. As well as increasing the network’s throughput, the upgrade will improve the performance of decentralized blockchain-based applications.

What events happened before? In the first quarter of 2022, the volume of transfers on the Cardano network increased dramatically. IntoTheBlock analysts believe this may indicate a massive purchase of ADA tokens by institutional investors. In 2022, the number of transactions over $100 000 increased by 50 times.

In mid-April, the number of large ADA token holders reached a 2-year high. Large investors, with wallet balances of at least 10 million ADA, owned 46,6% of the total number of tokens.
