Unlike Bitcoin, it relies on the computing power of tens of thousands of computers and PoS blockchains which are secured by people committing a portion of their holdings to the network, and in return, they will receive a share of newly minted coins. Similar to Ethereum, Cardano leveraged smart contracts to enable the development of DEFI applications and NFTs. A few other cryptocurrencies posted some double digit gains on the day as well. The meme coin DOGE is up by 13.9% over the past day and now trades at $0.13 while NEAR as the native cryptocurrency of the Near Protocol is up by 9% and traded at $12.23 at press time.

Cardano exploded 17% while the price dip of yesterday was short-lived and BTC went on the offensive to chart a three-week high above $43,000. most of the altcoins turned green as well with DOGE, SHIB, NEAR, and Cardano all stealing the show. It was less than a week when the primary cryptocurrency dropped to over $40,000 and the community feared that the asset could drop below the coveted line however the situation changed fast and BTC initiated a leg up and resulted in hitting $42,000. The brief retracement followed, which brought BTC to $41,000. The bulls stepped up and pushed BTC north but this time the crypto exceeded $43,000 for the first time since March 3.
