Local assets in Cardano released
The “enormous amount of activity” mentioned by Hoskinson includes large amounts of NFTs (non-duplicate tokens) and assets created in Cardano.
After checking the Cardanoassets.com site, Hoskinson said that there are 18,460 assets created on this blockchain. The network is growing fast, and it’s great to see that, he added.
What else is coming to Cardano soon in 2021?
According to the roadmap and Charles Hoskinson, the HFC event (hard fork) Alonzo at the end of April will be announced in Cardano 360 Episode if Cardano can continue the plans outlined in the roadmap.
The IOHK founder noted that even though some of these are a little later, they are still close.
Apart from that, Hoskinson said that the Plutos Pioneer program is ongoing. Alonzo is a program to recruit and train developers for Cardano in Plutus, the environment for Cardano-based smart contracts that will receive full support when launched.
