Going by Taurus’ tweet, Cardano’s integration reflects a growing institutional demand for a battle-tested Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain protocol.
Cardano is already available and was designed to fully support the Alonzo hard fork, which took place on September 12.
In view of this, staking functionalities were also installed into the institutional-grade platform. In essence, Taurus’ clients can now collect staking rewards on Cardano using Taurus-PROTECT.
Taurus’ Taurus-PROTECT digital asset custody platform is well-known throughout Europe. It has also added Cardano compatibility to Taurus-EXPLORER, the company’s own blockchain connectivity infrastructure.
