From September to the second week of October 2020, Cardano blockchain developers are clearly busy enhancing the network’s development. This active period follows the release of the Shelley mainnet upgrade last June, in line with its upcoming Goguen era.
Notably, within the 30-day timeline, Cardano’s GitHub has 403 activities, while Ethereum has 345. Ethereum developers are occupied with the preparation for Ethereum 2.0’s release.
As for Cardano, CEO of IOHK Charles Hoskinson mentioned on his recent surprise AMA live stream that Goguen will be released in a series of updates and hard fork events. Accordingly, Goguen adds the ability to build decentralized applications (DApps) on Cardano’s network.
As planned, the team will release this smart contract-focused upgrade within Q4 of 2020. Within the Goguen era, blockchain developers are in the process of creating Plutus, a purpose-built smart contract development language and execution platform. Alongside this is the Marlowe Playground, an easy-to-use application-building platform for building financial smart contracts.
Based on Cardano’s status update, the Plutus and Marlowe teams are making changes and improvements for Goguen’s smooth operations once released.
Upon waiting for Cardano’s third development phase, Dan Gambardello, the founder of Crypto Capital Venture, shared his opinion regarding the project’s potential:
ETH is a monster, but there will be a slow and large migration from Ethereum ecosystem to Cardano
It’s a move to be ready for 🚀
ADA & IOHK are just making moves!

This milestone is not a big shock to Cardano believers, as it was indeed the “busiest” project of 2019. Based on Santiment’s methodology, Cardano is the most actively-developed project within the industry last year.
More so, investors anticipate that ADA will become bullish once Goguen has been deployed. At the time of writing, ADA price is at $0.1095, with recorded gains of 18% for the last seven days.
