Why Is It Moving? ADA moved higher even as major cryptocurrencies traded in the red with the global cryptocurrency market cap decreasing 1.46% to $2.59 trillion at press time.

ADA was the fourth-most mentioned coin on Twitter at press time, as per Cointrendz data. It attracted 2,307 tweets.

The three most mentioned coins were Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana, which attracted 4,412, 4,098, and 2,604 tweets, respectively. 

Hoskinson has been touching on various developments related to Cardano lately. On Tuesday, he doled out an explainer, in the form of a Twitter video, on a new Cardano-based fundraising mechanism that makes use of Initial Stake Pool Offering (ISPO). 

Cardano, often categorized as an Ethereum-killer, received smart contract functionality with the Alonzo hard fork in September. Hoskinson has also touched on DApp development and security in a recent video. He said DApps could hit the “market very soon like within weeks to months.”

On Thursday, Hoskinson once again touched on the certification and standardization of DApps through a tweet. The Cardano founder bemoaned fear, uncertainty, and doubt afflicting the cryptocurrency project and was critical of the disinformation surrounding Cardano.

Notably, Cardano is set to be delisted from the eToro cryptocurrency exchange by the end of the year.
