Cardano becomes the most decentralized network on the market with majority of ADA supply staked

With more than 69 percent of its total circulating supply now staked, Cardano has surpassed Polkadot as the most decentralized network in the world. According to data from Staking Rewards, over 21.75 billion ADA has been staked on the Cardano network so far.

Cardano is now the most decentralized blockchain network in the world

Cardano, an ambitious blockchain platform created by IOHK, has been on a quest to become the worldโ€™s foremost blockchain platform, used for everything from dApps to digital identity and blockchain voting.

However, with the blockchainโ€™s smart contract, interoperability, and governance functionalities yet to be fully released, many have dismissed the significance it currently has on the market.

But, according to the latest data from data aggregator Staking Rewards, Cardano has now become the most decentralized blockchain network on the market. There is currently over 21.75 billion ADA staked on Cardano, representing 69 percent of its total circulating supply.

The blockchain has surpassed Polkadot, which has long held the first spot among blockchains in terms of staked value.
