  • Cardano’s unparalleled uptime has stirred excitement in the community. 
  • Today, the POS chain stands tall among its competitors, outperforming them in reliability. 
  • Cardano is setting new standards for the crypto industry with its achievement. 

Cardano has been long vying for a spot among the top crypto projects in the industry. While it may still trail behind some competitors in market capitalization, the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) chain continues to outperform them in various aspects. 

This year, the PoS chain is on track to be the fastest-growing DeFi network, surpassing well-established players like Ethereum, Solana, and Polygon. Now, it is adding another feather to its crown: zero downtime. 

Cardano Stays Up All the Time

Recently, the ADA community was abuzz with excitement after a passionate enthusiast brought attention to a remarkable achievement – Cardano’s unparalleled uptime. With no network outages recorded in the past 2,129 days, amounting to approximately six years, the PoS chain has solidified its position as one of the world’s most reliable and stable blockchain networks. 


In stark contrast, some of Cardano’s biggest competitors, including Solana, Ethereum, and Polygon, have experienced multiple major outages this year, highlighting its exceptional consistency.

Cardano’s outstanding track record can be attributed to its status as the most actively developing network in the industry. Data aggregator Santiment has even recognized Cardano as the leader in network development, surpassing Ethereum and Polygon. As the PoS chain continues to set new standards for stability and innovation, its reputation as a leading blockchain network strengthens. 

More to Come to the PoS Chain

Cardano has a lot of updates in store for the upcoming weeks, all set to evolve the network significantly. The chain will welcome the highly anticipated Mithril update and Node 8.2.0 in the following weeks. 


Launching this summer, Mithril seeks to make the POS chain more efficient and streamlined by enabling the bootstrapping of full nodes, creating more opportunities for governance, network participation, and Dapp.

Node 8.2.0, on the other hand, will be the first step in Cardano’s journey towards full decentralization, introducing a plethora of governance features, SanchoNet, and more.
