Cardano launches social media app 

During the month of October, one of the major projects developed by the Cardano team went live. Notably, the blockchain company rolled out the first-ever social media application built to connect and empower all Cardano enthusiasts in a bid to help the development of native projects.

The platform, called Cardano Spot, boasts a sophisticated platform for onboarding Cardano native projects and their communities. The social media app allows Web3 users to connect with and learn about the Cardano ecosystem, covering a range of subjects such as decentralized finance (DeFi) projects, NFT projects, and more.

“Decentralised social media is the future of how people engage, connect, and earn rewards through contribution. We are thrilled to have launched the first social network on Cardano with the support from the community.”

– Sebastian Zilliacus, Co-Founder of Cardano Spot.

When it comes to the price of Cardano’s native crypto asset, ADA, the token was sitting at $0.29 at the time of writing, down 0.09% on the day. Over the past week, ADA has risen more than 5.6% and over 18% on the month.
