ADA is now the 3rd largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization on CoinGecko, outperforming BNB and USDT
According to data provided by CoinGecko's analytics website, Cardano's ADA has grown to become the third-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.
It has left behind Binance Coin (BNB) and the most popular USD pegged stablecoin – Tether's USDT.
According to the CoinGecko cryptocurrency scale, ADA has shown an increase of more than 13% in the last 24 hours and is now trading at $ 2.02. The coin broke the $ 2 level today.
The surge came when, earlier this week, IOHK and Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson announced that on Friday the 13th (today) he would announce to the community the exact date the smart contracts feature will launch.
At the moment, the market capitalization of ADA amounts to $ 65,061,028,575. The BNB and Tether limits now behind Cardano's native asset are $ 62,547,750,365 and $ 63,454,759,721, respectively.
