Cardano Needs Lots of Exchanges Participation for Liquidity

Alonzo mainnet rollout is the final phase of the Goguen era when smart contracts functionality is deployed on Cardano, the largest proof of stake (PoS) blockchain in the industry.

To make the Alonzo upgrade a success, the readiness of crypto exchanges is very important. Currently, Cardano is canvassing the support of exchanges for the Alonzo hard fork and a number of them have started showcasing their supports.
