New Milestone: Number of Cardano (ADA) Staking Addresses Hits 1 Million

Cardano (ADA), the largest proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain, has attained a new milestone in terms of the number of active staking wallets.

According to Cardano-tracking website,, Cardano now has over 1 million ADA staking addresses. This implies that ADA holders are increasingly ready to stake their coins to earn rewards.

ADA holders on the Cardano network have a stake in the protocol that corresponds to the number of coins they hold. They can, in turn, delegate their tokens or stake the coins themselves to earn staking rewards.

Meanwhile, Cardano has been seeing a massive increase in the number of active addresses on its blockchain over the last couple of months.

According to data provided by analytics platform, Messari, the number of active addresses on the network surged to 485,693 on 22nd November 2021 before dropping to 150,476 on 5th December.

The number of active addresses on the Cardano network hit the all-time high when the price of the digital token ADA dipped below the $2 support level. This implies that the lethargic growth of ADA in terms of price has little or no effect on users’ interest.
