Prominent blockchain Cardano is set to experience “exponential growth” in its Total Value Locked (TVL), according to a report by Cardano portfolio tracker TapTools.

In a thread on April 7, TapTools urged its 15,000 followers to keep a close eye on Cardano while stating the possible factors that can drive the expected explosive growth on the blockchain platform.

Innovation, Partnerships And Community To Drive Cardano’s TVL: TapTools 

Based on the TapTools report, one factor that should boost Cardano’s TVL is its innovative Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm, which TapTools believes makes the blockchain a top contender in the next phase of DeFi adoption. 

According to the team behind the asset tracker, Cardano’s unique PoS mechanism offers users a secure, scalable and eco-friendly solution that could benefit the platform, especially with the projected massive growth of the DeFi space.

TapTools also highlighted Cardano’s focus on financial inclusivity and real-world use cases as another possible key driver in the platform’s development. 

The team stated that this strategy enables Cardano to penetrate emerging markets allowing more users to join the network and boosting its TVL value. 

Another noteworthy point stated in the TapTools report is the role of strategic partnerships and collaborations in Cardano’s network growth. 

TapTools noted that Cardano’s partnerships with various industry giants would facilitate increased network adoption, thereby boosting its TVL growth in the coming years. 

That said, other factors stated in the TapTools report that could drive Cardano’s growth include its smart contract operations and its thriving community of developers, enthusiasts and investors.
