The Release of Cardano 1.5 and 1.5.1

Last week, IOHK released Cardano 1.5 onto the mainnet. This release was a milestone because it is the last major Cardano release of the Byron development phase. Following the release, there were a few users who encountered issues when updating Daedalus from old versions, to which IOHK was able to quickly release Cardano 1.5.1 to tackle and resolve the known issues.

Blockchain and Regulation

When it comes to cryptocurrency and blockchain adoption, regulation is the big elephant in the room that everyone is watching. Some believe that it can stifle innovation and growth in the industry, while others believe its needed from day one to ensure it becomes a system that sticks. What do you think?
