Cardano's MAV grew from 22 to 36 in seven months

The Minimum Attack Vector (MAV) has increased from 22 to its current value of 36 in about 7 months. This is an improvement of roughly 40%. Although the MAV is not a sufficiently telling indicator of the quality of decentralization, it is one piece of data that is important. Let’s explore the details and analyze the reasons for improving the decentralization status of the Cardano network.


The MAV coefficient has increased since the Binance exchange stopped staking ADA. The combined stake of the 10 largest operators is now 10% lower than 7 months ago. Over the same period, the number of active addresses increased by almost 300,000 and the number of stakers by 56,000.
