Input-Output Hong Kong (IOHK), the parent company of Cardano has announced its new road map for the year 2022. The IOHK’s Head of marketing and communications, Tim Harrison updated that it is in the ‘very final stages of its first major code drop for 2022. As the Cardano blockchain releases its first code drop during the ‘February release’, two more major successful code drops are on the way in June and October.
Meanwhile, the new upgrade allows the transaction to comply with the Concise Data Definition Language (CDDL) using Cardano’s native command-line interface (CLI) simultaneously. The new February release is full of hopes for ‘powerful improvement and enhancements’ to Cardano nodes.

Cardano’s upgradation in blockchain parameters
The code drop has bought fine adjustments to the multi-signature transactions for the users to allow incremental stages. The refurbishment implies multiple CLI tools for stake pool operators (SPOs), node users, and developers. Harrison mentions that along with the workability of the blockchain, the June and October hard fork combinator (HFC) consists of many attributes.
Further, some of the fundamental parameters like pipelining, new Plutus CIPs, UTXO on-disk storage, and Hydra are around the corner in the scaling plan. These features will be incorporated with further parameter adjustments to yield a high throughput and boost in the blockchain.
However, the gentle start of the infrastructure after the Alonzo hard fork did introduce the smart contract aptness to Cardano. Also, over time, many decentralized applications (dApps) have emerged on the Cardano blockchain. But the racing between the dApps is making the network more clogged and demeaning the performance output. Thus, the network is working round the clock to upgrade some parameters for better and increased scalability in the blockchain.
Despite of all upgrades, the native coin of Cardano (ADA) is running at $0.8155 at press time. It has seen a significant downfall of almost 70% since the last year.
