Cardano, the leading Layer 1 (L1) blockchain, recently announced the  release of the first Hydra head on its mainnet as traditional Layer 1  (L1) blockchain networks attempt to become more scalable.

This is a key turning point for the community and opens the door to a new era of chain scalability.

Scaling has long been a major problem in the cryptocurrency world since  it is essential to the decentralization component of the so-called  “blockchain trilemma.”
