Cardano (CRYPTO:ADA) Founder Charles Hoskinson anticipates a major upgrade with the release of Cardano Node 9.0, signaling the platform's readiness for the Chang hard fork and the commencement of the Age of Voltaire.

This upgrade, contingent on 70% of Stake Pool Operators (SPOs) installing the new node software, will usher in a decentralised governance system and position Cardano as a "decentralised civilisation."

Hoskinson reflects on nearly a decade of development, expressing optimism for Cardano's future impact.

Despite technological strides, concerns about ADA's undervaluation persist amidst fluctuating prices.
