Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson announces that the rocket is in the air and Mary will reach orbit soon.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the rocket is in the air. Mary will reach orbit in one epoch: https://t.co/7D9WTH68iw welcome to the Mary era: “I was benevolent and good; misery made me a fiend. Make me happy, and I shall again be virtuous.”

A follower said: ‘HODL like you mean it ladies and gentlemen, the revolution is just on the horizon! and another follower said: ‘I don’t mean to sound illiterate, however; someone, please tell me who Mary is? Thank you!’
Someone responded: ‘Mary Shelley, married to the namesake of the Shelley era of Cardano, Percy Shelley, and also just so happened to be the original author of Frankenstein. Conveniently the name (MA) correlates to the (Multi-Asset) era this hard fork enables.’
A commenter said: “Welcome – the Mary upgrade will allow native assets on Cardano and is a critical step towards the Goguen release. Mary gives the capability to do new coins like wrapped BTC or fiat as well as NFTs, while Goguen will allow us to do smart contracts like DeFi and ICO’s on-chain.”
