He also mentioned some of the announcements that will be made on the day of the anniversary. He announced the launch of Infinito mobile wallet and said that it would mark the company's 'first foray into this space'. He said in the video that some parts of the mobile wallet's design are based on Cardano's projects - Prometheus and Icarus.
Prometheus is a back-end toolbox that is used to power multiple wallets, including a command line wallet. Hoskinson, in his video, also revealed that the Cardano community can expect some Prometheus-related news to be revealed at the end of the month. He hinted that the update would be related to the command line client feature of Prometheus.
Hoskinson also said that Emurgo is planning for a release on the Cardano anniversary. Emurgo is a Japanese incubator that helps businesses that are focused on advancing blockchain technology.

At present, the crypto has a total market value of $2.21 billion, data from CoinMarketCap showed. Currently, it is one of the most secure and scalable blockchain networks in the market.
