Ailing stock markets continue to impact crypto prices and technical analysis suggests BTC is at risk of falling below its recent $25,500 low.
Cardano (ADA) price looks bullish as it does a U-turn on Monday following negative economic spikes from China getting crypto traders all worried. In addition, many major corporations are exiting Russia, including McDonald’s. All of these factors contribute to heightened risk sentiment making it entirely difficult for major cryptocurrencies to elevate in price than usual. This could also mean bad news for ADA; risking a 32% correction. The negative sentiment has been growing enormously which also signal a downward trend in the next quarters. As of this writing, the crypto is trading at $0.560514 on Coingecko, Wednesday, down 10% in the last seven days.

ADA price is heading for a nosedive right below the $0.47 price point or at the low end of the distribution zone which could even reach $0.38. On the brighter side, with the developments happening in the global economics and to the Cardano community, the first trading day of the week has shown promise of recovery. In fact, ADA price could possibly go towards $0.687 and move up to $0.915.

He was ecstatic about the raving support of the community. His remark saying “we got marketing,” definitely speaks volumes of his optimism despite the downward trend that ADA has displayed the previous days. The Cardano CEO is proud to have a strong and dedicated community comprised of 3 million members and still growing. The native tokens of Cardano also went up to 4.7 million. Moreover, Cardano has also managed to get $20 million more in funding since Mary 13. Its TVL has jumped from 18 million a few days ago to $137 million on May 16 – that is a 6% change of TVL in a matter of 24 hours. Featured image from Coinbase, chart from TradingView.com

Sentiment analysis run across a year’s worth of tweets has found that Ethereum is Twitter’s least favorite cryptocurrency of five studied, while Dogecoin received the most affection.
The crypto market has deep-dived to 11% in just 24 hours. It’s been in the hole or behind and most coins (led by LUNA) have been suffering major losses such as Avalanche, ApeCoin, Solana, and Shiba Inu, to name a few.
So, what’s happening here?
Price of Cardano (ADA) has been unstable following larger market trends. Bitcoin slid upto 20% over the past week and major altcoins followed through. Bitcoin’s revisit to levels that it hasn’t touched for months has caused other altcoins to plummet considerably. In just 24 hours, ADA nosedived 20% and over the last seven days, the coin posted over 30% loss in market value. ADA has been one of the worst performing altcoins of the month causing investors and buyers to flee the market. Continued sell off could cause the coin to dip further and rest near the $0.40 mark. Amidst other worrying factors, such as increasing inflation, hiked interest rates and an impending recession, broader market weakness could continue to bother the stability of the crypto industry. Cardano Price Analysis: Four Hour Chart ADA’s price at the time of writing stood at $0.50 which marks more 60% fall from its all all time high of $3 last year, September. The coin has almost noted a 35-week downtrend and the recent bearish price movement has made it nearly impossible for the coin to display chances of rebound. The coin continues to paint extreme oversold conditions. The coin depicted a downward trend (yellow) affirming the bearish thesis. At the current price level, Cardano might find a support level at $0.40. Investors might fight that scenario to be a buying opportunity which could lift ADA’s prices upward. In case of a rebound, which looks quite difficult, ADA could target $0.62. Volume of Cardano displayed a red bar which is indicative of bearishness, it also means that the coin is experiencing sell off at the time of writing. Technical Analysis Cardano had tried to retest its $0.62 level in the past few days but the bears kept dragging the altcoin down. At the time of writing, ADA was trading far below the 20-SMA line. This means that sellers were driving the price momentum of the coin in the market. After breaking from the downward trend, ADA had briefly tried to rally which had made the coin revisit the overbought zone as buyers gained confidence for a brief span of time as seen on the Relative Strength Index. Following this however, ADA barely recovered in terms of buying strength as the coin continued to juggle between the oversold zone and underbought zone. Related Reading | ADA On Discount?

BTC and many altcoins are fast approaching the “capitulation phase,” which is typically followed by the market finding a bottom.
The Cardano network is preparing for its upcoming Hard Fork Combinator (HFC) event “Vasil”. The cryptocurrency has been undergoing several updates and optimizations but continues to follow the general market sentiment. Related Reading | ADA On Discount? Cardano Whales Go On $200M Shopping Spree In fact, Cardano (ADA) price has been trending downside since the end of 2021 when it broke below $2 and has continued in that direction as larger cryptocurrencies re-test critical support levels. At the time of writing, ADA’s price trades at $0.80 with a 5% loss in the last 24-hours and a 6% loss in the past 7-days. The cryptocurrency has been moving down in terms of market cap after becoming one of the top 5 in these terms, but there are indicators pointing to potential bullishness. Per a post from Cardano developer Input Output Global (IOG), they are focused on preparing the network’s node and consensus for the upcoming HFC “Vasil”. Expected in June 2022, this update will upgrade the mainnet “performance properties”. “Vasil” is mainly aimed at making Cardano more efficient when processing decentralized applications (dApps) transactions. Thus, smart contract users on the network will benefit from a better experience. The network introduced its smart contract capabilities back in 2021 with a series of Hard Fork Combinator events (HFC) which ended with the “Alonzo” upgrade. Since that time, the Cardano ecosystem has seen an important expansion. Despite the growth, ADA’s trading volume has been moving to the downside along with its price. As since below, this metric reached an all-time high in May 2021 and has seen trouble in getting back to previous highs. Conversely, ADA’s transaction volume has been on the rise and recently hit a multi-year high. This suggests that while retail investors might not be as active on Cardano, whales are potentially buying the dip as the “Vasil” upgrade approaches with the potential to increase the ecosystem’s use cases and efficiency. Cardano Facilitates Entry Into Its Ecosystem Cardano developer IOG recently revealed the launch of Essential Cardano. An initiative was created to make it easier for users to explore the ADA-based ecosystem.

Bitcoin and most altcoins could remain volatile in the short-term due to the Fed’s decision, warranting caution from traders.
Cardano (ADA) has been on a steady downtrend since September of 2021 after hitting its all-time high of $3.1. This has been one of the most brutal downtrends for its investors, the majority of which are now drowning in losses. However, as they say, that one man’s misfortune is another man’s come up, whales have seen this as a perfect opportunity to buy up as much ADA as they can. They have now ramped up their buying and have accumulated about $200 million worth of ADA in the space of a month. Whales Buy 194 Million ADA Over the past five weeks, Cardano whales have been busy accumulating the digital asset. These whales who hold between 1 million and 10 million ADA on their wallet balances have been the most active since the digital asset has been falling and trending around $1. It seems this has presented a buying opportunity to these whales who have now purchased 196 million ADA in this five-week period.

This is not a new trend for Cardano whales though. In the first quarter of 2022 alone, it is reported that addresses that held between 1 and 10 million ADA on their balances had bought over 4 billion ADA. This had increased their collective balances to 12.19 before the dump trend that had started in the middle of March. Cardano Hits Yearly Lows The current price of Cardano is nothing to write home about but it seems that there is no clear end to this downtrend anytime soon. The digital asset has now managed to hit new yearly lows. ADA had last been at prices this low in February of 2021 and that was when the digital asset was at the beginning stages of its impressive 2021 bull rally. ADA price hits one year low | Source: ADAUSD on TradingView.com Even though the network boasts one of the most loyal investors following in the space, its price does not reflect this loyalty, nor does it reflect all of the upgrades that are being made on the network.

Via an official post, Cardano developer Input Output Global (IOG) confirmed the approval and implementation of a proposal to increase the network’s block size. Currently standing at 80 kilobytes (KB), the mainnet will see a 10% increase to 88 KB. Related Reading | Cardano (ADA) Is One Of The Worst Performing Crypto In Terms Of Profit Set to roll out today April 25 at 20:20 UTC, at the boundary of epoch 335, as confirmed by the company. IOG called this proposal a “significant network enhancement” set to increase Cardano’s throughput and the performance of its decentralized applications (dApp). As the company reiterated, Cardano has been experiencing a series of network upgrades that will allow it to improve its scaling capabilities in 2022. As the block size increase, IOG added, they will keep a close eye on it for future changes: Once deployed, we shall monitor network performance and behaviour closely over at least one epoch (5 days) to determine the next increment. Cardano has seen phenomenal growth in recent months, with performance improvements to match. Furthermore, the company claims that Cardano has been experiencing a “huge recent rise in transaction volume”. In that sense, with the addition of more improvements, they expect this trend to continue. IOG is focused on optimizing Cardano as it prepares for its next Hard Fork Combinator (HFC) event set for around June this year. IOG added: Cardano is one of the most decentralized blockchains in the world, built for correctness and security. As the ecosystem grows, we’re focused on delivering the scaling phase of our roadmap; improving speed and network capacity while maintaining security and decentralization. As NewsBTC reported, the network seems to be experiencing an increase in institutional demand, per data from IntoTheBlock.

Data from Token Terminal paints a different picture. As seen below, ADA’s trading volume saw a massive increase in late 2021 as the cryptocurrency began a persistent downside price action. This suggests investors started taking profit on ADA at that time. Since that period, the cryptocurrency saw an uptick in trading volume during January which led to further losses for ADA. Only the increase in trading volume for March and April has led to profits for this cryptocurrency. Remains to be seen if the network improvements, as IOG claims, will be effective at bringing more users into the Cardano ecosystem which could result in sustainable price recovery.

Wingriders is one of the most exciting DEXes to launch on Cardano and now they are bringing stablecoins! https://t.co/Rpsl9znhyl — Charles Hoskinson (@IOHK_Charles) April 12, 2022 A decentralized exchange running on Cardano, WingRiders partnered with another two projects called Flint Wallet and Milkomeda, created to provide sidechains with friendly user and developer UX, to launch these stablecoins on the mainnet. According to a Medium post, Milkomeda will implement the Ethereum Virtual Machine on their Cardano sidechain. This sidechain will operate with a synthetic version of ADA called wrapped ADA (wADA). In practice, this will allow users to leverage the Milkomeda sidechain and wADA to connect with Ethereum, as seen in the diagram below. This will remove friction from the process of trading ERC-20 tokens with native Cardano tokens. WingRiders said: Milkomeda itself is an EVM based side chain of Cardano — supporting the ERC20 tokens stored for the user (for example on their Flint wallet or again using Metamask). A gateway will lock these ERC-20 tokens then issue Cardano native equivalents of these tokens on to the Cardano blockchain. This can be done via the Flint wallet. Bitcoin And Ethereum To Integrate With Cardano (ADA)? As WingRiders explained, the tokens on one side of the two chains will enter a smart contract to be “locked” as the synthetic versions are minted on the other side. In the case of the stablecoins, these digital assets will be “pre-mined” before the user request them and they will be “locked on the Cardano mainnet”. In that way, users can benefit from a “simple” way to transact on this network. Stablecoin is some of the most important digital assets because it can operate as a “liquidity accelerator” and onboard new users, fresh capital, and new assets, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, to the ecosystem. However, bridges have become objects of attack by bad actors. Some of the biggest DeFi hacks in recent times have occurred on these platforms. Therefore, the potential for this partnership and ADA’s performance seems great, but not without potential tradeoffs.

They also caught the bug in Minswap and did a responsible disclosure saving the DApp from hackers. Good people get callouts.

Cardano was pushed down in the crypto top 10 by market cap as LUNA and XRP took over its former place. However, ADA’s price has been surging in the last month and could reclaim previous highs as the general sentiment turns bullish. Related Reading | Cardano Soars 13% On Rumors Of Burn Mechanism Rollout, Charles Hoskinson Reacts At the time of writing, Cardano (ADA) trades at $1.20 with a 30% rally over this period. This makes ADA the best-performing cryptocurrency by market cap. ADA’s price has been recovering from a multi-month downside that saw its price drop from an all-time high at around $3 to under $1 in 2022. There are several factors contributing to the current rally. This includes the full implementation of smart contract capabilities, the increase in developer activity recorded by the network, the improvement of Cardano to make it more decentralized and scalable, according to its main developer IOG. Most importantly, the above factors have translated into an ecosystem explosion. There are hundreds of projects building on Cardano which could be re-fueling the Ethereum Killer narrative. IOG recently highlighted some of these projects. Via their official Twitter handle, the company said: The Cardano ecosystem is growing by leaps and bounds, with new players entering the ecosystem every day.

After that, I expect to see a bullish rebound to the $1.200 – $1.250 range.” Moreover, the Coin’s RSI could be pointing at an oversold market, which might translate into a pullback or even a similar upside trend to previous upward movement scenarios: “The last 3 times ADA has hit 70 Stoch RSI and dipped back down on the daily chart – like it is today – it has exploded to the upside in days after,” a trader noted per TradingView. Break-Out Still To Come? Despite the retracement, a pattern that resemblances to a cycle Ethereum had back in 2017 could still play out, meaning a bullish momentum for ADA. Notice the comparison by a pseudonym trader below: If the coin sees a bounce, which is expected to happen if Bitcoin breaks its current resistance level, then ADA could follow the previous Ethereum movements to a very bullish uptrend. Earlier, the pseudonym trader who showed the resemblance was on the lookout for the 1D candle to close above the near $1.2 level ADA had moved upwards to, which did not happen because of the mentioned pull back. However, in their opinion, it already looked “as if ADA is replicating Ethereum’s (ETHUSD) bullish break-out in early January 2017.” “See how the price action that led to this since March 2016 is also quite similar to ADA’s price action since May 2021. Same Channel Down, followed by a Higher High, a near Support test and the start of the Lower Highs. Even the RSI fractals are similar.” Another trader believes that ADA is in a measured move nearing its target. “There we will have some trading range and possible 2nd leg… Watch closely,” they added.

ADA seems unstoppable with a 37% rally in the last week. The seventh crypto by market cap is the best performing asset on that ranking and could continue to reclaim previous highs. Related Reading | Cardano Completes Network Upgrade, ADA Reacts To The Upside At the time of writing, ADA’s price trades at $1.16 with a 12% profit in the last 24-hours. The current seems to be fueled by leading crypto exchange Coinbase announcement to included Cardano to its staking offering. The platform has enabled users to stake their ADA and benefit from reward. According to the exchange’s blog, this service aims at removing friction from the process of staking ADA. For some users, Coinbase said, this can be “confusing and complicated”. Per the exchange’s latest earnings report, the platform records 43 million users with 3 million active users per month. In 2021, Coinbase reported $1,6 billion in revenue, most of which proceeded from retail traders. In that sense, ADA staking has found a major spot to increase its adoption levels and provide millions with access to its rewards. The platform is offering a 3.75% APY for ADA staking, with a reward delivery schedule of 5 to 7 days. Cardano is quickly approaching the important psychological price point of $1.20. The cryptocurrency last saw these levels before its move into its all-time high near $3. In the short term, Cardano could face hurdles as it attempts to break above $1.20. Data from Material Indicators (MI) records a cluster of asks or selling orders around those levels. As the chart shows, these asks could operate as resistance with $3 million in selling orders. In case of rejection, $1.16 could act as support as there are $1,5 million in bid orders. As the price of Cardano moves higher, MI also records an increase in selling pressure from investors with asks orders of around $100,000 (purple in the chart below). This selling has been mostly absorbed by smaller investors with bid orders of around $10,000 (red in the chart below). Cardano Ecosystem Growths Despite its critics, the Cardano ecosystem shows important growth after introducing smart contract capabilities, as measure by its total value locked (TVL). According to a report from Wu Blockchain: On March 23, Cardano TVL exceeded 300 million US dollars, most of which were provided by two DEXs, and TVL ranked 24th among all L1s. Currently, ADA worth $23.8 billion is staking in the Cardano network, with a staking rate of 71.64%.

Cardano remains one of the best performing assets in the crypto top 10 by market cap for the past 7 days. ADA’s price, with Avalanche (AVAX), Ethereum (ETH), and Solana (SOL), trades with over 15% in profit over this time period, and gains could extend on different timeframes. Related Reading | Cardano Soars 13% On Rumors Of Burn Mechanism Rollout, Charles Hoskinson Reacts At the time of writing Cardano trades north of $0.90 with a 2.5% profit in the last 24 hours. While Bitcoin and larger cryptocurrencies by market cap move sideways, Cardano’s reaction to the upside could be driven by its increase in the number of project building on its ecosystem, and recent improvements implemented on the network. Cardano’s developer Input Output Global (IOG) has been focused on optimizing and improving the network. Today, this company revealed their latest update proposal to increase the per-block Plutus script memory units limits from 56 million to 62 million. This update, the company clarified, will aid the network’s scalability. Plutus is one of Cardano’s recent most recent components as the network made a transition to implement smart contract capabilities. Operating a platform, Plutus enables users to leverage a programming environment. In that way, users can build their own smart contract without needing technical skills, maintaining code, and removing the need to use a full development environment. Plutus is one of Cardano’s most ambitious products as it’s aim at removing friction from the DeFi sector and onboarding more users to its ecosystem. According to IOG, this update proposal will: his incremental adjustment is the latest in a continuing series of optimizations and increases to network capacity that are being made as Cardano continues to scale in 2022 for future growth. Once deployed, we’ll monitor carefully for at least one epoch (5 days) before assessing any further adjustment. Continued observation & orientation guided by real world usage is key to growing Cardano capacity safely (…). Cardano Enters A New Era The update, IOG added, will come into effect on March 21, UTC 21:44, when the network will reach epoch boundary 328. The company highlighted the “phenomenal growth in recent months”, and users should expect “significant” future growth as well as Cardano becomes more “optimize”. In that sense, the company warn users about the potential increase in network traffic as a result of new DeFi projects launching on Cardano, and new users entering the network. This could bring congestion to the network, as IOG said, specially around NFT drops or a token launch.

In the last 7 days, Cardano is one of the best performers on the crypto top 10 by market cap. Proof-of-Stake networks lead the market, as Bitcoin and others stand in the back. Related Reading | Cardano (ADA) Takes A Tumble After Hoskinson Is Accused Of Falsifying Credentials Avalanche (AVAX) records almost 30% in profits, as Ethereum (ETH) records 16% and Cardano (ADA) 13% profits over the past week. ADA’s price trades at $0.89, as of press time, and could see further gains in the short term as the market experiences further gains. ADA’s price appreciation could be fueled by rumors about the potential implementation of a burn mechanism for Cardano. The news was shared on Twitter by WatcherGuru triggering a reaction from the ADA community. The source of the rumor could be a tweet from Clark Alesna, developer and CEO of a company called SAIB Inc. Alesna accepted a “challenge” from Hoskinson and said he will start production of a burn smart contract for ADA. Alesna said: It seems like no one really took Charles Hoskinson challenge to build a #Cardano $ADA burn smart contract challenge that he put out some time ago. So, I’m taking matters into my own hands and started to plan and code it this weekend. I’ll update you guys soon. However, the tweet and its replies suggest Alesna was simply joking. The message by taken seriously by certain media outlets which triggered a reply from Hoskinson himself. The inventor of Cardano shared the following meme as a response to these reports. https://t.co/f9qU9xW5gl pic.twitter.com/KfaZEEBXrw — Charles Hoskinson (@IOHK_Charles) March 19, 2022 The ADA community seems to agree a burning mechanism will never be implemented on Cardano and classified the rumors as “misleading”. Most of the users seem to agree this system will bring disadvantages to the network. A pseudonym user said: Misleading information. There will never be layer 1 chain burns. You can’t burn utxo protocol just like bitcoin. Token means layer 2 blockchain on Cardano may require burns. Have to get this clear. Why eth burn? Because they build very differently in terms of accounting model. We shall not talk about them as they are struggling to roll out decentralised proof of stake. The Cardano Ecosystem On Fire Data shared by Hoskinson suggest the Cardano ecosystem has been expanding since the implementation of its smart contract capabilities. As seen below, there are over 500 projects building on this network, per Hoskinson. Currently, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) seem to be dominating development on this network, native marketplaces for these digital assets follow at a much smaller scale, with Decentralized Exchanges (DEX), GamiFi, and wallets. Related Reading | Cardano (ADA) Attains 9th Position in Market Valuation During Ecosystem Inflows He hinted at the continuation of this trend, as Cardano deepest into its third era of development, known as Basho. Hoskinson said: “Moving the chains. A large wave will come after June when the Vasil hardfork happens”. This could potentially support the continuation of the current bullish trend for ADA’s price.
With a market valuation of $28.68 billion, Cardano (ADA) has claimed the 9th position in cryptocurrency market capitalization, surpassing Avalanche (AVAX). Despite recent inflows into its ecosystem, the coin beat Avalanche’s $22.28 billion to attain the title of 9th largest coin. As the value of Cardano’s ecosystem has skyrocketed, so too have funds flowing into it. From roughly $1.7 million in mid-January to a present-day total value locked (TVL) up at just under $315 million – or a 18420% increase. The Cardano team has entered the third phase of its construction, a process known as Basho, the Cardano’s next era after Alonzo. Cardano plans to release Hydra, a collection of Layer 2 solutions, as part of this phase. In this stage, Basho will update Cardano’s security and scalability. Related Reading | Cardano Based Project Bashoswap Introduces Launchpad and DEX The first Hydra Heads have opened on the public Cardano testnet, and it is an exciting moment for this scaling journey. As a result, the protocol can be vital in ensuring that there are no problems along the way towards becoming a fully decentralized network. Cardano Price Action And Ecosystem Inflows The Cardano ecosystem is booming with new funds, attracting nearly $150 million in March alone. With the surge of total value locked at over $314.87 million from roughly $168.95 million, big things are expected for this crypto project. Cardano’s TVL has increased by more than 80% in just two weeks. And It is currently worth $225.9 million without including staked governance assets. The increase was noted on February 28th through March 16th, when the number rose from $150 million to $314.87 million. The Cardano Minswap has seen a surge in total value locked (TVL) over the last week, with 121% more locked up than before. Cardano Minswap became the most significant protocol by flipping the SundaeSwap. The majority of funds on this network now reside at its Minswap decentralized platform–with $115 million currently locked. Even as Cardano (ADA) continues to progress, the price has failed to catch up. The coin has been on a downward journey after reaching its ATH at $3.10 in September 2021.

“The schools say he didn’t graduate from undergrad. Also, he has said multiple times, including in our interview, that he dropped out from a PhD program,” claimed crypto-journalist Laura Shin.
Cardano (ADA) is one of the most popular digital assets in the crypto market. The network which has been the subject of never-ending upgrades has made its mark as a force to be reckoned with, both development-wise and price-wise. However, it has been on a downtrend since it hit its all-time high of $3 last year and has not made any meaningful recovery since then. This has recently been further made worse by accusations about the network’s founder, Charles Hoskinson. Hoskinson who founded Cardano in 2017 has come under fire for some information that was published in journalist Laura Shin’s new book. Hoskinson Falsifying Information? In her new book The Cryptopians, Laura Shin opens a window into the world of key players in the space. One of those who made the lineup was Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson. According to Shin, Hoskinson had made some untrue claims with regards to his schooling and education. Shin said that the founder had previously told her that he had dropped out of a Ph.D. program which she had confirmed to be false. Related Reading | Risk Aversion Pulls Crypto Market Down, Bitcoin Still Below $40K Shin made the accusations in response to a comment Hoskinson had made on Twitter calling her book a “great work of fiction.” The crypto journalist had subsequently fired back at Hoskinson asking him to address the discrepancies between his claims about his schooling and the statements from the schools stating that Hoskinson was never enrolled in their Ph.D. program and one of the schools didn’t even offer a math Ph.D. program.

To which the crypto journalist had countered with an audio recording of Hoskinson saying that he was a grad student. “I was trying to get a Ph.D., and I ended up dropping out and never finished,” Hoskinson is heard saying on the recording. Cardano (ADA) Takes A Hit Hoskinson is yet to respond to the accusations levied by Shin regarding his claims that he had dropped out of a Ph.D. program. Nonetheless, the digital asset has reacted to this controversy. On March 6, when Shin had posted the accusations, there had not been much movement in the price of the digital asset, although it had continued its downward plunge. However, once the exchange began to gain more attention, the effects were being felt on the charts. ADA falls to $0.8 | Source: ADAUSD on TradingView.com On Monday, March 7th, ADA had taken a pretty significant nosedive that put it below $0..8 for the first time in over a year.

Cardano investors have been heavily impacted by current market conditions with ADA losing its spot in the top 5 crypto by market cap. After an impressive rally during 2021, this cryptocurrency has lost critical zones and could return to previous lows. Related Reading | Cardano (ADA) Ready For Rally Towards $1.50? What Indicators Are Saying At the time of writing, ADA’s price trades at $0.87 with a 2.3% loss in the last 24 hours. In higher timeframes, Cardano records a 19.5% and 28.1% loss for the past 30 days and over the past year, respectively. ADA’s price seems to be following the general sentiment in the market as larger cryptocurrencies are trending to the downside over macro-factors and general uncertainty. The Ukrainian-Russia conflict and a potential shift in the U.S. Federal Reserve (FED) monetary conflict seem to be operating as the core causes of unrest in market participants. However, Cardano seems to be suffering more losses than other cryptocurrencies in the top 10 by market cap. In the short term, these losses could deepen beyond $0.85. Data from Material Indicators (MI) shows major resistance for the bulls at around $0.89 which could keep the price suppressed at its current levels, at least for now. There are around $2 million in asks orders at $0.89, as seen below. If bulls manage to break above this resistance, the $1 mark stands as the next major resistance with fewer asks orders stacked at those levels. Only $1 million in asks orders sit at that price point. On the downside, bulls are facing more troubles as liquidity around $0.85 seems to be getting thinner which could suggest further losses in the short term. As Cardano trend lower into its current levels, bid orders went from over $1.5 million to around $900,000. Cardano Whales Come Into The Picture, Who Is Buying ADA At Current Levels? If these levels fail, $0.80 stands as the next major support to prevent a deeper plunge into previous lows. However, further data shows that retail investors are buying the dip, in lower timeframes with larger investors have been selling. As seen below, investors with asks orders of around $100,000 (purple line below) have been selling into current PA, while smaller investors with orders of around $100 (yellow line below) have been buying. Bulls have seen support from investors with around $1,000 (green line below) in bid orders, but nothing significant for lower timeframes. In higher timeframes, Cardano whales seem to have been buying ADA at current levels for around a week. Data provided by a pseudonym user indicates that addresses holding over 100,000 ADA have seen an increase of over 1,000 ADA during this period.

Ecosystem builder running on Cardano, AdaSwap, recently announced the successful completion of a $2.5 million funding round. Launched with the objective of “establishing” the first DeFi protocols operational on this blockchain, AdaSwap saw a lot of interest from noticeable investors. Related Reading | Here’s What Cardano Founder Charles Hoskinson Wants For Christmas According to an official post, the funding round was led by iAngels, with participation from Shima Capital, Pluto Digital, GBV, Stardust, Efficient Frontier, Finova, Banter Capital, and COTI. Other investors from outside the crypto space also took a stake in the project. As the post confirmed, Hollywood actress Gal Gadot, known for her portrayal of DC Comics character Wonder Woman and for her roles in movies such as Justice League, Batman v. Superman, Fast & Furious, Cleopatra, and others, was part of the funding round. Gadot’s husband Jaron Varsano, producer and actor involved in the Wonder Woman movie sequel, also participated in the $2.5 million round. Cardano inventor and CEO at Input Output Global, Charles Hoskinson, welcomed Gadot to the “family”. Via his Twitter handle, Hoskinson shared the following message. I’m glad to welcome Wonder Woman to the Cardano Family https://t.co/ddeDPX7YI0 — Charles Hoskinson (@IOHK_Charles) March 2, 2022 Per the post, AdaSwap will use the funds to “deliver on its goal of building the best-decentralized exchange on Cardano”. The DEX will be complemented by other AdaSwap products to be released on this ecosystem including a native NFT marketplace. In addition, the project aims at providing ADA users with a decentralized platform to swap native tokens. Therefore, the claim is to be building a gamified Cardano protocol to enable users to trade native tokens deploy on this network. The team behind the project added: Its plans also include the creation of a Cardano-native NFT marketplace and decentralized finance capabilities such as staking and fixed, long-term and high-yield liquidity pools. Through these applications, DEX users will be able to stake tokens, buy and sell NFTs and earn interest on their Cardano tokens.

Cardano follows the general sentiment in the market as it records a 4.2% profit in the last 24 hours. The price of ADA trades north of $0.96 with a 12.6% profit in the last 7 days. Cardano seems to benefit from an overall increase of demand across digital assets and potential mitigation of macro-economic headwinds for risks-on assets. In addition, the network seems to be steadily moving towards new improvements. Related Reading | Cardano Inventor Front-Ran SundaeSwap Users? Research Casts Light Per a recent update from Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK), the company behind Cardano’s development, the network recently saw the implementation of the first of 3 major updates. IOHK claims the core network was upgraded and was introduced to “powerful improvements and enhancements”. The company has been preparing to introduce these changes on the network, according to Tim Harrison, Marketing and Communications Director at IOHK, after the successful implementation of smart contract capabilities. IOHK added: This February release is part of a broader plan of core Cardano optimizations and enhancements being delivered in 2022. These include key elements of our scaling plan like pipelining, significant performance improvements to Plutus, Hydra and input endorsers. Additionally, the company confirmed the deployment of complementary products and architecture, such as light wallets and UTXO on-disk storage, a dApp store, and a certification program. IOHK also claimed they will release new APIs and development tools, sidechains, and a fast synchronization solution. In order to meet their optimization and scalability goals, Cardano will see parameter adjustments across the year. The company claims these changes will be implemented “steadily” to guarantee the safety of the users. IOHK added: While you can still expect high network loads at times – e.g. around highly-anticipated launches & NFT + token drops – through methodical adjustments you’ll steadily see headroom expand as the ecosystem grows. All the while maintaining the robustness & security of the network The Improvements Released On Cardano Harrison clarified some of the previously mentioned improvements, such as the ability to create transactions with CDDL which will make developers less dependable on third-party tools. Also, ADA users will be able to leverage incremental multi-signature transactions. In addition, IOHK has implemented improvements on the network Command Line Interface (CLI). Thus, stake pool operators (SPOs), developers, and users can benefit from more predictable transactions, mempool inspection tools, and leadership schedule tools. Harrison added the following on the recently introduced and the upcoming updates with two Hard Fork Combinator (HFC) events expected for June and October 2022: In combination with parameter adjustments, these features will enhance Cardano’s throughput and optimize the system to accommodate an increasing range of decentralized finance (DeFi) apps, smart contracts, and DEXs.

Over the weekend, a Reddit post accusing Charles Hoskinson, inventor of Cardano of front-running SundaeSwap users went viral. A pseudonym user said Hoskinson used a large amount of ADA to benefit from a price hike on the decentralized exchange native token, SUNDAE. Related Reading | Cardano Price Up And Down Amidst SundaeSwap Launch As one of the first DEX running on Cardano, there is a lot of hype around SundaeSwap. The ADA whale, according to the user, used his funds to queue jump other users and be one of the first to benefit from SUNDAE’s launch. The pseudonym user based the accusations on three alleged facts: a large SUNDAE order was placed before the DEX was deployed, a wallet with millions of ADA was created specifically for this event, the funds can be tracked to another wallet with “a billion of unstaked ADA” or an entity sitting at the top of the Cardano rich list. The pseudonym user claims the large transactions were linked to the inventor of Cardano after “about an hour clicking CardanoScan links”. The user provided a link of addresses related to his claims which can be viewed in the following link. In addition, the pseudonym user addressed the possibility of a crypto exchange or similar entity involved with the transaction rather than Charles Hoskinson by saying: I do not think any of the addresses in the chain of CardanoScan links below are exchange wallets. You can take a look through them and try to identify which you think is an exchange, but it looks to me they are regular wallets. Most of the addresses in the sequence have just a single input and single output, so it was easy to trace. Since IOHK, the company responsible for developing Cardano, was a key player on many of the projects or components on this network’s ecosystem, seems logical a large portion of ADA is linked back to them. However, the pseudonym user seems to believe that an important portion of the ADA supply in circulation can’t be linked to IOHK. Inventor Of Cardano Replies To Accusations The inventor of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, replied to the accusations and to the Reddit post. Via his Twitter account, Hoskinson said: Had a look at the sundae Reddit posts that have been cropping up. It looks like the funds came from a Coinbase custody account that aggregates thousands of users. Later, Hoskinson shared a link to a full investigation conducted by Colin Edwards, a Quantitative Strategist at IOHK. Therein, he explains Cardano’s UTXO model and by using on-chain analysis tracks down the SundaeSwap frontrunner. Edwards posted the transactions that “jumped the queue” and the tools he employed to conduct his investigation. Ultimately, he concluded that a wealthy client probably using Coinbase Custody was behind the transactions. IOHK’s Quant said a subpoena, a product of a legal procedure, could identify the actor. He added: (…) practically all Ada is within 3 transactions of being on an exchange where it would have mixed with funds originating from IOHK. Having funds originating from IOHK deposited at a large custody company, along with funds from thousands of others, is a statistical certainty – not a smoking gun.

Despite the crypto market’s bloodshed, in the past few days, the Cardano (ADA) trading activity has been relentless, and its holders’ balance remains strong with a multi-year high. Into The Block data indicates that the wallet balance held by long-term Cardano holders hit a multi-year high on February 23. “Regardless of the price action, Cardano‘s holders remain strong. The balance held by HODLERS- addresses holding >1 year, is at a multi-year high. These HOLDERS increased their positions to 10.12b $ADA, the largest balance since December 11, 2019.” Despite the geopolitical tension causing the altcoin’s price to drop dramatically, traders have increased their position of Cardano. Holders have accumulated the highest balance of ADA since December 2019. Cardano’s network recent developments might be serving as fuel to its supporters, and as a consequence, many believe its price will climb. “Every bounce is still getting sold off, waiting for a final leg down before a reversal. Would consider buying this at 0.50,” an analyst noted. A Finder’s poll indicated several analysts believe the price of ADA will reach $58 by 2030, and a few thought it might close this year at $2.72, a 160% increase. Many traders received the $58 prediction as an exaggeration unless the Cardano ecosystem truly manages to explode during the following years. Expert Vanessa Harris was also bullish on the altcoin. She expects it to close 2022 around the $3 mark, adding that its criticized slow-paced growth could pay off as nations turn their eyes towards it: “It is one of the few smart contract platforms that have placed security, correctness [and] decentralization at their core, backed by formal methods and peer-reviewed research… While this means Cardano moves more deliberately in the short term, long term this resilience should support adoption by nation-states and non-governmental organizations. We are already seeing this adoption happen in Ethiopia and Tanzania.” However, other experts remained bearish and cited “lack of execution and poor technology” and alleged that “They have failed on their promise of delivery for the last several years.” But however slow, the expansion of its DeFi ecosystem is starting to happen and might support the loyal holders’ sentiment. Related Reading | Cardano Daily Transaction Volume Up, But ADA Prices Remain Sluggish Cardano DeFi Expansion Cardano volumes and transactions are growing as developers focus on building the first dApps solutions and its DeFi space is set to grow. It has even surpassed the on-chain activity of Ethereum ranking 2nd in 24h transaction volume after registering $17.04 billion on February 22. In terms of gaining traction, the decentralized exchange SundaeSwap, an Automated Market Maker DEX, was anticipated by many users and launched at the beginning of the year. It tumbled at the beginning due to congestion. But after some adjustments of the block size done by IOHK, the transactions run smoothly now and SundaeSwap reports a Total Value Locked of $21 million. The boom of NFTs is also contributing to the Cardano blockchain attraction. The non-custodial decentralized exchange ecosystem Arcadex will soon be launched on the network. It has generated enthusiasm for providing a wide variety of DeFi services through both DEX and NFT marketplaces. Despite the slow-paced growth and 6-month downtrend, Cardano is still gaining traction and holders are not letting go. More growth is expected as the Cardano roadmap aims to increase scalability.

Cardano (ADA) appears to be bullish. However, the uptrend seems to experience a limitation as there are possibilities of several obstructions in its way. Thus, traders need to be cautious around the ADA coin and its forthcoming rally. What is Cardano? Cardano is a PoS (Proof of Stake) blockchain that is open-source and distributed. Cardano implements peer-to-peer transactions using its native token, ADA. The crypto project was developed in 2015 and released in 2017 by the former Co-Founder of Ethereum, Charles Hoskinson. Related Reading | South African Man Loses $900,000 Worth Of Bitcoin After Accidentally Deleting Keys Also, Cardano is popularly known as the “Ethereum Killer” as it attempts to solve issues related to the Ethereum blockchain. ADA provides a versatile, sustainable, and scalable network for deploying smart contracts. Using Cardano, you can develop and deploy an extensive array of dApps (decentralized applications), crypto coins, games, and other projects. Cardano Price Continuously Appreciates ADA price experienced a 45% downtrend between the 20th and 22nd of January, a similar experience to Bitcoin. Even though ADA dipped beneath the $1 psychological level, it didn’t create any candlestick lower than that. However, it quickly regained from this level. The ADA token leaped by 20% from its bottom price and signals that this uptrend will be consistent. Although this uptrend is worth considering, the coin will encounter several obstructions in its way. On the contrary, this upswing appears to be limited near the $1.22 level, and this is because of the 50-day SMA (Simple Moving Average). IntoTheBlock’s Global In/Out Model The transaction data gotten from the GIOM (Global In/Out of the Money) model reinforces this capping thesis for ADA’s price. The Global In/Out of the Money model, an on-the-chain trading index, displayed that about 484,540 addresses bought circa 6.2 billion ADA coins at the regular price of $1.26, and they were “Out of the Money” transactions. Thus, any day-trading purchasing pressure that rallies Cardano (ADA) into this region will encounter an enormous bearish pressure. Also projecting that this upswing will be short-spanned is decreased number of new coin addresses entering Cardano’s mainnet from 73,780 to about 63,310 within the past month. It’s worthy to note that this 14% decrease signifies that ADA traders are less interested in the coin’s prices at its present levels.

At the time of writing, Cardano looks promising on its charts. ADA had broken over the $1.10 mark yesterday and was currently priced at $1.20. The $1.10 mark for ADA had acted as a long-standing resistance mark for the coin. The break above the aforementioned level could push ADA to trade above the $1.20 mark over the upcoming trading sessions. The bullish force in the market seems to have propelled the prices of Cardano significantly. In the last 24 hours itself, ADA’s price grew by 6%. Continued trading above the $1.20 mark would help the bulls to breach the immediate resistance of $1.28. Breaking above the $1.28 mark, and Cardano could aim for $1.41. Cardano Price Analysis: Four-Hour Chart Cardano had been trading tightly between the $0.90 and $1 mark for the past couple of weeks. Recent Market-wide appreciation in prices has caused ADA to move in a northbound manner. At press time, ADA was seen trading at $1.20 and was eyeing the $1.28 resistance level. The nearest support level rested at $1.16, falling through which ADA would target $1.10. If ADA manages to uphold the current price momentum then it could soon aim for $1.41. The technical outlook for the coin is quite bullish. On the four-hour chart, bulls were dominant, therefore indicating that buying strength seems substantial. Over the last week, ADA had displayed a Golden Cross and secured a 14.7% gain. A Golden Cross happens when the 20-SMA line crosses over the 50-SMA line, in other words, the reading is considered bullish. Cardano’s price was seen above the 20-SMA, therefore signalling that buyers dominated price momentum in the market. Related Reading | Is The Bitcoin Bottom In? Here’s What SOPR Data Says Indicators and Rationale From the above-attached chart, technical indicators have painted a bullish bias for Cardano. The buying pressure preceded selling pressure. The Relative Strength Index, in accordance with the above reading also was parked above the 75-mark, therefore, in the overvalued and overbought zone MACD usually tells the current trend of the market. The indicator had undergone a bullish crossover, hence, it displayed green histograms at the time of writing. These green histograms were seen amplifying which suggested that ADA might continue to maintain its bullish outlook in the immediate trading sessions. As the asset was overbought, there are chances of a price pullback, in other words, prices could dip if buyers continued to outnumber sellers. In case of such an event, ADA’s next trading levels would rest at $1.16, $1.10 and finally at $1. Trading volume in the last few days closed in the green which meant that the bulls dominated the market. Yesterday, however, trading volume flashed a red bar which depicted the onset of slight bearishness. Cardano was last seen trading at the current price level on the 24th of January, marking a multi-week high for the altcoin.
