Cardano will never lack funding to work on its technical development
Yesterday, the ETCDEV announced that they were closing down due to funding issues. The sustained crypto bear run has taken a toll on their finances. But Ethereum Classic (ETC) is not the only crypto that is facing difficulties. Many other teams are under pressure since prices for most altcoins are down by over 90%. One altcoin that stands out is Cardano (ADA). Though it is still a work in progress, Cardano (ADA) is assured of funding stability until the IOHK team completes its work in 2020. In one of his AMA’s in August, Charles Hoskinson was asked about the issue of funding. To this, he answered,
“We are very smart with the bitcoin that we got. We divested it and are fully funded until 2020.”
This means that Cardano’s project funding is in no way affected by the crypto market bear of 2018. As such, Cardano investors can rest easy knowing that Charles and his team are fully focused on the tech, and don’t have to deal with any inconveniences that may arise out of lack of funding.
The best part is that even after the roadmap is complete and the IOHK contract comes to an end, Cardano is well positioned to sustain all future technical developments with ease. That’s because, as per the Cardano Monetary Policy, it will have a treasury that will be funded with Cardano (ADA) transaction fees. Below is a more detailed explanation of the Cardano treasury as presented in the Cardano monetary policy.
Cardano will have a treasury going forward. This treasury will be endowed via some portion (yet to be defined), of newly-minted Ada and transaction fees. The treasury will be governed by Ada holders.
MINIMAL FEE (CURRENT CALCULATION)
Note: Fee calculations and incentives are areas that are currently being researched and their development is in progress.
1 ADA = 1,000,000 Lovelaces
1 Lovelace = 1/1,000,000 Ada
Ada has six decimal places.
1.000000 = 1 ADA
This treasury makes Cardano (ADA) a self-sustaining eco-system that will always remain functional in spite of market cycles that will always recur, with bull and bear cycles.
As such, Cardano investors can judge this project fully on the basis of its potential for adoption. On this front, Cardano (ADA) is well positioned for growth too. That’s because Cardano is a solution to most of the problems affecting most blockchain platforms today.
For instance, Cardano takes care of the inefficiencies of Proof-of-Work. It solves this through Ouroboros, a revolutionary Proof-of-Stake algorithm that gives Cardano the security of Bitcoin (BTC) while at the same time eliminating the need for huge energy requirements that come with POW mining. Cardano also solves the problem of scalability, since it is designed for scalability from the ground up. This places it in a good position for growth in the long-run. This is a high-value project that is set for growth in coming years.
Charles once said that he is building Cardano to be a trillion dollar crypto. With its technical capabilities, there is no reason why Cardano can’t hit this valuation in the next decade.
Cardano Investors Sell Amid Bitcoin Drop, ADA Down 32%
- Cardano (ADA) sheds 32.7 percent week-to-date
- Emurgo releases Yoroi update
There’s a new Yoroi wallet update introducing further improvements like the hide balance option. However, that is not enough to support ADA as prices are down 32.7 percent.
Cardano Price Analysis
Research and peer-reviewing of code underpin Cardano. Promising to dislodge Ethereum as the king of smart contracting, the Cardano development team is after perfecting their system.
Delaying in phase transition, their leaning on quality and satisfactory experimentation is top priority. Presently, Shelly test net is live. While developers nitpick code, searching for vulnerabilities, the transition from centralization to decentralization is exciting for ADA supporters.
If anything, this phase shift is critical as it could set the ground for a possible listing at Coinbase. Should that be the case, then surely, the native coin, ADA, may benefit from the famed but fading “Coinbase Effect.”
Then again, there is Yoroi’s update. Aside from guaranteed security, since it is running from a sandbox with APIs to Fasttrack developments, the new upgrade introduces several enhancements to the web wallet. Some of them include:
- Ability to add Cardano payment URLs.
- A hide balance option
- New warning message if the connection to our server fails
- Indonesian language
Bullish in the long run, bears are merciless. In two short weeks, ADA is down 32.7 percent in the last week along. Trading within a bullish breakout pattern, buyers have a chance at least in the medium term.
For now, bears are in a pole position following the breach and close below the main support line at 6 cents. Note that the move is in response to the over-extension of the week ending April 7 and confirmation of sell pressure of the better part of 2018.
In that case, like most digital assets, every high is technically a selling opportunity with an awareness that ADA, if BTC continues to drop, could register new lows in a bear trend continuation phase.
However, that is subject primarily to the strength of breakouts driving prices below 3.5 cents and later Dec 2018 lows.
As aforementioned, a better gauge for sellers depend on participation in upcoming weeks. If there is a spike, surpassing those of the week ending June 30 at 2 billion, odds are bears of 2018 will flow back. As a result, ADA will likely close below 3 cents, more than halving from June 2019 peaks.

Cardano (ADA) Gathers Momentum Moves Up 3% With More Gains To Come, How High Will Cardano ADA Go?
Cardano News Today – Cardano ADA, just like every other cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap, has been on a roller coaster ride for the past few weeks. Ever since May when the price of Cardano touched the $0.1000 level in an epic bull run, it has been moving lower against the USD and is now almost half of that price. In our last Cardano price prediction and Cardano News, we noted that if the price of Cardano can find the bullish momentum to rise above the $0.070 level, it will reach higher levels near-term. Unfortunately, the price of Cardano hasn’t been able to surge above this level irrespective of the anticipation surrounding the activation of Cardano Shelley on the mainnet.
Cardano News Today – Cardano Shelley Update – Cardano Price Prediction 2019 – Cardano Picks Up But Remains Far From Recent Highs
The team behind Cardano has been focusing on emerging markets in a bid to ensure global adoption of the Cardano blockchain and the ADA token. While their primary focus is developing countries, they are well known in the developed world and the Cardano blockchain is seen as a worthy competitor for Ethereum. The Cardano Shelley upgrade was supposed to be the nail on the coffin but as the date for the Shelly activation grows nearer and the price of ADA is still struggling, it’s becoming clear that the Cardano Shelley upgrade may not have any significant effect on the price of ADA.
Cardano (ADA) Price Today – ADA / USD
In the beginning of trading today, the price of Cardano ADA surged against the USD along with the price of Bitcoin and many other altcoins in the market. Unfortunately, the spike didn’t last long. At the time, Cardano price prediction on Cardano news today was that ADA was going to test the $0.060 level before the end of trading today. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen. Rather than maintain the upward rise, the price of Cardano ADA started to fall against the USD. Not being able to stay above the $0.060 level dashed the hopes of reaching $0.070 anytime soon. Notwithstanding, the price of Cardano ADA performed better this morning than or did yesterday.
Meanwhile, on the other end of the continuum, Cardano Foundation announced that its Chairperson, Nathan Kaiser, had an interview with Eric MA. The details of the interview was posted on Twitter for everyone to see. It was about CoinMarketCap’s vision for the Asian cryptocurrency and blockchain market.
Cardano News Today – Cardano Price Prediction 2019 – ADA Price Analysis – Current Price Of Cardano ADA
At the time of writing, the price of Cardano ADA was $0.056716. This means that it is down by 3.75% against the USD and down by 4.18% against the price of BTC. The trading volume over a 24 hour period is $91,002,939 and the market capitalization is $1,470,480,478. It picked up from $0.055 in the beginning of trading today and went as high as $0.057 before the bears showed up and drove the price down. If the bulls are able to regain momentum, the price may move as high as $0.058 against the USD near-term.
The current price of Cardano ADA is strongly related to the price action of Bitcoin. In fact, the entire altcoin market is following the lead of their big brother, Bitcoin. So, until the price of BTC starts recovering, there is no way to determine when Cardano will recover.
