Cardano: ‘It’s happening!’ Alonzo upgrade is scheduled for…

Published

on

Cardano’s native token ADA rallied on the back of the Alonzo Purple announcement. The highly anticipated Hard Fork Combinator [HFC] event was announced for 12th September 2021, by Nigel Hemsley, Head of Delivery & Products at IOHK. With Alonzo Purple set in motion, ADA price has been reflecting the confidence of the traders.

During a video stream, Hemsley noted that the updates till now were functioning well and the network looks resilient enough. The nodes were up and running, people were staking and making use of the smart contracts on the testnet. With the previous updates now stabilized on the testnet, IOHK announced the launch of Alonzo Purple as it tweeted, “It’s happening.”

This update plays an essential role in the Cardano ecosystem as it will add smart contracts capability and decentralized finance [DeFi] protocols to the network. It will also boost concepts of tokenization and non-fungible token ideas. After the update, it was also suggested that the update will allow users to leverage ERC20 tokens on the Cardano chain.

As the update gets rolling, the team noted that their partners and clients were already working on decentralized applications or DApps and will be able to complete it as the HFC event is concluded.

The momentum of the Alonzo Purple announcement and oncoming developments within the Cardano ecosystem boosted investors’ bullishness. This resulted in the asset’s value surging by 72% in August alone. This rally pushed the price of the digital asset from $1.25 to $2.15 and at the time of press, ADA was trading at $2.17.

Red Alert In Crypto Space, Cardano Price Trembling Yet Remains Bullish

Published

on

Crypto space witnessed a replica of a May crash but with lesser intensity. Bitcoin price is hovering between $53,800 and $54,400. However, some assets stood strong above their support levels like Ethereum & Cardano.

Despite the bearish trend prevailing in the short-term, yet the ADA price still remains bullish in the higher time frame. 

Cardano price maintained a substantial downtrend ever since the beginning of the present trading day. In the daily chart, the asset has formed a double-bottom and was expected to surge high slicing through the neckline.

But the asset was rejected at the neckline in the last few hours of the last trading day. ADA price dumped nearly 15% ever since then, however, it’s also attempting to rebound. 

3rd Cardano sell-off is going on since the early hours of the Asian trade. The dump dragged the price much below the 200-day MA and extended the gap between the strong resistance levels around $2.5.

A major reason for the sell-off is speculated to be the pandemic FUD circulating in space. However, the retracement is expected to be well in place as more than 70% of ADA is staked and keeping only 30% in circulation is pretty bullish for the asset. 

Exactly a year ago, the Cardano price was around $0.03 and the asset was surrounded by immense FUD. However, the ADA price didn’t stop then and may not stop now also.

Collectively the asset maintains a substantial rally ever since it faced an extreme sell-off in September. Yet the strong support levels still reside around $1 and the asset is still bullish until the asset sustains above these levels.

Cardano on the edge: Why and what it needs to make a recovery

Published

on

These are not the best of times for Cardano. While the asset may have maintained its sixth position in the rankings with a market cap of $49.1 billion, it is consistently reaching new lows over the past week, and at present, it is possibly at the last key support before an evident bearish reversal.

This article will draw estimates around the current price movement of Cardano and explain why it should recover moving forward to avoid further corrections.

Red-Flags for Cardano

While a sense of optimism is appreciated for one of the top performers of 2021, ADA’s price structure is anything but ideal. Earlier in November, the asset finally breached above its long-term ascending channel pattern but it was followed by immediate invalidation. It was a sign of things to come for the asset, and Cardano barely recovered ever since.

Now, at press time, the asset has finally dropped under the pattern in a bearish direction, eliminating any chance of immediate bullish recovery. $1.80 was an important high-time frame support, which did not hold ADA‘s crashing valuation.

The importance of $1.80 can be understood from the Fibonacci levels. $1.80 marked the 0.618 Fibonacci level, which fundamentally is the last support during a correction phase of a bull run.

During the Q3 correction period, Cardano dropped down to $1.00 which was the Fib level of 0.618 for a market top of $2.47. The same situation hasn’t panned out this time, with the market falling sharply beyond the retracement levels.

Is there still hope?

Well, never say never in crypto trend, and volatility could swing in Cardanos’ favor as well. According to data from intotheblock.com, 4.93 billion ADA currently resides between the range of $1.34-$1.63 amongst 394,ooo addresses. While this suggests that ADA may drop down to as low as $1.40 in the next few days, the flip side is, it can recovery strongly as well.

However, failure to do so may see Cardano enter price discovery between $1.11 and $1.34. Close to 8.37 billion ADA resides in that range distributed amoong ~590,000 addresses. The situation is definitely on the edge for Cardano, and major sentiment indicates a bearish outlook.
