Cardano: ADA’s price flies over $ 3

Published

on

In the past 24 hours, the Cardano (ADA) cryptocurrency has been trading for a price in the range of $ 2.83 to $ 3.06 and has managed to place third among cryptocurrencies , naturally after Bitcoin and Ethereum, thus registering the its all-time high.

What is Cardano

Cardano (ADA) is an open-source blockchain platform designed on a proof-of-stake consensus protocol that validates transactions without high energy costs. The ADA tokens have been named in honor of Augusta Ada Byron , or Ada Lovelace, known for having practically laid the foundations of information technology. She was the daughter of the poet Lord Byron and is considered the first computer programmer .

Cardano is the cryptocurrency by capitalization after Bitcoin and Ethereum

The price of Cardano (ADA)

The price of Cardano has risen nearly 20% in the past 7 days. At the time of publication , Cardano’s price is $ 2.99 and it has a market cap of $ 96 billion.

This change pushes the Cardano’s market cap to $ 98.90 billion, making it 4.32% of the total cryptocurrency market. At its highest , the Cardano market peaked at $ 94.11 billion.

Why ADA is going up

The successful launch of smart contracts on the Cardano blockchain testnet, the Alonzo hard fork, led to the break in the price level .

After the smart contract functionality is successfully implemented on Cardano, the Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain will be on par with platforms such as Ethereum that already support the creation and use of decentralized applications.

Alonzo’s update is expected to introduce numerous changes to the Cardano blockchain, with the availability of smart contracts, it can accommodate a wide range of decentralized finance (DeFi) and NFT protocols .

ADA is also up because it will be listed on several crypto exchanges in Japan .

Chief Investment Officer of investment firm Arcane Asset, Eric Wall, has been criticized multiple times by the community and Cardano supporters for being considered too skeptical about the possible rise of ADA.

According to software engineer, even the smart launch contract of September 12 of Cardano will be disappointing in terms of possible results to be obtained. This is because it will not be the launch of a finished product but of a financial instrument with limits .

Eric Wall concludes with a provocative and harsh tweet towards the Cardano community, implying that his analyzes are objective and not influenced by personal preferences.

It’s going to be the BIGGEST, BADDEST Cardano event there ever was! 40 Community-led events 32 Countries, 60 Community hosts, and 7 Main summit events.

For those who are new, Cardano is an excellent blockchain technology that serves as the face of a secure and sustainable blockchain facilitating ground-breaking use cases.

Cardano focuses on tackling issues faced during blockchain adoption on a large scale. Cardano seeks to reign issues like scalability, interoperability, and sustainability through the development of design principles and engineering best practices.

The world comes together on Cardano.  One week from now, IOHK and Cardano teams and the global community will gather for the biggest blockchain event ever for a mix of virtual and live events from around the world.

Initially Cardano was able to deal with 10 transactions per second.  However with Hydra Layer 2 scaling arrangement Cardano will be able to handle more than 1,000,000 transactions per second.

Ouroboros a chain-based PoS protocol relies on randomly chosen leaders to approve blocks. Just like other blockchains, the node that adds the next block receives a reward for its efforts.

Cardano is energy efficient, Cardano: 6-gigawatt hours; Bitcoin: 130 terawatt-hours; Ethereum: 50 terawatt-hours.

Community response:  Pump Cardano. I am so excited about it.

Following the latest ‘non-event,’ what next on the price front for Cardano

Published

on

It has been almost two weeks since Alonzo went live on Cardano’s network. The narrative before the hard fork was largely conformist, one that proclaimed ADA’s price would soon surge to new heights after its release.

The hard fork, however, turned out to be a ‘non-event‘ and did not impact the token’s price much. In fact, in the days that followed the release, ADA’s price dropped to as low as $1.98. Ergo, one may argue that ADA, just like the market’s other tokens, became a victim of the pessimistic broader market trend.

Well, the same holds true to a certain extent, particularly because ADA’s dependency on the market’s other cryptos has increased over the last couple of weeks. In fact, it now shares a correlation of 0.78 and 0.74 with Bitcoin and Ethereum, respectively.

Apart from this, the deteriorating state of on-chain metrics has created a cascading effect on the alt’s price. So, unless and until the same improves, a price trend reversal seems to be out of the question.

State of the network

Well, inspecting the state of the network would give us a fair idea about the direction in which Cardano is heading. As per data from CardanoScan, the transaction count on the network has been quite stagnant over the last couple of days, despite crossing 111k on 17 September.

This, quite obviously, indicates that not many people have been using Cardano’s network of late.

What’s more, the average transfer value too has been spending more time towards the lows of late. Notably, the same witnessed a massive spike during the initial few days of September but subjected itself to a freefall right after that. The active address ratio as well, for that matter, has been on the decline. The same fell from 9.17% to 2.45% over the period between 7 to 24 September.

By and large, this implies that users who have been active are merely trying and testing the network at this stage. One can argue then that the Cardano market is devoid of some solid momentum at the moment.

However, there’s a silver lining to this scenario too.

All’s not lost

As far as Q4 is concerned, a host of launches are already lined up for Cardano. The introduction of Cardax DEX would allow users to trade ADA for other native tokens. Notably, the exchange would have its own utility token – CDX. Further, GREED is also set to launch as one of the blockchain’s first tokens.

Additionally, right from Liqwid, an open-source and non-custodial liquidity protocol, to SingularityNET, a platform that lets users create and monetize AI services at scale, several noteworthy projects are set to make use of Cardano’s ecosystem in the coming weeks. In effect, a new set of users would be using the blockchain.

Thus, unless and until Cardano’s adoption hastens up, a prominent trend reversal seems to be unlikely. In effect, only if the aforementioned future events actually end up contributing to the network’s growth, it would make sense to anticipate a direct impact on the altcoin’s price.

Thus, it’d be interesting to see if the ‘non-event’ tradition continues or Cardano successfully frees itself from the shackles of the same.

Cardano joins forces with Chainlink to provide extra support for developers building smart contracts by integrating oracles

The Cardano team has just published a blog post, announcing a partnership with Chainlink that will result in integrating Chainlink’s oracles. These will help developers build smart contracts for Cardano DeFi apps.

The collaboration was announced during the Cardano Summit today, on September 25.

Cardano teams up with Chainlink

Chainlink’s oracle networks supply data to blockchain networks and allow smart contracts to work with results of elections, sports statistics, crypto rates, etc. They can also operate weather data (Chainlink is now working with some fintech companies that are bringing parametric insurance to South Africa) and other types of data as well.

Chainlink oracles help run hybrid smart contracts on any DLT network. Presently, Chainlink secures billions of USD in DeFi apps, gaming apps, platforms related to insurance and other top industries.

Chainlink to power Cardano smart contracts

The integration of these oracles in the Cardano DLT will allow dev teams to supply institutional-grade data provided by Chainlink into their smart contracts. The oracles will support prediction apps that deal with sports data, weather data necessary for parametric insurance apps; they will be applied in the sphere of gaming and digital collectibles, like NFTs, etc, via multiple partnerships.

Founder of IOHK Charles Hoskinson stated that Chainlink oracles are necessary for advanced smart contracts and they will provide real-world data to the Cardano blockchain. He emphasized that Cardano intends to provide developers with best tools for creating solutions that will be of actual use.

Hoskinson believes that Chainlink oracle integration will also provide a perfect foundation for the DeFi ecosystem on Cardano.
