IOHK is partnering with an innovation VC fund which invests in African blockchain companies wishing to build on Cardano

A press release shared with U.Today states that IOHK, the company behind the third-largest blockchain Cardano, is inking a partnership deal with a new VC fund in Africa. The fund plans to invest $6 million in local startups that want to build on the Cardano platform.

Africa desperate for blockchain-based innovation

The VC fund will select the most promising innovative blockchain projects that want to develop their products on Cardano, thus helping to spread DLT adoption across Africa and enabling the local legacy infrastructure to get on the same level as that used by the western world.

The fund, whose name the press release does not provide, is focused on blockchain companies only, since only they can give Africa innovative projects that will help its governments and companies to adopt next-gen technologies already being implemented in the West.

IOG’s role in supporting promising startups

IOG (Input Output Global), the R&D company behind Cardano, will take part in the selection process and ensure that the companies selected will receive the funds, the necessary education and other necessary support from the aforementioned fund.

IOG is already working in various parts of Africa to provide education assistance and to teach formal programming to local citizens. At the moment, IOG has a large base in Ethiopia and is working with five million students and teachers after partnering with the local government.

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.
