Crypto Market Sentiment Unchanged; Cardano Takes the Throne

Published

on

After finally re-entering the positive zone last Monday, crypto market sentiment is holding onto it tight, but without seeing a relevant change. Compared to last week’s 6.04, the average 7-day moving crypto market sentiment score (sentscore) for ten major cryptoassets is now 6.02, according to the market sentiment analysis service Omenics.

A small majority – or 6 out of 10 – coins have turned or remained red over the past seven days, with tether (USDT) taking the largest drop, of 8.2%. Notably, tether was last week’s winner. Its drop is followed by USD coin (USDC)’s 7.5%, while on the lower end we see litecoin (LTC)’s 3%, polkadot (DOT)’s 2.9%, chainlink (LINK)’s 1.8%, and lastly bitcoin (BTC)’s 0.1%.

On the opposite side is this week’s winner: cardano (ADA), with a rise to its sentscore of 7.9%. The next in line is 4.9% by binance coin (BNB), followed by ethereum (ETH)’s 1.4% and XRP’s 0.3%.

Therefore, bitcoin’s and ethereum’s scores remain unchanged over the past week.

Meanwhile, four of the ten coins are in the positive zone, these being BTC, ETH, DOT, and LINK, respectively. But others are not far behind, with the two stablecoins having the lowest scores, of 5.3. The rest sit within the 5.6-5.9 range.

Sentiment change among the top 10 coins*:
Interpreting the sentscore’s scale:
– 0 to 2.5: very negative
– 2 to 3.9: somewhat negative zone
– 4 to 5.9: neutral zone
– 6 to 7.49: somewhat positive zone
– 7.5 to 10: very positive zone.

Now, we’re taking a closer look at the situation in the past 24 hours alone. The 24h sentscore for these 10 coins combined is lower than the one recorded last Monday: 5.75 compared to 5.93 a week ago. All but two coins are red. Therefore, the winners of the day by default are bitcoin, the score of which is up by 5.1%, and binance coin, with 0.3%. The highest drop is 4.1% seen by LINK, with another four coins’ sentscores falling between 2% and 2.5%, two more dropping 1.1% each, and ETH decreasing the least – 0.1%. BTC and ETH are the only coins in the positive zone. And while USDT sits below 5, at 4.6, the rest have sentscores between 5.1 and 5.9.

Now, looking into the 25 coins outside of the top 10 list which are also tracked by Omenics, we find that the scores of 11 of them have dropped over the past week. The highest of these is WAVES’s 6.4%, followed by cosmos (ATOM)’s 4.5%. The lowest drop is REN’s 0.1%. Meanwhile, the top two places among the green coins are taken by yearn finance (YFI) with an increase to its sentscore of 8.5%, and maker (MKR) with 7.2%. The lowest rise is 0.3% by vechain (VET). Three coins are in the positive zone – algorand (ALGO), tron (TRX), and zcash (ZEC). WAVES and REN have scores of 4.6 and 4.9, respectively, while the rest sit in the 5-5.9 zone.

Cardano-Based DEX Announces Date of Testnet Launch

Published

on

A major Cardano-based decentralized finance protocol is about to launch its testnet

Cardano-based decentralized exchange SundaeSwap has announced that its testnet launch is going to take place on Dec. 5. 

Thousands of users will be able to try out one of the most notable projects on the Cardano network.  

The purpose of the testnet is to discover some bugs and inefficiencies ahead of the upcoming mainnet launch.

It will also help the Input Output team to adjust the performance metrics of the network so that it can work smoothly under heavy load:

Our testnet is the perfect opportunity to put the new parameters under load so they can assess performance and further raise these limits. 

Implementing such incremental changes will be crucial for making Cardano scalable enough for the decentralized finance sector.

In late September, SundaeSwap forged a partnership with Nervos, China’s top public blockchain.

Here’s What’s Next for Cardano, Shiba Inu, Terra and Two More Altcoins, According to Crypto Analyst

Published

on

A popular crypto strategist and trader is plotting what could be ahead for Cardano (ADA), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Terra (LUNA) and two other altcoins.

Pseudonymous cryoto analyst Altcoin Sherpa tells his 154,100 Twitter followers that he is short-term bullish on ADA after the smart contract platform managed to stay above support at $1.48.

“ADA: Not a bad place for a long. Support/resistance level, 0.50 Fibonacci level too. I still wouldn’t hodl (hold on for dear life) this though. It would be a swing trade.”

At time of writing, Cardano is trading at $1.56, down 2.85% in the last 24 hours.

Next up is popular meme coin Shiba Inu. According to the crypto strategist, he’s expecting SHIB to ignite a quick bounce before resuming its downtrend unless the Dogecoin competitor manages to consolidate around $0.000047.

“SHIB: Short-term bottom is probably in. Expecting some sort of lower high to form. If this consolidates at the 0.50 [Fibonacci level], a more explosive move will come (But it’s going to take a much longer time in my opinion).”

SHIB is currently exchanging hands at $0.000048.

Another coin on the trader’s list is decentralized finance (DeFi) payment network Terra, which Altcoin Sherpa says is poised to erupt to new record highs.

“LUNA: Still a high time frame bullish [market structure], send to all-time highs.”

The fourth coin on the analyst’s radar is the blockchain-based game ecosystem The Sandbox (SAND). Altcoin Sherpa maps out two potential scenarios for SAND after the coin printed a bearish lower high structure.

“SAND: My plans are below. Let’s see where this goes. In general, I personally think a lower high just got printed, and we’re going to go lower. If a higher low comes, we will enter some consolidation, and then I’m guessing another push higher.”

The last coin is Theta Network (THETA), a peer-to-peer distribution platform for video content. According to Altcoin Sherpa, THETA can launch a massive rally once it takes out resistance at $9.61.

“THETA: When this moves it will be explosive. It’s been ranging for quite some time, and I think that this one usually has its own market cycle. I would not buy this as an active trade though.”

Is Cardano Price Ready For Bullish Reversal? Traders Watch These Crucial levels

Published

on

ADA Price established a new high price of $3.08 two months ago. The altcoin has been struggling to keep up with its earlier stellar performances.

In November 2021, the Cardano price struggled. It began the month around $2 and then jumped more than 22% to a monthly high of $2.3766. It then plummeted 44.55 percent to $1.4235, a multi-month low.

Cardano Must Hold Critical Level

Cardano (ADA) must hold a key level to maintain its positive market structure, according to a well-known crypto strategist and trader.

Despite Cardano’s dramatic slide from its all-time high, crypto analyst Jason Pizzino assures his 242,000 YouTube subscribers in a new strategy session that the smart contract platform is still on a broadly positive trend. At the moment, the overall trend is still a huge bull market. 

If we broke the lows at approximately $0.90, he wouldn’t call it a bull market anymore, but at the moment, we’ve closed above the 50% [Fibonacci level], so it’s still going strong. [It’s trading at] $1.60, and the 50% is at $1.59, so it’s $0.01 higher, so there are just a few minor indicators there.

Cardano’s significant decrease this month, according to Pizzino, could signal the end of ADA’s multi-month corrective period.

“You can see how much, how quickly it starts to fall towards the end. And from this point, I am saying ‘potentially’ the end. I can’t say for sure it is, but it’s quite often that you get a very sharp move towards the end of the downtrend and then a reversal…I don’t see a reversal yet, but the first sign is there for me that the market has taken a sharper turn down.” 

According to public on-chain data, the number of active addresses on the Cardano ($ADA) network has lately increased from roughly 150,000 per day to over 480000, before plummeting back to 200,000. 

The data shared by Messari shows that when the price of the Cardano fell, the number of active addresses unexpectedly increased. At the time of writing, the altcoin is trading at $1.58 and has declined by 2.7 percent in the last 24 hours.
