Cardano Price Misses Fireworks On Its Birthday, How Far Will ADA Fall?

The Cardano price has followed the general sentiment across the market and traded to the downside over the past week. The cryptocurrency lost its spot as one of the valuables in the crypto top 10 by market capitalization and could be poised to see further losses. Related Reading: Ep01- Dr. Ruja – Companion Guide For BBC’s “The Missing Cryptoqueen” Podcast At the time of writing, the Cardano price trades at $0.43 with a 6% loss and 2% loss over the last 24 hours and 7 days, respectively. As ADA trades to the downside, some major cryptocurrencies have been able to score profits and are showing strength against the general market sentiment. Charles Hoskinson Celebrates, While The Cardano Price Stalls The Cardano price weakness is more evident as the cryptocurrency failed to react to recent events that were prompting bullish expectations for market participants. First, is the Ethereum “Merge”, the event that completed its transition to Proof-of-Stake (PoS). “The Merge” failed to provide bullish momentum for PoS cryptocurrencies, such as Cardano. In step, Proof-of-Work (PoW), such as Ravencoin (RVN) and Ethereum Classic (ETC), benefited from the anticipated post-Merge rally. In addition, the Cardano network was preparing to deploy a major update on its mainnet via a Hard Fork Combinator (HFC) event called “Vasil”. One of its most important milestones since the implementation of smart contract capabilities with HFC “Alonzo”, the recent upgrade was overlooked by market participants. Across social media, the Cardano community celebrated the network’s fifth birthday. Its inventor Charles Hoskinson posted a celebration video via Twitter, but again this event failed to provide bullish momentum for ADA’s price action. Hoskinson said the following on the network’s growth since its inception: There are over 3,228 smart contracts to our knowledge that have been deployed on Cardano, and as of September 15, 2022, 50 million transactions. Where we regularly are in the top three to top five of transaction volume on a daily basis and usually are number one for GitHub commits (…) Who Is Contributing With The Selling Pressure For The Cardano Price? The Cardano price has been stuck in its current levels forming a channel with a bottom at $0.43 and a top at $0.51. This channel was created in late August, and if bulls can defend these levels, ADA’s price might enjoy a late birthday rally and aim for $0.51 or beyond if the momentum allows it. However, with the crypto market showing weakness and with current macro conditions proving unfavorable for risk-on assets, ADA might break out of this channel and trend lower. In order to prevent this scenario, the Cardano price must stay above $0.41. Related Reading: Fantom Surprises With 5% Rally In Last 24 Hours – More Gains Ahead? Data from Material Indicators shows that investors with selling orders of $1,000 to $10,000 have been dumping ADA over the past weeks. In addition, the Cardano price has seen low buying pressure from other investors. This status quo must change to support the price and aim for $0.51.

Cardano Creator Charles Hoskinson Calls CBDCs the ‘Single Most Dangerous Innovation’ – Here’s Why

Cardano (ADA) creator Charles Hoskinson is not a fan of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and even sees them as a threat. In a recent interview with Cheeky Crypto, Hoskinson argues that CBDCs are the “single-most dangerous innovation that we’ve ever seen in monetary policy.” “CBDCs… they’re not crypto.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price To Reach In Millions By 2030, Says Analyst

A well-known, conservative crypto analyst gave a bullish commentary about the price of Bitcoin. According to a YouTuber, further proliferation of the digital asset will cause a steady rise of BTC to a million dollars. On a YouTube video, InvestAnswers signaled that BTC is approaching diminishing returns. Diminishing return is when an asset gets to a point where increased future investment yields less profit. The crypto analyst said that BTC yields investors five times less profit every new market cycle in comparison to the previous one.  Related Reading: Bitcoin Price Crashes To $19,000, But Stays Strong Against Other Assets Bitcoin Primed To Trade For Millions Of Dollars By The Year 2030 However, the analysts gave a different view on bitcoin that was in contrast with the apparent diminishing return of the digital asset. They cited that the value of networks grows as the number of participants increases, according to Metcalfe’s law.  If Bitcoin follows the trend of disruptive networks like cellphones and the internet, applying Metcalfe’s law projects a bullish case scenario for bitcoin. In that vein, a modest consideration of BTC’s future price will put it at over a million dollars by the year 2030.  The host made it clear that this prediction was strictly based on the scientific possibility that Metcalfe’s law holds for the number one cryptocurrency in the world. It is, however, not subject to wishful thinking. According to the analyst, the bitcoin digital assets’ adoption follows the historical patterns of preceding technologies.  Quite like InvestAnswers, there have been several sightings of multiple users across the internet, supporting the future appreciation of bitcoin’s price.  Crypto Market Cycles  Since speculation says bitcoin is still bullish in the long run, many are looking forward to taking advantage of the next market cycle.  The market cycle explains the ebb and flow of a market. Usually, new markets have a slow start. They pick off from a point where people show little or no interest. But as interest in the asset starts to increase, demand rises, and its price starts to inflate as a result. A complete market cycle has four phases: accumulation, markup, distribution, and markdown.  Related Reading: Do Kwon Statement: A Possible Trigger For Terra Tokens Price Surge As mounting interest takes the price of the commodity to new highs, it gets to a point where it eventually peaks. Investors become satisfied with their returns. And then sell off the asset causing tremendous sell pressure. Therefore, the price begins to drop. After one market cycle ends, the next begins shortly. Bitcoin Price Action  Bitcoin has roughly ranged between $22,000 and $18,000 for most of the 3rd quarter of this year. Investors are keenly eyeing the condition of the broader market as a go-ahead to pump funds into risky assets like bitcoin. Featured image from Pixabay and chart from TradingView.com

If price can tag the red line, we could have a low timeframe reversal. A bullish divergence on the Relative Strength Index and LMACD potentially back up this bullish signal.

Weekly momentum has also fallen to the same level where past reversals formed. A bullish crossover might be all it takes to confirm a bottom is already in.

However, momentum has been making lower highs suggesting that the underlying strength is weakening. The DXY dollar currency index is also potentially forming an ending diagonal, which looks much like a rising wedge. These potentially bearish signals could create a reversal in the dollar that allows Bitcoin to bounce. A comparison with Bitcoin offers a potential example of what might happen in the dollar.
