According to a recent blog post by crypto analytics firm Santiment, so-called whale transactions on the Cardano blockchain have seen a massive spike since early February. Over the past few weeks, the number of ADA transactions worth at least $100,000 has frequently reached 2,000 per day. In the last few months leading up to February, the number of transactions worth more than $100,000 per day rarely exceeded 500.

The spike in ADA whale transactions comes at an interesting time for Cardano. First, the crypto market rally that began earlier this year has, since Wednesday 22n/a of February, has lifted the eighth largest cryptocurrency in the world by more than 50% since the start of the year. Meanwhile, a number of exciting milestones in the development of the Cardano ecosystem have been achieved, including the launch of the highly anticipated USD-pegged and oversized algorithmic stablecoin Djed, which is touted as likely to attract new investors. capital inflows to the Cardano ecosystem as decentralized finance (DeFi) investors. look for new ways to generate returns.

Cardano Price Prediction – What’s Next for ADA?

ADA/USD last changed hands around $0.38 per token, now down around 10% from previous monthly highs of $0.42. Cardano, which is now threatening to break back below its 200-day moving average (DMA), faces selling pressure amid a broad decline in crypto prices on Wednesday.

Crypto takes a cue from US stocks, which are falling amid 1) fresh evidence of an impending earnings slump following the latest earnings from Walmart and Home Depot and 2) lingering concerns that equity investors had under- estimated the extent to which the Fed will continue with interest rate hikes this year.

ADA bears will now consider a test of the 50DMA in the $0.36 range, which also coincides quite nicely with this year’s uptrend. If Cardano can find support here, it has a good chance of bouncing back to recent highs. Otherwise, a test of a recent double bottom just below $0.3450 is likely.

Is it the right time to buy Cardano?

“I would choose ADA for now,” said Guy Turner, the creator of the hugely popular crypto news YouTube channel Coin Bureau in a recent interview with The Daily Hodl.
