ADA is the native token of Cardano – an open-source layer-1 network that aims to build smart contracts and applications on its network. It is among the top 10 cryptocurrencies currently. ADA, like most altcoins, has been reeling under the effects of the bear market.
It has lost almost 80 per cent of its value since its September 2021 all-time high of over $3. But as Bitcoin’s run of consecutive red weeks ended last week, ADA seems to have gained appetite too. ADA is currently trading at $0.64, up over 13% in the last seven days.
ADA successfully broke above its long term trendline resistance at $0.60 after several attempts. It is now exhibiting a changed market structure, with higher highs and higher lows.
To sustain its momentum, ADA needs to break the psychological resistance level of $0.70 (which is also situated around the .618 Fibonacci retracement level of its May drop), before it can move further. In case of a failure to reclaim highs, we could see ADA testing support at $0.60 and $0.52 next.
Cardano will soon undergo its next hard fork ‘Vasil’ later in the month. The anticipation and speculations around the hard fork could prove to be a possible trigger for a rally.
Resistance: $0.66, $0.70, $0.79
Support: $0.60, $052
