Cardano price is struggling to hold its place on the charts as investors focus on booking short- term profits. The eighth-largest cryptocurrency trades at $0.273 at the time of writing, boasting $9.4 billion in market capitalization. An ongoing retracement follows a rejection from $0.278 and shows that a huge chunk of the $225 million trading volume in 24 hours is bearish.
Some investors could embrace this bearish correction as an opportunity to buy more ADA ahead of another breakout, first above $0.30 and later toward $1. The Input Output Global (IOG), the organization in charge of developing the Cardano Blockchain is working on several releases and software upgrades for 2023 which may positively influence ADA price.
Investors have high expectations for the Cardano ecosystem this year. Some key elements promised to the community in 2021 and 2022 could see the light of day over the next 12 months.
The introduction of stablecoins’ support on the Cardano blockchain is one of these important software upgrades. Investors believe having stablecoins on Cardano will improve the network’s standing, especially in decentralized finance (DeFi).
Two stablecoins are anticipated to debut on the Cardano blockchain for the first in Q1 2023. USDA is one these tokens, backed by the world’s strongest currency, the United States dollar. However, to ensure parity is sustained, developers tap other fiat assets and adopt some ADA benefits such as network efficiency.
Djed is the second stablecoin, created in collaboration with Coti. The stablecoin has been designed in such a way that it holds its peg to the US dollar through a Cardano-based smart contract.
Oracles on Cardano
Cardano developers hope the introduction of oracles would improve the network by allowing the transfer of data both on-chain and off-chain. Chainlink (LINK) is the most significant oracle platform in the crypto market. It enables seamless management of smart contracts while allowing them to function at full capacity.
Oracles on Cardano would enable key activities like atomic swaps, pricing as mutually agreed oracle data and cross-chain liquidity pools. With this upgrade, Cardano would be at par to complete on a level ground with Ethereum.
Meet Hydra – A Layer 2 Solution for Cardano
Following the release of the vast Vasil hard fork, the Cardano blockchain made significant steps toward scalability. Over the years, congestion on Bitcoin and Ethereum networks have shown how important it is to have a network that is scalable for the practicality of everyday life.
Cardano’s Hydra, a Layer 2 solution would see transaction speed increase significantly while not compromising on a high throughput and low transfer fees. Hydra Head will pave the way for developers to build intricate protocols on the blockchain.
Investor interest in Cardano would improve profoundly in 2023 as developers bring these three software upgrades to life. As interest peaks, so will the value of ADA which is expected to rise to $1 in the coming weeks, perhaps months. Some analysts believe that Cardano price could against all odds, rise to tag its all-time high of $3.09 in September 2022.
Cardano Price Slows Down Its Uptrend, Where to Next?
Cardano price is struggling to find a higher support after it got reject from resistance at $0.278 as highlighted by the 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA). The first tentative support holds the ground at $0.270, where a recovery might come into play.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator reveals buyers could still have the upper hand; hence investors should refrain from selling due to the fear of being caught up in a lengthy bull trap.
Notice the position of the MACD (line in blue) above the signal line (in red) and in the positive region. Moreover, the histograms in the indicator have stayed green since December 30 implying that the path with the lease resistance is to the upside.
It is worth mentioning that Cardano price holds above two major moving averages; the 50-day EMA (in red at $0.259) and the 100-day EMA (in blue at $0.261), which adds credence to its bullish prospects.
The same four-hour time frame chart recently brought to light the formation of an inverted head-and-shoulders (H & S) pattern with an 11.6% breakout target. As the name suggests, this is a bullish pattern with a head and shoulders formation, only that it is upside down.
When trading this pattern, the trader places a long entry above the neckline resistance. The take-profit target equals the distance between the head and the neckline extrapolated from the breakout point.
In ADA’s case, the breakout journey started earlier this week, but stalled at the 200-day EMA. Therefore, bulls need to push Cardano price above this hurdle to reignite the uptrend to $0.292.
Cardano’s bullish leg could stretch further to the north as long as buyers reclaim the lost key support at $0.30. However, failure to close the day above the 200-day EMA would call for more short positions, which would in turn, push Cardano price on a downhill trip to $0.260 and $0.24, in this order.
