Cardano – The Downtrend
After cardano posted $3.12 ATH, ADA’s showing has consistently been poor. The $3.12 level was last seen during the launch of the Alonzo contract. After that, since September of last year it has always posted a lower price than the previous month.
Investors were expecting that the launch of Alonzo would attract people to ADA. More interest in ADA, it was thought, would help push up its price. But this did not happen.
Of the six DeFi projects on the cardano chain, only four are active. Even of these , SundaeSwap dominates with 72% activity.
Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of InputOutput, however, believes that price is not important. He said that prices do tend to be volatile. It was instead important to focus on development. However, investors tend to look at the price and they cannot be convinced otherwise.
Analysts have been unable to figure out the reason for the poor performance of ADA. They think that ISPOs could have a contributory effect to the low prices. They believe that ISPOs prompt people to sell ADA and this leads to low prices for ADA.
Analysts and investors are confident that the once the new DeFi projects have settled, cardano will also begin to do well.
