ADA Drops to Last Place in the Top 10 Cryptocurrencies


ADA, the native blockchain token of the Cardano network, has dropped to 10th place among the cryptocurrencies with the largest capitalization. Today, according to CoinMarketCap, the capitalization of Cardano (ADA) is USD 20.7 billion.

On the one hand, this happened due to the success of such competitors as:
→ Dogecoin (DOGE) with a capitalization of USD 27.1 billion, approximately +108% since the beginning of the year;
→ Toncoin (TON) with a capitalization of USD 23.7 billion, approximately +193% since the beginning of the year.

On the other hand, the ADA/USD rate behaves weaker than other cryptocurrencies. Year to date, it has dropped by several percent since January 1, 2024. And this is against the background of a bull market, which should greatly confuse investors.

Will Cardano (ADA) be able to strengthen its position in the top 10 cryptocurrencies?

Bulls' hopes may be tied to the approaching Chang update (expected in the second quarter of 2024), which will implement the concept of a self-governing community on the blockchain by introducing delegate representatives (DReps) and community voting to approve the first draft of the Cardano Constitution.

Technical analysis of the ADA/USD chart today shows more bearish signals:
→ the price of ADA/USD moves within the ascending channel;
→ the important level USD 0.6800 again acts as resistance (as shown by the arrows);
→ the price tried to push off from the lower border of the channel, but was unable to gain a foothold above the psychological level of USD 0.6000.

The level of USD 0.5700, reinforced by the lower border of the channel, acts as the most important support in such a situation - its breakdown will open the way to the psychological level of 0.5000 and the minimum of the year in the area of 0.4500.

Given the failure of the ADA/USD price to follow trends in the cryptocurrency bull market in early 2024, such a scenario looks likely.
