Cardano Price Prediction – Cardano ADA Token is at the Verge of Falling Below the $0.0900 Level

This isn’t the first big news that Cardano is announcing this year. The blockchain platform has been doing well since the beginning of the year. Less than two months ago, they released the Shelley hardfork. This was the beginning of true decentralization for Cardano. The Cardano ADA token got a lot of hype ahead of the Shelley hardfork reaching a yearly high of $0.1550 before it started declining against the USD.

At the time of writing, the price of the token was $0.091244. This means that it is up by 0.58% against the USD and up by 1.43% against Bitcoin BTC. The trading volume over a 24 hour period was $1,101,528,532 and the market capitalization was $2,838,840,497. With the current market trend, it’s difficult to determine what will happen to the ADA token. Will it rise again ahead of the Voltaire phase or will the bears continue to prevail.
