Cardano: Is Too Good To Be True?

Today we’re going to look at one of the most promising projects in the New Year: Cardano. I’ll overview the fundamentals, and will also take a look at ADA’s price action versus the USD and BTC respectively.

Cardano (ADA) Overview

Cardano is a platform for decentralized applications founded by Charles Hoskinson, who was also involved in the creation of Ethereum. The network is still controlled by a handful of developers, but that’s expected to change as Cardano starts to decentralize next year to become more like IOTA. But unlike Ethereum, Cardano uses a proof-of-stake consensus protocol and a different programming language to solve the big problems in smart contract technology. Also, Cardano is also planning a self-funded governance system, similar to Dash, where users will be able to vote on the next developments for the blockchain ecosystem.

But is that too good to be true? Crypto Briefing’s recently published its first research on Cardano in a Digital Asset Report and Evaluation, or DARE. Although our analysts were very impressed by the Cardano team’s scientific approach to solving blockchain problems, they did find a few things to make you think twice.  You can read about that in the DARE report.

ADA's Price Action

Meanwhile, Cardano’s ADA’s price action has been similar to that of many other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin in the past year. It reached an all-time high in January 2018 and spent the rest of the year in the bear market. One interesting note is when you compare ADA’s price action versus the USD, to its value versus Bitcoin. There’s a slight difference between the two pairs.

Versus the USD, ADA’s value has already reached and surpassed below its previously held lowest price of 10 cents. In September 2018, it broke below this level and reached the all-time-low of three cents in December. With the most recent bullish wave, its price is attempting to recover, but it still has a hard Ichimoku cloud to cross over.
