The firm’s data shows HODLers have accumulated more in the summer of last year when the price of ADA traded between $1.5 and $1. The data shows that every time the price fell below the $1 mark, investors bought the dip. However, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, coupled with rising inflation, has seen the price of ADA plunge below that mark. Despite the drop, HODLers have kept on accumulating to now see their balances hit a multi-year high.
Interestingly, the #7 largest coin showcased a similar enthusiasm in its price. At the time of writing, ADA was trading at $0.89, with a fresh surge of 6% in the last 24 hours.
