How has ADA been?

2023 began on a great note for ADA as its price rallied by more than 50% in the last month. According to CoinMarketCap, at the time of writing, it was trading at $0.3998 with a market capitalization of over $13.8 billion.

ADA’s daily chart also revealed quite a few interesting happenings. For instance, despite registering over 50% gains, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon revealed that the bears were leading the market for most of the weeks in January.

The bulls gained the upper hand on 13 January as the data showed a bullish crossover. Surprisingly, the MACD has something else to say, as it revealed that both sides had their share of the market advantage.

ADA’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) during the early days of this year remained pretty low and even entered an oversold position. Following that, it gained momentum and increased significantly as the price of ADA rose.

Metrics at play

Cardano’s performance on the metrics front was quite dynamic. ADA’s MVRV Ratio increased substantially, thanks to the bull run.

Over the last month, ADA developers have been stepping up their game with new updates and partnerships. This was also evident by looking at the network’s development activity, which registered an increase.

The number of daily active addresses remained consistent, but during the last few days, it spiked. On the contrary, ADA’s velocity remained relatively low over the last month, which was a negative signal.

However, during the last few days, the velocity went up. Unusually, while ADA’s price increased, its daily on-chain transaction volume in profit registered a decline.
