On a longer timeframe, it was evident that ADA was in a consolidation phase, with the price oscillating between $0.2 and $0.3 in the last four months.
Where does ADA go next?
Interestingly, the ongoing trajectory was similar to the one seen during 2018-20, popular on-chain analyst Ali Martinez stated on X. He outlined two probable scenarios for ADA from this point forward, one bearish and the other bullish.
In the bearish scenario, a prolonged consolidation phase was predicted for ADA, with participants having to wait until 2024 for a breakout to the upside. This narrative was based on historical readings. Recall that the Covid-19 pandemic hit the market around the same time, preventing ADA from gaining bull strength.
On the other hand, the bullish idea suggested a breakout by December by ruling out the impact of unforeseen events like the Covid-19.

Whales giving conflicting signals
It made sense to examine other on-chain indicators to understand if they were supportive of ADA’s rally any time soon. The whale supply was a reliable tool in this regard.
According to Santiment, mixed signals were given by whale investors. While the cohort holding between 1,000-1 million ADA coins steadily added to their stacks in the last month, substantial outflows were seen from the group storing between 1 million-10 million coins.
Therefore, it was difficult to determine with conviction the impact whale transactions had on ADA’s price movement.
