Cardano is going ahead of Solana

A few days ago, Solana gained upward momentum, which allowed the token to flip ADA to become the 7th largest crypto. However, SOL’s good days did not last long, as ADA was quick to reclaim its spot.

However, it was interesting to note that the latest flipping was more of a result of SOL’s downtrend than ADA’s performance. According to CoinMarketCap, SOL’s price declined by more than 5% in the last 24 hours, while ADA’s plummeted by 2%. At press time, ADA was trading at $0.3092 with a market capitalization of over $10.8 billion.

Though Cardano’s price action looked better than SOL’s, its on-chain metrics remain bearish. For instance, ADA’s volume plummeted sharply, reflecting a lower willingness of investors to trade the token.

Positive sentiment around the token also declined sharply last week. Additionally, after an increase, ADA’s 1-week price volatility registered a downtick, decreasing the chances of a sudden uptrend in price over the days to follow.
