Despite Cardano’s expansions, why ADA has stalled at $0.45

Continuous deployment on the Cardano network has not lifted ADA yet, but it can soon.

Despite Cardano’s expansions, why ADA has stalled at $0.45

  • New projects launched on Cardano triggered an increase in development activity.
  • ADA’s slight increase helped the supply in profit rise to 18.88 billion.

In April, five projects were launched on the Cardano [ADA] blockchain, InputOutput revealed in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

According to the research and engineering arm of the blockchain, some deployed new scripts. However, others worked on deploying new tokens and some released new versions to improve transactions on the network.

The post disclosed that,

“The number of token policies increased by 3,875, and the number of minted native tokens increased by 100k. Plutus scripts grew by 2,656 to a total of 42,703. The total number of transactions increased by 1.6 million over the last month”

Eight more to come

Apart from the already-launched project, InputOutput noted that there were another eight set to ship in a few weeks. Every week, Cardano releases a register showing the updates that happened on its ecosystem.

From AMBCrypto’s findings, the project has been consistent in polishing its network. Furthermore, this is one of the reasons its development activity has been thriving and outpacing others.

At some point, the development activity metric dropped, indicating that Cardano slowed down the number of features shipped out.

But at press time, that was not the case, as data from Santiment indicated an improvement in the metric. This rise was proof that efforts dedicated to upgrade were impactful this week.

However, ADA, Cardano’s native token, failed to capitalize on this progress. At press time, ADA’s price was $0.46. This value represented a mild 1.41% increase in the last 24 hours.

While ADA evaded a notable increase, sustaining developments like those mentioned above could change its price action for the better.

If this is the case, other parts of the Cardano ecosystem might be affected positively.

ADA supply in profit rises, but it can be better

One aspect that could be impacted is the total supply in profit. Out of the 38.84 billion tokens in circulation, 18.88 billion were in profits.

Should the price of the token revisit $0.50, this number might hit or surpass 20 billion. However, it might not end there, as AMBCrypto reported that Cardano could repeat its 2019 performance.

If the projected increase comes to pass, the token might be able to maintain its top 10 spot. If not, the 10th position per market cap, which it held at press time, could be up for grabs.

For the time being, Santiment showed that Cardano’s Weighted Sentiment was 0.16. Positive readings of the Weighted Sentiment suggest that the broader market is bullish on the project.

If the reading was negative, it would have implied a gloomy perception of Cardano. Following this analysis, one can infer that ADA might stall for a while. But if (when) it breaks out, the rally could be mind-blowing.
