Cardano Defies Crypto Downturn with Surging On-Chain Transactions


In a world where downturns are as common as the turning of planetary gears, Cardano appears to have carved out a niche of exception to the rule. The ripple of decline that recently swept through the crypto market, ruthlessly dragging down values, seems to be showing signs of loosening its grip on Cardano, the intriguing blockchain platform. The evidence is mounting in the form of on-chain data, painting a picture of a possible reversal of fortune.

In recent days, there has been a noteworthy surge in on-chain transactions by large holders of ADA, Cardano’s native token. This sudden flurry of activity is a clear indication of renewed interest in the blockchain after a weeklong slump. The numbers are impressive. Cardano has recorded over $10 billion worth of large transactions within the last 24hours, representing a robust 26% increase within that timeframe. As a result, the cumulative worth of ADA large transactions over the past week stands at a staggering $32.54 billion.

Following a series of existential price fluctuations that are typical for altcoins, Cardano endures. The vertiginous dip in Bitcoin’s price below $65,000 in the last 48 hours served only to magnify Cardano’s decline. However, it seems the blockchain platform is on the cusp of rebounding, drawing strength from the growing interest of its large holders. A staggering 27.17 billion ADA tokens, equating to $10.43 billion, exchanged hands between large holders in the course of a single day. That’s according to the cryptocurrency intelligence firm, IntoTheBlock (ITB).

Poised on the playground of high stakes, the number of large Cardano transactions vaulted to 851 within the same 24-hour period. This marks a dramatic climb from 410 recorded on June 16th – an impressive 107% increase, as reported by ITB. The central metric of observation reflects transactions exceeding $100,000. Yet, despite the encouraging uptick of recent activity, the number of transactions remains significantly below the peak transaction record of 95,730 logged on May 29th.

One might wonder, “Could this crescendo of large holder activity propel ADA to the $1 mark?” A significant number of analysts are optimistic that once the market recovers its bullish stride, there is still considerable ground for ADA to cover. The blockchain’s 30-day MVRV ratio currently stands at a markedly bullish -12.6%, suggesting the likelihood of an imminent short-term price rebound.

Written in dollars and cents, ADA is currently trading at $0.3915, with a modest 24-hour increase of 0.45%. Amid the recent market turmoil, ADA has managed to bounce back from a 7-month low of $0.3685 witnessed on June 18th.

The $1 mark may prove challenging, in light of various price resistance levels. The immediate goal is to rally to the $0.400 resistance level. Failure to make this push may precipitate another decline to $0.37. However, given ADA had reached an all-time high of $3.10 in September 2021, it certainly looks plausible to consider reclaiming $1 is far from impossible. History, and in Cardano’s case, recent history, often has a knack for repeating itself.
