Cardano Loses 3rd Spot On Crypto Top 10, Why It May Drop Even More

    Cardano has now lost its spot at the 3rd place on the crypto top 10 as its price had refused to move in accordance with the broader crypto market. While other altcoins had rallied alongside bitcoin, ADA had remained mostly stagnant.

    Despite the hype created around the project when smart contracts capability was launched last month, support has dwindled for the asset. Its race above $3 had seen it overtake Binance native token BNB to clench the top 3 spot. But ADA has once again surrendered this position as it dropped to 4th place while BNB surged past, beating ADA by $9 billion in market cap.

    ADA May Still Suffer Losses

    The Cardano project has not had any market-moving news in recent times. There has been news regarding the project investing in smaller Cardano-focused startups. However, nothing has created hype around the project.

    Its foray into the decentralized finance (DeFi) space has been delayed because although the blockchain is now capable of supporting smart contracts, building the protocols required to provide decentralized finance services to users takes time to build. Developers have been working hard on deploying their decentralized applications (DApps) on the network and the Cardano Foundation has provided support to these projects, but it will take a while before there are enough working DeFi protocols on the blockchain to draw in users to carry out DeFi activities on the network.

    If the digital asset does not see any significant improvement in support and momentum, then ADA may run the risk of falling below $2. Its community boasts some of the strongest hold sentiment with over 70% of its total supply currently staked. However, without significant amounts of money coming into the asset, it is likely to continue a downtrend that may see the price retest the $1.7 range.

    Cardano Founder Begins Africa Tour

    Bitcoinist reported last week that Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson was getting ready to begin a tour through Africa. Hoskinson confirmed that the tour had kicked off on October 15th when he posted a tweet that showed him appearing on a panel in South Africa, where the tour was scheduled to begin.

    Hoskinson, in conjunction with the Cardano Foundation, plans to visit various startups on the continent that are building on the blockchain. They will provide funding and education, as needed, to this project and help to guide them through deploying on the Cardano network.

    This has although not been the kind of needle-moving news that the digital asset needed because, despite the kick-off of the tour, ADA’s price has not recorded much upward movement. Momentum remains down as the price continues to struggle around the $2.1 price range.
