Cardano Price Analysis: ADA/USD Accelerating Losses Below $0.060

Key Highlights

ADA price extended losses below the $0.0620 and $0.0600 support levels against the US Dollar (tethered).
There was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $0.0614 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair (data feed via Bittrex).
The pair is currently trading well below $0.0600 and it could continue to move down in the near term.

Cardano price fell significantly recently against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ADA/USD is likely to decline further towards the $0.0530 level.
Cardano Price Analysis
In the last analysis, we discussed that cardano price could extend losses below $0.0620 against the US Dollar. The ADA/USD pair did decline recently and traded below the $0.0620 and $0.0600 support levels. There was even a close below the $0.0600 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The last swing high was formed near $0.0640 from where the price started a solid decline.
During the drop, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $0.0614 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair. More importantly, the price traded below the last swing low of $0.0579. The next support is at $0.0560, which is the 1.236 Fibonacci extension level of the last wave from the $0.0579 low to $0.0649 high. The current price action is super bearish below $0.060. Thus, there are high chances of more losses towards the $0.0535 level. It represents the 1.618 Fibonacci extension level of the last wave from the $0.0579 low to $0.0649 high.

The chart indicates that ADA price settled below a few key support at $0.0600 and the 100 hourly SMA. To recover, the price must climb above $0.0600, $0.06200. If buyers fail to gain traction, the price will most likely slide below $0.0550 in the near term.
Hourly MACD – The MACD for ADA/USD is gaining strength in the bearish zone.
Hourly RSI – The RSI for ADA/USD is currently below the 30 level.
Major Support Level – $0.0550
Major Resistance Level – $0.0620

Cardano [ADA] 1.4 update to be released by end of November or early December

Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK did an AMA [Ask Me Anything] on YouTube on November 17. He spoke about the upcoming 1.4 and Shelly update for Cardano 1.4.

Hoskinson said:
“The update 1.4 for Cardano is coming along well and we’re in regression testing right now. We’ve had a few regressions but nothing significant is found yet and it’s a lot of new code. There has been a huge amount of refactoring on the core, and we’ve found new database solutions, so we’ve gone from lots of storage to little storage and become much more efficient.”
He continued saying that the biggest development that has happened is in the wallet backend. Moreover, Hoskinson confirmed that it was the first piece of formally verified code that they’ve had.
Hoskinson further confirmed that the development cut-off was a few weeks ago and that they were working their way through the QA which is being led Alan McNicholas, the head of the QA department at IOHK and his team.
Hoskinson stated:
“The update won’t be taking much longer, I’d say a few more weeks and hopefully we should have the update 1.4 release by end of November or early December. And it’s the most significant update we’ve ever made to the Cardno ecosystem.”
The Cardano 1.4 update is the foundation for the new wallet’s backend. Hoskinson had previously explained that the current Cardano SL code was never meant to be something that is long-term. He also mentioned that the existing code will be heavily changed and refactored to drop dependencies and make architectural changes.
Charles Hoskinson added:
“After the 1.4 update, every update is going to be Shelley related so the first major update will be basically some new code for Ouroboros BFT and that’ll get us all aligned up so that we can start moving towards some variant of Ouroboros.”
He said that there were five different teams that were using the test implementations of Ouroboros in different capacities and that they’ve published a paper on e-print for Ouroboros.

Bear attack: Bitcoin Cash [BCH], Tron [TRX], Litecoin [LTC] biggest losers, Bitcoin [BTC], XRP and XLM most resilient

The market has been seeing a generally bearish downturn as the date of its historical bull run draws closer. Even as the space continues to see interesting developments in terms of custody solutions, market maturation and the entry of institutional developments, the market continues to not shake off the strong grip of the bear’s hold.
Even this week, the market is experiencing a general downward trend, generally owing to the lack of market momentum seen in the Bitcoin [BTC] market in particular.
#1 Bitcoin Cash [BCH]:
Bitcoin Cash has undoubtedly been the star of the media’s eye, as its upcoming hard fork has everyone in the crypto-space looking. However, as a consequence of its astronomic rise last week, the coin is now experiencing a retracement of 15.6% in the red zone, making BCH the biggest loser in this week’s bearish experience.
It is currently experiencing a loss of 2.6% over the past day with a trading price of $524 and a market cap just under 1/10th of Bitcoin at $9.1 billion.
#2 Tron [TRX]:
Tron [TRX] is the second biggest loser this week with a loss percentage of 9.99% over the timeframe, with a 2.6% loss continuing into the 24-hour zone. The coin is trading at $0.02 with a market cap of $1.4 billion, putting its position on CoinMarketCap right below that of USD Tether.
#3 Litecoin [LTC]:
Litecoin is the 3rd largest loser this week with a 9.4% loss over the past 7 days culminating in its loss today of 1.1%. This puts it at a price of $50.2 with a market cap of $2.9 billion.
#4 Cardano [ADA]:
Cardano is also experiencing a heavy loss of 8.4% over the week and 3% over the past 24 hours, reducing its price to a low of $0.07. This puts its market cap at $1.8 billion and makes it the 4th biggest loser in the bearish race downwards.
#5 EOS:
EOS is close behind, as the coin has only recently lost its position and is now at #6 by market cap. It is trailing XLM’s market cap by $100 million, with a market cap of $4.7 billion and a price of $5.2. It is undergoing a loss of 8.3% over the week, with a loss of 2.4% over the past 24 hours. This puts it at the position of being the 5th largest loser over the week.
#6 Monero [XMR]:
Monero is another coin that seems to be resilient to the bear’s attacks, with its loss coming in the middle of the pack at 6.5% over the week. However, it has undergone only a 0.5% loss over the past 24 hours, putting its price at $104 with a market cap close behind Cardano’s at $1.7 billion.
#7 Ethereum [ETH]:
The second largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, has begun experiencing a general downward spiral to see a bounce off the $200 mark yet again. It is currently undergoing a loss of 5.2% over the past week, with a 1.2% loss over the past 24 hours at a price of $206 and a market cap only $900 million past its closest competitor at $21.3 billion.
#8 XRP:
XRP seems to be building up positive sentiment, as seen by the variety of good news for the HODLers of the coin. However, the price is not reflecting the same, as it has observed a 1.4% slide over the day, adding to its weekly loss of 4.4%. This marks its place as the 3rd lowest loser over the time period, with its current price of $0.50 and a market cap of $20.4 billion.
#9 Bitcoin [BTC]:
The #1 cryptocurrency has not presented any of its characteristic knife drops or shooting star-esque growth over the past 2 months, leading many to believe that traders are slowly leaving the market for greener pastures.
The coin is down by 2.75% over the past week, with a slow decline of 0.38% over the past 24 hours. It is currently resting at a price of $6531, with an undisputed market cap of $110.3 billion. It is hence the second lowest loser over the past week.
#10 Stellar Lumens [XLM]:
Stellar Lumens has been the coin with the most armor against the bear’s attacks, it seems, leading to a loss of only 2.3% over the past week, making it the lowest loser. However, the coin is undergoing a loss of 5.2% over the past day and is now at a trading price of $0.25 and a market cap of $4.8 billion.
The crypto-market might be set for another recovery rally. However, all the market seems to want is the volatile market movement seen by the coins before this period of extended non-volatility.

Cardano Price Analysis: ADA/USD Could Extend Declines To $0.072

Key Highlights

ADA price failed to stay above the $0.0760 support and extended losses against the US Dollar (tethered).
There was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $0.0760 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair (data feed via Bittrex).
The pair may perhaps continue to move down towards the $0.0730 or $0.0720 support.

Cardano price is slowly moving lower against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ADA/USD could accelerate declines towards the $0.0720 support in the near term.
Cardano Price Analysis
Recently, cardano price settled below the $0.0800 support level against the US Dollar. It resulted in a fresh decline and the ADA/USD pair declined below the $0.0780 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. During the decline, the price traded below the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last major wave from the $0.0703 low to $0.0820 high.
More importantly, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $0.0760 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair. The pair settled below the $0.0760 support, which is a short term bearish sign. The next support is near the $0.0730 level. It represents the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement level of the last major wave from the $0.0703 low to $0.0820 high. Below $0.0730, the price will most likely decline towards the $0.0720 support area. If there is an upside correction, the $0.0760 level and the 100 hourly SMA are likely to act as hurdles. Above the $0.0760 resistance, the price may resume its upward move.

The chart indicates that ADA price moved into a short term bearish zone below the $0.0760 support and the 100 hourly SMA. If buyers struggle to push the price back above $0.0760 and $0.0762, there could be more losses towards $0.0720.
Hourly MACD – The MACD for ADA/USD is placed heavily in the bearish zone.
Hourly RSI – The RSI for ADA/USD is currently attempting a recovery from the 30 level.
Major Support Level – $0.0720
Major Resistance Level – $0.0762

The Aroon indicator shows that a trend reversal is in progress, with the downtrend decreasing in power as the uptrend witnesses a sharp hike.
The MACD is set for a bullish crossover.
The Klinger Volume Oscillator is demonstrating a bullish crossover with a continued upward movement.

Cardano [ADA/USD] Technical Analysis: Bear to stay in the market for a longer duration

Cardano [ADA], the eighth-biggest cryptocurrency in the market, has been sparking green on a constant basis in the market, despite the lack of new announcements. However, the coin has failed to show its continuous support to the bull after the race, which took place at the beginning of this month.
According to CoinMarketCap, the cryptocurrency was trading at $0.075 with a market cap of more than $1 billion. The coin had a trading volume of more than $20 million and had seen a gain of 4.94% in the past 7 days.
1-hour:
Cardano [ADA] one-hour price chart | Source: Trading ViewIn the one-hour chart, the coin showed a downward trend from $o.077 to $0.075. It also displayed an upward trend which started at $0.0744 and ended at $0.0748. The coin has a strong resistance at $0.078 and an immediate resistance at $0.0754. Nonetheless, the coin has a strong support at $0.0744 ground and an immediate support at $0.0746.
The Chaikin Money Flow showed that the bull could take over the market.
Parabolic SAR showed that the dots have started to align below the candlesticks, predicting a bullish run to take place soon.
The Bollinger Bands were contracting at the time of writing, displaying a less volatile market. 
1-day:
Cardano [ADA] one-hour price chart | Source: Trading ViewIn the one-day chart, ADA displayed a downward trend from $0.172 to $0.081 and an upward trend from $0.071 to $0.076. The cryptocurrency showed that there was a tough battle ahead as it had to breach the immediate resistance, which is set at $0.086 and the strong resistance, which is set at $0.107. If the strong resistance is breached, then the next resistance is set at $0.172
The RSI indicator showed that the selling pressure and the buying pressure of the coin are evening out each other.
MACD showed that the moving average line was above the signal line. However, the line was converging and showed that it could dive below the signal line, forecasting a bearish weather.
The Klinger Oscillator was on the bear’s side, as the reading line was below the signal line.
Conclusion
The cryptocurrency could rejoin the bear’s group soon as the MACD and Klinger Oscillator are showing their favor to the bear.

Bitcoin Falls to $6,300 Region as Altcoins Continue to Decline

After failing to stabilize above $6,500, Bitcoin has now fallen into the $6,300 region, and it is becoming increasingly likely that it will test its long-established support level that exists at $6,200.
Altcoins also took a hit on Friday after yesterday’s weak day of trading.
Bitcoin Drifts Lower, $6,200 Likely to be Defended by Bulls
At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at $6,395, trading down 1.3% over the past 24-hours.
BTC has been gradually declining since November 6th, when it rose to weekly highs of nearly $6,600 before beginning its slow decent back to its current levels.
Historically, it is important that bulls defend the $6,200 region, as that is the bottom of BTC’s persisting trading range between $6,200 and $6,700. If the bottom of this range is broken, it will open the doors for BTC to retest its year-to-date lows in the $5,800 region.
Although this is a possibility, it is fairly unlikely considering that bulls have defended $6,200 on approximately four occasion over the past three months, meaning that bulls will likely step up to defend this level in the future, unless there is a news-based drop.
Altcoins Continue to Decline
Bitcoin’s decline to the $6,300 levels has perpetuated the relatively small decline in altcoin prices, with many major alts trading down 3%+, with the worst performing major alt down nearly 20%.
At the time of writing, today’s market drop has been led by Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Cardano (ADA), and Basic Attention Token (BAT), which are trading down 3.8%, 3.7%, and 18.2% respectively.
Despite having a bad past couple of days, Bitcoin Cash is still one of the best performers of the week, currently trading at $570, up 26% from its weekly lows of approximately $450.
BCH’s bullish week is the result of its imminent hard fork event, which is scheduled to occur on November 15th. This event will reward holders of BCH with units of the forked cryptocurrency, which could ultimately prove to be highly profitable for investors.
Over the next week, investors could begin to increase their BCH positions in anticipation of the hard fork, then offloading their positions as soon as they receive the forked units.
Basic Attention Token’s poor daily performance is the direct result of the cryptocurrency’s ties to the cryptocurrency exchange EtherDelta, which is now facing legal troubles from the U.S. SEC, which has charged the platform’s founder with operating an unlicensed national securities exchange.
The charges, which were first announced in a SEC press release, detail how many of the ERC20 tokens offered on EtherDelta (like BAT) are considered to be securities, which puts their operation under the jurisdiction of the SEC.
Stephanie Avakian, the co-director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division, spoke about the charges against EtherDelta’s founder, Zachary Coburn, saying that:
“EtherDelta had both the user interface and underlying functionality of an online national securities exchange and was required to register with the SEC or qualify for an exemption.”
In the coming weeks, it is likely that Bitcoin will lead the markets as usual, and its performance within its long-established trading range will likely impact which direction the entire market heads.

Cardano [ADA] Reddit AMA session clears the air about reward sharing schemes as stake pools impend

The Cardano [ADA] team recently conducted an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Reddit regarding the reward schemes in their stake pools. The session was conducted by Aggelos Kiayias, Chief Scientist at IOHK, in conjunction with Lars Brünjes, Elias Koutsoupias and Aikaterini-Panagiota Stouka, the co-authors of the paper to implement the reward schemes.
The session was kick-off by user mchapman1989, who asked whether he would be able to stake ADA using a Ledger hardware wallet and Raspberry Pi computer. In response, Kiayias answered to the affirmative, clarifying that staking meant delegating the user’s stake to a pool and receiving rewards from it.
User Jonne33 pitched in as well, stating:
“Once delegated you can put your ada on Ledger or even on a paper wallet. You don’t need to be online after that (ie you don’t need raspberry pi or something). Raspberry Pi can be used initially for accessing your Ada and delegating it via Linux Daedalus client (still in development) or via different light wallets which are popping up currently.”
User Gr3cu enquired about an alternative to economic incentives being a part of the scheme for staking scheme. His alternatives included real-time information or advice by a system observing the pools. He also stated that he would be up for even a separate pool operated by a party such as IOHK that could be trusted with ADA.
Gr3cu then proceeded to ask whether the said entity could manage the ADA to increase the performance of the network at the expense of stake rewards.
In response, Kiayias stated:
“In general, it is hard to get reliable performance metrics / advice that are not attackable or involve a single point of failure. The wallet will provide some input to the stakeholders about what pools are performing as they should using information drawn from the blockchain . In any case IOHK will be like any other entity in the ecosystem without any special role or access.”
User nel0_angel0 had a question on the general functioning of Cardano, as it was a worldwide organization. He asked whether this does not hinder work, with the response from Kiayias being:
“It is challenging but we take full advantage of all kinds of online communication + regular teleconferencing. In academic research we are used to work like this anyway since many projects are cross institution / organisation and work involves traveling and international coordination on a daily basis.”

Cardano Price Analysis: ADA/USD Buyers In Control, $0.080 Next?

Key Highlights

ADA price traded higher recently and broke the $0.0750 resistance against the US Dollar (tethered).
There are two bullish trend lines in place with support at $0.0740 and $0.0730 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair (data feed via Bittrex).
The pair remains well supported and buyers could attempt to push the price towards $0.0800 in the near term.

Cardano price is moving nicely against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ADA/USD is likely to continue higher towards the $0.0800 and $0.0810 levels.
Cardano Price Analysis
In the last analysis, we discussed the chances of a recovery above $0.0750 in cardano price against the US Dollar. The ADA/USD pair did trade higher recently and broke the $0.0750 and $0.0760 resistance levels. There was even a close above the $0.0750 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The upside move was strong as the price traded as high as $0.0784 before sellers appeared.
Later, the price corrected lower and declined below $0.0760. There was a break below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent upside move from the $0.0704 low to $0.0784 high. However, there is a strong support formed near the $0.0740 and $0.0750 levels. There are also two bullish trend lines in place with support at $0.0740 and $0.0730 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair. Besides, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent upside move from the $0.0704 low to $0.0784 high at $0.0744 is an immediate support. Therefore, the price is likely to find support near the $0.0740 or $0.0730 level in the near term.

The chart indicates that ADA price is placed in a bullish zone above $0.0730. On the upside, a break above the $0.0770 and $0.0780 level could open the doors for a push towards $0.0800.
Hourly MACD – The MACD for ADA/USD moved back in the bearish zone.
Hourly RSI – The RSI for ADA/USD is currently flat near the 50 level.
Major Support Level – $0.0730
Major Resistance Level – $0.0780

BTC, IOTA And ADA Relish In Positive End To October


 Listen Here – https://soundcloud.com/cryptodaily/btc-iota-and-ada-relish-in-positive-end-to-october
This week may have been a slow week for the markets, however as always, the crypto news has been rife. We want to go back over a number of this week’s headlines with you for two reasons. Firstly, we want to offer you a chance to re-cap, with so much news constantly flowing, we’ll admit it’s very hard to keep up.
Secondly though, yesterday’s news can help us to decide what might happen next – by reviewing the news of this week, we can all become better investors and can all learn to make more accurate predictions, helping us to manage our portfolios more efficiently.
Why did Bitcoin drop today?
This week has seen a number of troughs in the value of the markets. It seems that a bearish regression has really hit Bitcoin hard this week, dragging its value right down, moving ever closer to the $6,000.00 threshold that most investors wish Bitcoin would run away from. According to some reports, much of this fall was helped along by the theory that Bitcoin is creeping closer to becoming a stable coin (not in the tethered sense, more in the sense that it has held a consistent price for a very long time now).
“Prominent faces in the industry quickly commented to underscore Bitcoin’s new quasi-stablecoin status. A senior market analyst at eToro, Mati Greenspan jested last week saying: Hey stock jocks!!! Tell me again how Bitcoin isn’t a stable store of wealth due to extreme volatility.”
This ‘stability’ hasn’t just affected Bitcoin, as of Tuesday:
“Similar patterns were seen by Ethereum too with a negative momentum, slowly dropping down 3% on the day to trade to around $197 at the time of writing. Over the past week, the second biggest coin in the market has also been trading sideways, showing only marginally more fluctuation than Bitcoin over a similar time frame.”
What will Bitcoin be worth in 5 years time?
When we are forced to sit within bear markets, experts and investors start to speculate about future prices. Indeed, nobody expects this bear market to last, and we do know that one day, Bitcoin will find value again, so, I suppose there’s no harm in speculating about future prices at the moment – though remember this is just speculation, there is no guarantee that Bitcoin will fly.
Tim Draper, the famed venture capitalist has recently spoken at the ‘Crypto Invest Summit’ during which he said Bitcoin could reach a price at around $250,000.00 by 2022.
Draper believes this, because:
“Right now, there’s $86 trillion of political currency. They call it ‘fiat’ currency, but it’s political. And I believe that that currency will slowly be eaten up by a better currency which is global, decentralized, frictionless. It’s just a better currency. Bitcoin’s a better currency. And I think Bitcoin will be one of five cryptocurrencies. I think that government can be transformed in this big, huge way. Which is, you put all those technologies together. You have a token that’s global and decentralized. The token is now on a perfect ledger called the blockchain so you don’t require all this special accounting because the accounting is already done.”
Now don’t get ahead of yourselves, $250,000.00 is a huge increase from the $6,000.00 – $7,000.00 range that Bitcoin currently resides in, but I suppose as they say – never say never.
For those who don’t invest in Bitcoin, or shy away from Bitcoin news, well don’t panic, because this week has marked some positive progression for Cardano ADA and IOTA MIOTA too.
Hundreds of Firms Seem Keen on IOTA
This week, reports have found a huge level of interest from institutional corporations into the IOTA blockchain and IOTA’s technologies. Whilst it’s not huge news for MIOTA adoption, it is very big news for the overall IOTA project. Over 600 firms in total have expressed an interest in IOTA in the past year alone:
“Demand for the IOTA program is increasing as it seems eager to empower an international community to create a shared economy. David Sonstebo, the founder of the IOTA Foundation thinks that corporations need more programming individuals. The firm’s focus is on exploring the ecosystem, developing documentation and the data marketplace as it aims to redefine trust, ownership and value. The founder believes that once everything’s is figured out and polished over, the adoption rate of IOTA would increase on a scale that was never seen in its history. He believes that this is the same practice that many projects scale on a worldwide level. The open source blockchain technology that is IOTA and its core invention of Tangle is blockless and suggests that it could go beyond the distributed ledger technology.”
Big Security Boost for Cardano
ADA has seen a huge boost this week, though sadly it’s current price doesn’t reflect it. Okay, so no major upgrades have taken place within the Cardano network, however, cryptocurrency storage provider Trezor have announced that they are now almost ready to start allowing for the storage of Cardano’s ADA within the Trezor hardware wallet:
“It has been recently announced by IOHK that Trezor is currently undergoing its final preparations to support Cardano. The globally known hardware wallet, Trezor facilitate digital currencies to be stored and they are popular for being able to store the key to the wallet safely. The firm is a big manufacturer of hardware wallets and a big boost for security for the foundations native token is surely going to please a lot of people who have invested in it. This announcement has come from Charles Hoskinson, who is the founder of Cardano, through his official Twitter account which suggests that this could be the case before next month.”
This is exciting news for ADA investors, who now have access to an ultra secure storage solution for their ADA tokens. As you should know, hard, offline, cold storage solutions are almost hack-proof, therefore within this announcement, ADA has seen a huge security boost, for those investors that do choose to use cold storage solutions anyway.
Whilst the markets have been slow this week, the news has been fast. Make sure you keep up with the latest headlines at www.cryptodaily.co.uk and check back next week from more videos from yours truly!

Hong Kong-based EmurgoHK has partnered up with IronFX to start a new project i.e. IronX, a crypto exchange with ADA as its base currency. The firm is owned by one of the founders of Cardano (ADA) Ken Kodama.

IronX is a fully regulated and supported exchange for crypto investors, online traders and ICOS.
Created by global leaders in online trading the IronFX Group and Emurgo HK, creators of Cardano and ADA Coin, IronX represents a new era in online trading.https://t.co/I2wXDoS1XD

According to the announcement, the project sold 67.6 million tokens which are worth about $22.3 million in the private sale. The public sale for the project is expected to start from today. The exchange has already obtained a license to operate in the UK, Australia, South Africa, and Cyprus and is further looking at Gibralter for expansion.
IronX Exchange shared about Emurgo on Twitter,
“Established in 2007, EmurgoHK is a global leader in blockchain technology and the venture builder for the Cardano blockchain protocol and its hugely successful native cryptocurrency, the ADA Coin. Located in Hong Kong.”
IronX is touted as a “fully regulated and supported exchange for crypto investors, online FX and commodity traders and ICOs.”
The Alpha version of the platform is already ready as mentioned by the company, “We already have an Alpha version of our exchange, is ready to go through stringent testing.”
First introduced in June, the official announcement had stated, “IronX is a cryptocurrency exchange that will help bridge the worlds of FX and cryptocurrency trading, by facilitating traders of both types to move their positions between the various asset classes. This will allow crypto investors to diversify into the traditional investment world, as well as providing an easy and safe way for non-crypto investors to explore the world of tokens. This is expected to increase awareness and adoption of cryptocurrencies and has the potential to benefit the entire industry.”
This has the Cardano community excited as one Redditor shares, “I think people still don’t realize that; IronX is not a crypto exchange it exchanges everything shares commodities etc. Cardano will not just be a random crypto supported, the entire project will be built on Cardano computational layer (once Cardano evolves to support all functionality including Cardano tokens. Once this happens the IRX will change from ERC to a Cardano token), EmurgoHK is Cardano.”
Cardano (ADA) is the 8th largest cryptocurrency which is currently trading at $0.07 while registering 24-hours gains of 1.84 percent.

Cardano [ADA]’s Charles Hoskinson says, comparing Tezos’ and Cardano’s situation is “apples to oranges”

Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK, said that there was nothing similar between Tezos’ and Cardano’s situation and that comparing them would be “apples to oranges”. He also further discussed the Tezos project in the recent interview with Crypto Insider.
Hoskinson said that the Tezos situation was grim as the founders who want to control the intent of the project set up shop in Switzerland, hoping to elude the regulations of US regulators. The plan backfired as the former foundation head Johan Gevers had a spat over governance with Breitman, which caused a launch delay, he said.
He went on to explain that this was nothing similar to the issue with Cardano and that their foundation added value to the ecosystem. He said:

“Where it has a collection of duties and responsibilities that are for the community but whether it does these things or not doesn’t stop development does these things or not doesn’t start partnership in business development and because of the triumph or its structure we had resiliency. So if it fails to other entities can step in and fill in for it and continue moving the project along”

The CEO then said that he had to travel to 27 countries just to “facilitate the community management and evangelism role” that the foundation was responsible for, and that it did not stop the project from development.
Giving foundations the authority over “software developments” and “scientific research” would not be a good idea as they aren’t very nimble or agile in decision making, added Hoskinson. He said that all cryptocurrencies must face the crisis of governance for them to get to the next level, just like how Bitcoin had Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum had Ethereum Classic, and Ripple had issues with Jed McCaleb. He said:
“The ability to overcome that event is what tells you that cryptocurrency is going to be around for a long time. Bitcoin survived the loss of Satoshi and it is still going strong, so similarly we are no different and Cardano has to overcome this little blip.”
At one point, Charles Hoskinson even compared Cardano to Tezos, saying they are similar to each other and that both have “blockchain governance in mind”, but radically different “philosophies about proof of stake,” concluding by saying that he has respect for the work they have done so far.
