On Saturday, the Cardano price recovered strongly, rising by over 10% to push up to $2.63. However, ADA fell back into bearish territory on Sunday, falling by over 2%. Monday saw more of the same, with ADA starting in the red and losing 6.92% to close just above the support at $2.38. However, the current session saw ADA pierce this level of support, falling to $2.37. Looking at the MACD and the Parabolic SAR, we can see that both are currently bearish, which means that ADA could fall further during the current session.

Cardano Can Now Mint NFTs

Cardano recently revealed that it has successfully rolled out the scheduled Alonzo upgrade, which introduces the ‘smart contracts’ feature, which allows for non-fungible tokens (NFTs). But the creators have warned that the first use cases may not be seen for years to come.

"The Alonzo upgrade will bring highly anticipated capabilities to Cardano... this is where the mission truly begins as we – the whole community – start delivering on the vision we have all been working towards for so long."

The update puts Cardano in direct competition with Ethereum, giving it more flexibility in terms of applications like non-fungible tokens ( NFTs), automated lending, etc. 

Like Ethereum, the Cardano blockchain is also based on the PoS system, which requires miners to put up their crypto. Only those with the largest stake will be rewarded for their services. It reduces the overall computing power required for mining on a public blockchain. Hence, it is more environmentally sound.

On the other hand, Ethereum’s London Hard Fork rolled out on August 5 and is seen as the first step towards version 2.0 of the platform, which will arrive next year.

The new system moves the Ethereum blockchain towards the proof-of-stake system like Cardano. It reduces its environmental footprint and the transaction fees required on the network. 

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Cardano price chart, we can see that just as last week, ADA had an extremely bearish start to the week. If the current trend continues, we could see ADA potentially slip below the support at $2.38 and push down towards $2.20, where the 50-day SMA could act as support.
