The 4-hour Cardano price chart shows us that the 200-bar SMA is acting as resistance, pushing ADA down. ADA had broken past the 50-bar and 20-bar SMAs on the 7th when the price had reached 42.32. However, with the 200-bar SMA coming into play as resistance, the price fell to $2.23 before recovering marginally to $2.27. ADA stayed at this level for a few sessions before dropping to $2.19, slipping below the 20-bar and 50-bar SMAs. The price then fell further to $2.10, a level that it is still currently at, and with the Parabolic SAR and the MACD both bearish, we could see the price fall further.

Charles Hoskinson To Tour Africa

During the Cardano Summit concluded in September, the firm announced a $100 million investment in Cardano-focused projects by EMURGO. The commercial arm of the Cardano Foundation had made significant investments into several startups that were domiciled in Africa. These startups would receive support in varying degrees, from financial to educational, as the need arose.

Seed investment rounds of companies Milkomeda, ADAVERSE, and Adanian all saw participation from the Cardano network through EMURGO. Some of these projects were incubators for other Cardano-focused projects. Milkomeda is a dcSpark sidechain that provides a bridge between the Cardano blockchain and other layer blockchain protocols.

Africa has proven itself a breeding ground for innovative crypto technology, and founder Charles Hoskinson wants to tap into this climate. Hoskison recently tweeted his plans for the future.

"Just got back from Wyoming, and I'm ready for this upcoming week. Heading to Africa soon- starting in South Africa all the way up to Egypt. Let's go change the world together."

With Bitcoin rallying this week, altcoins have moved in tandem with the leading cryptocurrency. Speculations were that the revived momentum in the broader crypto market would provide the push needed to get ADA back to its previous highs. But so far, the asset has not made any significant recoveries. 

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Cardano price chart, it is evident that ADA is currently in a bearish phase, as is the trend across most altcoins. With the price firmly in the red, ADA could drop towards $2 if the current sentiment persists.
