The 4-hour Cardano price chart shows that ADA had pushed up to $1.28 on the 6th. However, with the 20-bar SMA acting as resistance, the price fell back to $1.20. ADA was able to stay at this level for a few sessions before registering a marginal increase to $1.23, where the 20-bar SMA acted as resistance. As a result, ADA fell to $1.14 on the 8th. ADA pushed up to $1.18 from this level and then rose to $1.20 on the 9th. However, ADA could not move past this level and dropped to $1.11 before rising to $1.16 and then moving to its current level of $1.14.

We can see that the MACD and Parabolic SAR are both bullish, indicating that the price could rise.

Cardano Foundation Reaches Goal of Planting 1 Million Trees — All Recorded On Blockchain

A reforestation effort launched by Cardano has reached its initial goal of planting one million trees “of different species native to areas across different parts of Madagascar, Indonesia, Nepal, Kenya, Senegal and Haiti.”

Frederik Gregaard, the CEO of the Cardano Foundation, shared the news on Twitter. He said:

"What an achievement! The #CardanoForest is 100% funded, we've reached the 1 million trees milestone. The success of this first Cardano Global Impact Challenge for the Cardano Ecosystem truly shows the power of our community."

The CEO pointed out the reforestation effort will support local ecosystem development activities in Mombasa, Kenya. Every tree planted, he added, will be “recorded on the Cardano blockchain for enhanced transparency and serve as public proof of land restoration activities.”

The project is part of a partnership between the Cardano Foundation and cryptocurrency startup Veritree, which uses blockchain technology to record the supply chain of tree plantations for its users, making them verifiable and easily trackable.

Notably, Veritree plants a tree each time an ADA token is exchanged for a TREE token, with the latter being redeemable for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) during specific “redemption days.” The rarity of the NFTs is based on the initial amount of ADA committed.

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels 

Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA has registered a significant increase during the current season. If buyers remain in control, we could see ADA push to $1.15.
