After dropping by almost 5% on Wednesday, the Cardano price registered a marginal recovery on Thursday, rising by 0.48%. The price was back in the red on Friday, with sellers pushing ADA down by over 8%, as it slipped to $1.53. Despite the bearish sentiment, the price recovered on Saturday, rising by 0.70% and then by 3.28% on Sunday, ending the weekend at $1.59. The current session sees ADA back in the red, with the price currently down by over 1%.
We can see that the Parabolic SAR is currently bearish, indicating that the price could drop further.
Looking at IntoTheBlock’s IOMAP for the Cardano price, we can see that ADA has strong support at around $1.51. At this price level, over 127,000 addresses have bought more than 2.8 billion ADA. ADA also faces strong resistance at around $1.79. At this price level, over 197,000 addresses have sold 2.2 billion ADA.
The 4-hour Cardano price chart shows us that ADA had dropped below the 20-bar SMA on the 22nd, falling to $1.79. With the 20-bar SMA acting as resistance, ADA continued to drop, falling to $1.62 on the 24th. The price pushed up from this level, rising to $1.72. However, it could not push past the 20-bar SMA and dropped to $1.50. From this price level, ADA pushed up to $1.57 before dropping to $1.48. The price pushed up significantly from this level, pushing above the 20-bar SMA and rising to $1.59. Currently, we can see that the price is at $1.57, and with the MACD currently bullish, we could see the price push up.

Is This Going To Reverse Current Cardano Negative Sentiment?
Earlier, with the implementation of Alonzo hard fork, Cardano launched itself into the mainstream of decentralized services and web3. Recently, a Cardano developer opined on Twitter that the network needs to implement an alternative node as it is “critical for the success of our blockchain.” To this, founder and creator Charles Hoskinson replied:
“Client diversity is critical for the long-term viability of Cardano. I’d love to see a Typescript, Rust, and Haskell client all working together and certified against the formal specifications.”
A client would essentially mean a software application that implements the Cardano specification and communicates over the peer-to-peer network with other Cardano clients.
The Cardano developer also noted that Haskell, Cardano’s native programming language, is “a great choice to implement specs first.” While Haskell is necessary for reliable code implementation, it is particularly significant for implementing the Cardano node client, infrastructure essential to securely verifying blockchain transactions.
A proposal on Cardano’s governance noted the several factors that make alternative node implementation on Cardano necessary. Most importantly, the protocols currently deployed on Cardano’s mainnet have only one implementation in the Haskell language. This has a smaller developer community when compared to other programming languages. This hinders specification verification since the absence of alternative implementation makes it almost impossible to “validate compliance with specifications.”
Finally, the proposal highlighted the risks posed by homogeneous code implementation. This is because a bug in the Haskell codebase can impact the entire network without contributors having the ability to change to different node implementations.
Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA had pushed up over the weekend but finds itself back in the red in the ongoing session. If sellers retain control of the session, we could see ADA drop to around $1.50. However, if the price recovers, the ADA could push towards $1.60.
