By now you must have heard about Cardano (ADA) considering the amount of attention it has been getting of late. Launched in September 2017, Cardano (ADA) has managed to quickly make a name for itself as one of the top 10 virtual currencies in the market with a market cap of $3,381,881,920 (at the time of press).

If you are wondering what the future holds for Cardano (ADA), then you are reading the right article. In this writing, I am going to try and share with you relevant Cardano price prediction giving you also an overview about Cardano (ADA) and what makes it stand out.

What is Cardano (ADA)?

Like Ethereum, Cardano is a blockchain technology that was created for the development of smart contracts and decentralized apps. And just like Ethereum where Ether is the digital currency or token used to facilitate transactions on its platform, ADA is the default virtual currency for Cardano’s platform.

However, Cardano offers superior technological improvements over other digital coins such as Ethereum as it aims to develop an accessible, interoperable 3rd generation blockchain. Shockingly, the brain behind Cardano (ADA) is non-other than one of Ethereum’s co-founder, Charles Hoskinson who conceptualized it in 2015 and later launching it in 2017.

Cardano’s Investment Brief History

Unlike other virtual currencies, Cardano did not commence with promotions immediately after formation. In fact, the now number 7 cryptocurrency in the market was worked on for over two years before the management decided to launch it to the public.

Within a month into existence, the digital coin became popular in the crypto market getting listed in some of the leading virtual currency exchanges in a short time. The value of ADA, which was initially at 0.021 US dollars at the time of launch, hit a high of 1.22 US dollars early this year.

Value growth of over 5,000 percent in barely four months. During the same time, Cardano’s market capitalization grew from $0.56 million to a whopping 31 billion US dollars.

Investors found the digital coin as a viable investment asset due to Cardano’s substantial technological superiority it offers over other virtual currencies, and due to a competent and transparent team behind its operations.

Cardano (ADA) Long-Term (2020) Price Prediction

Different crypto analysts have conflicting opinions concerning Cardano’s price prediction for the year 2020. For instance, the technical analysis done by longforecast.com show that Cardano’s price valuation in December 2020 might be at $1.89 which is seen to be a more realistic forecast for the fast-growing crypto.

In regards to its position in the market, there is an alternative prediction for the digital coin:

  • Virtual currency investments will replace fiat currency which will drive the supplementary adoption and development of the virtual currency.
  • The Eastern Pacific looks to be warming up more towards Cardano raising the speculations that it might be used widely in that area.
  • Cardano has the potential to become one of the top-5 virtual currencies in the market although LTC, Ripple, and other cryptos offer it tough competition.

However, Cardano (ADA) future prices depend on market shifts and waves, and it is paramount to note we cannot give exact predictions since more superior cryptos and blockchain technologies keep on popping up from time to time. Still, all in all, as things stand, Cardano is ‘red hot’ investment opportunity and could have given the birth to many cryptocurrency multimillionaires when we reach 2020.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
