The last eleven months have been nothing short of slaughter for the crypto market including the king, Bitcoin, and not just Cardano (ADA). The standard expression to refer to a market that is going down is “bearish”, as you probably already know, but this time the bears were really hungry and made life really miserable for everybody.
But there is no doubt that the market will recover sooner or later. In the last couple of days, we’ve started to see green numbers pop up here and there. It’s not a market trend yet, of course, but some coins are starting to push forward once more slowly.
According to experts, the market won’t really experience a new bull run until it hits rock bottom. Many of them think that will happen when Bitcoin goes as low as 3k in price. Yes, that low. And what should we make of this? Nothing, really.
Markets go up and down in cycles, and the cryptocurrency market has had at least four bearish runs that have been as bad (if not worse) than the current one. It’s always recovered and more. There’s nothing wrong with Bitcoin, or any other digital asset. It just so happens that as long as the alt-coin exchanges around the world are ruled by speculative pressure, these episodes are unavoidable.
However low Bitcoin could be right now, it remains the gold among digital assets, and it will remain so until some other token takes over its place as the world’s largest by market capitalization and as a base currency in the world’s exchanges. Maybe Bitcoin is down, but it’s definitely not out.
But even in a market as adverse as today’s, those who can read the signs of the times and know what they’re doing can still make a bit of money. No, seriously. Just a few days ago the market saw a bull run on Cardano’s (congrats to those who took advantage) that made it grow quite a bit. It didn’t last, but you can be sure that those who saw it coming made a pretty penny.
And since we are on the subject of Cardano, let’s dig a little deeper.
It may not be the traders and investors darling coin, but in terms of technological and academic prestige, very few blockchain projects can hold their own against Cardano.
It’s considered to be the best third generation blockchain technology. It has a professional developing team behind it, it’s looking to bring innovations to the blockchain seriously, it enjoys an outstanding reputation among the cryptographic academic world, and it has great potential.
You don’t hear a lot about Cardano in the news. There’s a reason for that. The blockchain projects that are actively trying to find case uses for their tokens (and there are not that many of those, most are quite passive in that regard) are trying to gain adoption in Europe, Asia, or North America. Not Cardano.
Cardano is working to get Africa. That’s because the Cardano leadership knows that in Africa, there is a dearth of financial services of all kinds, so it’s the place in the world in which a good cryptocurrency can be adopted the soonest by a large chunk of the population thus becoming real money quickly.
Many observers believe that Cardano (ADA) will go as high as $8.00 or $10.00 in the following thirteen months. That would be huge as it’s trading at $0.0346 as we write this article. So don’t let yourself be blinded by all the news about the most famous coins in the world. Dig deeper, keep an eye on Cardano’s ADA.

Is Ethereum Still Searching For Its Bottom?
The crypto space has mostly been seeing drops in value during the last 30 days, and it was clear that the bear market of 2018 still has enough energy to cause further damage in this year as well. Most coins occasionally felt a slight growth, although it was not big enough to spark a real rally and shake off the bears.
When it comes to Ethereum, the coin has been dropping continuously since January 10th. ETH experienced high volatility ever since it broke down a $180 support on November 14th, 2018. A small rally starting on December 15th started taking ETH back up, although the highest it managed to reach since then was $159.58 on January 6th, 2019. Since then, the coin’s price entered another free fall, although it never dropped below $100 since then.
The coin seemingly found some stability in the final days of January, when it was trading at around $119, although another drop followed in the first days of February, and Ethereum nearly dropped to $100 on February 6th.
However, February 8th brought a new surge which affected the entire crypto market, bringing the coin’s price back to $144.15, which is its price according to TradingView at the time of writing. The new surge exceeded 11% in the…
Last Week’s Top 3 Most Significant Crypto Events
The crypto space never sleeps, and there is always something going on. Every day, there is some interesting event worth mentioning, some of which may even have significant consequences on the entire crypto space. With that in mind, here are the top three crypto events related to the crypto space that occurred in the previous week, and which may have impacted the world of digital currencies in one way or another.
1) A crypto Whale moves a large portion of XRP
Many have probably already heard the term “Crypto Whale,” as it is quite common to find discussions mentioning them and their activities. The term is a name used for coin holders which tend to buy, sell, or move massive amounts of digital currencies. These are usually professional investors with large funding who can impact the crypto market in any way they please, and make the prices rise or fall depending on their calculated business decisions.
They are called Whales because of the large amounts they move, which usually have a pretty big impact on the market. And, since they are so influential, there are many in the crypto space that have made it their mission to follow the activities of known Whales, and base their business decisions regarding the Whales’ movement.
One example is the Twitter account known as Whale Alert, which has around 50,000 followers. This…
