Cardano (ADA) has become one of the most popular cryptocurrencies to talk about lately, and as time passes, more and more people start to see its potential. With awareness, there also comes speculation, and some of the Cardano discussions have been revolving around its price and its potential growth in the future. It would seem that one of the most popular opinions right now is that Cardano has the potential to go up as high as $10 within the next 5 years. Can this really happen?
About Cardano (ADA)
Cardano is a blockchain-based, open-source technology. Like many other cryptos, it provides its users with smart contracts, and the ability to develop dApps, as well as make various transactions.
Cardano only appeared in September of last year, but in a few short months, it managed to climb up the ranks, and take its place as the 8th top cryptocurrency, according to CoinMarketCap. This is a massive achievement in itself, for such a new crypto to join a top 10 group in just a few months. However, ADA did not stop there. During the golden age of cryptos at the end of the previous year, it’s price reached $1, which was its all-time high.
Of course, after the value of cryptos dropped at the start of 2018, Cardano went down as well. Its price continued to struggle with the market changes, just like those of other cryptos, and it currently sits at $0.175066 per token.
So, why is everyone so excited about this cryptocurrency, and why is its price expected to go as high as $10, which is ten times higher than its all-time high so far?
The future of Cardano’s price
The first thing that we should establish is that Cardano is much more stable than the majority of other cryptos. Sure, its price went both up and down, along with the rest of them. However, both those ups and downs were much tamer than what many other cryptos had to endure. And, according to Cardano’s charts over its lifetime, this crypto doesn’t really have large ups and downs, but instead, it is mostly very tame.
Additionally, Cardano is not a cryptocurrency that will make an instant high profit. Instead, it is one that makes gains over a longer period of time. This makes it a keeper, and a good choice for the future.
Another thing to remember is that ADA is a pretty young coin, that is still in development. With that in mind, it is amazing to consider what it managed to achieve already, but there is still a lot of work to be done on the coin itself, as well as the blockchain. Its team works tirelessly, and it progresses slowly but surely. Additionally, Cardano is also growing in popularity, and its community continues to grow with each passing day.
So, with more interest, a platform that is getting better and better all the time, and a coin that has a lot to offer, is stable, and an obvious long-term player, it is clear why Cardano has started to attract this type of attention. With new products in the future and more people interested in trading with this crypto, its price definitely has a potential to reach the sky. It is all a matter of time, and Cardano has proven to be quite good at waiting patiently.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
