Cardano (ADA), the dark horse of the crypto world, has been doing a decent job in the past few months, attracting many investors to its platform. The blockchain project, which boasts an impressive follower-base and well-known for its powerful development team, has witnessed a sudden setback recently. If you updated with the latest price trends, you might be aware how the currency has crashed by 32.9% within a short span of one week. Although the Cardano (ADA) investors have seen a major price drop in December 2017, this price slump has come as a surprise to many. With exciting developments like the launch of two Testnets, as well as its association with Goguen project, such a setback was totally unimaginable. As the bearish sign returns to Cardano, investors are yet to reconcile to its impact on the market. If you are still wondering what’s going on with this cryptocurrency, here’s the full story.

Cardano (ADA): A Promising Blockchain Project  

As a non-mineable cryptocurrency, Cardano (ADA) is widely considered to be one of the promising digital currencies. Often recognized for its status of being the first scientifically-based blockchain project, the platform offers some unique benefits to its investors. Apart from its highly advanced technological features, the project also boasts top-notch security features, as its code is written in Haskell language, one of the best coding algorithms. As you may be aware of, the Haskell language is based on the Ouroboros protocol, which is well-known for its proof-of-stake consensus mechanism and its updated Daedalus wallet. What’s more, Cardano is supported by some of the best teams in the crypto community – IOHK, Emurgo, and the Cardano Foundation, all of which are striving to make it one of the best smart contracts- based cryptocurrency platform.

The Bearish Sign Returns for Cardano

As evident from the previous price records, Cardano was all set to hit the moon with a number of notable developments. Last week was devastating for Cardano investors as the currency reversed its bull run, which began at the beginning of April. While most investors were hoping for a long-term bullish market, Cardano disappointed its users with a shocking 32.9% drop. Discernibly, this is the second time the coin has witnessed such a price drop, the first one occurring in December 2017. While the first downtrend was not entirely Cardano’s own fault as the entire crypto market was down with a bearish trend, the second drop was a severe blow to the investors since it was unexpected.

What Is the Reason Behind the Sudden Price Drop?

Due to unexpected price movements, some of the well-performing currencies have witnessed a dreadful week, with price dropping by major percentages. Speaking of the worst performers in the market, mention must be made of Cardano (ADA) as it featured among the top losers. As per the price records, Cardano led the downtrend in terms of its last week’s performance. The steep decline of Cardano’s price, wherein the coin has dropped -32.40%, has resulted in a catastrophic drop in the market, sending many top-performing coins in the red.

Reflecting on the sudden price drop, price analysts have suggested that the decline can be directly associated with the news from South Korean exchanges. As per the reports, one of the most influential exchanges in South Korea, Upbit made headlines for investigations based on alleged frauds.  This is the primary reason why Cardano, which has shown signs of an upward push, has declined steeply over the last week.

Cardano’s Forecast: Will Cardano Rebound From Its Bearish Trend?

The bearish trend, that took the ADA community by surprise, could have been a massive setback for the ADA community, but much to the traders’ relief, the bearish trend slowed down, indicating signs of a slow but steady recovery. The rapid decline in the prices last Friday, which closed the week with an 18% slump, has slowed down subsequently, allowing ADA to mitigate the incurred losses. Going by the price movements, the coin traded in bear sentiment during the Asian trading hours, and the 24-hour decline is tantamount to -7.6% over its earlier position. The price dropped to $0.24 against the US dollar on all the popular exchanges.

The downturn could have reversed all the progress made over the last month, but the cool-off spared the currency from any severe long-term damages. As for Cardano traders, the bear run concluded on a positive note, the price moving up by 4.52%, taking the price of ADA to $0.26. While the general sentiment of the Cardano market is still bearish, traders would be glad to know that the coin is heading towards a recovery, as the upside push can continue to benefit the investors if the support lines are formed above $0.25. Trading at $0.270667 at the time of writing, Cardano (ADA) has moved up by 0.22% from its previous position, signaling further price stability. With the bull showing signs of a comeback, the tables could turn on Cardano, especially if the upside movement continues to be present during the European trading hours.

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.
