According to stats, the market indicators for ADA are deemed “bearish,” with just 54% of its holders seeing profit at its present price. In the last 24 hours, ADA experienced a trading volume of $428 million, with Binance emerging as the most bustling platform for Cardano transactions.

Within the realm of decentralized finance (defi), ADA’s total value locked (TVL) ranks 17th, as per, standing at $396.31 million at the time of reporting. When it comes to the all-time sales of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), ADA-centric NFTs occupy the eighth spot among top blockchains, amassing $643.80 million in sales, according to statistics.

However, if history is any indicator, the realm of cryptocurrency is perennially ripe with unexpected turns.
