Cardano (ADA) is advancing Marlowe, its smart contract platform, while facing challenges from leading blockchains like Ethereum and Solana. However, ADA’s designation as a security by the SEC led to a sharp price drop and its delisting from major exchanges. Despite a brief price surge with the introduction of the DJED stablecoin, ADA’s value has been volatile. Following a favorable SEC verdict for Ripple, altcoins, including ADA, experienced a price boost. For potential investors, the pressing query is whether ADA can achieve significant price landmarks in both the short and long term, amidst the current 2023 market sentiments.


Cardano Price Prediction

Presently, we have seen the crypto market run (after the XRP vs SEC verdict), and this run is mainly led by the major large cap altcoins like ADA, XLM etc. As of August 22nd, 2023, the Cardano price is around 23 rupees or so, with its soaring popularity and market value, one wonders if ADA can reach INR 100 rupees.

Well, in the world of Cryptocurrency, nothing can be said with a full proof guarantee. What we as crypto enthusiasts can do is only make predictions based on the present values of a particular cryptocurrency.

How Does Cardano Work?

Crypto investors were waiting for a very long time for Cardano Mainnet to launch and it finally happened on September 12, 2021.

Cardano blockchain can now finally run smart contracts. It works on the proof of stake consensus mechanism. This mechanism used by them is called Ouroburo. Now you see, lately, we see that the cryptocurrency market is hyped up on the unique reward method called the proof of stake consensus.

But what is proof of stake? How is it different from the conventional method of proof of work used by Bitcoin? And how is Cardano working on the new method going to raise and maintains its credibility?

For this, we need to understand the dynamics of the Proof of work and proof of stake mechanism.

What is Proof of Work Mechanism?

You see, cryptocurrency works on sustaining the respective network blockchains. How is that done? For every transaction numerous supercomputers all around the world work toward validating blocks of transactions. Few validated transactions create blocks that form the blockchain of that particular cryptocurrency. Now the people who work on creating these blocks are known as miners. And it is these miners who are rewarded with the cryptocurrency on that particular blockchain- that is how the entire method is programmed.

But this is the general working of the system.

Practically it has multiple ways in which it works. One is the Proof of work: the more conventional and older way of miners being rewarded. And the other is the Proof of stake: the newer and apparently more credible way of validation.

Let’s understand both these methods with simple analogies.

Suppose there is a race with 8 participants. Now, these 8 participants exhibit unique characteristics of their own, while some of them possess weaker talents others have better privileges. For instance, one can be an untrained runner while his peers are trained. One can have branded running shoes while the other is not able to afford such shoes. Like this, situations can be different for different participants. Now, these different situations will have an impact on the results of the race because some players will have better advantages over others. In this race, there is only one winner and it is only that winner who is rewarded. There is no second or third position.

And this is what happens in the case of blockchains validation in the proof of work mechanism.

What is Proof of stake Consensus Mechanism Used by ADA?

Contrary to POW is the case of the Proof of Stake mechanism. Taking the same example, where the race will not be among all the eight participants. Rather one single participant will be chosen to run taking into account his or her characteristics. In the proof of stake mechanism, one miner is selected to complete the block. That catch is, that this miner has to stake a certain amount to be able to start this “race”. Now if the miner is successful then they will be rewarded as well as get back the staked amount. If not, then the miner will lose the collateral-staked amount as well.

The proof of stake mechanism is also seen as a greener alternative to the Proof of Work protocol. The reason is that the former method involves fewer miners to begin the mining process. This ensures less consumption of energy making the process more energy-efficient.

This method ensures a more secure way of validating transactions because it keeps the miners motivated with their deposits of collateral. And this is the method on which the Cardano cryptocurrency works.

Cardano’s Vasil hard fork has now triggered on 22nd of September, 2022. If you would like to read more about the Vasil Hard Fork upgrade and whats’s next for ADA, read this post.

The hard fork was scheduled to happen in June 2022, however, it was postponed by 3 months due to technical difficulties.

It is now trading close to 0.26USD at the time of writing (June 18th, 2023).

After falling from ATH of 2.96 USD to now trading at 0.26 USD, Cardano’s price has corrected by more than 90%.

History And Evolution Of Cardano

It was in 2015, when the co-founder of Ethereum, Charles Hoskinson started the development of Cardano. Cardano was launched in the market in 2017 by Hoskinson.

The blockchain is named after the renowned Italian mathematician called Gerolamo Cardano. And the native cryptocurrency of the platform ADA is named after the English mathematician Ada Lovelace.

Tidbit: The ADA has a subunit called Lovelace. 

1 Ada= 1,000,000 Lovelace

Initially, an initial coin offering was arranged to fund the Cardano project. The initial market cap of the currency when it was introduced in the market was 600 million dollars. By the end of 2017, it had managed to reach a market cap of 10 billion dollars. Later in 2018 for a short period, the market cap was near 33 billion dollars. After a temporary drop in the market cap where the value returned to 10 billion dollars, again it spared to 77 billion dollars in May 2021. And from there Cardano has remained the biggest proof of stake cryptocurrency.

Frequently Asked Questions on Cardano

Is ADA a good investment for August 2023?

Honestly speaking, ADA is a good long term investment.

Sometimes back, when SEC called ADA as a security, the price started falling and was trading very close to the bottom. However, after the SEC vs XRP verdict, ADA and other altcoins started showing positive movement, and is now bullish. We expect ADA to go up to $0.39USD by August 2023.

For anyone who can hold ADA till 2025, ADA could give good returns. In my opinion, long term, ADA should grow, as the blockchain ecosystem is just getting started.

Having said that, the Cardano blockchain is very new, and the market price of Cardano is quite high, compared to the stage of product’s development.

However, I would still have ADA in my portfolio because of the great community backing it, but I will not hold more than 0.5 percent of my entire portfolio in Cardano.

How high can ADA go?

As per Cryptobullsclub teams’ ADA price prediction, ADA could reach more than 11.96 USD by 2030, and in terms of INR, 1000 INR is likely. However, cryptocurrencies are volatile. and you should always take calculated risk.

Can Cardano hit 10USD?

We very much think Cardano could reach and even cross 10USD by 2030. For ADA to reach 10USD, it needs to do close to 30x. This will only happen, if we see a major adoption of cryptocurrencies. Cardano, as a blockchain smartcontract product, needs to do a tremendous development. Also, BTC should reach 100k.

What price will ADA be in 5 years?

5 years from now would be 2028. ADA in 2028 is expected to trade $0.96 and $0.23 in 2028. However, in 2025, ADA could reach maximum of $0.96.

Can ADA reach $1000?

Well, for ADA to be priced at $1000, Cardano needs to close to 3300X, which is highly unlikely. Please understand, if ADA reaches 1000USD, the fully diluted market cap would be 45,000,000,000,000USD (4.5Trillion USD), which I do not see it happening anytime before 2050.

Is ADA going to go up?

ADA is like any other cryptocurrency that goes up and down depending upon the market cycle. According to us, ADA will definitely go up from where we are now, but currently the trend is downwards.
