In addition to automated chart patterns, altFINS’ analysts conduct technical chart analyses of top 30 cryptocurrencies. We call these Curated Charts and they evaluate 5 core principals of technical analysis: Trend, Momentum, Patterns, Volume, Support and Resistance.

Cardano (ADA) Trends

Cardano (ADA) Performance

Cardano (ADA) RSI & MACD

Cardano (ADA) technical analysis:

Trade setup: Price is in a downtrend. It bounced off of $0.35 support and there was a bullish RSI divergence as price made a lower low but RSI made a higher low. That was followed by a bounce up. Now, price broke above $0.42 resistance and could revisit $0.50 next. Stop Loss at $0.39. (set price alert)

Pattern: Resistance Breakout. Once a price breaks above a resistance zone, it signals that buyers have absorbed all the supply from sellers at this level and price can resume it’s advance. Following a resistance breakout, the next closest resistance zone becomes a price target. Learn to trade key level breakouts in Lesson 7.

Trend: Short-term trend is Up, Medium-term trend is Down and Long-term trend is Strong Down.

Momentum is Bullish ( MACD Line crossed above MACD Signal Line) ABOVE days ago. Price is neither overbought nor oversold currently, based on RSI-14 levels (RSI > 30 and RSI < 70).

Support and Resistance: Nearest Support Zone is $0.40, then $0.35. Nearest Resistance Zone is $0.50, then $0.57.

What is Cardano (ADA)?

Find full description and news on altFINS platform.


A smart-contract platform that is open-source and layered in design, Cardano strives to offer a variety of capabilities. Network delegation, sidechains, and lightweight client data structures will soon be possible thanks to its modularization. To protect the network and oversee the block creation process, it employs a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) variant dubbed Ouroboros. The network uses a native currency called ADA that lets users pay for transactions and grants stakers a claim on fresh issuance in proportion to their holdings.


An open-source blockchain called Cardano was developed as a result of peer-reviewed academic research. It was created from a number of scholarly articles and does not have a single published white paper. As an upgrade from Bitcoin and Ethereum, which were the first and second generations, respectively, Cardano considers itself to be a “third-generation” protocol. It bears Gerolamo Cardano’s name, an Italian Renaissance mathematician. Its national currency, the ADA, is named after Ada Lovelace, a 19th-century mathematician who is frequently referred to as the first computer programmer.

Three organizations—IOHK, The Cardano Foundation, and Emurgo—support Cardano. Charles Hoskinson and Jeremy Wood formed the blockchain research and development firm IOHK, which has a contract to work on it from 2015 to 2020. A nonprofit with an emphasis on ecosystem expansion and core development is the Cardano Foundation. A Japanese venture capital business is called Emurgo. Five phases will make up Cardano’s entire launch: Byron, Shelley, Goguen, Basho, and Voltaire. The Cardano blockchain’s mainnet debut in September 2017 marked the beginning of the Byron era. The chain was a federated network that could only enable ADA transactions during this time. Bringing Cardano’s planned Ouroboros Proas Proof-of-Stake (PoS) protocol to life, the following phase, Shelley, started in July 2020. Its third phase, Goguen, which will provide functionality for smart contracts and native token issuance, is now in the process of being released. Parallel to Goguen, the network’s two remaining stages, Basho and Voltaire, are being developed by the IOHK and Emurgo development teams.


A settlement layer and a computation layer make up the two levels of the Cardano blockchain. Transactions made by peers in the network are settled using ADA, the network’s native currency, through the Settlement Layer (CSL). Smart contracts and decentralized apps are supported by the Computation Layer (CCL), which is designed for them. To boost the network’s ability to adopt protocol updates and soft forks, developers developed a layered protocol. Haskell is used to create Cardano. Plutus, a different programming language that enables the creation of more stringent contracts, is used to develop smart contracts.

Supply Curve Details

A 45 billion ADA supply limit exists. There are now about 31 billion ADA available, leaving 14 billion for network incentives. The network’s decreased capacity for monetary expansion is made up for through Cardano incentives. As network usage grows, incentives rise.

Consensus Details

Once it enters the “Shelley” period, Cardano will utilize a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus method dubbed Ouroboros. The modularized design and enhanced network security of the Ouroboros consensus are its goals. Network delegation, sidechains, and light client data structures are all made possible by its modular design. the Ouroboros shape Slot leaders, who are chosen by token owners with a substantial stake in the network, decide on the ouroboros consensus. In order to build blocks, which are subsequently authorized by input endorsers, slot leaders work in epochs to listen for and confirm transactions. The second group of stakeholders that confirms the transactions included in blocks is known as a Cardano input endorser. Since the network may expand the number of slots each epoch and run numerous epochs simultaneously, it is thought that this design is scalable.
