Cardano, Stellar Lumens’ volatility falls as trends now on the brink of reversal
The global markets saw the price of crude oil crash to $0 on 20 April, a development that caused a lot of frenzy in the market. While many reasons were attributed to this fall, probably the most pertinent was the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. However, while the aforementioned fall was limited to the oil market, volatility continued to prevail in the crypto-market.
The 15th largest coin on CoinMarketCap with a market cap of $895.11 million, Cardano has been reporting -1.04% in YTD returns. The coin was in an upward trend, with the price climbing from $0.0236 to $0.034 as the trend highlighted a similar bullish wave. According to the MACD indicator, ADA has been enjoying the bullish side of the market over the past few days, but with the MACD line and signal line close to each other, a reversal in trend is imminent in the near future.
Just recently, the CEO of IOHK Charles Hoskinson expanded on the launch of the Shelley era of Cardano. With the launch of Shelley, the following eras on Cardano’s roadmap will be easier to implement.
