Cardano sees 16-month high accumulation

Cardano sees 16-month high accumulation


Cardano (ADA) has been experiencing a noteworthy surge in accumulation despite prevailing bearish sentiment in the market. 

Despite a 35% decline in its market cap over the last four months since the yearly peak, trader sentiment toward Cardano remains subdued. However, this hasn’t dissuaded large holders from showing a continued interest in the asset.

Per the data from Santiment, the number of wallets holding 100,000 or more ADA tokens has reached its highest level in 16 months, with a current count of 25,294 such addresses. 

This accumulation trend bucks the overall market sentiment, indicating a strong belief in Cardano’s prospects among big players.

Per data from Santiment, the surge in these high-value ADA addresses commenced in July 2022. This marked a significant turnaround following a drop from February 2021 to June 2022. 

Notably, the number of these addresses had dipped to a low of 23,190 on July 23, 2022, before the recent resurgence. Interestingly, this pattern has persisted amid Cardano’s roller-coaster ride. 

Despite ADA soaring to an all-time high of $3.1 in September 2021, the number of these high-value wallets continued to decline. This trend endured throughout ADA’s subsequent descent from the peak until July 2022. 

This uptick in accumulation by larger players showcases a belief in Cardano’s underlying value and potential for future growth. A similar pattern was recently observed among whale addresses holding between 100,000 ADA and 10 million ADA.

Meanwhile, ADA struggles to hold above the $0.29 price territory amid the uncertainty plaguing the broader crypto market. Cardano faced persistent declines over four days, shedding off 3.71% of its value from August 10 to August 13.

The asset now seeks to recoup these losses, but resistance from the bears has placed a roadblock to this recovery campaign. ADA is trading for $0.2905 at the time of reporting, up 0.38% today.
