A majority of the assets locked on Cardano are contributed to the decentralized exchange SundaeSwap (SUNDAE). The exchange has witnessed an increase of more than a 65% over the past month, and currently holds $118.7 million worth of assets, as of this writing.
Despite the new milestones reached in terms of TVL, Cardano’s price has been strugging to recover and break the $0.96 resistance level, which could potentially lead to a trend reversal should ADA manage to break past it.
Cardano tested the $0.99 level on Tuesday, March 1st, but lacked the strength for a further rally. ADA’s price decreased by more than 13% through the last three days, hitting $0.86 on Friday 4th.
Cardano (ADA)’s current price is hovering at similar levels as seen in February 2021. Cardano had rallied by 243% in 2021 to record an ATH of $3.09 on September 2nd, 2021, however ADA quickly slumped as the market struggled toward the end of the year, and is now 71.4% down from its record high at the time of publishing.
