- ADA was up by over 7% in the last week, but bearish sentiment remained dominant.
- Cardano’s latest report highlighted the work done by different teams during the last week.
Cardano [ADA] investors were rejoicing last week as the token managed to earn them promising profits. While the token’s price gained bullish momentum, things on the development front also remained interesting as ADA developers pushed their efforts.
ADA is back on track!
According to CoinMarketCap, ADA showed remarkable performance last week as its value surged by more than 7.6%.
In the last 24 hours, the token went up by 2%. At the time of writing, ADA was trading at $0.5168 with a market capitalization of over $18.3 billion. Its price hike was accompanied by an 18% rise in volume, which legitimized the uptrend.
AMBCrypto’s look at Coinglass’ data revealed that Cardano’s open interest also increased of late. This suggested that the possibility of ADA’s price surging further was high.
Thanks to the price uptick, Cardano became a topic of discussion in the crypto space as its social dominance surged last week.
However, it was surprising to note that despite the rise in value, negative sentiment around the token was dominant in the market, which was evident from its low-weighted sentiment graph.
Cardano’s development is also on par
Apart from metrics and price action, things on the development front also looked promising. AMBCrypto’s analysis revealed that ADA’s development activity increased considerably over the last seven days.
Its development activity contributor count also spiked quite a few times during the same period.
Cardano recently published the latest edition of its weekly development report, shedding light on the reasons behind the rise in development activity.
Last week, the Hydra team conducted yearly roadmapping sessions and introduced a breaking API change in order to bring several new features.
Every Friday, we publish our weekly #Cardano development update.
