With a market valuation of $28.68 billion, Cardano (ADA) has claimed the 9th position in cryptocurrency market capitalization, surpassing Avalanche (AVAX). Despite recent inflows into its ecosystem, the coin beat Avalanche’s $22.28 billion to attain the title of 9th largest coin. As the value of Cardano’s ecosystem has skyrocketed, so too have funds flowing into it. From roughly $1.7 million in mid-January to a present-day total value locked (TVL) up at just under $315 million – or a 18420% increase. The Cardano team has entered the third phase of its construction, a process known as Basho, the Cardano’s next era after Alonzo. Cardano plans to release Hydra, a collection of Layer 2 solutions, as part of this phase. In this stage, Basho will update Cardano’s security and scalability.

As a result, the protocol can be vital in ensuring that there are no problems along the way towards becoming a fully decentralized network. Cardano Price Action And Ecosystem Inflows The Cardano ecosystem is booming with new funds, attracting nearly $150 million in March alone. With the surge of total value locked at over $314.87 million from roughly $168.95 million, big things are expected for this crypto project. Cardano’s TVL has increased by more than 80% in just two weeks. And It is currently worth $225.9 million without including staked governance assets. The increase was noted on February 28th through March 16th, when the number rose from $150 million to $314.87 million. The Cardano Minswap has seen a surge in total value locked (TVL) over the last week, with 121% more locked up than before. Cardano Minswap became the most significant protocol by flipping the SundaeSwap. The majority of funds on this network now reside at its Minswap decentralized platform–with $115 million currently locked.  Even as Cardano (ADA) continues to progress, the price has failed to catch up. The coin has been on a downward journey after reaching its ATH at $3.10 in September 2021.

However, $0.85 remains a vital resistance point. Because if investors can stay above that price level, they’ll see their investment rise towards testing another crucial milestone of $0.9.  Although, Cardano is still a long way from returning to its former price of $1. As investor sentiment remains negative and the current market favors sellers. Featured image from Pixabay, chart from Tradingview.com
