2021 has been really surprising for cryptocurrency enthusiasts due to the exponential growth of Cardano (ADA) cryptocurrency. As per the latest crypto projections, in the first quarter, Cardano maintained a position just behind Bitcoin and Ethereum despite the fact that it is new in the competition and lacked many functionalities. From building a loyal follower base on top social media apps such as Reddit to inspiring new memes, Cardano had surprised everyone with its outstanding growth at the beginning of this year.

In this blog, we are looking into the background of Cardano to know about it in-depth. We will also look at a few ADA pricing trends that we witnessed in 2021 to understand why the crypto projections of Cardano shocked everyone.

What is ADA crypto (Cardano)?

Cardano is a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain platform, an alternative to proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain platform. Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Ethereum, is credited to begin the development of Cardano. His purpose was to build a blockchain platform that is less dependent on the hardware infrastructure. In terms of Scalability and Sustainability, PoS systems are more reliable and less costly. Also, PoS is capable of offering a better transaction time as well. 

Cardano uses PoS Ouroboros Census Protocol to run. Moreover, Ouroboros is also the first secured PoS protocol that was also reported by Scholarly Academic Research. 

Cardano was launched in 2017 and is mainly used for smart contracts. Cardano is also making identifying management and traceability easier by providing an efficient tool that can collect and secure data, and then audit it. ADA, on the other hand, is Cardano’s digital currency named after Ada Lovelace, a mathematician and countess from the 19th century. Ada Lovelace is also famous as the first computer programmer who wrote scientific and mathematical journals much ahead of the time she was born into. 

Cardano price predictions

price of cardano
As per the report published on Statista, Cardano forecasts in November 2020 has started seeing a rise in its value. From $0.18 in December to $0.37 and then $1.35 in Feb was the point when it grabbed the attention of investors from all over the world. The highest Cardano price was in August 2020 at $2.79. Since then, by Dec 09, 2021, Cardano was valued at $1.4.

In the first quarter of 2021, Cardano saw an extensive bloom in its rates and popularity. Compared to January 2021, by December, the price of Cardano has grown up to 620%. And as per forecasts by Coin Price Forecast, it might increase by up to +824% by the end of the year.  Cardano price prediction done by the same company also says that the value of Cordana might touch $3.49 at the beginning of 2025.

Now, another Cardano forecast source, Trading Education also estimates that ADA’s expected price in 2022 might hit a stunning value of $7.89. And even the decline in Cardano coin prices might not let it go below approximately $6.68 in 2022. But this ADA’s expected price might impact Cardano’s future prices in upcoming years.

How high can Cardano go?

Well, if we look at previous ADA price projections, the prices have increased by more than 6000%. And as Cardano releases more upgrades, which are already planned, Cardano forecasts expect it to reach a value of $9 approximately by 2025. 

Conclusion- What’s the catch?

Well, Cardano has the potential of reducing blockchain’s dependency on hardware But, the fact that it is still under development and has not reached its potential can become a hurdle for the ADA cryptocurrency moving forward in time. Even though its previous trends show exponential growth, prices have already retreated and witnessed a downfall by the end of November. Thus, to make solid ADA predictions, it will be necessary to monitor its performance in 2022 as well. Now, there are still many experts like Price Prediction that estimate that ADA has the potential to reach an average rate of $40.62 by 2030.
