Despite the current consolidation in cryptocurrency prices this past week, many coins managed to retrace and adjust in prices upwards. When Bitcoin crashes, the whole market follows. This wasn’t the case this time for Cardano, which boomed and gained more than 30% in the past week. What happened to ADA prices? Will prices continue to climb despite the consolidation?

Why Cardano BOOMED despite the past crash?

The recent crypto crash was a harsh one. This price correction was bound to happen after an extended hike in prices for the past month. Therefore a breather was an imminent event. In fact, this is where major players take advantage of those price dips and make hefty crypto buys. The recent Square purchase of Bitcoins was definitely a piece of positive news, followed by the USD 1.5 billion purchase of MicroStrategy. Again this morning, news surfaced that the famous Coinbase exchange will go public. Ergo, the whole market adjusted in prices upwards.

Despite no SPECIFIC news about Cardano, this coin was seen moving to higher territories, paving its way to becoming the 3rd largest cryptocurrency by market cap, and thus surpassing Binance Coin. This price pump would most definitely be good technicals alined by a community that’s been eager to pump this promising coin further.

Is a potential correction for ADA about to happen?

Looking how the price of Cardano boomed 30% in the past 7 days, prices are bound for a small pullback to the black uptrend line in figure 1. Current price of ADA is USD 1.456. If no other fundamentals get in the way, prices might retrace to USD 1 at worse.
