As the broader market suffered from profit-taking in the past few hours, altcoins like Cardano posted significant losses.
FTX Exchange on Wednesday, quoted Cardano at $2.0601, down 10.80% on the day. The loss was the biggest since September 7.
While it was flipped by Solana, ADA did not perform well until November 8. ADA bulls however demonstrated their vigour, rallying by over 30% on November 9, to hit another one-month high. As a result of the bears counteracting the increasing buying power, the price action witnessed a retracement.
During the downward move, Cardano’s market cap lowered to $70 billion, or 2.49% of the market valuation of all crypto assets combined. Its high valuation is $94.8 billion.
For the day, Cardano traded between $2.0586 and $2.3263.
Cardano has stagnated in value over the past seven days, moving only 1.49%. To date, Cardano has traded for $5.436 billion, or 3.63% of all cryptocurrency trades. In the past week, the price has fluctuated between $1.9437 and $2.3746.
Cardano’s current price represents a 33.52% decline from its all-time high of $3.10 on September 2.
