- Cardano market capitalization has declined 35% since ADA price hit a local peak at $0.4610, nearly four months ago.
- There are now 25,294 wallets with over 100,000 in ADA token holdings.
- Bearish sentiment among ADA holders failed to deter large wallet investors from accumulating the altcoin.
Trader sentiment toward Cardano has changed over the past four months. The Ethereum alternative altcoin lost 35% of its market capitalization since it hit a local top of $0.4610 in April 2023.
The declining sentiment has failed to deter whales and sharks from scooping up ADA however. Based on data from Santiment, there are upwards of 25,000 wallets with 100,000 ADA, the highest number in the past 16 months.
Cardano enters accumulation phase
Cardano, one of the largest altcoins in the crypto ecosystem and an alternative to Ethereum, has entered the accumulation phase. Large wallet investors holding ADA have continued scooping up the altcoin, despite its consistent price decline over the past four months.
Cardano price hit its April 2023 top of $0.4610. Since then the altcoin’s price has been on a downward trend. The sentiment among ADA holders and traders has turned bearish alongside the decrease in its market capitalization and price.
Notably, the decline has no significant impact on whales and sharks. Data from Santiment sheds light on the accumulation by these classes of investors.
Cardano accumulation between May and August 2023
The number of ADA wallets holding more than 100,000 tokens hit a peak of 25,294 this month and appears likely to make a run at the early 2022 high shortly.
Accumulation of an asset is typically considered bullish for its price in the long term. At the time of writing, Cardano price is trading at $0.2907, below its three long-term Exponential Moving Averages – the 200, 50 and 10-day EMAs at $0.3432, $0.3035 and $0.2943.
