What is ADA/USD?

ADA/USD is a currency pair that represents the exchange rate between Cardano (ADA), the native cryptocurrency of the Cardano blockchain, and the United States dollar (USD). This currency pair is used in cryptocurrency markets to determine the value of one ADA in terms of US dollars. The exchange rate for ADA/USD can fluctuate based on supply and demand in the cryptocurrency markets, news, and various other factors that impact the value of Cardano and the US dollar.

Cardano was founded by Charles Hoskinson, one of the co-founders of Ethereum, and the project emphasises peer-reviewed research and academic input to create a more secure and scalable blockchain.

As Cardano uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm, which is known to be more energy-efficient, ADA is often considered more environmentally friendly than cryptocurrencies that use a Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus mechanism, such as Bitcoin. The energy efficiency of Cardano's PoS system makes it more environmentally friendly in terms of carbon footprint. It also aligns with the growing concern about the environmental impact of cryptocurrency mining.

ADA/USD historical performance

While still among the top ten largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, ADA is trading at a price more than 90% below its all-time high of $3.10 on September 2, 2021. It has been range-bound for the past year, unable to surpass its value of 40 cents at the end of 2021, which preceded its precipitous rise in the previous bull market.

What affects the price of ADA/USD?

Cardano's price can be correlated with the broader cryptocurrency market. If Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, experiences significant price movements, it often has a ripple effect on other cryptocurrencies, including ADA.

Investor sentiment also plays a significant role in the price of Cardano. Positive news, developments, or a general bullish sentiment in the cryptocurrency market can drive up prices, while negative news or a bearish sentiment can lead to price declines.

Like any other asset, the price of Cardano is influenced by the basic economic principle of supply and demand. If there's a high demand for ADA and a limited supply, prices tend to rise.

Regulatory decisions and legal developments can influence the price of Cardano and other cryptocurrencies. Positive regulations can provide a sense of security and legitimacy, while negative ones can lead to uncertainty and fear among investors. For example, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) crackdown on crypto with lawsuits against Binance and Coinbase included classifying Cardano as an unregistered security, which was negative news for the price of ADA/USD.

What to watch out for when trading ADA/USD?

  • Bitcoin price movements.
  • Central bank decisions, such as those made by the US Federal Reserve regarding interest rates.
  • Inflation data as high or unexpected inflation can lead investors to seek alternative assets like cryptocurrencies as a hedge against currency devaluation. Monitoring inflation data releases can provide insights into potential demand for Cardano.
  • Unemployment and Labour Market Data Economic indicators related to employment and jobless claims can impact investor confidence and consumer spending, which can indirectly affect the cryptocurrency market, including Cardano.
