Cardano price is up nearly 10% in the last 24 hours
Cardano saw favorable price action over the previous year when it surged to an all-time high of $3.10 in early September. However, the seventh-largest cryptocurrency has been steadily falling and has dropped almost 70% of its ATH at current prices.
According to on-chain data analysis, the latest funding rate drop corresponds to the highest short-selling rate recorded on Binance as ADA surged to an all-time high of $3.10.
Although negative funding rates signify that the crowd expects prices to fall, Santiment believes they may have a positive undertone. This is because, in most cases, short liquidations or a “short squeeze” can cause prices to rise. As a result, negative funding rates could be a positive sign in the near term.
While short-term price changes are possible, a large number of trades, or trades worth more than $100,000, can help predict long-term price changes. Cardano saw a massive increase in significant transactions in May 2021 and September 2021, when it hit an all-time high.
In another development, ADA is added by Bitrue as a basic currency for ten pairs. Bitrue is a multi-product cryptocurrency ecosystem prevalent among the XRP Army.
