It is evident that the market has now officially welcomed a cryptowinter. The market prices of various digital assets show this. However, as is expected, investors in the space are wondering how long this cryptowinter is expected to last. Goin by previous markets, it could be that the market is in for the long haul but Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson has provided his thoughts on how long he believes the bear will stay.
Prepare For Months Of Cryptowiner
With the price of major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Cardano down, speculations abound about when the bottom of the market will be reached. Mostly, the negative sentiment that has washed across investors in the space has not done much to help things as the prices continue to decline as a result. Nevertheless, this has not stopped some from trying to pinpoint when the market will reach its inevitable bottom.

Addressing the market in a new twee, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson has presented what he believes will happen to the market. The tweet that he starts out by welcoming those who this was their first cryptowinter also went further to put a timeframe on it. For the Ethereum co-founder, he believes that this downtrend will continue for weeks to months.
“If this is your first cryptowinter, then welcome,” said Hoskinson. “Been through many since 2011 and they always hit like a cold ice bath. We are in the panicked blood in the street phase. It clears in weeks to months as a bottom is found. Then a long climb up the ladder.”
ADA Continues To Suffer
Of all the digital assets suffering through cryptowinter, Cardano (ADA) has been one of the hardest-hit coins. The digital asset which had made its all-time high of $3.10 last year off the back of the launch of smart contract capability has shed most of that value by May of 2022. Data from Messari shows that the digital asset is currently down 85.39% from its all-time high.

Once bears had pulled the cryptocurrency below the $0.5, it seems all hope was lost for it to ever recover back to the coveted $1 level. What this had meant was the asset was now trading significantly below its 50-day moving average, an important indicator for short-term movement.

In the longer term, ADA continues to perform poorly. Sentiment has now skewed completely in favor of selling, making this a seller’s market. ADA investors have not been spared the bloodbath either as it is now one of the worst-performing in terms of profit, with more than 70% of investors holding bags of losses.
The digital asset is trading at $0.454 at the time of this writing.

Is Cardano’s [ADA] rally probable yet? The answer might impress you
Cardano’s [ADA] price has been under a strong bearish influence, especially since dropping from the vital $1.2-resistance. After falling below the 20 EMA (red) and 50 EMA (cyan), the altcoin was on a streak of liquidations while correlating with the broader sell-offs.
Altering the overall outlook was still a long shot for the bulls while they had to find renewed buying pressure to snap the constraints of the 23.6% Fibonacci resistance. At press time, ADA traded at $0.5307, down by 3.12% in the last 24-hours.
ADA Daily Chart
Aggressive sell-offs from the $1.2-ceiling resulted in a 67.35% drop from ADA’s April highs. As a result, after falling below its Point of Control (POC, red), ADA poked its 15-month low on 12 May. On its way south, the 61.8% Fibonacci level held up well after restricting the falling wedge breakout. While hampering the bear run, buyers finally induced a few green candles but failed to support it on elevated volumes.
Over the last six days, the altcoin saw an expected bearish pennant breakout as the price action approached the 23.6% level barrier. With an overextended gap between the 20 EMA and 50 EMA, the sellers exhibited their superior edge in the current scenario.
A continued revival from its immediate support could see an anticipated hurdle in the $0.59-zone near the 23.6% level. However, without sufficient volumes, the buyers would find it difficult to challenge the resistance offered by the alt’s near-term EMAs. The buyers would now aim to lower the gap between the 20/50 EMA in the coming days.
The Relative Strength Index suggested that sellers have a clear advantage in the current market structure. The buyers needed to push the RSI above the 38-level to propel a short-term rally beyond the 23.6% level on the charts.
An inability to pick Aroon up (yellow) from the zero-mark could lead to further undesired losses. AN eventual recovery from this level would open doorways for a smoother recovery.
Looking at the current bounce-back from the $0.5-level, ADA could slam into the 23.6% level for testing its resistance. An eventual break above this level could pave a path to challenge the constraints of its near-term EMAs. But the threats along the Aroon up indicator could delay the potential of a bull run.
At last, ADA shares a high correlation with the king coin. Thus, traders/investors should keep a close watch on Bitcoin’s movement to make a profitable move.
ADA holders perplexed as network clings to ‘hard work’ narrative with new…
Cardano’s promise of being ‘The DeFi Chain’ is nothing new under the sun, however, this promise may not be fulfilled anytime soon. Now, while the Cardano community is busy trying luck in the DeFi game, Cardano seems to be losing its faithful long-term investors.
Cardano and long-term holders
Cardano’s investors have been very loyal to their token, much more than that of SHIB’s and DOGE’s investors. These investors have not, for one moment, left the market despite the consistent price falls and crashes.
This is because their faith in Cardano as a blockchain is much stronger than the prevailing market conditions.
These people stood the test of the time when ADA crashed by over 47% on the charts adding to the ongoing downtrend since September 2021. The all-time high it marked then of $3.160 has since declined by more than 84.3%.
This has caused the investors to move around their assets in losses since the beginning of January 2022, affecting billions of ADA on the chain.
Consequently, the MVRV of Cardano plunged to a level of -4.6, the lowest it has been in 24 months (since April 2020). This clearly states that the token at the moment is undervalued.
Upset with the crypto market, some ADA holders even chose to sell. Long-term holders, who are usually considered the best friend of any cryptocurrency, panicked and sold a part of their ADA tokens and ended up destroying $1.27 trillion days in a single day on 3 May.
However, Cardano as a blockchain paid no heed to the same and remained unbothered by the panic selling since its focus is on just expanding the space.
For the same reason, the recently approved Fund 8 was voted upon to fund 367 proposals bringing the total number of projects funded by Project Catalyst to over 1,000.
The network already has over 20 DEXes and Liquidity protocols as well hundreds of other apps stemming from different branches of the crypto space.
This would serve as a massive boost for Cardano since, currently, the network only has $141.5 million locked on the chain. Now, when that changes for the better, the ongoing situation is also expected to improve as a result.
Cardano (ADA) Could Slide Back To $0.40 – But $0.68 Still Doable
Cardano (ADA) price looks bullish as it does a U-turn on Monday following negative economic spikes from China getting crypto traders all worried.
In addition, many major corporations are exiting Russia, including McDonald’s. All of these factors contribute to heightened risk sentiment making it entirely difficult for major cryptocurrencies to elevate in price than usual.
This could also mean bad news for ADA; risking a 32% correction. The negative sentiment has been growing enormously which also signal a downward trend in the next quarters.
As of this writing, the crypto is trading at $0.560514 on Coingecko, Wednesday, down 10% in the last seven days.

ADA Heading For A Nosedive Below $0.40
Tail risks pad up incessantly and it doesn’t seem to end which could mean ADA investors might head for the exit anytime soon.
ADA price is heading for a nosedive right below the $0.47 price point or at the low end of the distribution zone which could even reach $0.38.
On the brighter side, with the developments happening in the global economics and to the Cardano community, the first trading day of the week has shown promise of recovery. In fact, ADA price could possibly go towards $0.687 and move up to $0.915.

Even though Cardano suffered a massive drop during the past week, it managed to recover and reach $0.613 on May 16. Meanwhile, Cardano is currently shaking it off after its gains of 4%.

It went through a three-day bounce right there as shown over the weekend. The whale activity was seen for Cardano which signaled a deviation in price direction.
Cardano TVL is at around $174.74 million. Now, it may seem like the increase is totally insignificant but it’s a winning jump since it has been steadily declining from its peak TVL of $434.74 million in the first quarter or March 28.
The difference between cardano and the other alts. They pay to do stuff like this. The Cardano Community just does it themselves out of love for the ecosystem and philosophy. We got marketing. It’s three million strong and growing. https://t.co/cRdnmGZPZz

Cardano Flag On Mount Everest Summit
Charles Hoskinson, Cardano Founder, is loud and proud to have reached the Mount Everest summit. He was ecstatic about the raving support of the community. His remark saying “we got marketing,” definitely speaks volumes of his optimism despite the downward trend that ADA has displayed the previous days.
The Cardano CEO is proud to have a strong and dedicated community comprised of 3 million members and still growing. The native tokens of Cardano also went up to 4.7 million.
Moreover, Cardano has also managed to get $20 million more in funding since Mary 13. Its TVL has jumped from 18 million a few days ago to $137 million on May 16 – that is a 6% change of TVL in a matter of 24 hours.
