Cardano (ADA) price performance
The last few months have been exciting for Cardano. Not only has its network seen major developments but its price has also significantly risen. However, in recent weeks, the digital asset has slowed down largely influenced by the larger market. The token has recorded a significant drop in the last 24 hours losing roughly 10 percent. The weekend drop pushes the weekly loss above 20 percent. The token is trading at the $1.40 region marking close to a 50 percent drop from the year high of $2.46. Despite the drop, the coin is still holding on to the fifth spot by market cap.
Polkadot has recorded a marginally higher drop having lost over 10 percent in the last 24 hours which has pushed its weekly loss above 20 percent. The token is still clinging on to the top ten coins with a market cap of just under $20 billion. At the time of press, the token is exchanging for $20. DOT has seen a more than 50 percent drop from its ATH set about a month ago when the token reached as high as $49.
