Bitcoin stalls as markets drop, while ADA looks strong


Crypto at a glance

All eyes were on the Bitcoin-sponsored car in the 105th Indy 500 this weekend (it finished eighth), but while the BTC-adorned Chevrolet was busy leaving the competition behind, it was a stop-start weekend in the crypto markets. What does this week have to offer?

Bitcoin price appears to be hovering between $ 35,000 and $ 40,000 and is currently trading at around $ 36,000. It fell to $ 33,000 yesterday, its lowest level in over a week. It looks like there are still cracks from the decline over the past week and concerns about the environmental damage from Bitcoin mining continue to make headlines. Will we get better news this week?

It seems that Bitcoin is still putting some strain on the markets and other leading cryptocurrencies are following suit. Ether (ETH) continues to trade at around $ 2,500, compared to highs of just under $ 3,000 a week ago. It’s still up 10 percent over the past week, but there is still a long way to go before we can talk about new all-time highs.

Cardano (ADA) was the standout performer over the weekend. Prices rose almost 20 percent in a 24-hour period yesterday. It is currently trading at around $ 1.62 and is once again the fourth largest cryptocurrency by market cap after skipping Binance Coin (BNB) again. ADA relies on its references as “more sustainable” crypto, even though it’s down one percent today. Can it hold its position now?

“The world is changing, we all just have to understand that it is constantly changing and you can either be ahead of the curve or behind it, and I choose to be ahead of the curve. As someone who wants to be at the forefront of things, I will help create the trend, adopt it and see that the world is going in that direction. “
