Cardano is out of the top 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies; What’s next for ADA?

Cardano is out of the top 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies; What’s next for ADA?

Toncoin (TON) has surpassed Cardano (ADA) in market capitalization, entering the top 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies in leading indexes. Cardano lost this position to the thriving competitor as bearish signals started rising for ADA in the past few days.

Notably, the cryptocurrency landscape shift happened as TON registered a $24.2 billion market cap against ADA’s $21.3 billion. The Finbold index retrieved this data from CoinGecko’s API on April 9, which displays a similar state.

Furthermore, the index shows Toncoin’s positive 7-day price performance, trading at $6.94, against Cardano’s negative action at $0.60.

Cardano still in CoinMarketCap’s top 10

However, Cardano still features as the 10th most valuable cryptocurrency in the market according to the CoinMarketCap index. The index discrepancy has raised doubts and controversy among the project’s supporters, but it has a simple explanation.

Essentially, each index provider can establish its own rules for arbitrarily ranking cryptocurrencies, which includes objective data or particular preferences. For undisclosed reasons, CoinMarketCap does not include Lido’s Stacked ETH (stETH) tokens on its first page, which CoinGecko does. 

Interestingly, both indexes recognize stETH capitalization at above $34.5 billion. Yet, CoinMarketCap places it in the 201st position, while CoinGecko ranks it 6th, according to its market cap.

ADA price analysis

In the meantime, Cardano’s native token, ADA, trades at $0.61 against the dollar, according to the TradingView crypto index.

Previously, Finbold reported ADA trading slightly above the $0.57 key support level. On that note, we explained that losing this support would be a bearish signal for the token.

Yet, Cardano resisted the downward breakout for now, and stages what could be a trend reversal, as it gains momentum.

Looking for further insights, Finbold turned to CoinCodex‘s machine-learning algorithm, which prices ADA at $0.626 on April 30. Therefore, despite temporary winning against the bearish signal of a possible support breakout, Cardano’s price forecast remains neutral for the rest of the month.

Investors now wonder if this will be enough for ADA to get back among the top 10 most valuable cryptocurrencies.
