In particular, the CoinMarketCap community has estimated that the ADA token would trade at an average price of $0.88 by the end of July 31, 2022, according to the ‘Price Estimates’ feature, which allows users to speculate on the future pricing of cryptocurrencies.
The community projects the price of decentralized finance (DeFi) July 31ill rise by a whopping 95.82% by the 31st of July from its present value at the time of publishing.
At press time, 20,482 community members had voted to arrive at the average estimate. In terms of estimates for the end of the following month – August – the community expects the price to be slightly lower, at $0.80, with 11,592 user votes.

As shown by charts and statistics, the current price of ADA is trading at $0.45, down 3.85% on the day and a further 8.13% across the previous week.

Vasil hardfork upgrade in July
Despite the downturn, Cardano has started the final preparations for the Vasil hardfork update after a successful launch on testnet. The Vasil hardfork may have an effect on the price of ADA by the end of the month, as historically the asset has rallied before a hardfork event.
Indeed, Charles Hoskinson the Cardano founder, labeled the Vasil hardfork as ADA’s biggest upgrade to the network and stated that the ‘stakes have never been higher.’
