Cardano price is ready for a rally, analysts argue

Analysts evaluated Cardano price and predicted a rally in the altcoin. The Vasil hard fork is a key event influencing the Ethereum-killer’s price, and analysts consider it a bullish catalyst for Cardano. Bob Mason, a leading crypto analyst and trader believes Cardano price is heading towards a breakout once it makes it past the $0.46 pivot. 

Cardano price could begin its rally in the broader crypto market. In case of an extended rally, Cardano is likely to test its second major resistance at $0.48 and the third at $0.498, right before the bullish target of $0.50.
