Cardano large wallet investors are scooping up ADA at a fast pace

Based on the chart from Santiment, whales holding between 10,000 and 100,000 coins and 100,000 and 1,000,000 ADA have scooped up ADA over the past two months.

Three bullish catalysts for Cardano in 2023

Cardano holders are looking forward to three bullish catalysts: the launch of Hydra, Cardano’s layer-2 scalability solution, Djed, the ecosystem’s stablecoin and more bridges connecting the blockchain network, Oracles. 

The Ethereum-killer’s developers are working on the development roadmap for the altcoin. Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Cardano, has assured the community that the altcoin is on track to meet its developmental milestones in 2023. 

Cardano price outlook remains bullish

Cardano price has surpassed its two Exponential Moving Averages at 50-day and 200-day, implying ADA is on track to the $0.4180 bullish target. The altcoin’s price is in an ascending channel, and the Relative Strength Index (RSI), a momentum indicator, is 77.90, implying the asset is overbought. 

Based on the ADA price chart below, the $0.3008 and the $0.3059 are the two resistance levels for the Ethereum-killer.

A decline below the 200-day EMA at $0.2760 could invalidate the bullish thesis for the altcoin. Based on data from the RSI, Cardano is overbought, implying the asset could witness a bearish trend reversal if bulls fail to push the price higher.
