Market leader BTC, and ETH are hovering around previous levels. While most of top coins are in a sideways trade, Cardano has spiked around 16% ahead of smart contracts launch.
ADA hit as high as $2.79 in the last 24 hours. However, it has now corrected back to $2.59 at the time of writing. If ADA will fall deeper to retest levels or surge higher from here is to be looked out for.
Supporting the surge higher thesis are popular analyst’s. Micheal Van De Poppe in a recent tweet says, ADA has the potential to hit $5 after the massive bounce it saw yesterday.
