Cardano is soaring, but can ADA gain another 380% to break its record high vs. Bitcoin?


Bitcoin (BTC) has been standardized in recent days, kick-starting the rest of the cryptocurrency market. This often happens as Bitcoin begins to consolidate, giving the rest of the market an opportunity to catch up.

Cardano (ADA) is one such cryptocurrency, which gained 170% in February alone as its price approached $ 1 for the first time ever.

However, a lot of information can be gleaned from the BTC chart as it is just starting to wake up from the bear market hibernation. The latest wave triggered a new spike higher – the highest since July 2018 – which is a great sign of the continuation of the uptrend.

However, the all-time high of the bitcoin pair is still 380% off. Of course, this would push its dollar value higher.

Altcoins have shown immense strength in their USD pairs, with many of them creating new all-time highs. However, bitcoin pairs from these altcoins still have significant bullish potential.

This means that the market may just start a new bullish cycle. In Cardano’s case, the Bitcoin pair is approaching a significant resistance area, where a breach does not appear likely. However, once the ADA price breaks through this resistance zone, it is expected to continue towards 0.00003500 sits.

Substantial correction usually occurs after a significant spike. Anyone with alternative digital currencies knows this well. Bitcoin’s dominance chart can frequently tell you when these corrections will occur.

Historically speaking, the best period to purchase altcoins is in December. This was confirmed again recently as altcoins started to make huge gains in the new year.

However, the chart also shows that bitcoin’s dominance relief rallies could take place before a further downtrend. Most often this occurs in February and March, when a healthy correction can be expected.

After this potential pullback, there is likely to be further upside for altcoins, particularly in their Bitcoin pairs.
