In terms of value, the cryptocurrency market as a whole, including Cardano (ADA), had a turbulent year in 2022. However, in the past twenty-four hours, the trade volume for ADA has reached around $250 million, while the Cardano (ADA) price has increased by almost 7% in a day. This is mostly attributable to the purchase of enormous quantities of ADA by whales as well as the project attracting the majority of development activity last year.
Cardano (ADA) Price Soars
The price of Cardano’s native token, ADA, has finally risen from a two-year low of $0.24, where it arrived after a prolonged four-week slide. ADA recovered a little over a third of its value in January of the new year after losing more than 25% of its value at the start of December 2022.
It’s possible that the expansion of the Cardano DeFi ecosystem was responsible for some of the positive movements in the price of ADA. According to data provided by DeFiLlama, Total Value Locked (TVL) has increased from its previous low point of $48.95 million on January 1 to its current level of $52.53 million.
Massive Whale Activity
The participation of larger ADA investors could be another factor contributing to the price increase. According to the statistics provided by WhaleStats, large BSC whales also have a significant interest in purchasing Cardano (ADA) tokens.
The 4,000 largest BSC whale purchases in the previous 24 hours have been attributed to ADA purchases, and therefore ranks within the top 10 list of mass whale activities. In addition, the top BSC whales have a combined total of 19.9 million ADA in their wallets, which is equivalent to $5.19 million at the current market price and accounts for 0.68% of the total supply.

Given that the development activity rates in Cardano’s public GitHub repositories in November were 18% higher than those of the next-ranked asset, which recorded 572.67 produced events, the most recent data are a confirmation of its prior performance.
As things stand, the Cardano (ADA) price is currently being traded at $0.28. This represents an increase of 0.2% in the past 1 hour, in contrast to a whopping 7.3% during the last 24 hours as per crypto market tracker CoinMarketCap.
