Cardano price is falling amid possible delisting from Robinhood

12:08 PM June 7, 2023
  • The seventh-largest cryptocurrency on the market, Cardano (ADA), is falling to levels not seen since late March. 
  • According to the SEC, Cardano is a security, and the Robinhood exchange is considering delisting some of the cryptocurrencies designated as securities by regulators - to avoid potential regulatory problems
  • Some investors accuse the project of a lack of clear growth despite a nearly $13 billion market capitalization
  • Onchcain data shows higher activity and accumulation by larger investors

Project developer Charles Hoskinson indicated that the project is developing at the right pace and much of the developers' work is not visible to the 'naked eye' from the outside. More recently, Cardano has been working on the Marlowe project, which could potentially facilitate the entire construction and bring smart contract adoption to the financial sector. The IOHK organization behind Cardano has indicated that Marlowe has already been audited both internally and externally to meet security requirements.

The regulator claims that Cardano is only ostensibly decentralized while nearly 17% of the supply is in the hands of a few entities that regularly conducted sales to finance the development and marketing of the project - through unregistered sales of securities. Cardano was thus supposed to meet the conditions of the so-called Howey test: "investment of assets, in a joint venture, with the expectation of profit derived from the efforts of others."

According to IntoTheBlock, Cardano saw an increase in large transactions over the past 24 hours where the total number of Cardano token (ADA) trades increased by 5.8 million to 63.57 million Cardano (ADA) . The number of large transactions, above $100,000, increased to 14,780 or (4,790 more than the previous day). Buying activity in terms of Cardano inflows into large portfolios also increased by 123.6% yesterday compared to June 5 (part of the transactions were due to portfolio splits - a total of 6.61 million net inflows). 

CARDANO price again fell below the SMA200 (red line) suggesting a possible test of $0.30 where we see previous price reactions and the 71.6 Fibonacci retracement of the December 2022 upward wave. The chart also somewhat resembles an head and shoulders formation, with the neckline running through at the aforementioned $0.30 level. Source: xStation5
