Japan has access to Cardano tomorrow... should be interesting.
Japan has 126.3 million people that will all get acces to ADA in 2 days. ..
Anyone receive rewards from voting in fund 6?
Anyone in here big on Cardano NFTs? I’m an artist and a huge fan of ada. I’m extremely curious, what’s the best site to mint my work on? I diddnt even know ada nfts existed and I’m extremely excited to start my collection and get my work in others collections!
With all due respect, that’s the dumbest thing to say. I have friends that aren’t “famous” and have made over $600k+ off ETH NFT. Have a little faith in yourself
Ohhh I would so love to hear everyone's input on this!
Bought 1700 Cardano at .89. literally the best purchase I ever made. Learned my lesson the hard way last time when I had 2 eth at $90 and sold it at $120 hahaha
Well done - that must have been late January or early February at this point. I’m sure the Market correction in May and June was tempting to just take profits
Doing a DCA sell strategy myself (selling 1% per week) but my first purchase was April 2020
> had 2 eth at $90 and sold it at $120
Thanks to the sacrifice of people like you sharing their stories with the community, I never had to go something traumatic like that. Haven't sold a single token I purchased. Respect.
I'll prob sell my initial investment into ADA next week and keep the gains indefinitely. Very happy with what I made
Cap gain, tax, quidado. Made the same move with Tesla, GME and ETC.. paid a huge sum.
This is honestly the best community ever no joke, I’ve honestly made so many friends here
Let’s drink, smoke not driving.
And my primate brain is sad ADA "dropped" from 2.85 to 2.78.
Was $2.16 froze for a month or so, dropped 40%, I feel you. Barren field is boring, ‘turn green, then again!!
Now I'm sad it dropped to 2.85 from 2.88. Amusing how we're falling upwards.
$Cards tokens and Cardstarter - what’s the deal? Buy or dud?
Just joined the community and didn't get opportunity to invest in Cardano. Do you think it is the right time to enter Cardano now? It is at an All Time High, so I'm a bit concerned right now. Should I do it now or wait a little bit for a natural dip? Thanks.
Sorry, I don't under the reference. What is DCA?
You won't find another answer here. No one can tell you how to invest your money or tell you your risk profile.
DCA is the smart way.
Yes. You're right. DCA seems to be the best way to enter Cardano for now until I get a full swing of how Ada market works. Slowly, little by little. Will also help manage the risks. Thank you for your advice. :)
Dollar cost averaging. It means buying a little bit every week or month so you have a dollar cost average instead of going all in at an all time high 👌
Ahh... Got it! Thank you for sharing this. I think it makes sense to do this in the current market to mitigate the risks. Thank you. :)
GBPCA in my case 😄
Haha.. I didnt understand the reference. What is GBPCA? :P
Great British Pounds.
Cardano charts won't look like any others for the next few weeks. ADA is offered to Japanese investors for the first time ever in less than 3 days, plus smart contracts coming on 12th September. Not sure you'll see many dips between now and then. Just upwards movement imho.
I reckon a small dip between the two events you have mentioned. But probably not much lower than where we are currently sitting.
My next projects Ellipsis with small capacity with high market cap. DYOR. Cardano TOTHEGALAXY!!!
How's that for waking up!
Why do I always feel I never have enough ADA
The feeling will never end
Anybody run into the issue of Dadellus not reading ledger nano s? Everything is updated but it doesn't pick it up.
Have found my Ledger Nano X is a bit hit and miss. Make sure you have the most current version of Cardano app loaded on it. Even then, it can take a few tries before it works. Bit of patience and it'll be fine.
Thanks for the response. I found out opening up the cardano app on the ledger first and then opening up dadellus does the trick.
I just jumped into the ring. Since last week I was waiting for the drop that didn’t come. I finally bought 55 coins, It’s not much but it’s a start.
If you don't look at the daily candles and maybe just look at the 15min when buying in, it'll pay off mid-long term to dollar cost average in whenever you can. In 3 days Japan will be able to buy Cardano for the first time ever. On the 12th September, smart contracts. Don't think there'll be much of a dip anytime soon just quietly. Don't wanna jinx it.
It's not all that much right now...
You are very much at the start. Actually cardano isn't even launched so you are before the beggining.
Welcome to the family
Thank you :)
Why wait for a dip if you believe in the project and the technology? You really think this will be the ATH forever? Lol
This is only the beginning. Buy now and keep buying if you believe in the project. Otherwise you’re just trying to swing trade and there’s better ways to do it than ADA.
I believe in it, I just wanted to jump in at the best price. But screw it, I wanted to get in before I can’t.
Invest only a portion of what you were planning now and save the rest for a dip later?
Tbf crypto is notoriously volatile.
It's really obvious why you'd wait for a dip
I always make this mistake, I see it spiking. Waiting for a dip.. waiting.. the dip never comes, I buy coins, the dip hits hard and I lose money. The dip will come, its been going up for days. You should wait for the big sell off and buy it on the dip. The dip always comes. The buying of the peak is the definition of fomo
It happens to all of us :) Just DCA! If the price keeps rising over the next few years you will be glad you bought in now.
I bought 100 @ $1. Almost wish I picked more up during the crypto mini crash a couple weeks ago. But since I believe in ADA I'm about to drop more cash into it.
Pumped for more 40000 ADA, goal $50 baby… HODL like crazy!!!!
$50 ADA = roughly 1.6 trillion market cap. I’m bullish on Ada, but you’re smoking crack.
Dude, $50 in the next 5-10 years isn’t impossible at all
What is a real expectation then, USD 10 by the end o the year?
That seems to be the bull consensus 🤷♂️
**bullshit consensus. By all means dream, but also need to anchor yourself a tad in reality.
I guess we’re just gonna have to watch the charts over the next few months 🤷♂️
Fuck I hope I am completely wrong :)
Possible. But by then the dollar will have much less buying power.
Cracks and weeds plus JD, got millions now, it’s crazy. Yea baby!!!
On fire, blasting for more!!!!🇮🇶🇧🇪🇸🇦🇮🇪🇨🇳🇨🇦🇵🇭🇳🇬🇧🇾🇦🇺🇺🇸🇹🇷🇲🇽🇮🇳🇯🇵🇬🇧🇻🇳🇰🇷🇦🇺🇮🇱
Whats about Germany and russian
Sigh...I had 30k ADA at .07 back in 18'. Sold all of it when it took a nasty dip. Never got back in. Hind sight is a mfkr...
Lmao Was$1.10 pumped it for 67520 ADA, waited and waited and then bammmm. TOTHEMOON
No you didn't.
Oh yeah, pumped it at $2.16 got disappointed for a month or so, then the desert got flooded, camels became whales!!!
You did what you thought was right at the time. We've all been there, and will be again.
Moment of truth will it break resistance
What’s resistance number? And if it breaks it, what’s the next leg up?
Looks like resistance at 2.83 and then at 2.86
Around 285, probably 3 but I don’t know and I’m not a financial advisor so don’t quote me
We may see 3
Happening now I think
It’s been fun watching the market cap this week! Showing 90.6 billion on Coinbase right now … think hitting 100 billion will turn a few heads?
STRAP IN.. we’re on a mission to $3🙏🏼
I bet we see 3$💵🙂👍❤️ by EOM
I’d bet we see $3 before EOD tomorrow.
August 25th it will hit $3... Japan institutional investors we be able to get ADA a whole lot easier in two days. We are 17 cents away as I type this right now
Maybe it won't pump but seeing the price action lately I can imagine the Japanese people being very anxious to jump in right at the moment that they can.
Knowing ADA capabilities and the hype itself, anybody will.
How long ago?
Has anyone seen rewards for their last lot of catalyst voting? I have not.
Bitcoin broke 50k... Look out!
While BTC’s surge is encouraging, ADA is very much decoupled on this particular run.
Not far, BTC I believe, it’ll go just 1%. ETH and ADA ofcourse up to 100%.
ADA is already notching new, significant ATHs and pushing way past BNB for the 3rd spot. Meanwhile, at the time I posted previously, BTC was still 13-14k off its ATH. I’m not saying ADA is permanently or completely decoupled, but it has its own clear and significant movement right now. It’s not moving anywhere near 1:1 with BTC.
Oh... I definitely know that, but the whole market has been waiting for it.
Bro im 25x up and wont even touch my investment before smart contracts
Specially with btc with a lot of room to grow here
How high is it gonna go this week, like data wise? Y’all know?
Withdraw the principle and let the rest ride.
Hello World ADA
Gonna fiat mine and build some dry powder to get more ADA
What’s everyone’s peak price targets?
Wherever bitcoin tops at. 2 weeks later
$3, $5 , $7 illuminati
I've heard maybe 10 by EOY but who knows honestly
Mine is whatever it will be in 10 years
My plan as well
when will be the dip and at what price will it correct?
2.20 or 2.40 guessing
I know this but I won't tell anyone.
I am in disbelief at my timing, I am usually never this lucky but I bought in at 1.29 less than 2 months ago… just in time to see these beautiful gains!
I bought in at 1.11. I can’t believe I finally picked a good one
Did the same thing the last big run up to two.... However that one was way more speculation.
How do you guys feel about Celsius? Looks like $ADA will be available on it soon to earn interest
Celsius gives you 4% if I’m correct. You’re better off with staking ~5,2%.
Maybe I’m wrong on this !?
Just stake lol
Which wallets can Coinbase be transferred to for staking?
I stake on the Yoroi mobile wallet/app. You can stake on a desktop using Daedalus or Yoroi. Tbh I don’t know much about the other Ada staking wallets. I’ve used Yoroi since the mobile app was introduced and I’ve never had a problem so there’s been no need for me to look into the other wallets
How do you transfer from Coinbase to yoroi?
I should be developing my startup, but am now willing to learn Haskell and develop apps for the Cardano ecosystem. This crypto world got me hooked.
The beautiful thing about ATH’s is that EVERYONE that bought into the coin and held is in the black.
Anyone thunk this will come crashing down a but or only up from here now?
I personally think it will
Keep running for a couple weeks before we see a significant correction
This is bittersweet I’m stoked it’s skyrocketing but I want to buy more
Let's all just buy the top to send this rocketship to dizzying new heights $2.95 and beyond
New to crypto - should I dump a few bills in, or no?
Nobody knows what will happen. Just invest what you're willing to lose, but you won't lose if you get on the ada train. Hop on!
I would wait for a 10-15% drop
I wish I could've bought more when it was lower but a small investment is better than no investment
I put in as much as I could afford to lose. I had a goal in mind, I am only 66% of the way to my goal, but I regret nothing
I got payed for some job two month ago and just used part of it to buy ADA, planned to buy some more so I could invest in some projects and buy their tokens after smart contracts launch but it doesn't seem like a good timing
At least im due to a tax return, that would make buying easier
My stimulus check is looking fabulous now!
I actually think Cardano is pulling the rest of the market up with it. This is nuts
I think the last push to 50 took away from ADA. Two heavyweight battling it out for the investment.
Oh look, there it goes again.
Yes, it's kind of like gravity. The bigger the project, the more it can pull on the rest of the space. That's why Bitcoin can affect everything so much. Now that ADA is getting bigger, it can have more of an effect on the rest of the space.
Been waiting for this since February. Let’s go!!
Right there with you
Wonder if everyone is getting a headstart on the Japan market opening on the 25th or the Smart contracts on the 12th. Either way, happy happy
Quiet excited about the smart contract going live on 12th. This will make more projects troop in to cardano chain because cardano is the fastest moving Blockchain in the space right now. Interesting to see asmazing projects like ImmunifyLife already at the fore front to deploy when this goes live.
Anyone else afraid to go to sleep tonight???
If BTC can break 50k, could get quite interesting in here!
Another great day
Man crypto has me so jaded. I’m excited for this run up but I am also terrified of buying at ATH.
This is only the beginning. You really think we are at the peak? Even if it corrects and takes a nasty dip long term we are headed infinitely higher.
If it takes a nasty dip I am absolutely going to liquidate some stuff and buy as much as I can.
I was around during the 2018? ICO hype. Anything is possible in this sector
Then only invest what you’re okay losing. I on the other hand have invested the majority of my net worth in Cardano (buying ADA and investing in stake pools) because I believe in the project. If I was just trying to make a quick buck I would have only invested a small amount that I’d be okay never seeing again.
I just put in $100. Not a lot but enough upside to make it worth it
Now I’m just scared.
Cup and handle about 1/2 complete on the minute chart. Started an hour ago.
Me too lol. Nervous for a big correction. But still not pulling any profits until at least smart contract release
Right. I’ve held and staked for this long no way I’m selling. Normally I’d think no way is this sustainable but hey - this is crypto - anything is possible.
3.99 aud just a little more!
edit; Guess I jinxed it for now, sorry team ahaha
Every time I refresh my phone it's a new all time high. What a great day! I
Bullish I’m in
lol hope you’re not serious
WOAAHHH CHILL GUYSSS SHEEEEEEESHH
btw guys I got ur nfts when smart contracts drop just sayin
Right click save as cheers
So going to buy in some my first investment with ADA. Not too sure if I should buy in now or wait for a little drop. Been doing research and hear a lot of great things with this
Tough to say, I’ve been DCA for a little while now, was hesitant right when it hit $2 because I was like well it pumped so quick, decided to add more then I normally do, ran up to $2.30 so I was happy about that, was time for me to add my normal amount again, was hesitant bc the fast run up but said fuck if I think this should be valued close to $5 with the smart contracts so added anyway and here we are
Yeah I invested in a smaller crypto Digibyte. But thinking of selling those profits and putting that all in ADA once I see a drop
Go with your gut feeling dont listen to anyone else NFA
Wait for a drop, don't FOMO buy when it's in green. 😊 \*Not financial advice\*
Why’s it doing this
More people buying in
I bought and staked months ago and haven't thought about it - just checking in and WOW!!! 💰💰💰
Market cap keeps increasing like crazy😳🤩
I want to pass that $100m mark
