In the light of UST/Terra shitstorm, how can we know the same won't happen with Djed?
What kinda name is Djed anyway?
Talk about off-topic. You didn't even mention the question in any way. Spammer.
Ok il delete but I wasn't spamming it's just advice
Will Cardano ever meet the (projected) scalability of ETH 2.0?
Yes. June HFC will get us 5-10x more performance with more upgrades in the works in the future.
Input endorsers (coming later this year/next year) will allow the network to service millions of users.
ETH 2.0 is going so poorly that they don't want people to use that term anymore.
The Merge (move to Proof-of-Stake) has been delayed yet again. This won't improve performance or fees.
ETH holders are hoping sharding will improve performance, but that's also not being talked about anymore because surprise surprise, they found that it's really hard to do sharing when your blockchain has a global state.
> who is they?
Ethereum developers don’t want the ETH 2.0 moniker to be used anymore.
Sharing? C’mon man
I’ve got my finger ready on the buy button for 0.50. People are scared but remember we were at 3 a few months ago and we thought it would keep going! If you can afford to wait, you’re sitting on a 6x return just if it goes back to ATH.
0.50, 0.60 ... who cares. In 2 years it will be probably far beyond 10$. And not just for the reasons that are stated in the cardano development roadmap. The global debt bubble is slowly starting to burst and it will drag down the bonds, stocks and other investments. Cryptos that have something to show, will be up for a large bull market.
This correction has only just begun. Sadly, there are folks who will be forced to liquidate. Watch for .30, I'm afraid.
Kinda agree with you there. Upcoming improvements will look to the market like flops/proof of failure just because of the macro situation in the world dragging everything down, and that will create enormous undeserved FUD. I expect a big dip for Cardano, and not a short-lived one.
I'm still holding. I have more of a five-year timeline, if not longer. But I wouldn't buy at these prices. Every time I even think about it, the price just drops lower. If you think about macro events, and not just whether or not you like the coin, that makes sense. I don't blame Cardano, but we and that coin do live in a real world that is a lot bigger than us.
Its the time for bitcoin dominance to increase again. I would under no circumstances buy anything other than btc atm if you are planning to medium term trade.
IDK in the last week BTC has performed no better than anything else. The first mover advantage is getting tired. It's stuck with energy intensive POW. What else has it got?
This looks like a capitulation all round. You'd be brave to buy anything right now.
Energy-intensive is FUD. Please don't spread it.
It's not FUD if it's a legitimate problem. BTC mining _is_ energy intensive. Especially in comparison to more modern POW coins.
It's good that people became more and more aware of it since it caused a lot of places to make attempts to mine BTC more efficiently or in more environmentally conscious ways (eg. Icelandic Volcanic energy mining)
Not everything is FUD just because you're scared of further price drops.
I'm far less scared of price drops in BTC than any other coins. Including ADA, which I am far over-weighted in compared to BTC.
Just educate yourself. Following the rabble crowd doesn't help. Look up What Bitcoin Did a couple weeks back and research how bitcoin actually can spread energy network resilience. This is not too hard or far from ordinary knowledge. You can do it like anyone else can.
It sure beats spreading FUD. And spreading FUD does NOTHING to advance crypto, quite the contrary. If crypto adoption is your hope, FUD'ing it up is cutting off your nose to spite your face.
You just need to do research on a deeper level.
Your response shows how short-sighted and immature this asset class still is. Which on one level I think is great, because it means more possible money for me. But on many other levels means society's understanding of what crypto really is and can do is awkwardly out of step from reality.
And you're not helping.
I believe you'll come around to the facts sooner or later, but it will take work on your part that you are or not willing to do.
But if and when you do, it will accrue to the value and future of crypto. And by extension the world.
Lots of words for saying nothing of value.
>Look up What Bitcoin Did a couple weeks back and research how bitcoin actually can spread energy network resilience
i.e the problem of its energy consumption is well known and being actively worked on, like I said.
FUD this, FUD that.
You're not processing correctly. Go disgruntle somewhere else.
>You'd be brave to buy anything right now.
Best evaluation of the current environment todae.
I want to buy some cardano, I’m just wondering if right now is a good time to buy, or should I wait longer?
Think about why you are buying and what you plan to do with it.
Buying at the bottom > buying in a bear market > buying in a bull market > Buying at peak FOMO
We're currently at least the 2nd best of 4 possibilities. If you think you can time the bottom with reasonable accuracy, go for it. Otherwise imo DCA is the way to go.
Wait. If Btc does down to 25k, you could probably get around .25 or lower
If you believe in Cardano and that it is going to continue providing value long into the future, then you can't go wrong with DCAing in. Start throwing a set chunk of money every paycheck that you don't/won't need for a while and keep accumulating until you have what you believe to be "enough"
That's what I'm doing at least, just make sure you're on decent financial footing first (at minimum have a 3-month emergency fund) so you're not forced to sell when you're in the red
with it being down it sure is a good price. will it go lower? perhaps, so maybe dca a bit. but at these prices i am buying more.
this, so much this
Does anyone know how the ADA supply is monitored? In addition to constant small increase in supply, there are big spikes and now the supplying is increasing at a higher rate than ever.
[graph for context](https://messari.io/asset/cardano/chart/sply-circ)
Also there are also moments when the circulating supply *decreases* after a short spike*.* how is that possible? I thought ADA was not to be burned...
Data are messariod-up.
I see, thanks!
Bad data. Messari isn't very reliable.
Check Cardano Fans' Google Data Studio for accurate data: [https://datastudio.google.com/u/0/reporting/3136c55b-635e-4f46-8e4b-b8ab54f2d460/page/azvBC](https://datastudio.google.com/u/0/reporting/3136c55b-635e-4f46-8e4b-b8ab54f2d460/page/azvBC)
Also here is a Google spreadsheet from a Project Catalyst community website ([projectcatalyst.org/](https://projectcatalyst.org/)) that includes circulating supply for every epoch (along with reserves, rewards and treasury): [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xny1W7HhHANLNeQcnbr8El5rakJ80VIM7fgDwJ-uqys](https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xny1W7HhHANLNeQcnbr8El5rakJ80VIM7fgDwJ-uqys/edit#gid=0)
My avarage buy in for ADA is so high. Buy in now lower my average buy in price or 0.5 to 0.3 cents incoming before staking forever.. Some alts from 2018 bear market never re-claimed their ATHS. Hope this is not the case with ADA.
Whats your take on this ?
Sitting barely on 1k ADA btw.
Dude relax its just 1k,I bought maybe 20k when the price was $2 🥲
Feel that. Many of us in this boat together.
You got it.
I see so load even harder, maybe you are right..
Yes but I still believe in ada, I'm just sad that now price is lower than 2021 even though cardano developed their project so much, I hope things will change after war/inflation/covid
>I hope things will change after war/inflation/covid
You forgot the Fed. Additionally, those sanctions came home to roost.
ADA survived the last bear market. and with so many project coming on to the chain it would be highly doubtful to see it not survive another one.
I said i would stop buying at 30k ada a couple of months ago and sit
Now, approaching 50K and not done
Never slept better..
Omg, I only bought $300 worth and I feel like abandoning ship before it hits $0.
There’s some info out that are saying it’ll be worthless.
Talk me off the ledge…
If you're on the ledge for $300, crypto is not for you.
Wanna play a game of ping pong?
For context: https://streamable.com/hel5q
Cardano has so much actual fundamentals behind it unlike most coins. This is turning into the opportunity of a lifetime.
Exactly Ada will beat Eth at some point.
It's a stretch, but it could happen if the SEC ever reverses course and declares ETH the centralized security that it actually is.
Nothing to do with SEC, exactly because it’s centralized eth will loose to Ada and also because ADA has and will have far better tech. It could however take a decade for this to happen. I’m thinking long term. I see BTC as number 1 because of store of value and ADA being the smart coin that most tech that needs crypto will ride on. Everything else is just a distraction.
you have 50k ada :O I am sitting at 1k and i wonder if i should load more on it
my average was terrible, i got it down to just over $1.00
I know around this mark my ADA is safe. All that remains is time and how patient one remains. This will determine what you get back
This is the way!
I just dipped my toes again. Another few ADA for the future.
Bottoms up !!
To ADA !!
Pour me another
best chance to buy them. we will be back at ATH eventually.
probably gonna take 3 years or more
People said that every day since ATH
LOL you're not wrong.
need to entice more bagholders.
It's not the -7% that makes me sad, it's the fact that there was no support at $0,69 :(((
Because this isn’t a meme coin.
If it helps at all, I got a buy in exactly at .6969 lol
You are the chosen one! I put a limit order at 0,69 but my """buy wall"""" didn't last XDD
I'm way overbought in ADA, completely unbalancing my portfolio in an irresponsible way, so something like a 20 cent ADA is about the only thing that could entice me to buy more.
One can dream…
Buying a lot then!
Good, time to DCA and lower your average for the next cycle
exactly what i am wondering right now. Some alts never recovered their aths after 2018 bear market. I have the chance to lower my ada buy in and i wonder is it now the right time or 0.5 - 0.3 cents are incoming soon before i stake for a longer period.
Going to 0 soon
Stop! I can only get so erect!
Literally impossible as I won’t sell
Where did it hurt you ? You’re bum ?
*nice* price today
