The Cardano blockchain’s native coin, ADA, is gaining traction in the market. In the previous 24 hours, the value of ADA has risen 4.21 percent to $1.22, a level last seen in early February 2022.
According to Santiment, a crypto market activity analytics platform, the new spike has been followed by differences in the number of ADA held by various tiers of addresses.
Significant outflows have been reported from high/whale tier addresses (wallets that hold more than $100k in tokens).
The category of holders owned up to 94 percent of all ADA in circulation at its height in 2021; according to Santiment’s data, they now account for 83.1 percent of the supply.
The information also reveals where the shortage of supply may have gone. Santiment informs that low-mid (0 to 100 tokens) and high-mid (10 to 100 tokens) token holdings have increased significantly (100 to 100k tokens).
The first now owns 0.128 percent of the circulating quantity of PoS tokens, whereas the latter owns an ATH of 16.8 percent.
Basically, this dynamic speaks to a more long-term dispersion and decentralization of the largest proof-of-stake blockchain’s native coin.
The data is merely the latest contribution to Cardano whale milestones. Earlier, it was reported that the number of whale wallets increased by around 1.7 percent in March.
Likewise, IntoTheBlock discovered that the whaling boom was due to a large surge in institutional demand.
According to IntoTheBlock, the quantity of on-chain transactions worth more than $100k has risen 50 times a year to date.
This type of transaction moved 99 percent of the total on-chain volume reported on the day the data was released.
Several changes in the Cardano ecosystem can be identified as having a significant impact on adoption. Cardano’s DeFi sector is exploding, with many projects launching since January, including Milkomeda, a cross-bridge protocol for connecting Cardano and Ethereum.
Likewise, Pavia has announced that Cardano’s metaverse ecosystem has reached a significant milestone, with 22,000 distinct landowners.
Additionally, Clay Nation, a Cardano-based NFT initiative, has announced a collaboration with Snoop Dogg, an American hip-hop artist.
