Cardano futures: ADA price pressure to persist amid FTX fallout

Cardano futures: ADA price pressure to persist amid FTX fallout

The recent FTX crisis has caused a whirl in the crypto world with many investors pulling out their assets from the market that’s already dominated by bearish sentiment.

Cardano’s ADA, has been on a bear run in 2022, losing over 89.8% of its gains since the all-time high of $2.9706 on 3 September 2021 to $0.3032 on 21 November 2021.

How do Cardano futures work and where could the cardano futures price be headed? Read on…

What are cardano futures?

Cryptocurrency futures are contracts between two parties that are betting on the future price of a digital asset. When traders purchase a cryptocurrency’s futures contract, they gain exposure without owning the underlying coin, agreeing to pay a certain price for the asset in future. When the futures contract expires, however, the trader has to settle it – in other words, they buy the coin.

The Cardano blockchain was launched in 2017 as a third-generation cryptocurrency platform. It has a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism and was designed to be a more scalable, sustainable and interoperable version of Ethereum. For this reason, the blockchain’s supporters labelled Cardano the “Ethereum killer”.

In September 2021, Cardano gained smart contract capability, allowing for the creation of decentralised apps (dApps), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), games, new cryptocurrencies and more.

ADA is the blockchain’s native cryptocurrency named after the 19th century mathematician Ada Lovelace. The coins are used as a secure exchange of value and to pay for transaction fees

Cardano futures, therefore, are contracts between two parties that have agreed to buy and sell a specific amount of ADA at a specified price. Cardano futures are often known as Cardano perpetual futures or cardano perpetual swaps.

Traders who purchase ADA futures are betting that the price of the cryptocurrency will surge in the future. If that happens, they will profit from the price increase. If the price of Cardano falls, however, they will lose money.

Cardano futures history

Cardano futures started trading on Binance at the end of January 2021. They enjoyed bullish momentum, jumping by more than 4,100% between January and May 2021. The surge came as Cardano continued development of its smart contract capabilities and launched a peer-to-peer testnet to a small group of users.

After a slight dip in July 2021, the ADA futures price climbed to the all-time high of $2.9706 on 3 September 2021. The rally came ahead of the blockchain’s Alonzo hard fork, which introduced smart contract capabilities to Cardano.

Following the bull run, the ADA futures contract dipped by more than 35% by 27 October 2021 and continued on a downward trend.

Cardano futures price fell  to $0.3032 on 21 November 2022 amid negative market sentiment. The recent news on the downfall of the FTX crypto exchange and its native FTT  token added to the bearish price action.

What is driving cardano futures?

The collapse of the FTX crypto exchange affected many major cryptocurrencies, cooling investor sentiment. CoinMarketCap data showed that the total cryptocurrency market capitalisation fell below $800bn on 11 November, when FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the lowest level since early 2021.

“Although aftereffects of the FTX shock will still likely surface at some point and the industry will have to adopt more financially transparent operation and come under stricter regulatory oversight, the worst part may have passed,” Bitbank crypto market analyst Yuya Hasegawa said in his weekly view.

Meanwhile, the Cardano blockchain saw a spike in activity between 9 and 14 November as the number of new addresses on the blockchain surged from 0 to 11,240, according to data on Cardano Blockchain Insights.

The network, however, had seen a surge in the number of transactions on 8 November, which surpassed 391,000 as FTX crashed.

Cardano’s founder, Charles Hoskinson, said in a live YouTube stream on 9 November:

“I think this might be the bottom, one of the last ones to deal with. It’s going to be hard to predict how bad it will be, and it could certainly potentially be very bad. There are not many more firms that were like FTX or Alameda or like, Three Arrows Capital, and so forth. At least in this cycle, I truly do hope that this is the last cycle of this nature.”

In other cardano futures news, Hoskinson told CoinDesk on 18 November that Cardano is looking to launch a new privacy blockchain and digital asset which he stated to be something “the enterprise absolutely wants”.

Cardano futures price prediction for 2023 and beyond

Algorithm-based prediction websites did not provide cardano futures forecasts, so let’s have a look at the latest ADA/USD outlook.

In line with the latest downward price action, algorithm-based forecasting service Wallet Investor gave a bearish ADA price prediction at the time of writing (21 November) noting that ADA was “a bad long-term investment”.

Based on its analysis of past price performance, Wallet Investor predicted that the token could fall to $0.01016  in 2023. The site did not provide an ADA price prediction for 2027.

DigitalCoinPrice, on the other hand, gave a bullish ADA to USD price prediction expecting the token to grow to $0.39 by the end of 2022 and reach $1.30 on average in 2025. By 2027, the site predicted that the price of ADA tokens could reach $1.59. Its long-term token forecast showed the cryptocurrency reaching $4.35 by 2030.

Meanwhile,  Anndy Lian, the chief digital advisor at the Mongolian Productivity Organisation and author of ‘NFT: From Zero to Hero’, told Capital.com that mid-term technical indicators looked bearish (as of 21 November). He added:

“Sellers’ pressure increases in the cardano market. I hope the longer term potential factors like Midnight and USDA can change things for the better.”

News that the group behind Cardano, Input Output Global, is planning to release a new privacy-focused blockchain could have a potential effect on ADA futures, Lian added in his cardano futures price prediction.

In addition, the launch of USDA, the first fully fiat-backed regulated stablecoin on Cardano, will start trading in early 2023, could lead to a hike in the cardano futures price.

“If executed well, I see this will help ADA decentralised finance ecosystem, thus bringing in more liquidity and support into the network,” Lian added.

Final thoughts

Remember, analysts’ and algorithm-based predictions can be wrong. If you’re considering entering the cardano futures market, we recommend you always conduct your own due diligence, looking at the latest news, a wide range of analyst commentary, technical and fundamental analysis. Note that past performance does not guarantee future returns and cryptocurrency markets remain extremely volatile. And never trade money you cannot afford to lose.

Who owns the most Jasmy crypto? High concentration among top 10 holders as price of Japan’s bitcoin plumbs new depths

Who owns the most Jasmy crypto? High concentration among top 10 holders as price of Japan’s bitcoin plumbs new depths

JasmyCoin (JASMY) has been on a bear run for over a year now, falling by more than 99% since peaking for the last time in May 2021. As of 11 November, the coin was valued at $0.0041.

Despite a downfall in JASMY price action, the token has been seeing a surge in active addresses. Let’s have a closer look at who owns the most JASMY crypto.

What is JASMY?

Jasmy is a Japanese internet of things (IoT) company that aims to make data sharing safer, and more decentralised and democratised. It specialises in the safe buying and selling of personal data. It was founded in April 2016 by Kunitake Ando and Kazumasa Sato, two former Sony executives, and Hiroshi Harada, a former employee at KPMG.

Harada, who serves as the platform’s CFO, told Binance in an interview in September 2022:

“Jasmy’s mission is to create a mechanism/platform which allows all users to take ownership of their own data in a secure and private manner. Instead of letting a handful of big tech corporations take control of such sensitive data, Jasmy aims to help enable a world where everyone can feel safe and secure about the use of their own data.”

The platform allows users to:

  • Store and control their data in a safe and secure environment
  • Safely and securely manage and control their devices
  • Provide safe and secure use of their data under clear rules

Jasmy’s Personal Data Locker (PDL) provides users with full ownership over their personal data while its Secure Knowledge Communicator (SKC) is responsible for the achievement of data democracy.

The platform promises to provide its customers with an IoT platform that will help them manage their IoT data securely and efficiently; IoT devices and services that will help customers with the development and maintenance of their IoT platforms and thorough data analysis which will be used for the further improvement of the platform.

Jasmy’s native token, JasmyCoin (JASMY), is used by companies that wish to purchase the users’ data stored on the platform. The token can also be used by users as investment, for governance and metaverse utility. JASMY was built on the Ethereum (ETH) ecosystem and is an ERC-20 token.

JASMY was launched at the end of October 2021 and has been dubbed  as “Japan’s bitcoin”.

JASMY supply explained

According to data provided by CoinMarketCap, JASMY has a maximum and total supply of 50 billion coins. This makes the coin a deflationary asset, similar to bitcoin (BTC), due to the limit on how many coins can be mined.

As of 11 November 2022, the token had a circulating supply surpassing 4.7 billion and a market capitalisation of $19.4m.

JASMY was Japan’s first ever legally approved cryptocurrency as the country had imposed a strict regulation for this market. It was listed on the Japanese crypto exchange BITpoint on 27 October 2021.

The cryptocurrency was met with a lot of enthusiasm upon its launch, skyrocketing by more than 230% in four days from $1.3024 on 12 February 2021 to $4.2929 – an all-time high following its listing on the crypto exchange Gate.io.

After the fast surge, the token lost over 58% of its value falling to $1.7851 by 22 February 2021, but managed to regain 67% of its value soon after, reaching $2.9628 on 2 March 2021.

JASMY grew past the $2 barrier once again on 9 March 2021 as the platform announced it had joined GitHub, thus providing a space where its users could discuss upcoming projects, news and bugs.

By 5 May 2021, however, the coin lost around 50% of its value, falling to $1.0965 before seeing a mini-surge on the following day and rising to $2.1586. The bullish price action did not last long. The coin entered a bear run, falling by 95% in the following weeks and reaching $0.05456 on 20 June 2021.

Since then, the coin was unable to reach previous highs, falling by an additional 92.4% to $0.004122 as of 11 November 2022.

Who owns the most JASMY crypto?

In the past two months, JASMY lost over 57% of its value, falling from $0.009717 on 10 September 2022 to $0.004122 on 11 November 2022. Despite the continued bear trend, token concertation among the top 10 JASMY holders remained high.

Data published on Sanbase showed that the number of active JASMY token addresses spiked to 673 on 30 October from 224 the day before. The number of active JASMY holders spiked once again on 9 November to 719 from a low of 273 on 7 November 2022.

So, who has the most JASMY tokens? Data provided by etherscan.io showed that there are 36,169 JASMY holders in total. The 10 biggest JASMY holders, as of 11 November, collectively owned 51.33% of the total token supply in circulation, meanwhile the top 100 owned 85.44%.

The website noted that the top account holding the most JASMY tokens was the world’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange Binance (BNB). Binance owned 23.43% of the total supply, which amounted to 11.7 billion JASMY coins worth around $48,500, as of 11 November. It’s likely that the exchange is holding the tokens on behalf of its users.

The second on etherscan’s top holders of JASMY list was crypto exchange Mexc.com. It owned 5.86% of the total supply, amounting to 2.9 billion tokens. Mexc.com could own JASMY tokens on behalf of its users.

The third biggest JASMY account was Jasmy Deployer which held 4.8% of the tokens’ total supply amounting  to 2.4 billion coins. The fourth and fifth biggest JASMY holders were two anonymous wallets holding 4.12% (1.34 billion coins) and 2.7% (1.29 billion coins) of the tokens’ total supply respectively.

Analyst views on Jasmy’s tokenomics

Knowing who owns the most JASMY tokens can be of use to many retail investors and traders, Anndy Lian, chief digital advisor at the Mongolian Productivity Organisation and author of ‘NFT: From Zero to Hero’, told Capital.com:

“The concentration of tokens on exchanges on leading exchanges such as Binance is a confidence booster for many retail investors.

“JASMY has gained interest from some of the biggest names in Japan’s technology industry. Pansonic and VAIO have also partnered with JASMY. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the largest call centre in Japan, Transcosmos, used JASMY to secure its data. The big names using JASMY’s technology are a really attractive selling point for retail investors.”

Lian added that for JASMY to truly grow, the firm would need to showcase its technology and focus on revenue.

“After all, they are the first legally compliant Japanese crypto coin listed on the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange. Japanese law strictly governs cryptocurrency transactions subject to Financial Services Agency inspections. Being accountable by Japanese law, they need to walk away from fluff and hype and concentrate on real business first.”

Please note that analysts’ predictions and opinions can be wrong. The information about the biggest cryptocurrency whales and ownership concentration shouldn’t be used as a substitute for your own research. Always conduct your own due diligence before trading. And never invest or trade money you cannot afford to lose.

JASMY/USD forecast: Building JasmyCoin trading volumes may be setting stage for price rebound

JASMY/USD forecast: Building JasmyCoin trading volumes may be setting stage for price rebound

Jasmycoin (JASMY) has been spiralling downwards for over a year, losing more than 99% of its value since its $1.8 peak at the end of May 2021. At the time of writing on 4 November 2022, the coin traded at $0.005728.

However, its trading volumes have been on a rise, up at $119m on 4 November 2022, surpassing its 31 July 2021 high of $97m.

With a number of projects on the way, can the cryptocurrency pick up its pace?

Let’s take a deep dive into the jasmycoin universe, including the latest JASMY/USD forecast round-up.

What is Jasmy/USD?

Jasmy is a Tokyo-based IoT company that specialises in data management, and the safe purchasing and selling of data. It was established in April 2016 and dubbed “Japan’s bitcoin”.

The company is headed by former Sony (SNE) executives Kunitake Ando and Kazumasa Sato, and Hiroshi Harada, a former employee at KPMG AZSA LLP.

The Jasmy platform combines blockchain and Internet of things (IoT) technologies “to provide an infrastructure that allows anyone to use data safely and securely”.

In an interview with Binance, Jasmy’s CFO, Hiroshi Harada noted that the blockchain’s main purpose is to “create a mechanism/platform which allows all users to take ownership of their own data in a secure and private manner.

“Instead of letting a handful of big tech corporations take control of such sensitive data, Jasmy aims to help enable a world where everyone can feel safe and secure about the use of their own data.”

The platform allows for the safe storage of personal information through its Personal Data Locker (PDL) which provides users with full ownership over their data. In addition to that, Jasmy also has a Secure Knowledge Communicator (SKC), its core service responsible for the achievement of data democratisation.

Jasmy's ecosystem explained

Merchants pay users who store their data on Jasmy for access using the platform’s native cryptocurrency, JasmyCoin (JASMY), which can be used by users for investment purposes, governance and metaverse utility. JASMY is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum (ETH) ecosystem.

In the future, Jasmy also aims to provide IoT solutions to manufacturers interested in the smart home market and local governments in pursuit of a smart city.

The maximum number of JASMY coins is capped at 50 billion, with over 4.7 billion tokens in circulation, based on data provided by CoinMarketCap, as of 2 November. According to the platform, the token has a market capitalisation surpassing $24m.

A dip in the price trend

Historical JASMY/USD chartJasmycoin started its journey well, surging by around 230% in just four days, up from $1.3024 on 12 February 2021 to its all-time high of $4.2929 on 16 February 2021 as the coin was listed on Gate.io.

In the next four days, however, JASMY dropped more than 58% to $1.7. It surged in the following weeks, jumping by 67% to $2.9628 by 2 March 2021, ahead of its listing on the Jubi exchange.

After falling by around 39% to $1.8 on 7 March 2021, JASMY managed to surge past the $2 barrier as the project joined GitHub, a platform where users could discuss it.

By 24 April 2021, JASMY had lost over 50% of its value, falling to $0.9866, a then all-time low. The token continued to move sideways before skyrocketing to $2.1586 on 6 May 2021 following a staking campaign organised by Gate.io, which ran for 14 days between late April 2021 and early May 2021.

Since the mini-hike at the start of May 2021, JASMY has been struggling to pick up pace, embarking on a bear dip and losing over 97% of its value, down to $0.05456 by 20 June 2021.

In the final quarter of 2021, JASMY saw a brief spike, in line with overall positive market sentiment and its listing on the crypto exchange Coinbase, as its price surged 409.7% to $0.2781 on 3 November 2021.

The positive trend diminished as the token entered the new year, with its value falling by 95% by the start of March 2022. Since then, JASMY has been trading in bear territory at $0.005728, as of 4 November 2022.

Why the dip?

A few analysts brought up a number of reasons as to why JASMY had crashed in June 2021.

Martin Škorjanc, the CEO of NiceHash, told Capital.com that the bearish trend was likely driven by unfriendly crypto news in Japan and the fact that Jasmy Inc. decided to release too many tokens at the same time with no solid mechanism for managing their circulation.

The token’s unfamiliarity among investors was also a reason for its price to significantly drop, Dr Pooja Lekhi, Professor of Global Financial Institutions, Risk Management Approach and Financial Management at University Canada West said.

“Secondly, some rivals have advantages over Jasmy. IOTA crypto was an early mover in this space with many established partnerships. Therefore, it took more time for Jasmy to prove its worth.”

News driving the Jasmy/USD rate

On 31 October 2022, JasmyCoin was listed on the Stealth crypto exchange making it eligible to trade with more than 600 other assets. This saw the token’s trading volume reach an all-time high of $99.4m on the day.

On 5 September 2022, Jasmy announced that the token became the official sponsor of the Japanese professional football club, Sagan Tosu. In addition to becoming a sponsor, Jasmy also launched the Sagan Tosu Fan Token, a new cryptocurrency that uses non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and is based on the Jasmy blockchain, thus seeing the company enter an entirely new market.

In an interview with Binance recorded in early September 2022, the blockchain’s CFO, Harada, noted that Jasmy was exploring the idea of launching its NFTs onto other broader marketplaces such as Binance NFT, OpenSea and Magic Eden in the future, thus further expanding their niche.

Harada also mentioned a number of projects that Jasmy is working on in the third quarter of 2022, which have the potential to influence the future of the JASMY/USD forecast including:

  • The development of the DD coin, the Japanese Yen-backed stablecoin that will be incorporated into the ecosystem
  • The development of the Platinum Data Happiness Discovery Project, that will award users who participate in the project JASMY tokens and help them identify which data is tied to their happiness through the use of artificial intelligence

JASMY/USD forecast 2023 and beyond

At the time of writing, the algorithm-based forecasting service Wallet Investor gave a mixed jasmycoin to the US dollar forecast. The site noted that JASMY was “a bad long-term investment”, expecting the token to fall to $0.000350 in 2023 but surge to $0.009099 in 2027.

DigitalCoinPrice on the other hand gave a more positive JASMY/USD forecast. Based on its analysis of past price performance, the website predicted that the JASMY/USD forecast for 2022 could reach $0.00706 by the end of the year and surge to an average of $0.00949 in 2023.

Its JASMY/USD forecast for 2025 showed the cryptocurrency reaching $0.0149 on average and $0.0179 in 2027. The platform’s long-term JASMY/USD forecast for 2030 expected the cryptocurrency to surge to $0.0316 on average.

The founder of SmartBlocks and host of Cryptonized, Mark Fidelman, told Capital.com that in the long run the token has potential to surge due to it being known as “the Japanese bitcoin”.

“I wouldn’t be a buyer at this point, but a token to watch,” Fidelman added.

Anndy Lian, chief digital advisor at the Mongolian Productivity Organisation and author of NFT: From Zero to Hero, also brought up the fact that because JASMY is known as the local bitcoin, it is supported by many.

He noted that in order for JASMY to grow, the company must start to develop it “outside of Japan and grow their footprint in key market”, noting:

“Additionally, I do hope to also see their enterprise services get more adoption instead of moving into offering fan token. They should focus on real utilisation according to their mission and this is the only way the project will grow in value.”

When considering JASMY/USD predictions, it’s important to keep in mind that cryptocurrency markets remain extremely volatile, making it difficult to accurately predict what a coin or token’s price will be in a few hours, and even harder to give long-term estimates. As such, analysts and algorithm-based forecasters can and do get their predictions wrong.

We recommend that you always conduct your own due diligence on the asset before trading, looking at the latest news, a wide range of analyst commentary, and technical and fundamental analysis. Keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. And never invest money that you cannot afford to lose.
