At 21:00 UTC on Tuesday (May 4), staking support for Cardano went live on crypto exchange Kraken. According to the exchange, which listed $ADA for trading in September 2018, it is possible to “receive initial annual staking rewards between 4-6%.”

Yesterday, Dutch crypto analyst and trader Michaël van de Poppe said that he could see Cardano’s $ADA token reaching $5.

On Monday (May 3), “Coin Bureau” released a video on its YouTube channel that compared Ethereum and Cardano. The host told the channel’s 833K subscribers:

From a percentage standpoint, ADA has seen much larger gains than ETH during this bull market so far. It’s up almost 40X since last spring…

ADA has been consolidating since it hit $1.50 in mid-April this year and if the momentum of the market continues along with the drop in BTC dominance, ADA will be getting its second wind sometime soon…

If everything goes smoothly with the rollout of Cardano smart contracts in the summer, I could see ADA spiking to $3 and possibly higher if Cardano’s other partnerships work out.
