On Monday (August 23), to as the price of Cardano’s $ADA token broke above the $2.95 level to set a new all-time high, crypto analyst Tai Zen, who believes that $ADA can get as high as $20, said that the “magic” number is $5.

According to data by TradingView, on crypto exchange Kraken, the $ADA price broke the $2.95 level for the first time around 16:24 UTC today (August 23); and just one minute later, it hit $2.9574, which is currently today’s intraday high (as well as being the new all-time high).

Currently (as of 21:30 UTC on August 23), ADA-USD is trading at $2.9229, up 11.83% in the past 24-hour period. As for the past month-period, ADA-USD is up an even more impressive 150%.

Although it seems that it won’t be long before the $ADA price hits $3, crypto analyst Tai Zen says that he expects to see fireworks once the price hits $5 since this is the point where he expects that we will start to see serious retail FOMO:

He went on to say that he thinks the technologically advanced Cardano platform will eventually overtake Ethereum (in both the size of ecosystem as well as market cap) thanks to its highly passionate and fast-growing community.

It is also worth pointing out what the CEO of Cryptocurrency Market, LLC said about Ethereum and Cardano back on August 21:

Dan Gambardello, Founder of Crypto Capital Venture, reminded everyone that BITPoint, which is the first crypto exchange in Japan that will be offering $ADA to the residents of that country, will be listing $ADA on August 25.

As for David Grider, formerly the Director of Digital Asset Strategy at independent research boutique Fundstrat Global Advisors, who is currently the Head of Research at Grayscale Investments, he says that since the number of monthly active addresses of Ethereum and Cardano are quite comparable, if we take this metric to represent the number of users on the two networks, then it could be argued that $ADA “looks equally valued” as $ETH.

And finally, as $ADA keeps surging and setting new all-time highs, it is perhaps not surprising to see the number of mentions of $ADA and Cardano on social media platforms also surging to the point that it might not be long before Cardano is being mentioned more often than Bitcoin, as Santiment observed a short time ago.

Cardano’s increasing social activity was also noticed by LunarCRUSH:
