- Cardano begins the transition to the Shelly mainnet as the price skyrockets above $0.10.

ADA/USD price not only broke above the coveted $0.1 but also broke a two-year high as it closed in on $0.15. A new yearly high has been formed at $0.1410 (also the Fibo swing high). At the time of writing, a minor retreat has seen the price adjust to $0.1211 (market value). The dominant momentum at the moment is bearish as investors rush to take profit.
The downward momentum is highlighted by the Relative Strength Index (RSI) currently pointing south. If the RSI manages to hold above the midline, a consolidation could come into play and allow the bulls to stage another attack on $0.14 and $0.15.
