The Cardano blockchain’s native token ADA slumped to $0.26 on Monday erasing nearly 15% of its price since last week. ADA remained on a slippery slope ever since it lost its support line of $0.44 in October 2022. The token’s value is experiencing a considerable drop and is unable to hold on to its resistance levels of $0.28 this week. If the crypto fails to rise above $0.28 and remains on the back foot, its next leg down could be $0.24.
