With the rising tide of optimism in the cryptocurrency market, it is not surprising that ambitious predictions are emerging. One of the most talked about currently is the possibility of ADA, Cardano’s native currency, breaking the US$20 price level and even reaching the US$24 mark. But will this value, which is far from the current reality, be indeed a realistic goal?
Before diving into this debate, it is worth remembering that, recently, ADA already surprised many by slightly surpassing the US$3 mark, consolidating a market value of more than US$91 billion. Thus, the crypto world is watching the potential growth of this currency with curiosity and speculation.
For ADA to reach the projected value of US$24, its market capitalization must exceed US$870 billion. That’s almost ten times its market value at the height of the last bull cycle. If we consider the current scenario, in which Cardano has a market value of approximately US$10 billion, this would require exponential growth, something that, for many, may seem like a colossal challenge.

However, some points need to be considered. The cryptocurrency market, despite its volatility, has already shown that certain predictions, however bold they may seem, can come true. Projections that were seen as unlikely have become real, redefining the way we see and understand the crypto space.
Cardano, as a platform, has in its favor its focus on research, security and sustainability, characteristics that could propel it to a level of mass adoption. If this trend is confirmed, ADA will certainly have a more paved path on its upward trajectory.
However, it is important to keep in mind that sustainable growth and stability are just as crucial as appreciation potential. The path for Cardano to reach the $24 mark is not linear, and the coin will face its own challenges and competition along the way.
At the time of publication, the price of ADA was quoted at US$0.292845, up 2.5% in the last 24 hours.
