A Strong Positive Sentiment
Data analytics platform Santiment wrote on Twitter that a positive sentiment builds upon the current Cardano price. The Cardano (ADA) Weighted Social Sentiment on the Cardano blockchain has risen significantly following the recent price increase. It suggests that the price will continue to grow.
Despite being way below its $3.10 ATH, its traders believe that the ADA price could still reach its next resistance level of around $1.20.

More Cardano Projects are Launching
In September 2021, the Cardano network underwent a significant upgrade, allowing it to scale faster. The upgrade has resulted in several network milestones being reached. Notably, several projects are currently in the works on the platform, such as non-fungible token collections, new wallets, and DeFi lending.
