The Cardano (ADA) prices are steady, under pressure, and moving horizontally at spot rates. There are hints of weakness. However, whether bears will press lower in the days ahead below the $0.30 level is yet to be seen.
For now, the path of least resistance, at least in the top-down preview, is northwards. This preview is anchored by the July 13 bull bar, which momentarily pushed ADA to May 2023’s trade range above $0.35.
The failure of ADA buyers to push through is negative. Still, from a positive lens, bears have failed to completely reverse the losses of July 13. Moreover, prices are trending above $0.30. This is bullish from an effort-versus-result perspective.
Building: Mithril in Mainnet Beta, Intersect For Constructive Development
Amid this development is the continuous development of Cardano. The network is at the Basho stage, focusing on scalability and performance. Last week, IOG, the lead developer, released the Mithril on the mainnet in beta.
Mithril is officially live on the #Cardano mainnet! 🚀@IOHK_Charles @Cardano @Cardano_CF @IOG_Eng @conraddit @canadastakes1 @euskalstakepool @SPO_DINO @VFS_StakePool @sakepool_ada @sakakibara1JPN @cardano_aden @hix_coffeepool @shiodome47 @rx78pool @slowhand4040 pic.twitter.com/Bn0AThnYL2

Mithril is a stake-based signature protocol that aims to improve node syncing times on the mainnet. This development is significant as it can enhance the network’s efficiency and support a broader range of applications.
Mithril is also expected to offer improved security and facilitate decentralized decision-making. With this update, the team anticipates the production of certificates during the next Cardano epoch.
Cardano has also released node v.8.1.2, updating the Plutus interpreter while introducing Intersect ahead of Voltaire. Intersect will drive constructive discussions and steer Cardano’s future development.
Cardano (ADA) Price Analysis
ADA prices remain in range, confined in a tight zone as liquidity dries. Overall, the coin is down 18% from July 2023 highs.
Even so, the rejection of lower lows and bulls maintaining $0.30 is bullish. From an effort-versus-result perspective, buyers have a chance provided bears fail to peel back the gains of July 13.
In this regard, the immediate reaction points to monitor are $0.30 and $0.32. A conclusive, high volume close above 40.32 with expanding volumes may see ADA retest $0.35 and July 2023 highs.
Conversely, any drop below $0.30 may trigger a sell-off to $0.28 or lower in the sessions ahead.
