The price of ADA in 2023 and the December bull run
The 2023 of ADA, the native crypto of Cardano, has seen a trend very similar to other major cryptos, although with several months of bear market while the rest was already in a bullish trend.
Well, at the time of writing ADA is worth $0.60, but in 2023 it started at a price of $0.25, recording a yearly pump of +139%.
However, this does not take away the fact that while Bitcoin and Ethereum started to regain ground starting from October 2023, ADA instead began to experience the bull run of this moment only at the beginning of December.
In the first week of this month, ADA went from a price of $0.37 to $0.57, reaching its annual high on December 14th at $0.66.
Moreover, just at the beginning of this month, Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, took the lead, especially regarding the issue that the US SEC would have classified ADA as an unregistered security.
