Crypto influencer “Coin Bureau” talked about Cardano in one of his analysis released on his YouTube channel. He spoke on why he is so bullish on $ADA and gave his year-end price target
According to coin Bureau, although Cardano’s upside potential is limited due to its large market cap, the coin has more room to grow than Ethereum. He notes that ADA has maintained its bullish momentum against all odds.
