Cardano is positioned at #12 to the south of Stellar Lumens in the market. The trading volume recorded stands at approximately $89.693 million which depicts a massive surge in comparison to the volume attained a week ago. The price dipped at a rate of 1.06% in the course of the past 24-hours; this, in turn, led to $ADA declining all the way down to reach the $0.042474 mark where it currently rests.

A while back, Justin Sun [the CEO of BitTorrent and founder of TRON] was allegedly linked to a scam which resulted in protests that left TRON employees at Beijing shaken. Following this, Justin stated that imposter scams are quite common in the cryptosphere. These nefarious actors powering a Ponzi Scheme target gullible people with little to no understanding of the financial system; such scandals have been reported in Nigeria, South Africa, India, and in developed nations like Australia, USA, and so on.
Following this, Justin’s popularity in China declined rapidly. However, TRON was one of the biggest benefactors of the recent bull-run initiated by Xi Jinping [Ontology, IOST, NEO, etc were other key gainers]. Similar scams have affected other cryptocurrencies as well; people who are struggling to make ends meet might choose to invest in such crafty schemes and end up losing massive amounts to money.
There is a group on Telegram which is using our #Cardano name and promoting the give-away of #ada. This is absolutely false and a scam. Please stay vigilant and report if you come across anything shady at https://t.co/ppzt1MS8HY or https://t.co/3TtvWM1BAu Please RT for awareness!
