It might be difficult to comprehend the 4.5 years worth data at a glance, with no real understanding of what really happened. Thus below I have broken it down into two smaller parts to make it more insightful.

April 2018 – August 2020

Cardano was launched in April 2018 @ $0.24 level. After a quick sharp upward movement it started falling consistently to reach $0.03 mark by the end of 2018. Although in 2019 it recovered slightly but nothing major happened until August 2020.

During this whole period that remained majorly bearish while involving few intermittent recoveries, let’s see how Athena performed.

September 2020 – August 2022

During the 1st half of this period, Cardano witnessed a massive Bull run where it rose from $0.07 mark to reach $3.1 levels. Post this phase the Bearish market set-in resulting into a steep decline bringing the value down to $0.5 levels which continues even till date.

Let’s visualize the performance of Athena on Cardano during this 2 year period involving 1 major bull run and 1 bear run.
