Wondering why ADA never performs?

There are a variety of reasons why the value of ADA on the Cardano blockchain will never reach $10 a piece. 

Primarily, Cardano is a third-generation blockchain platform that is still in development, which means that it has yet to be proven as a viable platform for large-scale applications. 

In addition, the Cardano team has intentionally designed the platform to be more resistant to inflation than other blockchain platforms, which means that the price of ADA is less likely to increase dramatically in the future. There is also a large supply of ADA tokens in circulation, which would need to be greatly reduced for the token to reach even $10 a piece.

Finally, the Cardano team has also been conservative in its approach to marketing and development, which means that it is not currently generating the same level of buzz or excitement as other, more established blockchain projects. They have also previously been quoted suggesting "the Cardano Foundation and team at IOHK has indicated that they do not want the price of ADA to reach $10, as they believe it would be detrimental to the long-term health of the Cardano network."
