Discussions around the Tech space, Digital assets or currencies, and investments are interesting, popular topics on social media platforms as many traders and investors made unimaginable profits from buying digital assets like Solana. Many have seen their SOL investment go up as much as 9000% without even compounding their positions or applying any form of leverage.
However, the recent price decline across the cryptocurrency market brings concerns to SOL holders and some trader friends have asked me for my opinion on the current state of the market and what the future holds for the SOL token from this year into next year.
Should we expect a swift recovery from the current price plunge or a prolonged crypto winter? This has been a major concern for crypto investors and so in this post, I’ll dive into a deep analysis of the Solana crypto ecosystem highlighting the likely Solana price predictions and price zones. Before going into full details about Solana, let’s start with a history of the coin.
Solana was founded by Anatoly Yakovenko in 2017. According to Forbes, the price of Solana skyrocketed by 15,300% and rose to a value of $248.01 per token this year. This Pump made the token the center of attraction to a lot of investors and they invested their money in it.
Despite the number of Cryptocurrency in the Cryptocurrency market, new digital assets are being created and they enter the market to fill the void that other tokens hasn’t filled. Solana belongs to a third-generation decentralized system that uses proof of history and proof of stake to execute about 50000 transactions per second.
According to research, the market capitalization of Solana is around $15,008,918,047.04 while the fully diluted market capitalization is around $22,790,967,079.35. This shows that there is enough Solana token in circulation.
For the project to be funded appropriately, the founders divided it into five funding rounds. 4 of the rounds were made available to private investors. This strategy brought in about $20 million. Some of the investors include Multicoin capital, Rockaway Ventures, NEO global capital, etc, who were given Solana in exchange for their investments. In 2020, the founders made another auction sale for the 5th round in the initial division which brought in about $4 million. Solana token was distributed as follows: 15.86% to Seed Round investors, 2.63 to Founding Sale investors, 5.07% to Validator Sale investors, 1.84% to Strategic Sale investors, 1.6% to Public Auction Sale investors, and 12.5% to team members, 12.5% to the Solana Foundation, and 38% to the Community reserve fund.
Solana’s high transaction speed and scaling solution attracted institutional investors to the network, consequently leading to a parabolic surge of about 9000% starting from 10 August ’20.
The recent bearish volatility of digital currencies puts the fear of being wrong in the mind of SOL traders. Hopefully, your mind will be at rest after this analysis, as I give you a long-term projection of the SOLUSDT. The annotated monthly chart of the SOLUSDT reveals a breakdown of the bullish hidden inside-bar support ($180.93) on December ’21 after an eleven-month price hike of about +25000%. The current correction wave brings the SOL price into the previous Inside/Outside bar chart pattern price zone ($44.20 and $22.10) which could serve as a springboard for a price hike. With the present speculation, it’s predicted that Solana will be worth $150 at the end of 2022 with its lowest price at $20.42.
After going through a crypto winter in the current year, the SOL price is expected to recover from its oversold state in 2023, exiting the RSI level-25 on the monthly time frame, and trades within the $25.06 (1.272 Fib-level) and $177.84 (1.618 Fib-level) price range.
Solana’s ecosystem would have gone through multiple iterations and fully tested for robustness in five years. By then the SOL price is predicted to hover between the $717.65 (1.618 Fib-level) and $3348.39 (2.0 Fib-level).
The SOL coin continued to set consecutive highs and lows with mild correction phases from its inception. However, we have identified a couple of competitors of the SOL project and Ethereum ETH happens to be a pacesetter. Although both tokens are used for digital transactions, there are some major differences between them, which are as follows:
Ethereum has higher gas fees compared to Solana. However, that could change if the developers successfully complete the migration to ETH 2.0.
Recent downtimes experienced by Solana also bring high criticism towards the crypto asset.
As stated in their whitepaper, Solana claimed to have a throughput of up to 710K transactions per second, following an analysis of the protocol on a 1gbps network, compared to a throughput of about 15 transactions per second for Ethereum.
