Solana (SOL) is on hyperdrive as the network quickly gains momentum in terms of liquidity which are seen at more than 300% as of press time. Following a sweeping price decline, Solana has turned the tide with metrics with flying colors.
Here’s a quick glance at SOL performance of late:
- SOL metrics and trustworthiness score looking positive
- Solana’s TVL seen to jump higher
- Solana rolls out Saga Pass Cards
There is sizeable growth seen both in terms of NFT with the rollout of the Saga Pass Cards and market cap.
Solana was seen to nosedive the past couple of weeks, but it’s now back on the top 10 cryptocurrencies list that is stacked at the green lane.
SOL Price Gaining Traction
According to price monitoring by Coingecko, SOL price is currently trading at $24.28, up 3.0% in the last seven days.
Evidently, following the FTX crash, short-term traders and the bulls were fixated on SOL which unlocked roughly 100 million coins from different contacts which could have punched a hole in the market, driving the price of SOL to null or $0.
But, that didn’t happen as SOL holders chose to hold out their coins waiting for better days and not panic and sell their SOL holdings.
True enough, the market gained traction and recovered with most assets moving north, including SOL which made the investors extremely happy with the gains.

With this hypergrowth happening with Solana, the investors decided to accumulate longs which triggered SOL’s open interest to accelerate higher. As a matter of fact, around $460 million worth of orders is currently open at crypto derivative exchanges. Could this be bad news for SOL?
Now, the open interest really isn’t the culprit here as it can’t really pull SOL price down but it’s the increased number of longs that could trigger a squeeze brought about by SOL holders rapidly selling their holdings to counterpunch future risks.
On the brighter side, nothing is set in stone and SOL holders and investors need not panic right now as SOL has not gained much momentum yet to trigger millions in the liquidation of assets.
SOL Currently In No. 2 Spot On Top Chains List
SOL is performing so well that it managed to jump to the second spot on the top chains list in terms of NFT trade volume seen in the past month. SOL’s NFT trade volume is seen to spike and gain momentum in the past couple of weeks.
