Solana community’s bullish outlook
From the prediction, the Solana community is expressing bullishness, considering that the token slumped to below $10 in the wake of the FTX crypto exchange collapse. Notably, Solana had a strong relationship with FTX, and the collapse cast uncertainty on the blockchain’s sustainability.
Although SOL has rallied in tandem with the general market, the asset needs strong fundamentals. In this case, contrary to the previous speculation, the network appears resilient.
This is after Solana’s founders Anatoly Yakovenko and Raj Gokal published a report on the ecosystem’s future that expressed optimism about at a time developers on the blockchain have increased 83% in a single year to over 20,000. The activity has enabled Solana to rank among projects with the highest development activities.
At the same time, the network is recording increased adoption activity, with a partnership with Brave Browser emerging as the latest. Under the partnership, Solana dApp is now supported by the browser, allowing users to connect to top Solana applications like Magic Eden and conduct decentralized finance (DeFi)-related transactions.
Solana price analysis
Solana is facing bearish pressure that threatens to invalidate the asset’s recent gains. The token is changing hands at $22.90 with daily losses of over 3%.
Elsewhere, the one-day technical analysis on TradingView is offering mixed signals. A summary of the gauges is for the neutral sentiment at 9, while moving averages are for ‘sell’ at 9. On the other hand, oscillators are also neutral at 8.
