Solana (SOL) has gained over 22 percent in the past seven days to trade around $13.51 on Wednesday. However, the SOL price is yet to fully recover from the FTX and Alameda implosion, which saw the digital asset lose over 60 percent in a week. Moreover, Solana was highly incentivized in the FTX ecosystem through token listings and liquidity provision.
Having returned to mid-December resistance, a popular crypto analyst on Twitter has highlighted that SOL will trade around $20 before the end of the first quarter of 2023. Citing a technical standpoint, the analyst believes the digital asset will consolidate at current levels before heading toward $20 before the end of March.
As such, the popular crypto analyst dubbed Inmortal [@inmortalcrypto] is convinced traders who bought Solana below $10 have their portfolio performing well.
The Solana ecosystem is suffering from a lack of development activity and network attacks. Nonetheless, SOL has seen its daily trading volume up significantly in the past few days, standing at about $1.7 billion today. For comparison purposes, BNB, XRP and Dogecoin all have a 24-hour volume of less than $1 billion, according to our latest crypto data.
Notably, a spike in daily traded volume on Solana (SOL) is a high indicator of more upside in the coming weeks. Furthermore, the SOL ecosystem has managed to significantly distance itself from the FTX fiasco.
Closer Look at Solana (SOL) Market Outlook
The Solana ecosystem takes pride in over 11.5 million active accounts and has facilitated over 22 million NFTs minted. Furthermore, Solana’s high throughput and low trading fees make it a perfect fit for NFTs of all shapes and sizes. Some of the top NFT marketplaces on Solana include SolSea, Metaplex, Candy Machine, Gumdrop, and RPC Infrastructure.
Top NFT projects on the Solana network include Cryptokickers, Degen Apes, and Solana Monkey Business.
The Solana ecosystem has been developing a mobile development kit for Web3 developers seeking to tap into the Saga phone. Notably, the Solana Mobile Stack, developed by Solana Mobile and coming first on the Android-compatible Saga phone, aims to make mobile more crypto-friendly.
Nonetheless, the Sol ecosystem is yet to convince the crypto community of its network stability. Moreover, network downs were very rampant last year fueled by bugs.
Meanwhile, the Solana ecosystem takes pride in a global community ready to support its Web3 products like SolanaPay.
