Solana Trades Up 15.7%, But Network Issues Raise Concerns
16 décembre 2021
Solana (SOL) traded 15.7% up and lead gains earlier as the crypto market started to see the green zone, recovering from the total cap value dropping to $2,1 trillion, now at $2,2 trillion, a 5% increase in 24 hours.
As several altcoins from the top 100 savor the upswing, it’s a polarized day for Solana’s popularity as the network saw major congestion issues that might put down price expectations for 2022.
A few days ago SOL saw a two-month low of around $150, but losses are in reverse in the past 24 hours. The digital coin went up as much as $188, a 15.7% daily growth. Solana’s market cap value grew from $51.17 billion to $56.76 billion during the period (adding $5.59 billion).
In terms of competition for the top 5 cryptocurrencies by market cap, Solana took the win while Ethereum surged around 4%. Cardano climbed 3% and Avalanche, on the other hand, is also seeing growth surging 15% in 24 hours after announcing native support for USD Coin (USDC), swinging up above the $100 mark.
