Solana prediction as the price slips again

  • Solana is down 3% in the past week amid bearish pressure 

  • An influential analyst is predicting $375-$739 for Solana

  • SOL has retested key support with key indicators flashing red lights

Solana SOL/USD has lost 3.24% in the past week to trade slightly above $32. The second-largest proof-of-stake network after Ethereum, currently commands a market cap of $11 billion.

According to its website, Solana is a decentralized computing platform. The layer-one network is powered by SOL, a token used for paying transaction fees and utility. Despite the current value, which is nothing compared to its ATH of $260, there are positive predictions.

A popular anonymous analyst is predicting a bull run for Solana. The strategist, who doubles as a host for InvestAnswers, is basing his prediction on market dominance. He said that Solana could command 10-20% market dominance in a hypothetical situation.

The Youtuber, who currently has more than 400,000 subscribers, maintains that Solana could reach $375. In the same breath, he thinks Ethereum could reach as much as 25% market dominance and $15,450. In the best-case scenario, the optimist believes that Solana could trade at $739, given a market dominance of 20%.

While it may sound too good to be true, Solana remains a formidable layer-1 that rivals Ethereum. The network is built on a promise of high scalability. Recently, Solana integrated its first layer-2 scaling solution, Nitro. The layer integrates Cosmos and IBC platforms.

Aside from the fundamentals and rosy predictions, Solana is a bearish market. It has retested key support, and its TVL is also in the red. At the time of writing, Solana TVL was down 1.22% in the past day at $1.29 billion, according to data from DeFi Llama.

Concluding thoughts

Despite Solana being under bearish pressure, it remains a key token to watch in the crypto space. How soon the token can turn around its fortunes is a matter of debate. At the moment, the current price is not a good entry point, and patience should be exercised until a trend reversal is seen.
