Solana gains while Ethereum loses, a stark comparison

Solana has just seen one of the biggest inflows to the network. These are worth $24 million. While the inflows are a part of the development, this one comes as a major announcement because Ethereum, on the other hand, has seen outflows from the network. It happened in just a week, further cementing the community’s claim that Solana was and is the Ethereum killer.

A single word or sentence answer for this happening is hard to pinpoint. It can only be assumed that the community is beginning to experience a major shift in the hierarchy of altcoins. The result is that Solana has gained 120% in its value when Ethereum is lagging behind with interest from investors.

Solana has also gone on to break the resistance of $19. It rose from $19 to $24 in a single week to signal a bullish pattern. The token was last seen making a U-turn, being traded at $22.04, a slip of 1.49% in the last 24 hours. How it reacts in the next 48 hours will decide if SOL actually breaks the spirits of ETH.

Solana forecast estimates that the token may come back to less than the $20 mark by the end of this year. However, a more optimistic approach demonstrates that the token is likely to dance around $48 before beginning a new year.

Ethereum is way above the $1.5k mark. Simply put, there is a fight, but the actual showdown will take some time to form.

More reasons why the Solana and Ethereum faceoff is a distant portrayal as of now are because of metrics like market cap, daily active addresses, and TVL. These have been explained below:




Total Value Locked

20,206 billion

333,7 million

Daily active addresses



Market Cap

202,74 billion

9,57 billion

….comparison goes steeper when one considers decentralized exchanges, lending protocols, and derivatives.

To cut a long story short, Solana lags behind Ethereum in all those metrics. The recent $24 million inflow is impressive and does showcase a shift. It cannot be concluded that Solana will surpass Ethereum any time soon. Ethereum continues to ride on the first-mover’s advantage. Solana is a young network with a lot to build. Its image of being an Ethereum killer is intact, but a timeline will be underlined only after it sustains the current trading value.

Per the recent data, the trajectory is only going downward and does not show a positive symptom of high-value resistance. Moving forward, Solana is likely to stick to its core strengths of scalability, economic transactions, and speed, with all of them not being present in Ethereum. The 200-day EMA also backs Solana’s recent climb along with the wave of purchasing patterns.

The community has, meanwhile, started comparing the token to Bitcoin. According to the argument, Solana is quickly becoming the preferred option because of the innovation it brings and the applications that developers are deploying on the network.
