Assessing the state of SOL after Solana’s latest ‘real solutions’ release
🚀 Tip Me 🥰
Solana Labs has released its latest upgrade on the network. The network upgrade has been well received by many in the community. Interestingly, despite the ongoing market correction, Solana [SOL] has managed to stay afloat as far as general price movement is concerned.
However, several questions have made their way into the Solana DeFi camp lately, especially considering its latest dips.
Better Call SOL
Solana’s latest mainnet upgrade to v1.10.25 has received a rousing reception from the community. Many wonder what could have been if it was released during the bull market of December 2021. In fact, FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried believes there is much more to come from the Solana network.
“There are real solutions coming, some of which have been deployed.”
SBF retweeted a transaction confirmation by entrepreneur Brian Long. Long confirmed a sub-second transaction in his tweet, as given below. He is one of the many community members to have seen validator issues. For many, these might just be a thing of the past.
Additionally, the Solana network activity has also been on the rise with NFT sales gaining some recognition. Primate Academy NFTs on Solana rank second on the list of sales on 19 June with a volume of over $1.46 million. It has also seen a change of over 96% over the last 24 hours.
Even so, there is a huge problem developing on Solana DeFi. The Total Value Locked (TVL) has dropped by $1.56 billion from the onset of June. At the time of writing, this stood at $2.43 billion, with macro conditions playing their part in the collapse.
