FTX unstakes SOL worth millions: Is Solana's bull run in danger?

  • SOL was up by more than 23% over the last seven days. 
  • Metrics looked bullish on SOL, but market indicators told a different story. 

Solana [SOL] displayed an impressive performance as its price rallied in double digits in the last few days. Though the uptrend gave investors confidence, the scenario might not take long to change, especially if recent developers are to be considered.

Notably, infamous crypto exchange FTX might make a move that can turn the tides against Solana’s favor.

Solana shows promise

Solana’s price surged by more than 23% over the last seven days, showing potential. Moreover, according to CoinMarketCap, in the last 24 hours alone, the token’s price went up by over 6%.

At the time of writing, SOL was trading at $38.16 with a market capitalization of more than $16 billion, making it the seventh-largest crypto. The price uptrend was also accompanied by a rise in the token’s trading volume.

But despite the bullish momentum, Nansen’s latest tweet signaled trouble brewing on the horizon for SOL. Particularly, FTX had started to unstake SOL tokens worth millions of dollars.

If the exchange decides to sell those tokens, we can expect SOL’s liquidity to go up, which might be followed by a price correction.

An additional 1.6 million SOL, worth more than $57 million, started the process of unstaking on 31 October. Amidst this, the market’s confidence in SOL also seemed to have dwindled, which could also increase the chances of a price correction in the days to follow.

LunarCrush’s data revealed that SOL’s social engagement had dropped along with its bullish sentiment. Another bearish signal was Solana’s AltRank, which went up, increasing the chances of a price downtrend.

Going forward

Regardless of the darkening skies, SOL’s position seemed relatively stable at press time. This was evident from the fact that SOL’s Binance Funding Rate was green. This meant that derivatives investors were buying Solana at its higher price.

Its Open Interest and Price Volatility 1w also increased during this time.

However, other concerns reared their head at the time of writing; both the Money Flow Index (MFI) and Relative Strength Index (RSI) entered overbought zones at press time. This indicated rising selling pressure on the token.

But SOL’s MACD continued to support the buyers as it displayed a bullish crossover.
