Solana: Amidst ecosystem growth, can SOL hit $3000?

2min Read

A $3,000 price tag means Solana would have to achieve a $1.25 trillion market cap. Bitcoin peaked at $1.22 trillion at the height of the previous bull run, hence SOL’s trajectory is not an impossible feat.

Solana: Amidst ecosystem growth, can SOL hit $3000?

  • Solana’s expanding ecosystem suggested good times ahead for SOL bulls.
  • As per a report by an asset management firm, SOL could attain a price tag of $3000.

It’s no secret that the Solana [SOL] network has recently been receiving more attention. This is not by chance, but rather due to the fact that the network has been aggressively building in preparation for the next major rally.

Solana has thus been experiencing healthy growth thanks to the focus on developments. It also owes that growth to the growing number of protocols that have constituted its ballooning ecosystem.

A recent Messari post offered a glimpse at the key areas that have been fueling Solana’s growth. Consumer apps, liquid staking tokens, derivatives, and lending tokens are among them.

The aforementioned areas support the likelihood that Solana will experience robust growth moving forward. That growth could trickle down into positive price performance for its native cryptocurrency, SOL.

Also, the more projects within the ecosystem, the higher the level of Development Activity.

But just how much of an impact will it have in the long term? A recent report by an asset management firm called VanEck suggested that SOL’s price could rally above $3000.

Is $3000+ a reasonable price target for SOL?

A $3,000 price tag means Solana would have to achieve a $1.25 trillion market cap. Bitcoin [BTC] peaked at $1.22 trillion at the height of the previous bull run, hence it is not an impossible feat.

However, it is worth considering that Solana does not have the same first mover advantage as Bitcoin. Also, the Solana network does not have a major selling point that could fuel its market cap to such awesome heights.

The market cap that Solana requires to soar above $3,000 is quite a long journey from its current level. The network had a $13.49 billion market cap at the time of writing.

It would probably be easier for Solana to reach such a high market cap without competition. However, the reality is different, as it had multiple blockchain networks competing in the same markets at the time of writing.


Realistic or not, here’s SOL’s market cap in BTC’s terms


Nevertheless, recent data revealed that the Solana network and other top layer 1s were receiving more attention now than their Layer 2 counterparts.

Although L1s were enjoying more activity, it is worth noting that Solana still has to content with the competition. This means the long term goal of a $3,000 price tag for SOL is not within the realm of attainability any time soon.
