Solana continues to show growth
According to the latest data from Artemis, new contracts deployed to Solana have reached a year-to-date high.
This signifies substantial growth and heightened activity within the Solana ecosystem, showcasing the increased adoption and utilization of the Solana blockchain for various decentralized applications (dApps) and smart contract development. Such a trend suggests a vibrant developer community and a growing interest in building on the Solana network.
However, while the number of contracts being deployed on Solana is on the rise, the DeFi sector has not witnessed equivalent growth. Artemis’ data highlights a noticeable decline in the Total Value Locked (TVL) of Solana over the past few days.
Additionally, the volumes of decentralized exchanges (DEXs) on Solana have also experienced a significant decrease, indicating a waning interest in Solana’s DEXs.
In the NFT sector, the volume of Solana NFTs being traded has seen a drastic fall. Despite this decline, the total floor value of Solana NFTs has remained relatively stable, with no substantial depreciation observed.
Court of the law and public opinion
The reduction in NFT trading volume could be attributed to the prevailing negative sentiment surrounding Solana within the crypto community. Santiment’s data reveals a significant decrease in the weighted sentiment, suggesting that negative comments currently outweigh positive ones.
One potential factor contributing to the declining sentiment might be the SEC lawsuit against Binance. Furthermore, the recent delisting of SOL from the Bakkt exchange has added to the negative sentiment, potentially leading to further price impact if more exchanges follow suit.
Despite these challenges, stakers have continued to show interest in SOL.
