Solana improves on downtime
Step Data Insights‘ recent report has provided a positive outlook on the current status of Solana. The report highlighted that Solana has achieved a remarkable 100% uptime over the past six months. While this might appear unremarkable at first glance, considering the difficulties the network faced in the preceding year lends context to this achievement.

Furthermore, a closer examination of the uptime records revealed that the network’s last downtime occurred in February. In contrast, the network experienced downtime on 14 occasions in the prior year, encompassing minor and substantial disruptions.
Analyzing the Solana daily user trend
According to data from DefiLlama, the count of daily active users has remained relatively steady, displaying no significant shifts. While a slight decrease in the tally of daily active users was noticeable, this decline did not wield adequate influence to render the network either stable or unstable.
As of this writing, the daily active user count was over 88,000. In comparison, during the same period in 2023, the count was nearly 200,000.
However, a clear and conspicuous downtrend was notably evident in the Total Value Locked (TVL). Following its zenith at approximately $9.7 billion in 2021, the TVL has considerably reduced. At present, TVL is registered around $304 million.
SOL falls below its support
Solana experienced a substantial decline toward the previous year’s close, followed by a recovery at the start of the present year. While it has not yet fully regained its former position, it has demonstrated a favorable trajectory. This trend, however, is not unique to SOL alone, as the entire market has been encountering a less-than-impressive performance.
How much are 1,10,100 SOLs worth today
As of this writing, SOL was trading around $21, reflecting a minor loss of less than 1% based on the daily timeframe chart. Additionally, the ongoing trading session sustained the negative trends SOL underwent over the past few days.
This consecutive downturn has caused SOL’s value to dip below its long Moving Average (blue line), which had previously functioned as a support level.
