One reason for this growth in daily active users is the growing interest in Solana’s DeFi and NFT spaces. In particular, Solana’s DeFi daily active users witnessed a spike over the last month, which contributed to growth in terms of Solana’s total value locked (TVL).

According to DeFiLlama, the TVL for Solana increased from $206 million to $242.77 million in just one month.

The interest in Solana NFTs has also been on the rise. According to Solana Floor’s Data, the network’s NFTs are being bought, sold, and traded at an increasing rate. The total floor value of Solana NFTs increased materially over the past month, as evidenced by the charts below. The volume of Solana NFTs being traded also increased during the same duration.

Additionally, dApp activity on the network grew rapidly, which also contributed to the spike in daily active users. Popular dApps such as Magic Eden, Raydium and Saber, all witnessed an uptick in the number of unique active wallets on their respective platforms.

While the price of SOL was $16.20 at press time and fell by 1.31% in the last 24 hours, the long-term growth prospects of the Solana network looked promising due to the increasing number of daily active users, growing interest in DeFi and NFTs, and rising dApp activity.
