  • BNB and SOL traded with an increase in value.

For years, the top two assets have maintained a consistent ranking. However, fierce competition has emerged between Solana [SOL] and Binance Coin [BNB] in the lower ranks. Recently, one of them successfully surpassed the other, resulting in a new order.

Solana climbs over BNB in ranking

Recent data from CoinMarketCap showed that Solana has surpassed Binance Coin in market capitalization. An analysis conducted by AMBCrypto revealed that SOL’s market cap was now over $49 billion, while BNB’s market cap was over $48 billion.

Further examination of their seven-day trends sheds light on the reasons behind SOL’s flip over BNB. The data showed that in the last seven days, SOL has experienced a growth of over 17%, whereas BNB has seen an increase of around 8%.

At the time of this writing, both Solana and Binance Coin were experiencing a slight decline in their 24-hour trends. However, the decrease is less than 1%.

Recent data from CoinMarketCap revealed that Solana has surpassed Binance Coin in terms of trading volume. As of the current writing, SOL’s trading volume has exceeded $2.3 billion, while BNB’s volume is approximately $847 million.

Analyzing the three-day trend for SOL, it consistently recorded volumes of over $1 billion and, at the end of 13th February, reached over $3 billion.
