Read Solana’s [SOL] Price Prediction 2023-24
Some not-so-impressive moves…
According to CoinMarketCap, SOL’s price also took a sideways path like several other cryptos as its price remained less volatile. At the time of writing, SOL was trading at $20.43. It had a market capitalization of over $8 billion, making it the 10th largest crypto by market cap.
Not only did Solana’s price remain dormant, but its NFt ecosystem took a blow during the last month. CRYPTOSLAM’s data revealed that in the last 30 days, SOL’s NFT sales declined by more than 22%. Additionally, NFT buyers and sellers also declined by 20% and 16%, respectively.
As per Santiment’s chart, Solana’s NFT trade volume in USD also plummeted last week. However, despite the decline, it was interesting to see that the number of NFT trade count increased in the past seven days.
Solana Mobile recently posted an update, which can help revive Solana’s NFT space. The tweet mentioned that the first Saga exclusive mint of the Claynosaurz: The Call of Saga collection will go live on 30 May 2023. The first mint will consist of 400 out of 2,000 new Clayno NFTs in this collection.

Metrics aren’t supportive of SOL
Though the new mints can help change Solana’s NFT statistics, the blockchain’s on-chain performance might not help SOL on the price front. For instance, SOL’s latest price decline was followed by a slight increase in volume, which is bearish.
SOL’s weighted sentiment also remained low. LunarCrush’s data revealed that bullish sentiments around SOL declined by more than 14% along with an increase in Altrank, further increasing the chances of further sluggish price action.

A look at SOL’s daily chart gave more reasons to worry. The token’s Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon pointed out that the bears had an upper hand in the market as the distance between the 20-day EMA and the 55-day EMA was increasing.
SOL’s Money Flow Index (MFI) registered a downtick, which was a bearish development. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) however, gave hope for a trend reversal as it went up slightly.
