Dodging the broader market correction, Solana (SOL) continues to make new highs in the market. Over the last 24 hours, Solana (SOL) has surged another 20% making a new all-time high of $199.
As of press time, Solana’s SOL token is trading 20.30% up at $118. With a market cap of $34.3 billion, Solana also becomes the eighth largest cryptocurrency toppling players like Polkadot (DOT) and USDC. Solana’s SOL crypto now eyes a move above Dogecoin (DOGE) which is the seventh-largest player as of now.
Amid the solid price rally, Solana is currently dominating all conversations in the crypto space. As on-chain data provider Santiment reports:
Solana is making up nearly 10% of #crypto conversations right now as it blasted off to a new #AllTimeHigh of $106.82. As and most other #altcoins range, volatile & pumping coins like $SOL will continue to intrigue traders looking for action.
Furthermore, Solana is all set to unveil a new “Ignition” feature later today. Last week, Solana released a video teaser showing a burning flame. While it has little details as of now, the community is guessing about a possible SOL token burn. This will further put supply pressure and drive SOL prices higher.
