Solana SOL Failing at the 50 SMA Again, Despite Expansion

Solana, which is a Layer 1 blockchain that uses the proof-of-history (PoH) algorithm to verify transactions, has been showing increasing weakness since last November, when the second phase of the global crypto crackdown started. Solana is a very scalable blockchain, processing up to 700K transactions per second (TPS),  with a 1 gigabit per second network connection. As their Head of Product Engineering, Bartosz Lipinski, said at the recent Solana Hacker House World Tour event in Dubai, Solana is an open network upon which anyone can build applications”.

Solana was a very popular blockchain last year, with over 500 applications being built on it. Last month, Solana also announced the launch of the decentralized P2P payments protocol, Solana Pay, which is a decentralized payments protocol. This will allow merchants to accept and move any volume of assets compatible with the Solana network, any time, any place, for a fraction of a cent in fees. Solana Pay is already expected to provide competition for other fintech platforms, such PayPal.

Solana Pay has been integrated into crypto wallets, such as Phantom and Slope. Last week, Coinbase’s self-custody crypto wallet added Solana ecosystem tokens. Solana stands in second place regarding staked coins, at a value of $35 billion, and the total value locked (TVL) is $7.09 billion.

The range is tightening for SOL/USD

But nothing seems to be helping Solana’s SOL token at the moment, as the sentiment in the crypto market remains bearish overall. Solana reversed from the top at $260, and has declined all the way down to $78, where it formed a support zone that has been holding since January. On the other hand, this moving average is pushing the price lower, so the trading range is narrowing for this cryptocurrency, which means that there will be a breakout soon.

Last week, we saw a bullish move in the crypto market, which sent Solana above $90, but the momentum seemed weak and the climb has already stalled. The 50 SMA is once again acting as resistance and preventing any further gains. So the price might be heading back to the support soon. We are following the price action and might decide to buy at the support, but the crypto market sentiment will be a deciding factor.
