The news surrounding Solana has been positive lately, while there are some advantages over other cryptocurrencies.

400 projects already in the network: There are currently over 400 projects, including DeFi, on the Solana network. This shows how popular this blockchain has already become among developers.
A strong alternative to Ethereum: Ethereum was the first programmable blockchain, i.e. H. a blockchain that supports other applications and cryptocurrencies.

Solana ttechnical analysis: on the way to 155 dollars?
From a technical point of view, it is worth noting that Solana (SOL) broke the $ 130 resistance yesterday evening. This level now becomes immediate support. Further down is another support at $ 120 followed by the uptrend line from August 27th at $ 115.
A break below this level would call Solana’s short-term bullish profile into question. Analysis of the daily chart, however, suggests that the bias will remain bullish as long as Solana defends the important psychological level of $ 100 on a daily closing basis.
The next immediate target of the move up is the psychological $ 150 mark, followed by the 123.6 percent Fibonacci expansion of the rally from $ 22.11 to $ 143.67, which is found at $ 172.65.
