Most of the altcoins are still within the impact of the previous day plunge. The top 10 crypto assets are dropping with significant numbers. Solana, Litecoin and Binance Coin prices scrambled to the lower levels manifesting a bearish trend. Despite the global market capitalization having incurred a loss of 1.42%, yet the current dip may be a substantial correction rather than a bear market.
Solana (SOL) Price Could Slash Beyond $200
Solana price was maintaining a particular pattern since the beginning of the last quarter of 2021. The asset maintained a particular pattern by raising and accumulating for some time. The asset amid accumulation formed multiple higher highs and lows in order to capitulate strength. However, the previous day’s plunge invalidate the pattern as the asset dropped significantly after accumulation.
The asset despite the plunge seems to have sustained above the support levels and may retrace with a notable spike. If in the worst case, the asset fails to sustain at current levels then the probability of a plunge below $200 is more. It may revisit the support levels at $180 then, however, they still may be pretty much distinct.
Litecoin(LTC) Price May Encounter 20% Dip
Litecoin price since the May dip has maintained pretty sustainable and parallel price movements. However, the fresh drop declined the price through the greater region and may continue to do so before pulling the next leg up. No doubt the price could surge with notable margin, yet the $300 target appears to be a little difficult to attain.
The asset maintained an ascending channel since the flip from the bearish divergence in the mid of July. The asset touched the lower support levels a couple of times, yet rebounded well and headed towards the upper resistance. Currently, the asset may test the support levels at $200 and attempt to flip. If it remains unsuccessful then the lower support levels around $180 which is also an uptrend line may hold it tight.
Binance Coin (BNB) Price Attempts To Rebound!
Binance coin in an attempt to break out from the rising wedge plummeted a couple of times. Despite the pullback, yet the asset is attempting to rebound with a fresh jump. However, the bears have also jumped in and are trying to squeeze out the profits. And hence a tough fight between the bulls and the bears is witnessed at the press time.
If the breakout is successful then the asset could initially smash the $600 range initially and propel above $650. Yet the main target still remains above $750, much higher than its ATH at around $704. However, the asset is trending within a rising wedge and reaching its peak, it may face a slight rejection.
Collectively, the crypto space since the past couple of hours is attempting hard to rebound and recover the losses. And hence Solana, Litecoin & Binance Coin are also following the same suit. If the flip is successful then these assets could break through the bearish consolidation else a last dip could occur before a gigantic rally.
Solana price positioned for new bull rally towards $275
- Solana price breaks out above bull flag, indicating uptrend continuation.
- Moving and holding above $220 is essential to continue bullish momentum.
- Failure to extend higher here could see new monthly lows.
Solana price has hugged the top of the Cloud (Senkou Span A) as its primary support level for the past week. The respect of Senkou Span A as support has resulted in Solana moving and closing above one of the two Ichimoku levels necessary to confirm a new uptrend.
Solana price must close above the $220 value area before testing $275
Solana price is up against its primary and final Ichimoku resistance level on the daily Ichimoku chart. The Kijun-Sen within the Ichimoku system represents medium-term support and resistance and is the primary level for intraday and intraweek trading strategies within the Ichimoku system. The Kijun-Sen at the $220 level is precisely where Solana finds itself pushing against.
A daily close of Solana price above $220 provides more protection from near-term downside movement than it does upside potential for a couple of reasons. First, a close above the Kijun-Sen would convert the Kijun-Sen from a resistance level to support. Second, because retests of breakouts from bull flags are extremely common, the combination of the Kijun-Sen and top of the bull flag create a double-support structure.
SOL/USDT Daily Ichimoku Chart
Solana price does have downside risks. The Composite Index has created a high above the previous high peak on November 21st, while the candlestick chart shows the current daily high is lower than the November 21st high. This creates a condition known as hidden bearish divergence – a warning that the current drive higher may fail.
It is essential that Solana price close above the November 21st open of $217, or the hidden bearish divergence may push Solana back into the bull flag and likely even lower to test the bottom of the Cloud (Senkou Span B) at $184.
Will Solana [SOL] give Ethereum [ETH] a run for the money?
Solana is showing a promising situation in terms of attracting more projects, and it seems the battle with Ethereum continues strongly. There are many projects announcing every day about migration from Ethereum to the Solana network.
It seems the gas price and scalability features of the latter are attracting them significantly. Although Ethereum itself is in a good position because of various sectors like DeFi, NFT, and metaverse running on it, Solana has been successful in hosting more projects and may give Ethereum a run for the money.
One of the latest projects announcing a migration to Ethereum is Crowny. Crowny is a platform that connects users to their loved brands. It rewards users for engaging with their lived brands and is growing fast in terms of attracting users. According to the latest announcement on Twitter, the platform is set to migrate from Ethereum to Solana on December 8th. The real reason behind this migration is lower costs per transaction on Solana compared to Ethereum.
Besides, the scalability features let Crowny and Raydium grow faster and attract more users. According to the announcement, the Crowny team believes in Solana’s various features:
“Solana blockchain offers extremely low costs per transaction and ensures limitless scalability for years to come. This cutting-edge architecture is all about speed. It’s the fastest blockchain around. As hardware improves, so does the network.”
Another good news for the Solana community comes from the famous decentralized web browser Brave. Brave browser announced some days ago that it partners with Solana to integrate that blockchain into the browser and make it the default for dApp support. It’s great news for Solana because Brave is currently one of the most famous browsers in the market. It can benefit developers on Solana who can provide their dApps to a bugger user-base in this scenario.
Brave has 42 million monthly active users and 1.3 million verified creators. The reason for choosing Solana is the same as Crowny. Lower transaction fees and supporting fast Web3 applications are great benefits of this blockchain. Brendan Eich, CEO, and co-founder of Brave said:
“With more and more users and creators requiring tools for fast and affordable access to the decentralized Web, this integration will seamlessly pave the way for the next billion crypto users to harness applications and tokens.”
More users and projects on Solana means more opportunities for growth in this ecosystem. When the migrations from Ethereum to Solana grow, it shows great benefits in the competition that can even result in higher deployments and higher prices for the SOL token.
This is causing users to choose Solana over Ethereum
Ethereum’s gas fees and speeds are costing not just users, but the ecosystem itself as more and more players are migrating to rival blockchains.
The latest stakeholder to make the move is Crowny – an app rewarding shoppers for various interactions with brands. The date for its migration to Solana is slated for 8 December.
The date for the Migration to @Solana is set!🚀
December 8th is when Crowny and @RaydiumProtocol make it happen, more details will follow!🔥 pic.twitter.com/Wzog22VoNc— Crowny 🔗 Our Beta App Is Live (@crownyio) November 29, 2021
In a Twitter thread, Crowny stated,
“Solana blockchain offers extremely low costs per transaction and ensures limitless scalability for years to come. This cutting edge architecture is all about speed. It’s the fastest blockchain around. As hardware improves, so does the network.”
Moving day is here
Choosing Solana over Ethereum isn’t a novel incident. In July 2021, Powerledger, an Australian company in the area of technology and energy, decided to move its platform from Ethereum to Solana.
Co-founder and executive chairman Dr. Jemma Green had commented,
“Our new blockchain platform based on Solana will be tens of thousands of times faster than Ethereum but also energy efficient. As we started this project to allow renewables to be scaled, part of our mission is to be light on our own carbon footprint.”
Another example is the privacy-protecting Internet browser Brave. The company announced a partnership with Solana at the Breakpoint Lisbon event in Portugal. Brave’s official release stated,
“High transaction fees seen on Ethereum (due to increased interest in crypto and DeFi) have held some users back from transacting. Solana is the fastest blockchain in the world and provides the opportunity to scale blockchain transactions for as little as $0.001 – $0.002 USD per transaction, providing significant cost savings for users.”
Furthermore, the Brave crypto wallet is set to integrate Solana in 2022, for decentralized app support.
Looking at these migrations and the reasons for the same, it appears that speed, fees, and energy efficiency are thorns on Ethereum’s side.
Time to pull out the roadmap
Needless to say, there’s a lot of pressure to bring Ethereum up to speed – literally. At the last All Core Devs meeting, Ethereum developers discussed diverse proposals to reduce transaction fees, which are also rising in rollups.
Developer Tim Beiko also noted that time was of the essence. He claimed that the proposals needed to ship before a fork in February.
