The post Solana (SOL) Under Fire: Can The Bulls Ignite A Rebound Amid SEC Pressure? appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News
The Solana (SOL) network has been enduring a macro bear market since reaching its all-time high (ATH) of approximately $260 in November 2021. Despite the relief rally in the crypto bear market earlier this year, Solana’s price failed to surpass the previous FTX levels, unlike other leading digital assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. However, there are positive signs of a decreased rate of decline, thanks to improved fundamentals, such as the introduction of the Saga smartphone.
Crypto Tony Identifies Bullish Solana Case
Renowned digital asset analyst Crypto Tony (@CryptoTony_) recently stated on Twitter that Solana bulls must succeed in converting the resistance level at approximately $16.20 into a support zone and maintain their position above it to secure a potential price rebound. According to the analyst, if this scenario unfolds as anticipated, Solana could experience a 19 percent surge, reaching around $19.20 in the following weeks.
Examining The Market Sentiment
Over the past seven months, the total value locked within the Solana ecosystem has remained around $250 million, indicating a potential market bottom. Furthermore, the Solana ecosystem has made remarkable progress since the FTX collapse late last year. Noteworthy Solana-based decentralized finance (DeFi) projects with substantial on-chain activity include Marinade Finance, Orca DEX, Solend, Raydium, and Lido Finance, among others.
Regulatory Challenges Loom
However, the Solana ecosystem now faces regulatory scrutiny in the United States following the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) assertion that SOL is an unregistered security and must adhere to the applicable securities laws, including disclosure requirements.
