Solana Price Analysis: SOL Price Poised To Spike 50% in Q1-2023
Solana (SOL) has gained over 22 percent in the past seven days to trade around $13.51 on Wednesday. However, the SOL price is yet to fully recover from the FTX and Alameda implosion, which saw the digital asset lose over 60 percent in a week. Moreover, Solana was highly incentivized in the FTX ecosystem through token listings and liquidity provision.
Having returned to mid-December resistance, a popular crypto analyst on Twitter has highlighted that SOL will trade around $20 before the end of the first quarter of 2023. Citing a technical standpoint, the analyst believes the digital asset will consolidate at current levels before heading toward $20 before the end of March.
As such, the popular crypto analyst dubbed Inmortal [@inmortalcrypto] is convinced traders who bought Solana below $10 have their portfolio performing well.
The Solana ecosystem is suffering from a lack of development activity and network attacks. Nonetheless, SOL has seen its daily trading volume up significantly in the past few days, standing at about $1.7 billion today. For comparison purposes, BNB, XRP and Dogecoin all have a 24-hour volume of less than $1 billion, according to our latest crypto data.
Notably, a spike in daily traded volume on Solana (SOL) is a high indicator of more upside in the coming weeks. Furthermore, the SOL ecosystem has managed to significantly distance itself from the FTX fiasco.
Closer Look at Solana (SOL) Market Outlook
The Solana ecosystem takes pride in over 11.5 million active accounts and has facilitated over 22 million NFTs minted. Furthermore, Solana’s high throughput and low trading fees make it a perfect fit for NFTs of all shapes and sizes. Some of the top NFT marketplaces on Solana include SolSea, Metaplex, Candy Machine, Gumdrop, and RPC Infrastructure.
Top NFT projects on the Solana network include Cryptokickers, Degen Apes, and Solana Monkey Business.
The Solana ecosystem has been developing a mobile development kit for Web3 developers seeking to tap into the Saga phone. Notably, the Solana Mobile Stack, developed by Solana Mobile and coming first on the Android-compatible Saga phone, aims to make mobile more crypto-friendly.
Nonetheless, the Sol ecosystem is yet to convince the crypto community of its network stability. Moreover, network downs were very rampant last year fueled by bugs.
Meanwhile, the Solana ecosystem takes pride in a global community ready to support its Web3 products like SolanaPay.
Bitcoin To Hit Bottom in Q1-2023! BTC Price Can Plunge to This Potential Low Level
The most prominent and leading crypto token is having a rough time this year due to the historical crypto market crash in May. Bitcoin price has lost more than 60% since the beginning of 2022. According to a recent tweet by a prominent crypto strategist Toni Ghinea, BTC price may drop to the bottom line in the chart and trade between $9K to $13K before gaining a positive momentum by the beginning of 2023.
BTC Price Is Predicted To Slip Downward!
Bitcoin price is struggling to break the $20K level after it significantly dropped on 6 October. It is now starting a fresh decline to 18K as it has been affected by several macroeconomic factors including the CPI data.
Toni Ghinea, a popular crypto strategist and analyst, predicts that BTC price can soon make new lows and hit the bottom line in Q1 of 2023. He previously predicted that Bitcoin would fall below the $16K level in the next 3-6 months, and eventually, it is now turning out to be true!
According to him, Bitcoin is predicted to reach a price level between $14K to $16K by the end of November. However, BTC will make a slight upward reversal to $18K before significantly dropping further between a price level of $9K to $13K in Q1 of 2023. The analyst has given a slight relief as BTC may project an upward trajectory above $18K by the beginning of April 2023.
How Will The Bitcoin Price React Next?
The Bitcoin price has slid down near its crucial support level after falling from $20K last week. Bitcoin is witnessing a slow and steady decline below the $19.5K pivot level and SMA-100 (simple moving average) trend line. As Bitcoin is correlated to the US stocks, its price can plummet more following the general market’s reaction.
According to CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin is currently trading at $18,316, with a downtrend of nearly 4% from yesterday’s price. EMA-50 and EMA-20 have dropped and traded near $19,000. Bitcoin has fallen by almost $1,000 today, with an intra-day low of $18,190.
The Bollinger band’s upper limit is at $19,400, where EMA-100 is currently trading, and it is near the 23.6% Fib retracement. To make an upward move, bitcoin investors need to buy in the dip and push its price above the immediate resistance level of $19,400. If Bitcoin successfully holds its price above this level, we can again see a $22K price range.
However, the bullish momentum is not expected to happen anytime soon as the RSI-14 trades at 37-level, hinting at a selling pressure due to the US stock market. The MACD line is also going downward and trading below its trend line. If bitcoin price falls below the $18K level, it can further push its price to the downside and trade near the next support level at $17,500.
