Solana Based Meme Coin Also Got Noticed

The increase last week was brought on by the launch of the BONK coin, an alternative to SHIB that was developed by Solana developers with a Shiba Inu theme. Even though the launch party was short-lived, BONK nonetheless surpassed all other significant cryptocurrencies for the week.  As per reports, SOL’s market indicators were also bullish, implying that the rally will continue in the coming days.

Solana is a layer-1 proof-of-stake blockchain network that enables programmers to build non-fungible currencies and decentralized finance apps (DeFi) (NFTs). SOL’s price fluctuated between $0.50 and $1.50 for the rest of the year after its launch in March 2020. Then, during the 2021 crypto bull run, SOL became one of the top-performing assets, with its price reaching $55.91 by May 2021. SOL’s price fell as low as $23.49 in July 2021. But it rose again in the second half of the year, reaching an all-time high of $258.93 in November 2021.
