Solana is one of the largest smart contract networks and a competitor for Ethereum. The network announced the launch of a web-3 focused phone Solana Mobile called “Saga”, an Android phone that enables traders to trade, mint NFTs and instantly access Decentralized Applications (dApps) on the Solana Network. 

The team behind Solana Mobile announced the launch of Saga Pass, a limited release digital collectible that offers a unique and rewarding experience to holders. Users who pre-ordered Saga but don’t have the NFT yet were recently offered a chance to mint a version of their pass.

Experts believe there is one Saga pass for each Saga and the phone’s key utility is the “Seed Vault” that securely holds the seed phrase for users. 

SOL price continues yielding massive gains, offering 30.3% returns to holders in the 24 hour period between January 13 and 14, 2022. Experts believe the Ethereum-killer is primed for further gains in the ongoing altcoin rally.
