Solana price fails to rally as the network experiences degraded performance


  • The Solana network suffered a drop in performance due to a spike in high compute transactions, reducing its capacity. 
  • The network was plagued with failed transactions as developers worked on the resiliency. 
  • Analysts noted Solana's freefall and predicted the altcoin's drop to $140. 

Solana price dropped over 7% in the past 24 hours. The network suffered from degraded performance, and the altcoin's price plunged. 

Solana price dropped below $140 in the recent price drop 

Solana network was subjected to severe criticism in response to the recent drop in the altcoin's performance. The network was hit by a spike in high compute transactions, reducing its capacity to several thousand transactions per second. 

Therefore, transactions of users on the Solana network failed. Developers across the Solana ecosystem worked together to address these issues and improve the resilience of the Solana network. 

The incident drove Solana price to freefall, and the altcoin has posted over 37% losses in the past 30 days. 

@Trader_XO, a pseudonymous crypto analyst, has predicted a bounce in Solana price if it drops to $120. 

@AltcoinSherpa, a crypto analyst and trader, evaluated the Solana price trend and predicted a drop to the $140 level. The analyst believes that the Bitcoin pullback fueled the Solana price drop since altcoins have historically reacted negatively. 

@ShardiB2, analyst and investor, argued that Solana was oversold before the drop to $140, and the altcoin is still in the same zone.

FXStreet analysts believe that Solana bears have taken over, which could push the altcoin's price lower. The analysts had predicted Solana price drop to $150.
