Solana price rose to proficiency in 2021 when it was ranked among the best-performing assets, but the series of crashes that followed left it in the weeds. However, over the last couple of months, Solana seems to have carved some attention for itself, which is visible in the on-chain performance of the asset.

Solana takes over Ethereum

According to a report from Nansen, Solana observed significantly more transactions on a daily basis during the second quarter than Ethereum ever could. 

All in all, over 40 million non-vote transactions were recorded, while in the case of Ethereum, only a little over 1.1 million transactions could be observed. Although the report highlighted that the volatility observed in the case of Ethereum was far lower than Solana, giving the former more stability.

As it is, SOL is struggling to recover, and the added pressure from the bears is going to make it far more difficult for it going forward. The altcoin has been stuck below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the $136-$26 decline, and might end up staying there, showing some restraints in the future as well.
