SOL faces further decline as price is rejected by 50-day MA
Solana SOL/USD has crashed by 14% in the last 24 hours. The losses have erased the gains in the week, which now remain at a positive 6.18%. The weekly recovery was boosted by increasing FOMO on the token and improving sentiment. The cryptocurrency has been experiencing increased retail interest and was mentioned on social trading groups.
SOL took a hit as inflation numbers on Tuesday came at 8.3%, surpassing estimates of 8.1%. The inflation was still below the previous 8.5%, but this may have spooked markets. Eyes will not be on the Fed, which is expected to tighten up the policy to tame prices.
Following the latest decline, Solana is hovering around $33. That despite investors looking at the smart contract platform as a true competitor of Ethereum. Frequent hacks have been responsible, which recently had the founder commenting.
Anatol Yakovenko said that Solana’s frequent network outages are like a curse. He, however, maintains that the network’s security is yet to be compromised. Yakovenko says that the outages have been caused by congestion due to the users entering the network.
