Solana ranks among the largest NFT Blockchains

The upward movement of Solarium seems to form part of a broader trend that drives Ethereum and the assets of rival blockchains. Polkadot has recently reached new all-time price highs, and Terra and Avalanche they also come closer.

During the recent rise in Solarium, the CEO of Solana Labs, Anatoly Yakovenko, commented on the place of the blockchain in the broader cryptocurrency ecosystem, praising the innovation of Ethereum and suggesting that the success of Solarium will not be driven by the possible failure of the merger of Ethereum to a proof-of-stake mechanism, an update planned for 2022.

But without a doubt, the last rally of Solarium is tightening the competition between blockchains third generation. After the climb, Solarium has positioned itself as one of the largest blockchains by market capitalization to host decentralized applications such as the now popular ones tokens non-expendable (NFT).

There is no doubt that the accelerated adoption of NFT on Solarium, as well as the increasing total value locked (TVL) in decentralized finance protocols (DeFi) What Raydium and Killer whale, which currently reaches a total of USD $ 1.4 billion, have contributed to the parabolic growth of the network and the price of their SOL token.
