The Solana network has settled over 50 billion transactions since its launch. The altcoin could become the Visa of the cryptocurrency ecosystem according to analysts at the Bank of America.
Bank of America, America’s largest multinational bank, believes that the Solana blockchain could become “Visa of the digital asset ecosystem.” The Solana blockchain is focused on scalability, lowering transaction fees and ease of use.
ETH2 is expected to boost the scalability of the Ethereum network. However, analysts argue that Solana is faster and effective. Solana offers developers and users the advantages similar to Ethereum’s future upgrade, right away. This has boosted the utility and adoption of the Ethereum-killer.
Visa can process 1,700 Transactions per second (TPS), however Solana network theoretically can handle at most 65,000 TPS.
Alkesh Shah, analyst at the Bank of America was quoted as saying:
Solana prioritizes scalability, but a relatively less decentralized and secure blockchain has tradeoffs, illustrated by various network performance issues early on.
@TraderKoz, a crypto analyst and trader evaluated the Solana price trend and predicted a rally in the altcoin’s price. The analyst has set a target of $169.96 for Solana price.
@AltcoinSherpa, a pseudonymous analyst has predicted that Solana price could hit $170 with the current area as support.
$SOL: seems like this current area was support; makes sense given its the 200D EMA and the last area of true consolidation in September. Expecting at least a lower high to $170. #Solana pic.twitter.com/gbAJGnr8VA
