Solana network performance puts SOL on a pedestal

As Solana continues to be a powerhouse in the cryptocurrency playing field, institutional data platform for digital assets Artemis shows that Solana is dominating daily transactions, accounting for over 30% across layer 1 (L1) and layer 2 (L2) networks.

Data according to this dashboard showcases the heft of Solana as a powerhouse in transaction activity, which has for the longest time highlighted Solana’s performance.

Daily transactions

Solana is a high-performance blockchain platform known for its fast transaction speeds and low fees. Transaction activity on the Solana network refers to the volume of transactions being processed on the blockchain at any given time.

This activity can include various interactions such as transferring SOL, executing smart contracts, decentralized applications (dApps) interactions, and more. Solana has emerged as the leading platform for on-chain financial activity, with its total transaction fees surging by approx. 417%. With this, it surpassed BNB Chain and Tron as meme coins on the blockchain continue to raise hundreds of millions.

The activity was so much that recently the network suffered a slowdown, ascribed to the current software system being unable to handle the overwhelming traffic volume. Head of communications for Solana Labs had addressed the issue in an X post.

Solana price recently completed a rounding bottom pattern, which is a bullish reversal pattern that happens after a prolonged downtrend. With the $130.45 support holding, Solana looks primed for a rally, which could be activated by a bullish reaction from altcoins following the BTC halving.
