After a significant dip to $51.27, Solana (SOL) is currently witnessing a notable recovery in its market price, currently trading at $55.31 (up 7%). This upswing follows a period of intense volatility, with SOL reaching a peak of $63.80 last Saturday, marking an impressive 270% rally over 61 days, only to drop almost 20% subsequently.
The FTX Factor In The Solana Price Movement
FTX has probably been a significant influence on SOL’s price volatility. A report from Lookonchain, an on-chain analysis service, indicates that FTX’s liquidity in SOL has drastically diminished, with Solana worth only $185,000 remaining in their public addresses. “FTX deposited 250,000 SOL ($13.6 M) to Kraken 7 hours ago. Currently, FTX’s public addresses on Solana only have 3,408 SOL,” Lookonchain reported.
