Solana Surpasses Binance Coin To Claim 4th Spot In Market Valuation, Trader Recorded Notable Losses

Solana’s SOL token has made significant strides in the cryptocurrency market, surpassing Binance Coin (BNB) to secure the 4th rank in terms of market valuation.

This shift comes on the heels of a notable price spike over the weekend, further fueled by the growing frenzy surrounding meme coins on the blockchain, including $WIF, $BONK, and the latest addition, $BOME.

With SOL’s market value now exceeding $90 billion, the token experienced a remarkable 10% increase in value for the day, reaching its highest level since December 2021 at $209 per token.

This surge in activity underscores the increasing prominence of Solana within the crypto space.

Spotonchain data revealed significant activity from a massive whale identified as BU6N2, who deposited a substantial 200,000 SOL, equivalent to $40.5 million, onto Binance over the past 8 hours.

Notably, this whale has deposited a total of 300,000 SOL to Binance within the last 2 days, averaging $200.3 per token, amounting to $60.1 million. 

Turns And Twists Of Whales In The Solana Ecosystem

The whale still retains a sizable holding of 1.52 million SOL, valued at $305 million, with a portion potentially earmarked for further deposit onto centralized exchanges (CEX).

While many traders capitalized on the surge in Solana memecoin activity to turn a profit, Lookonchain identified a wallet exhibiting a different pattern. This particular wallet engaged in trading 11 memecoins within a span of 3 days, consistently experiencing losses on each trade. 

With a total loss of 754 SOL, equivalent to $147,000, the trader’s behavior suggests a pattern of fear of missing out (FOMO), consistently buying at high prices and selling at lower ones.

As Solana’s momentum continues to build amidst the broader market activity, investors and traders will closely monitor its performance and the evolving dynamics within the cryptocurrency landscape.
