Solana is Continuing to Surge
On Thursday, the Solana price surged by double digits and its total traded volume reached $1.2 billion (24 hours), surpassing Ethereum's $1.1 billion - the first time Solana's total traded volume exceeded that of Ethereum.
Solana has increased more than 38% in the last week, more than 62% over the last month, and more than 690% over the last year and currently making a massive comeback after the decline in the price of Solana for the last 1.5 years after the drop in interest in the NFT market.
Solana is designed to handle thousands of transactions per second, built specifically for the development of Dapps, and has a low transaction fee, making it a strong competitor to Ethereum.
Memecoins which were traditionally Ethereum (ERC-20) tokens, have shifted and we are seeing a larger migration of meme coins to Solana, which is one of the primary reasons we have seen the significant price increase of Solana. In addition to increased investor confidence in the market, recent increases in the price of Bitcoin, and more liquidity in the market.
The biggest gainer on the Solan blockchain is the meme coin BONK, with many other meme coins on the Solana blockchain, which has resulted in a significant increase in the volume and price of Solona. This also suggests, that this may be the beginning of another meme coin season (on the Solana Blockchain), which is typically a good sign for the market as it suggests investors believe the market is bullish and are willing to exercise more risky trades.
How to Find the Next 100x Altcoin?
As we approach the run-up phase of the market, a time when +100x gains are realistically possible, I thought it would be a good time to dig into the methodology and approach for finding the next big +100x altcoin.
+100x Altcoins aren't without their precedent; historical trends have shown that significant market upswings often follow Bitcoin's halving events and its during this part of the cycle that many cryptocurrency investors have historically recorded their most substantial profits.
For those aiming to identify the next +100x altcoin, consider this framework:
1 - Identify a Trending Sector:
Focus on sectors gaining momentum within the crypto space during the current cycle. Emerging sectors like Play-to-Earn Gaming, tokenization of Real-World Assets, AI, or Decentralized Science (DeSci) are examples of niche sectors that could fuel the next bull run.
2- Mass Appeal and Marketability:
The project should resonate on a global scale and have the capacity to generate substantial hype. This means a clear, compelling value proposition that addresses a wide and global audience's needs or interests.
3- Doxed and Credible Team:
Generally, the most successful long-term projects are those with a team that is doxed and all members of the team known and have a verifiable track record. While I am a big proponent of Anonymity, when it comes to the development team, Anonymity can be a red flag in projects aiming for longevity and trust.
4 - Early Stage Opportunity:
Look for projects in their first cycle, preferably before they've reached their price peak. These projects often present the most significant upside potential as they are yet to be fully discovered by the broader market.
5- Technical Analysis - Bullish Chart Patterns:
The project should be either a robust Layer-1 blockchain or built upon a solid existing blockchain. This ensures that the foundation is secure, scalable, and reliable.
Community and Communication:
A vibrant, active community across platforms like Twitter, Telegram, and Discord can be indicative of a healthy, engaged user base. Additionally, look for projects that maintain regular, transparent communication and updates.
Visibility and Accessibility:
Projects listed on prominent tracking websites like CoinMarketCap or CoinGecko are generally more accessible and scrutinized, potentially leading to a broader investor base.
Professional Online Presence:
Lastly, a well-designed, informative website acts as the project's front door. It should professionally present the project's vision, team, roadmap, and technical details.
These are just some of the characteristics we look at when we are looking to invest in a project. If you would like to learn more about our methodology and how we apply our framework, we go into detail in this in-depth article.
