The upward trend is intensifying as speculators begin to see Solana as one of the toughest rivals to Ethereum, the leading smart contract platform grappling with rising gas fees and network congestion issues.

For example, Solana claims to be able to process 50,000-60,000 transactions per second (tps) with an average transaction fee of $ 0.00025. Meanwhile, Ethereum trades between 15 and 30 tps with average fees ranging from $ 4 to $ 21.

Adjusted risk for SOL. Price

Although the recent rally catapults the course to all-time highs, the SOL is threatened with a correction due to at least 2 declining indicators.

First, price formed a rising wedge, a technical pattern that often leads to lower lows. Second, the SOL has also confirmed a bearish divergence between bullish and bearish impulses (confirmed by a lower low in the daily relative strength index).

Breaking the lower trend line of the wedge and increasing volume would risk the SOL sinking much deeper, equal to the maximum height. With that, the target for a crash is almost between $ 205 and $ 91.52, depending on where a bearish breakout begins.
