What Happened: Solana has been seeing a rather strong bullish trend throughout the year, oftentimes presenting significant gains even when most of the cryptocurrency market was seeing losses. In fact, last week Solana successfully swam upstream and increased its value as the broader crypto market corrected. On Friday, with a mixed market, the coin saw two-digit gains.
Solana was trading at $1.5386 as of January 1, 2021, and as of press time it is trading 12,289% higher at $190.62, according to CoinMarketCap data. This means that an investment of $1,000 made on January 1, would be worth over $122,000 today.
