Volume and market cap take a hit
AMBCrypto’s examination of Solana’s volume and market capitalization over the past 24 hours revealed a noticeable decline. At the time of this report, the market capitalization of SOL had decreased by more than 3%, per CoinMarketCap.
This decline could be attributed to the recent drop in SOL’s value over the last 48 hours.
Additionally, the trading volume had fallen by over 8% at the time of this report. This indicated that the number of trades occurring at this moment had decreased compared to the previous trading session.
Furthermore, the prevailing trading volume was predominantly characterized by selling pressure.
