Solana (SOL) Price Prediction 2025-30: >$1200 in the offing by 2030?

Disclaimer: The datasets shared in the following article have been compiled from a set of online resources and do not reflect AMBCrypto’s own research on the subject.

Introduced over 2 years ago in 2020, Solana has emerged as a leading cryptocurrency that uses the “proof of stake” mechanism. This, besides being one of the first to use the innovative “proof of history” mechanism. In recent years, it is giving a tough run to Ethereum in the global cryptocurrency market. 

The currency soared by around 12,000% in 2021, remaining bullish almost throughout the year. At its launch, SOL’s price was below $1. However, during the bullish run of 2021, it rose to its ATH of $258.93 on 6 November. 

The current year so far has however proven to be highly volatile for all cryptocurrencies and Solana didn’t escape this brunt either. So far, its maximum price this year has been $136.38, dated 3 April. Solana’s blockchain has also been recently hacked and thousands of users have reported losing their funds worth around $8 million. At the time of writing, the altcoin was trading at just over $46.97.

Why these projections matter

Today, Solana is one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrencies in the market with almost 89 billion transactions so far. The average cost of a transaction on the platform is $0.00025, making it one of the most economical altcoins in the crypto-universe. With 1,850 validator nodes, it claims to be one of the most secure blockchain networks too.

Today, it is the 9th largest cryptocurrency in the market, with a market capitalization of over $13 billion. Thanks to its high speeds and low costs, Solana has successfully attracted the interest of both retail and institutional investors across the globe.

What is unique about the Solana blockchain is that it is the first platform to adapt the “proof of history” mechanism. Its innovative approach to technology has gained significant traction in the market. Ergo, investors must be well aware of its previous performance, current market sentiment, and future predictions.

In this piece, we shall closely observe the key performance parameters of Solana, with particular emphasis on its price, market cap, and volume. We shall also summarize the predictions of the world’s most popular and reliable analysts, besides the Fear & Greed Index to assess future projections.

Solana’s price, market Cap, and other metrics

After an extremely successful performance last year, the cryptocurrency market began tumbling in 2022. From around $178 in early January, SOL’s price fell to as low as below $80 in mid-March. In early April, it breached the $135-mark before again continuing to fall lower and lower. At press time, SOL was trading at just under $47, with the same underlining a fall of around 70% in 7 months.

By the end of 2020, the market cap of Solana was only a little over $70 million. 2021 proved to be a dream run for the currency as its market cap continued to soar higher and higher, climbing as high as $77.99 billion on 6 November. When 2022 began, its market cap was $55.19 billion, following which it hit a low of $25.49 billion on 13 March.

Market conditions got better in April, briefly, before it plummeted yet again. 

Messari’s James Trautman recently published a report that analyzed the state of Solana in the second quarter of 2022. With volatility prevalent across metrics in Q1, Solana completely crashed, in line with all the other cryptocurrencies in Q2. The macroeconomic conditions worsened for the industry as tighter regulations kept coming into place and we witnessed the $60 billion collapse of terraUSD and LUNA.

Revenue decreased by 44.4% due to bad network performance, and average transaction fees, in turn, decreased by 40.6%. In Q2, its P/S ratio was 847x. In comparison to Q1, its TVL also decreased by around 68%, similar to a ~70% fall in TVL across all the top 10 DeFi protocols.

The report also mentioned that Solana is one of the leading blockchains when it comes to NFT transactions. Currently, it is home to Solanart, Metaplex, and Magic Eden, among several other NFT marketplaces. Therefore, a rise in this asset class could conversely affect the price and volume of its native cryptocurrency as well.

Solana Price Prediction 2025

We must understand that experts’ predictions vary a lot. Each analyst weighs upon a specific set of factors to forecast the market and different currency metrics. These analysts study the previous market trends as well as future speculations and then arrive at their predictions. It is therefore self-evident that market predictions significantly vary. Even then, unexpected technological and economic changes keep interrupting the market wildly, thereby influencing currency metrics. 

Let us now look at what different crypto analysts have to say about Solana’s future in 2025. 

A Changelly blogpost claimed that the maximum and minimum prices of Solana in 2025 will be $213.55 and $174.43, respectively. On average, it will trade at around $179.57 in 2025, it added, with SOL’s potential ROI predicted to be 441%.

Finder’s panel of experts also had some predictions to make. According to the panel, SOL can be expected to hit the $166-mark by 2025. It’s worth pointing out here that these predictions were made just last month. On the contrary, the panel’s January 2022 predictions claimed SOL will go as high as $486 in 2025.
