Solana (SOL) Has Overtaken Binance Coin (BNB) By Market Cap

  • Solana (SOL) has overtaken Binance Coin (BNB) by market cap, reaching a $49.7 billion market cap and becoming the 4th largest crypto.
  • Despite challenges like network outages and centralization concerns, Solana’s rise reflects growing investor confidence.
  • BNB makes a comeback, reclaiming 4th position as its market cap and trading volume surge amid bullish market trends.

The market capitalization of Solana (SOL) emerged above that of Binance Coin (BNB), reaching $49.7 billion to substitute the latter to become the third largest cryptocurrency on Feb 13. 



This achievement, however, has not only led to the Solana which currently ranks fourth in this sphere directly behind Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Tether (USDT) but also generated debates on the causes of such a rapid price spike and the consequences for the entire digital assets market as a whole.

The cryptocurrency market as a whole showed positive movement and was accompanied by noteworthy achievements in all the major coins. 

However, market optimism has been one of the factors that massively contributed to the market prosperity of Solana. 

SOL is trading at $113.66 with an 8.1% increase, while BNB is currently worth $326.01. 

Solana has shown 54% growth in the last 24 hours, as its 24-hour trading volume on DEXs has reached $795 million.

However, Solana’s journey has encountered hurdles. The network has faced criticism over occasional outages and concerns regarding centralization due to its delegated Proof-of-Stake (dPoS) consensus mechanism. 

These issues raise questions about its long-term stability and decentralization, critical factors for maintaining investor trust and ensuring sustainable growth.

Despite these challenges, Solana’s recent surge underscores its growing influence and potential within the crypto ecosystem. 

Its ability to address these concerns and continue innovating will be pivotal in positioning itself as a leading blockchain platform.

Although BNB was a bit downcast, it has recovered and is holding the fourth position. 

The BNB price, also thanks to the bullish grip, rose by 0.79%, and the market capitalization reached $48,267,558,480. 

Notably, the 24-hour trading volume also jumped by 45% to $1,077,791,340, which, in turn, indicates an increased confidence level in the investors.
