In a remarkable turn of events, Solana (SOL) has surged 18% in the past 24 hours, propelling the cryptocurrency to the fourth position in market capitalization. This marks the first time SOL has held this spot in over two years, surpassing Binance Chain’s BNB. The latest surge has elevated Solana’s market cap to $41.9 billion, surpassing BNB’s $41.8 billion. SOL is presently valued at $98.40, showcasing an impressive 18% gain in a single day.

Solana’s Spectacular Week

Solana’s surge isn’t limited to a day; it has witnessed a remarkable 30% gain over the past week, outperforming other major cryptocurrencies. Despite being hailed as an “ETH killer,” Solana still has ground to cover to match Ethereum’s towering market cap of $269 billion.

A Year of Resurgence for Solana

Revisiting its glory from November 2021, Solana had previously occupied the fourth position during the peak of the bull market with a market cap of $75 billion, trailing behind BNB at $108 billion. However, the landscape changed, and Solana closed 2022 at just below $10. A year later, SOL has staged an impressive comeback, surging to almost $100 and establishing itself as one of the top-performing assets of the year.
