Solana Records New Monthly User High Amidst Persistent Price Drop

Solana (SOL) has had a turbulent time lately evident with a consistent decline in its market price. According to data from CoinMarketCap, the “Ethereum Killer” is down by 6.36% on its weekly chart, emerging as the biggest loser among the top 10 tokens.

Solana Records All-Time High Of 30 Million Monthly Users

In an enthralling development for SOL enthusiasts, data from blockchain analytics platform Artemis shows the network has attained a new peak of 30 million active addresses (users). This development was shared on X on Friday by the data analysis handle SolanaFloor.


After reaching the 25 million mark in 2022, the  Solana blockchain experienced a steep decline in monthly active users going as low as 5 million in 2023. However, the smart contract platform has appeared rather attractive in 2024 with a steady rise in monthly users throughout the year so far. 

In the crypto ecosystem, the importance of growth in network users stems mainly from an indication of growing market confidence from investors, which is quite vital considering SOL’s current price dip.  For the fifth largest cryptocurrency, this rise in the active addresses is likely due to the current hype around Solana meme coins – a $5.65 billion ecosystem that has provided investors with an avenue of recording insane trading profits. 

In addition, an increase in network users can also translate into larger liquidity, more stable network security, and the development of more use cases, all of which are important features in attracting further investment and boosting a token’s value.
