🏇 Solana vs. Ethereum
👌Selected Meme of The Day
Time to take a sip of that Wednesday Bubble Tea.
While it's not exactly surging, XRP is exhibiting relative confidence, remaining in the green zone!
This is thanks to the fact that a judge has rejected the SEC’s attempt to appeal a court decision stating that XRP's secondary sales were not securities offerings.
Solana is the one really surging over here!
Regarding Solana and its updates, the following events have recently transpired:
The Solana network has demonstrated secure operations across multiple clients, enhancing its decentralization.
The network has been operating consistently without interruptions since February. This represents a notable improvement in stability and reliability compared to its past, where Solana experienced several periods of downtime and we were mentioning it a loot in 2022.
“Ethereum presents itself not as a harbinger of genuine revolution, but merely as a novel spectacle of bourgeois upheaval.”
According to him, it is not the system that will make genuine decentralization into reality.
On the "X" social media platform, crypto bros reminded Yakovenko that Solana is also far from mass user adoption. Allegedly, only those with substantial resources can run a network node.
However, Yakovenko dismissed this assertion, stating that one simply needs to be sufficiently tech-savvy, and a standard laptop will suffice.
Oh, the sassiness!
SOLANA VS. ETHEREUM
The confrontation has flared up anew after Rune Christensen, head of the MakerDAO organization, mentioned the project’s migration in early September 2023. He opted for Solana.
Subsequent to this, Vitalik Buterin sold his stake in MakerDAO. While he did not openly criticize the network, he mentioned that the departure of “terrible opportunists with money” was beneficial to it.
By the way, in October 2023, Solana's TVL (Total Value Locked) reached its annual peak, indicating that the network has gradually recovered since those times... when everything plummeted following the bankruptcy of FTX, with which the network had been closely tied due to investments from ALAMEDA & FTX.
Intriguingly, Jump Trading has recently disclosed a substantial financial setback, revealing a loss of over 200 million dollars in the aftermath of the FTX crash.
Remarkably, the company only unveiled these figures nearly a year after the exchange’s collapse, shedding new light on the economic repercussions of that tumultuous period.
TL;DR: XRP is holding steady with increased confidence after a judge rejected the SEC's appeal, confirming that XRP's secondary sales are not considered securities offerings. On the other hand, Solana is experiencing a significant surge in value, with improved network stability and notable adoption as it competes with Ethereum, attracting attention from key figures in the crypto space and reaching its annual peak in Total Value Locked (TVL).
