However, the trend began to turn positive after the West, led by the United States and the United Kingdom, imposed sanctions that are capable of crippling Russia’s economy. The news aided Bitcoin to return above $39,000 from around $35,000 in quick succession. The trend has been positive ever since.

SOL, the native token of Solana, an open-source cryptographic project implementing a new and high-performance permissionless blockchain, has also joined the rest of other top cryptocurrencies to soar.

Solana has now surged above the $100 resistance level. At the time of filing this report, SOL is trading at $102.12, with a relatively 6% price upsurge in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
