Solana’s (SOL) total value locked (TVL) has surged to a new 2023 high of $338.82 million today, sparking speculation within the crypto community about the reasons behind why this might be the case.
“Oh now you all suddenly like $SOL…” market analyst Ran Neuner shared to his 721,800 followers on X (formerly Twitter).
Solana’s TVL Witnesses Substantial Year-to-Date Growth
On October 2, SOL’s TVL experienced a 24-hour increase of around 4.15%, surging from $324.64 million to $338.82 million.
Since the beginning of 2023, it has seen a substantial increase of approximately 38%, rising from $210.47 million on January 1st.
However, a little more than a year ago, reports surfaced indicating a sharp decline in SOL’s TVL.
In May 2022, BeInCrypto reported that SOL had lost 60% in TVL since the first day of 2022. On the first day of 2022, Solana had a TVL of approximately $11.22 billion, falling to around $4.38 billion on May 15.
Meanwhile, there are concerns about how SOL’s price could react given FTX estate has been granted approval to liquidate their crypto holdings. The estate holds approximately $1.2 billion worth of SOL.
