Hugo Villeon, CEO of Flare, sheds light on the ongoing discourse between Solana and XRP. Villeon acknowledges Solana’s impressive recovery from technical and financial setbacks, especially those related to the FTX collapse.
He emphasizes the hard work being done in the cryptocurrency space, including efforts to enhance the utility of non-fungible tokens such as BTC and XRP.
Solana’s remarkable comeback faced significant challenges after the November 2022 FTX collapse. FTX, a major investor in Solana, greatly impacted the platform’s financial stability and reputation.
At the peak of the crisis, Solana’s decentralized finance protocols saw a slight decrease of over $200 million, and its native token, SOL, plummeted below $10.
The FTX collapse, coupled with the misuse of customer deposits, severely tarnished Solana’s image and financial standing.
Despite these setbacks, Solana has shown remarkable resilience. Its market capitalization now exceeds that of XRP.
This surge is partially attributed to the popularity of digital currencies like Bonk, which experienced a market cap increase.
Additionally, Solana has regained its position in decentralized exchange (DEX) trading, surpassing Ethereum with a 24-hour trading volume of $1.26 billion.
The total value locked on the Solana platform has also surpassed $1.2 billion.
