According to some crypto enthusiasts, Solana has always found a way to capture the market’s attention through non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in 2021 and memecoins in 2024.

Can Solana Memecoins Rally Asset? 

The current price of SOL is far off from its all-time high in the short term because interest rates remain unchanged. Crypto bulls have pointed to Solana memecoins craze and a potential cut in rates by the Federal Reserve as factors that could lift to asset to a new resistance level.

Solana memecoins are up 6.4% in the last 24 hours with its market cap above $7.5 billion. A key factor driving bullish projections is the inflow of new tokens posting 50X gains in daily trading. Rate cuts will add to the values of memecoins as investors will move funds to risky assets.
