Michael van de Poppe is predicting how high one Ethereum (ETH) competitor will go?
In a recent strategy session, Van de Poppe explains how layer-1 smart contract platform Solana (SOL) is exploiting some of Ethereum‘s limitations, such as its high transaction costs.
The crypto strategist thinks the overall crypto markets are looking bullish headed into 2022 and if Solana can successfully break above the $193 region, then the altcoin will blast past previous all-time highs.
“The two levels that I’m personally watching are $410 and $650 in the first few runs.
But imagine that we’re getting an extensive bull market in which Bitcoin is going to make a big run, and the entire cryptocurrency market cap is going make a big run.
We might be seeing an exceeding run for Solana here as well in which we make this run, have another correction, and then we start running one more time before the entire bull market is over, resulting in to a run that might be bringing us towards… let’s say we can even hit $1,000 or $1,500, and then we’re getting to the end of this bull cycle.”
Upside Price Prediction
Van de Poppe concludes his upside price prediction by saying that while he believes $600 SOL is possible during the current run, the broader crypto markets would need to achieve a 5x before SOL reaches the $1,000 price tag.
At time of writing, Solana is down 3.42% for the day to $190.48. The fifth-ranked crypto asset has gone ballistic this year, ripping from $1.52 all the way to a November high of $258.63 before correcting to its current price.
Regarding the SOL/BTC trading pair, the analyst says,
“Looking at a price prediction, I think that if the market is going to expand itself towards $10 to $15 trillion, another 5x on Solana should be quite normal as well, as that is just the average of the entire market.
But if we are looking at a Fibonacci extension, we could be seeing ourselves running towards 0.0071 BTC ($352.62), or potentially even 0.012 BTC ($595.97).”
