With a double-digit price spike, Solana (SOL) surpasses Cardano (ADA) in market share

Solana (SOL) sets remarkable pace in crypto market with 29.4% price surge in just week, dwarfing Cardano's 4.1% uptick

Solana (SOL) has witnessed a significant double-digit price increase, outpacing Cardano (ADA) and establishing itself as a formidable contender.

Currently priced at $28.40, Solana experienced a 29.4% rise over the past seven days, while Cardano's price edged up just 4.1% to $0.25.

Solana's market cap stands at nearly $11.9 billion, which puts it in eighth place by market capitalization, according to CoinGecko's rankings. Cardano, which is currently valued at $9 billion, currently stands at ninth place.

In addition, Solana's recent rally was not just limited to overshadowing Cardano. In the past week, Solana outstripped every other cryptocurrency in the top 10, including XRP, even though the latter was riding high on Ripple's recent legal victories.
