The 4-hour Solana price chart shows us that SOL had surged to $323.65 before pushing up further to $243.47. SOL was able to stay at this level for the next few sessions before the price turned bearish and dropped to $233.43, where the 20-bar SMA was acting as support. As a result, the price recovered and pushed up to $258.67 before dropping to $247.23. After reaching this level, SOL dropped further, slipping below the 20-bar SMA and dropping to $243.90. The price fell further from this level, as it dropped to its current level of $240. With the Parabolic SAR and MACD both bearish, we can expect the price to drop further.
Solana Adding Millions of Users Via Brave Browser
Privacy-oriented browser Brave has inked a partnership with Solana Labs, according to a recent announcement. As part of the deal, Solana will become Brave’s default blockchain during the first half of 2022.
Messari’s Ryan Watkins has noted that the high-throughput blockchain could potentially on-board 42 monthly million:
"Solana coming to 42 million monthly active users soon, as Brave's default blockchain."
In turn, Solana developers will be encouraged to support the browser’s Basic Attention Token (BAT) with their dApps. Brave CEO Brendan Eich hopes that the integration will make it easier to bolster cryptocurrency adoption:
"With more and more users and creators requiring tools for fast and affordable access to the decentralized Web, this integration will seamlessly pave the way for the next billion crypto users to harness applications and tokens."
Last year, Brave appeared in hot water, facing the affiliate link controversy. This October, the browser dropped Google and replaced it with Brave Search, its search engine that was launched in June.
Solana Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Looking at the Solana price chart, we see that SOL has been quite bearish since the weekend. With SOL already down to $240, we can expect the price to slip below $240 if the current sentiment persists.
