Of late, the market sentiment has been a positive for Solana. That said, how does if fare against its closest competitors – ETH and ADA. Is it undervalued? What’s the real-life significance for the rise in its social volume and dominance?
Consider a few of the community viewpoints on this Geneva-based blockchain. One of the partners at Spartan Group, a crypto asset management firm, expressed his optimism in a tweet, predicting a bull run for the token.

The aforementioned tweet compares SOL with Cardano’s native token, ADA, the 3rd largest coin. The latter is predicted to surge to another ATH following the September 12th activation of the Alonzo hard fork on the Cardano mainnet. Using this sentiment, SOL comes off as highly “undervalued” compared to one of its closest competitors. Meanwhile, a projection of 3X would take the token as high as $390.
Moving on, another SOL supporter compared it to the largest altcoin as well. This comparison plays well into to the whole “undervalued” sentiment.

6% relative value…? seems pretty pretty lowww.

Despite SOL possessing only a small fraction of ETH’s market cap, SOL looks undervalued even at its current price levels. In addition to this, SOL has been doing well in its ecosystem as well.
