Solana has performed exceptionally well in recent months. A bullish momentum that has even earned it the label of “Ethereum killer”. However, according to maximalist Max Keiser, SOL, Solana’s native cryptocurrency, could experience a resounding fall. Here’s precisely what’s being said.

The crypto firm Solana may pay dearly for its involvement in venture capital

Maximalist Max Keiser recently issued a stern warning regarding Solana and its native cryptocurrency (SOL). According to him, the price of the coin, which has garnered attention for its recent performance, is exposed to a downside risk.

These ominous projections come at a time when the price of SOL cryptocurrency has recently dropped. A situation that prompted Max Keiser to declare the end of the asset’s bullish run suggesting that key players might cash in on their gains.

Fundamentally, the reasons for this projection stem from a wave of skepticism within the Bitcoin community regarding crypto projects like Solana. They are criticized for their heavy involvement in venture capital and their perceived centralization.

More broadly, Max Keiser’s perception aligns with concerns expressed by Bitcoin enthusiasts, the flagship crypto. Looking at the rapid growth of some altcoins like Solana, they warn individual investors against a risk. One that the maximalist calls “someone else’s exit scam”. But this does not seem to be true.

A warning to be taken with a grain of salt?

One can understand the warnings of a maximalist like Max Keiser who has described the market movements of Solana as “a drop in the bucket”. However, this comment does not seem entirely accurate.

Traditionally, this term implies malicious intent on the part of the developers or insiders. This characterization, it seems, which is not applicable to Solana for several reasons.

Firstly, the current correction that Max Keiser bases his warning on seems more a part of the natural ebb and flow of crypto market cycles. These are marked by periods of rapid expansion followed by phases of consolidation.

Market corrections are normal after substantial increases. Profit-taking observed among large investors is also typical market behavior rather than a reflection of flaws inherent to the project’s fundamentals. Thus, despite its recent setback, the solid technological foundation of Solana and its continued success in the market indicate that it is far from collapsing.
