Crypto influencer and content creator Ben Armstrong took to X on Dec.23 and stated that, “I thought Solana was going to die. It didn’t. And now it is VERY MUCH alive. This is going to be a pivotal week in the Solana ecosystem and narrative. Price speculation is great. But now is when the deeper narrative begins.”
He added today that, “VCs are giving $SOL the vote of confidence with their investments. While there will be pullbacks, look for Solana to be one of the top 5 coins in the top 100 for gains.”
