Michael Gerard Tyson, a former professional boxer from the United States, has lately entered the crypto-verse. He has indicated recently that he is now “all in on Solana”.
When he turned to Twitter on January 16 to debate SOL’s pricing, many of his fans were not thrilled with his promotion. While some believed he was attempting to “push” the project, others said SOL was just too “expensive.”
One of his follower mockingly commented that how much money the boxer had put into the Solana Project that he’s desperate to pump it. He also claimed that Sol is overpriced.
SOL was trading at $150.5 at the time of writing, up over 5% from the previous week. This followed a 15-week low on January 10th. It’s worth noting, though, that Solana only made it into the top five cryptocurrencies by market cap in the fourth quarter of 2021.
According to CoinGecko, it was one of the few tokens to have a price increase of over 10,000 percent, among names like Fantom, Terra, and Polygon.
Mike Tyson Into NFT World
“Ever since I got into NFTs, I’ve been looking for crypto collaborations, and DREAM really jumped out,” Tyson tweeted last week about NFTs. It’s the first of its type, and it can only be exchanged during regular stock market hours in the United States. Could enhance the crypto community’s mental health and transform the space.”
Iron Mike polled his Twitter followers to see which cryptocurrency they preferred before diving into solana. He was debating between bitcoin and ether in June of last year. “Which do you prefer, BTC or ETH?” he tweeted. He then had to make a decision between solana and ether. “Solana or Ethereum?” he tweeted in September.
According to data from CoinMarketCap, Solana is the seventh-largest cryptocurrency, having a market valuation of over $47 billion. The price of the coin is at $149.84. The cryptocurrency has gained 4,495 percent in the last year, but has lost nearly 15% in the last month.
