Solana will beat Ethereum in some respects by 2024, according to VanEck

A financial company draws a positive forecast for one of the largest cryptocurrency projects

The recent BTC price rally has sparked new enthusiasm in the world of digital currencies, and with it, increased interest in other cryptocurrencies. According to the forecasts of a widely recognized asset management company - VanEck - Solana (SOL) has a good chance of achieving noticeably better results than Ethereum (ETH) by 2024.

Can Solana beat Ethereum?

The spectacular increase in value by as much as 212% in just the last 60 days has resulted in Solana's share on the cryptocurrency market significantly increasing. Digital currency analysts also expect Solana's price oracle platform, Pyth, to likely overtake Chainlink in terms of total value secured (TVS) soon. It is worth adding here that despite Chainlink's current market dominance, analysts deeply believe that the innovative system architecture will make Pyth ultimately defeat its most serious rival.

It is worth noting that Solana is currently trading at an average price of $73 per coin, and its price has increased by over 11% in just the last 24 hours. Moreover, there was also an additional increase in 24-hour trading volume to levels exceeding even USD 4.1 billion.

Financial firm VanEck additionally forecasts that Ethereum will likely not reach a higher market capitalization than Bitcoin (BTC) until 2024. While Ethereum is likely to outperform other major tech stocks, Bitcoin's regulatory transparency and scale of energy efficiency are widely expected to attract interest from state-owned entities in Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Despite Ethereum's very decent results, according to the most common forecasts, it will probably lose market share to other smart contract platforms, such as Solana, whose main competitive advantage is that it can boast a much more reliable scalability schedule. Finally, it is impossible not to mention that Argentina is expected to join the countries sponsoring BTC mining at the state level. This would mean that Argentina would follow in the footsteps of countries such as the United Arab Emirates, El Salvador, Bhutan and Oman.
