Solana (SOL) has witnessed a remarkable rally in the past week, showing a series of steady gains. Currently, SOL is up 10% and is actively trading at $21.80, reflecting a slight rally in the price of cryptocurrencies.
While it is important to note that the SOL remains significantly off its all-time high of $260, the recent move higher has pushed its value past the $20 mark, indicating promising signs of prolonged bullish sentiment.

Additionally, Solana has had some success in adoption with some ecosystems adopting the token and launching cross-chain bridges.

However, the most likely factor is the increase in DEX volume recorded this week. Blockchain analytics platform DefiLlama revealed in a report earlier in the week that Solana had experienced a spike in DEX volume. According to the report, SOL’s DEX volume increased by more than 80% and ranks fifth in the cryptocurrency market. This development has likely boosted its price action in the past week.
However, Total Value Locked (TVL) has not reacted to this uptrend and has been stagnant since its fall last November after the FTX collapse. TVL currently sits at around $275 million with no notable increase in value despite SOL gains in recent days.

A break above the $22.50 resistance level will help propel its price to recapture the $25 psychological resistance level.

However, a price drop below $20 is still possible in the short term due to bearish outside market conditions.
