Solana has resurfaced stronger from FTX's collapse, settling fears that the blockchain would face the same fate as the exchange.
Development activity on Solana has reportedly increased, showing that deveopers are remaining loyal to the blockchain, which has a developer community second only to Ethereum's.
Daily active wallets are three times higher than before FTX collapsed, as SOL continues to recover from its downward spiral following revelations about the exchange. Furthermore, Solana's funding rate on Binance has also incerased.
Over the past 24 hours, SOL's price has surged over 21% to $16.52 and is up more than 60% over the past seven days. The "Ethereum killer" has been riding high since the Shiba Inu rival BONK coin was launched by Solana developers.
BONK was aidropped to Solana developers and NFT collectors last week, and its price soared close to 1200% in one week. The memecoin has been hyped for introducing "burn" mechanisms for NFT-based events and as a use of payment.
It’s a new year, maybe we should integrate some new cryptocurrencies or chains— Magic Eden 🪄 (@MagicEden) January 2, 2023
Should we start with $BONK? Idk
Solana bulls have predictably taken to the news positively. "I’m only happy when things on solana are happening too fast for me to keep track. then I know entropy and organic evolution are happening at the right pace, unbounded, like the early internet. feels like that right now," tweeted one Solana optimist.
"Bullish on Solana, Bullish on NFTs. Bullish on our multichain future, Here we come Poly n' ETH -good night," wrote another.

Indeed, the future looks bright for Solana. With BONK stealing headlines, developers amping up building and demonstrating loyalty, and Solana's mobile device around the corner, SBF pain appears to be over.
