ChatGPT predicts a wild rally for Solana in Q3 2023, but here’s the catch – AMBCrypto News

I ask ChatGPT if Solana, dubbed the “Ethereum killer,” can defy the bearish market trend and rally to the moon.

Despite all the turbulence Solana [SOL] witnessed over the past six months, it remains a top-10 asset by market cap in the crypto sphere. This speaks volumes of investors’ and holders’ trust in Solana, dubbed the “Ethereum [ETH] killer” by some of its more ardent users. Even Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin is an admirer of the protocol.
When the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission’s (SEC) filed lawsuits Binance [BNB] and Coinbase [COIN] in early June, it labeled several altcoins, including SOL, as securities. Recently, even Buterin rued the manner in which the regulator is targeting projects like Solana.
Heading into 2023, SOL was hovering around the $10 support zone. It was already in the grips of a downtrend that stretched back to November 2021, back when SOL was trading at $200. Just as investors began anticipating further losses across the crypto-market in January, Bitcoin [BTC] climbed past $17k and shifted the shorter-term sentiment to bullish.

Solana benefited massively from this shift and recorded gains of 175% in 21 days. However, it could not breach the $26-$28 resistance zone, which has acted as support since June-November 2022.

Meanwhile, the on-chain analytics firm Messari published a report analyzing the degree of decentralization among different chains. Proof-of-stake (PoS) network Solana, with an aggregate Nakamoto coefficient of 1.9, seemed to have outperformed its peers.

The most bullish scenario of 2023, according to AMBCrypto’s prediction bot, could see SOL valued at $75.5. However, we can ask another bot for its take on the price, the network health, and the trajectory of Solana after giving it some relevant data points.
ChatGPT has been a remarkable chatbot and the updates of the past month have made ChatGPT 4.0 quite impressive. It is a powerful tool for learning, well-trained on a vast array of topics. Yet, we must remember that the bot is engineered to mimic a human, and is not necessarily guaranteed to be factually accurate. The jailbreak version of ChatGPT would likely be even more inaccurate, as it is specifically instructed to not say no to anything the user requests.
And yet, it is possible to obtain some guesses from the chatbot on what the future might hold if we provide it with details about recent price movements.
So, what does ChatGPT make of Solana? Does it see a route to recovery after its recent setbacks? Based on transaction fees and transaction speeds, ChatGPT seems to think Solana will be an Ethereum killer.

We are yet to inform it of the challenges that Solana and SOL investors have faced in recent months. Let’s start with the biggest dent in investor confidence –
Sam Bankman-Fried was one of the most vocal proponents of the Solana network. The community looked at him as a credible and smart entrepreneur who was the CEO of one of the largest crypto exchanges, FTX. Even though Binance reigned supreme in terms of volume and token pairs, FTX was giving it a run for its money. Competition is also good for the industry and serves the customers.
A lot has changed since then, and the SEC has charged Mr. Bankman-Fried with defrauding the equity investors of FTX, further alleging that he commingled FTX customer funds with Alameda’s to make undisclosed venture investments. He faces over 100 years in jail if convicted on all counts.
Not only has the reputation of Solana taken a hit, but the foundation also sold a significant amount of SOL to FTX Trading and Alameda Research. This amounted to 58.08 million SOL, or 11% of the circulating supply at the time FTX filed for bankruptcy. It was valued at close to $1.1 billion at the time.
As expected, the price of Solana nosedived in November and declined by 45% from November 11 to 31 December, falling from $18.08 to $8. With rumors of FTX’s insolvency circulating from November 5, SOL had already lost 50% the previous week, when it had been trading near the $38 mark. This took SOL’s total losses from 5 November 2022 to 31 December 2022 to 79.4%.

ChatGPT certainly sounds optimistic, and early 2023 went extraordinarily well for investors. And yet, some network issues cropped up, just as they had in 2022.
From 1 January to 20 February, Solana gained 179.88% on the price charts and rallied from $9.69 to $27.12. This explosive rally has been credited partially to Bonk; a meme coin introduced within the Solana ecosystem modeled after Shiba Inu.
A part of the total 99 trillion supply was airdropped into the wallets of Solana users in December. The transaction count per day had been on a downtrend in the second half of December, but this turned around in early January.

Soon enough, the transactions were picking up pace once more. The introduction of the fun meme coin did much to bring the community away from the dark, depressing shadow the FTX debacle had cast on Solana.
When fed with on-chain data and price action in recent months, the jailbroken version of ChatGPT mustered up an opinion on the performance of Solana in Q3 2023.

The network has faced troublesome outages in recent months, and it might hurt investor confidence. The chat bot agreed.

Predictions aside, what does price analysis tell us about Solana?
Source: SOL/USD, TradingView
At press time, SOL was trading at $18.48, an appreciation of over 10% within a week. Its value has dipped nearly 20% since the SEC’s enforcement action against Coinbase and Binance. 
While the movements of SOL’s price and On Balance Volume (OBV) remain shaky, its Relative Strength Index (RSI) showed an upward trend. But again, its Money Flow Index (MFI) rested much below the neutral 50-level.
We cannot predict a very bright future for Solana in the short run.
Even as ChatGPT predicts SOL’s price to rally to the range of $300-$500 during the third quarter of this year, its on-chart metrics paint a wildly different picture. It is therefore critical that traders do their own research before investing in a crypto asset.
