As for $SOL’s performance vs $BTC, since June 13, SOL-BTC is up nearly 77% (from 0.0011110 to 0.0019634).

A few hours later, another pseudonymous analyst/trader — |Crypto Rand” — told his over 288K Twitter followers that his technical analysis of SOL-USDT says that $80 is the next target for $SOL, which agrees with what “DonAlt” said yesterday:
