The Co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko of Solana token also opened up at the Conference, stating:
“In realistic terms, Solan is about four times slower than what it should be. The speed of light halfway around the world is about 110 milliseconds. Of Course, it is going to take a lot of sweat and blood and tears to get there. In theory that all could be the limit of how fast the network can work.”
According to the reports, Solana was indeed the most highly volatile than ever from Sept at 87.8%. Majorly a spike in the volatility is perhaps suggestive on an SOL price rail.
