Solana (SOL) has been one of the highest-performing cryptos recently. A tremendous run saw the asset go from relative obscurity to debuting on the top 10 for the first time. Kicking out Binance coin BNB in the process. But the digital asset did not stop there. Last week, on the back of another massive run that saw the price set a new all-time high, Solana beat out community favorite Dogecoin to clench the 7th position on the top 10 charts. All of this, it achieved in the space of a week.
Even now, the digital asset has seen increasing success in the market. Currently trading above its previous all-time high of $143 that it had hit on Friday. Its growing popularity has brought in a lot of new investors to the asset. FTX CEO and co-founder Sam Bankman-Fried is one of the most prominent names in its list of backers. With the CEO showing support for the asset.
Now, American pop star Jason Derulo has announced his holdings in Solana (SOL). But according to the singer, he had actually invested in the coin back in June when the project was not as popular as it is now. The pop star tweeted this to his 3.7 million followers on Twitter.
