Mike Tyson asks how high Solana’s price will go
One of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, Mike Tyson has been active in the crypto space. After announcing last week that he was “all in” on the Solana (SOL) cryptocurrency, he now asks his 5.7 million Twitter followers how high they think the crypto’s price will go. He tweeted on Saturday: “How high do you think Sol will go?”
While his tweet has garnered 2.4k comments at the time of writing, no one has given him any serious price analysis for Solana.
Nicknamed “Iron Mike” and “Kid Dynamite” in his early career, Tyson is later known as “The Baddest Man on the Planet”.
Last week, he tweeted that he was “all in on Solana,” adding that he “just bagged a Catalina whale.” His tweet included an image of a non-fungible token (NFT) from the Catalina Whale Mixer collection.
Iron Mike also has his own NFT collection at Opensea, which launched last August in collaboration with artist Cory Van Lew. “The Mike Tyson NFT Collection is a limited series of NFTs celebrating the iconic life and legacy of the worst man on the planet, Mike Tyson,” reads the collection’s description.
Tyson further tweeted about NFTs last week: “Since I’ve been on NFTs I’ve been looking for crypto partnerships and DREAM really stood out. It is the first of its kind that can only be traded during US trading hours. Could revolutionize space and help the mental health of the crypto community.”
Before joining Solana, Iron Mike asked his fans on Twitter which cryptocurrency they would recommend. In June of last year, he weighed between bitcoin and ether. He tweeted, “Which do you prefer, BTC or ETH?” Then he tried to choose between Solana and Ether. In September, he tweeted, “Solana or Ethereum?”
Solana is currently the fifth largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of approximately $47 billion based on data from Bitcoin.com Markets. The coin is trading at $149.84. The cryptocurrency has gained 4,495% over the past year but has fallen more than 15% over the past month.
Last week, Bank of America released an upbeat report on Solana, claiming that SOL could take market share from Ethereum and become the visa of the digital asset ecosystem.
