Solana ecosystem is facing many difficulties when facing constant challenges from many sides. Let’s review the hottest events of the past week with Solana daily.
1. Market Data
Solana Solend Whale Has Been Liquidated
The whale that made Solend stand sculpting over 2 months ago has been officially set at SOL $21.
This is extremely bad when this whale wallet owns a large amount of SOL, causing the price of SOL to drop immediately after that.
This combined with the collapse of FTX inadvertently put the Solana ecosystem into a huge challenge.
The validators have continuously unstake their SOL, currently the value has reached more than 50 million USD, this amount of SOL after unstake is likely to be sold off to preserve capital.
2. Solana Network
Neon EVM will go live on mainnet on 12/12/2022
Neon EVM is the first and only EVM on Solana, and it will have a profound impact on both the Ethereum and Solana ecosystems.
For Ethereum projects aiming to expand into new ecosystems, differing programming languages are no longer a concern.
Developers familiar with Solidity, Vyper, and the existing Ethereum smart contract languages can now use Neon EVM to deploy on Solana.

Circle Issues $EUROC On Solana
On stage at Solana Breakpoint, Circle, a global digital financial technology firm and the issuer of USD Coin (USDC) and Euro Coin, announced plans to expand native support of Euro Coin and access to their new permissionless cross-chain infrastructure, Cross-Chain Transfer Protocol, on Solana in the first half of 2023.
A regulated, euro-backed stablecoin, Euro Coin is issued under the same full-reserve model and built on the same pillars of trust, transparency, and security that have made USDC one of the world’s most widely-used dollar digital currencies with over $42 billion in circulation as of November 4, 2022.
Together, Euro Coin and USDC aim to bring faster, inexpensive transactions to global commerce and unlock new opportunities for multi-currency digital finance and on-chain foreign exchange (FX), where daily volume in traditional markets can top $6.6 trillion globally.
