Solana (SOL) has been one of the most recent success stories in the cryptocurrency market, rising more than 700% between January 2023 and January 2024. However, a recent pullback has paved the way for a new breakout star with similar or better potential.Retik Finance (RETIK) is a fairly new decentralised finance (DeFi) platform that analysts say will push DeFi boundaries. Retik Finance (RETIK) introduces a suite of DeFi products, including DeFi debit cards, a blockchain-based payment solution, and AI-powered lending, to bridge the gap between traditional and digital finance. As a result, recent demand flowing to the platform suggests that the token is on track for a rally that could dwarf Solana in 2024.
Solana explodes 928.33% in 2023
Solana (SOL) rose throughout the 2021 bull market, reaching an all-time high of $259.52 on November 6, 2021. A little over a year later, SOL fell by over 90% to a cycle low of $8. The two main contributors to this drop were a wider market selloff and the weakened investor confidence Solana experienced following the collapse of FTX, a major SOL backer, near the end of 2022.In 2023, the crypto coin shook off the FTX dust and recovered significantly. By the end of the year, Solana had rebounded from $8 to trade north of $100. Several factors contributed to this growth, including a clearer regulatory framework that restored trust in risky assets and ecosystem airdrops that rewarded and incentivized engagement within the Solana ecosystem.Solana has dropped to around $85 at the time of writing. Despite the pullback, the cryptocurrency still has enormous long-term potential.
Retik Finance (RETIK) overtakes Solana to lead the 2024 rally
While Solana takes a breather, Retik Finance (RETIK) has emerged as a much-needed successor to lead the 2024 bull run. Retik Finance has seen increased whale attention in the past few weeks, which could suggest an imminent bullish breakout.Retik Finance is an Ethereum-based DeFi protocol that seeks to bridge the digital and traditional finance divides.

Remarkable Presale performance
Retik Finance (RETIK) launched its presale campaign in December 2023. This followed the team’s decision to forego VC funding and launch the project through a decentralised token sale, per the DeFi sector ethos. The presale has been a success, capturing the attention of both crypto enthusiasts and experts worldwide. It is currently in stage seven, with only three more to go. The first six stages sold out in under a month, raising over $12 million. Each stage sold out faster than anticipated, with stage one attracting investors at a mere $0.03 per RETIK token. The price has steadily increased throughout the presale, reaching $0.09 in stage seven. This growth signifies growing confidence and demand for the project.Following the presale, Retik Finance will list on at least three top-tier exchanges. This will open the RETIK token to a larger pool of investors and traders, increasing its visibility and accessibility. With a larger user base, the trading volume will increase, resulting in better liquidity, tighter spreads, and improved profits. This will make it easier for users to purchase and sell the token, increasing market activity and potentially driving up prices. Now is the best time to buy the token before the wider market catches on. Market analysts predict at least 100x returns for presale backers.
