Mike Tyson: How high will the Solana price go?

Mike Tyson is a great heavyweight boxer and has become active in crypto. After announcing last week that he is “all in” on the cryptocurrency solana (SOL), he is now asking his 5.7 million Twitter followers how high they think the price of the crypto will go. He tweeted Saturday, “How high do you think Sol will go?”

His tweet received over 2.4K responses at the time of his writing. However, no one has given him any serious pricing analysis on solana.

Tyson is nicknamed “Iron Mike” and “Kid Dynamite” in his early career, and later known as “The Baddest Man on the Planet.”

Last week, he tweeted that he was “All in on Solana,” adding that he “Just copped a Catalina Whale.” His tweet included an image of a non-fungible token (NFT) from the Catalina Whale Mixer collection.

Iron Mike’s own NFT collection is also available on Opensea. It was created in collaboration by artist Cory Van Lew in August 2013. “The Mike Tyson NFT Collection is a limited-edition series of NFTs that celebrates the iconic life and legacy of the Baddest Man on the Planet, Mike Tyson,” according to the description of the collection.

Tyson further tweeted about NFTs last week: “Ever since I got into NFTs I have been looking for crypto partnerships and DREAM really stood out. It’s the first of its kind that can only be traded during US stock market hours. Could revolutionize the space and help the mental health of the crypto community.”

Iron Mike reached out to his Twitter followers asking which cryptocurrency they preferred before he got into solana. Iron Mike was considering bitcoin and ether when he weighed them in June 2017. He tweeted, “Which do you prefer, BTC or ETH?” He then tried to choose between solana and ether. In September, he tweeted, “Solana or Ethereum?”

According to data from, Solana is the fifth largest cryptocurrency. It has a market cap of around $47 billion. It currently trades at $149.84. Although the cryptocurrency has increased 4,495% in the last year, it is still down over 15% for the month.

Bank of America released a bullish solana report last week. It stated that SOL could capture market share from Ethereum and be the Visa of digital asset ecosystem.
