A widely shared video taken from a podcast discussion between several well-known venture capitalists about their investments in Solana’s native token, SOL, stunned the crypto community, with many questioning his intentions.
clip, which belongs to a nearly month-long episode of the All-in Podcast, featured investors such as Founding Capital Stock Chamath Palihapitiya and Artisan Companies General Partner David Sacks, and showed just a short segment where investors joked and laughed at the investments of others in SOL.
Among the questions posed in the short video were things like “But you’re holding on, right?” to which Palihapitiya replied “ish.” Later in the video, Palihapitiya also asked “do you think I’m buying something without a discount”, before continuing to say “everything is a discount”.

Ethereum differs from Solana in that it is a decentralized network, while Solana suffered a major outage in September when the network went offline for 17 hours.
Also, speaking of the timing of investments like SOL’s, Chamath Palihapitiya explained that the time frame depends on whether it is viewed as “an investment or an idea that you love so much,” adding “if it’s the latter, you shouldn’t.” never sell ‘.
And while some investors may be intimidated that larger investors entered discounted prices long before them, some industry observers remain optimistic about Solana’s future.

Meanwhile, cryptocurrency exchange Kraken also noted in a relationship today that “SOL has continued to increasingly attract the attention of new and existing market operators, especially institutions.”
