“Comparing Solana’s TVL to other emerging chains doesn’t tell the whole story. Usage is driven by key non-TVL use cases such as derivatives, NFTs and DePIN networks. If Solana decides to enable incentives, we’ll quickly see volume parity with the top L2s.Messari researchers I have written.

Shifting to these efforts could be key to the Solana ecosystem, and is very likely to see increased adoption.
