Solana (SOL) made headlines throughout 2021 for being one of the highest return projects of the year. In ten months, it went from just $2 to an all-time high of $260.06, making crypto millionaires in the process. Although the hype around Solana has since died down, new projects like Big Eyes (BIG) and Orbeon Protocol (ORBN) are following its success, with ORBN seeing analyst predictions of a 6000% price increase after its presale finishes.
Big Eyes (BIG)
Big Eyes is bringing the spotlight back to memecoins, using the benefits of memecoins to support ocean-based charities. Big Eyes is currently in stage 6 of its presale and plans to use a fraction of the money it raises for charity work.
Big Eyes is dedicated to impacting ocean conservation by leveraging the utility of memecoins. Big Eyes plans to use its funds to support research and development of Ocean sustainability projects. The Big Eyes team is also working with local governments and communities to create sustainable solutions that will help protect our oceans.
In particular, Big Eyes is designed to help clean our oceans so their cat NFTs can “eat the fish.” With a great design and cat-themed NFT collection in progress, Big Eyes is making waves throughout the crypto world.
Solana was launched in March 2020 by the Solana Foundation to enhance decentralized app (DApp) creation. Using a proof-of-history consensus combined with a proof-of-stake agreement, Solana aims to improve DApp scalability and speed.
It’s become a popular transaction between investors and has its own branch in the NFT market, supporting popular projects such as Degenerate Ape Academy and Solana Monkey Business. One Solana is currently worth $14.79, an increase of 3.02% in the past week.
As Solana continues to make decentralized finance more accessible, its value will likely bounce back following the current bear market.
Orbeon Protocol (ORBN)
Orbeon Protocol is a new DeFi launchpad designed to support startups looking for investment. It’s powered by several blockchains and lets everyday investors fractionally invest in startups (a market usually only available to venture capitalists).
Instead of needing large sums of money, investors can support a startup for as little as $1. So how does this process work?
Through Orbeon Protocol, startups can mint NFTs that represent equity in their business. They can then sell these NFTs to raise funds, helping diversify where startups are getting their funds from and opens the door to new investors who would usually be locked out of the startup investment market.
Investors are protected on Orbeon Protocol through an innovative “Fill or Kill” security mechanism. If a startup doesn’t meet its funding requirement, the smart contract ensures funds are automatically refunded.
Holders of ORBN, the project’s native utility token, are also granted several benefits, including governance and voting rights, discounts on all trades, staking bonuses, early access to funding rounds, and exclusive investor groups.
With the potential to disrupt the $13.5 Billion crowdfunding market, investors are highly excited about Orbeon Protocol. Market experts believe ORBN could increase by over 6,000% in value by the end of its presale, increasing from $0.014 to $0.24.
With so much already being offered and Orbeon Protocol releasing a Metaverse later next year, it’s no surprise that the value of ORBN is catching the attention of investors worldwide.
