Serum Newsletter #1
Welcome to the first edition of the Serum Newsletter! This newsletter will be used to cover the latest developments in the ecosystem, go over talking points regarding Project Serum and Solana, and pretty much everything else that has something to do with Serum.
On the 8th of October, Solana announced Wormhole, a secure and decentralized bridge to Ethereum. Wormhole, the product of a partnership with Certus One, will be first of many decentralized cross-chain bridges on Solana.
“It uses decentralized cross-chain oracles — called guardians — operated by a set of node operators that include top Solana validators and other ecosystem stakeholders whose incentives are strongly aligned with Solana and Serum. Those guardians certify token lockups and burns on one chain in order to mint new tokens or release tokens on the other, and vice versa. “ — Certus One
SenSwap is the first project that is building an AMM for Serum. Keep an eye out on the SenSwap Twitter for the latest developments. With AMMs come Liquidity Pools, and to understand pools and their significance, check out this Tweet thread by Sam.
Serum in the Media
Bonfida recently released their own SPL Wallet (in semi-beta now), and is an incredibly beautiful alternative to sollet.io The wallet will also connect to Bonfida’s GUI! Bonfida has also launched a feed on Telegram that tracks big orders on Serum.
“Watching a Project Serum UI to see the order book flash on the right and update every 400ms is just magical It looks and feels *identical* to a CEX, but underneath, it’s a censorship resistant DEX. Welcome to the future.” — Kyle Samani
