Burns and Staking Rewards

Project Serum has passed $1.8B in trading volume since inception, burned 980K $SRM and dropped 39,350 $SRM as on-chain staking rewards. This week alone 38,136.61 $SRM was burned and 9534.15 $SRM was dropped on stakers. $272,677 at the present $SRM price.

Sollet.io Chrome Extension

Sollet is now available as a Chrome extension and it interacts with all the same dapps that work with the web based Sollet.io.

One of the cool new features is the dapp manager page, which allows extension users to manage their connected Solana dapps across all of their Sollet accounts and toggle auto approve on/off. In the future it will be possible to surface metadata from dapps such as trade history for Serum, staked lp tokens for Raydium, etc…

Please note there are two small bugs which are fixed but waiting on the Chrome extension store to update:

  1. Some windows users can’t connect at all, the screen says something about a missing file.
  2. The “keep unlocked” feature doesn’t work.

Governance Voting Teaser

Serum launched its first teaser of the governance voting program. This is an upgradeable program governed by a multisig that can upgrade itself! Governance is a key part within the ecosystem, having this function allows those involved to have a key say in the direction Serum goes.
