Zeta Markets 🤝 Project Serum

Zeta and Serum are aligned in their vision to bring new products to DeFi on Solana. We believe that this is a great step forward for DeFi derivatives on Solana, as we reduce parallel development in the ecosystem and provide community-oriented, ‘CeFi-like’ experience on Solana.
