What a week! 🙌 We are grateful for the wonderful events organised by the Solana team and inspired by all the builders in the ecosystem!

Raydium and Project Serum 🌌

We are glad to announce that Raydium is cooperating with Serum to kick-off a yield farming initiative to further drive trading, bridged assets, and cross-chain liquidity on Solana!

RiskSwap and Project Serum 💧

Serum succeeded in creating an #onchain #orderbook — a crucially important $DeFi development. We believe that the Serum agnostic order book perfectly matches the goals of RiskSwap: to provide seamless, fast and, convenient derivatives trading for all user groups.

Brave 🤝 Solana

Brave will integrate the Solana blockchain into the Brave browser, providing default Solana ecosystem support to Brave’s 42 million monthly active users and 1.3 million verified Creators. Brave will soon default to Solana for cross-chain and Solana native DApps.

“With more and more users and creators requiring tools for fast and affordable access to the decentralized Web, this integration will seamlessly pave the way for the next billion crypto users to harness applications and tokens,” said Brendan Eich, CEO and co-founder of Brave.

The Graph Integrating 🌞 Solana

The integration will address existing friction points for dapp builders. The Graph will make it easier for developers to things such as query the Solana blockchain, access historical data, or visualize data analytics!
