The trading volume of Solana’s decentralized exchanges (DEXs) has witnessed a significant surge, with a 33.89% increase in the past week, reaching over $3 billion.
The growth has propelled Solana to become the third-largest chain in terms of weekly transaction volume, trailing only Ethereum and Arbitrum. With top DEXs Orca and Raydium both growing by more than 40%.
Solana DEX Trading Surges 40% To Over $3 Billion
Solana is currently the third-largest chain in terms of weekly transaction volume behind Ethereum ($9.87 billion) and Arbitrum ($4.33 billion).
This surge in trading activity marks a departure from the previous year’s trend, during which Solana’s DeFi sector experienced a decline in TVL due to the decreasing price of SOL and the overall market downturn.
Concerns about the project’s association with the financially troubled FTX exchange further contributed to the downward trajectory. However, the recent surge in Solana DEX trading volume indicates a renewed confidence in the ecosystem.
Despite this positive momentum, Solana faced a security vulnerability in the Solana Saga phone, an Android-based smartphone that integrates the Solana Mobile Stack (SMS).
CertiK, a leading cybersecurity firm, discovered a flaw that put over 2,100 devices at critical risk since April. The vulnerability allowed assets to be transferred within a minute of obtaining the phone. CertiK promptly informed Solana and issued a public alert regarding the issue.
