🌊 Deepsea Insights 🌏

This year was a time of great transformation for Orca, Solana, and the entire crypto ecosystem. Over the past twelve months, Orca and Solana both made incredible progress in building out the infrastructure that will enable the future of decentralized finance.

When the year began, Orca’s Whirlpools did not even exist. Now they often power a majority of Solana’s on-chain trading volume. Users also now have the ability to take advantage of the efficiency of concentrated liquidity and permissionlessly launch their own Whirlpools with the token pairs and fee tiers of their choosing.

Of course, not everything has been smooth sailing. The last two months in particular have been very difficult for Solana. Some have gotten scared by these events and set a course for foreign shores, but the podmates at Orca are not afraid and have not lost sight of the unique vision for the future that Solana can bring to life. There is no other blockchain with the technology, talent, and tenacity that the Solana community brings to the table.

With that in mind, Orca has big plans for 2023, including a boatload of new features that will make trading and providing liquidity easier than ever before. Orca looks forward to building alongside the many other skilled, dedicated projects working to fulfill Solana’s potential.
