🌊 Deepsea Insights 🌏

Community Listings continue to grow, and some pools are finding great success! One protocol that has taken advantage of this feature is BlazeStake and their bSOL liquid staking token. Both their bSOL/SOL and bSOL/BONK pairs have seen tremendous growth over the past few weeks and have grown to a total of nearly $500k in liquidity. This is a great example of a project that is active in the Solana community taking advantage of Orca’s community listings to help push their protocol forward! 🐋
