Solana Blockchain Returns to Normalcy

On the other hand, SOL-based DEXs have experienced a significant increase in trading volume. According to DEX Screener data, trading volume has surpassed $1 billion, a considerable rebound from previous days.

The increase in DEX trading volume is thanks to the growing popularity of SOL-based memecoins. Coins like SLERF, cat in a dogs world (MEW), and Dogwifhat (WIF) have been key in driving the development of the SOL ecosystem.

Beyond the positive news, the DeFi sector faces a complex regulatory framework, with the SEC increasing its crackdown on the crypto industry, as evidenced by the recent Wells notice against Uniswap.

Solana hopes to return to a path of growth and development. With technical updates to improve its network and the immediate positive impact they had, we will see the blockchain emerge from the shadow of uncertainty it was cast into due to congestion issues and transaction failures.
