[[{"value":"

The decentralized exchange (DEX) trading volume on the Solana (SOL) blockchain has skyrocketed, surpassing the $2 billion mark for four consecutive days, with a record-breaking trading volume of $2.85 billion achieved on March 5. 

According to DeFi TVL aggregator DeFiLlama, Solana DEXes recorded over $2 billion in trading volume over the past day, up by 153% in the past week. 

Currently, Solana is the third largest blockchain network in terms of DEX volume, trailing behind Ethereum and Arbitrum.

Ethereum, which hosts the largest DeFi ecosystem, registered around $4.7 billion in trading volume in the past 24 hours, with a positive weekly change of 54%.

On the other hand, Arbitrum DEXes saw $2.1 billion in daily trading volume, up by 85% over the past week. 

Solana’s DeFi Thrives

The surge in trading volume on Solana can be attributed to various factors, one of which is the increasing number of on-chain transactions taking place. 

The influx of users and the resulting congestion on the Solana network have contributed to the heightened trading activity. 

The impressive growth in Solana’s DEX trading volume also reflects the platform’s ability to handle large-scale transactions and showcases its rising prominence in the blockchain industry. 

Solana’s high throughput and low transaction fees have attracted traders and investors looking for a seamless trading experience without the bottlenecks typically associated with other networks.

Solana’s surge in popularity comes at a time when the overall cryptocurrency market is experiencing heightened interest and increased demand.

On Monday, Bitcoin reached a new lifetime high above $69,000, fueled by investors pouring money into U.S. spot exchange-traded crypto products and the prospect that global interest rates may fall.

Solana has also witnessed a remarkable uptick, surging 12% in the last week and an impressive 35% in the past month, showcasing a robust bullish trend in the cryptocurrency market. 

Solana Boasts Over 2,500 Active Developers

The Solana ecosystem now boasts more than 2,500 monthly active developers, according to the Solana Foundation. 

The foundation highlighted that the network has maintained a consistent range of 2,500 to 3,000 monthly active developers throughout the past year, a testament to the ecosystem’s ability to attract and retain talent. 

The increased developer activity comes as Solana continues to make waves in the crypto community, achieving several significant milestones.

The network has surpassed Ethereum (ETH) in 7-day stablecoin trading volume for the first time ever. 

As reported, the value of stablecoin transfers on Solana reached a staggering $103 billion in the first week of January, outperforming all other networks. 

Ethereum secured the second position with $90.9 billion, followed by Tron with $82.3 billion and BNB Chain with $14.6 billion.

In addition to stablecoin trading volume, Solana also surpassed Ethereum in NFT trade volume for the month of December.
