The Kin Foundation is pleased to announce that Alameda Research will provide liquidity for the Kin cryptocurrency on Serum, a fast-transaction throughput decentralized exchange with trustless cross-chain trading.

Project Serum is a high-performance protocol that powers an independent ecosystem of exchanges and markets that bridge crypto-ecosystems such as Ethereum and Solana. By allowing Kin to be featured on Serum, Kin users will gain more market accessibility and the ability to experience Serum via a variety of wallets and GUIs such as Bonfida, Sollet, Solong or Serum Pro.

This new development is one of the early outcomes of the Kin ecosystem migration to the Solana blockchain, enabling Kin to continue growing as one of the most used cryptocurrency by mainstream consumers.

“Adding Kin to Serum was a logical decision,” said Sam Bankman-Fried, Founder and CEO of Alameda Research, “Given the successful migration to Solana, and the scale of their daily active users, it is a project that we have been keeping our eyes on.”

“Serum is the fastest-growing DEX on Solana,” said William Mougayar, Executive Chairman of the Kin Foundation, “Following Kin interest from the Asian markets, and our desire to harness the potential of the Solana blockchain, we welcome our partnership with Alameda Research.”
