Savor the new summer flavors - SOL and DOT are now available!

Solana (SOL) and Polkadot (DOT) arrive along with 0% trading fee

As our Summer of Discovery unfolds, we have launched SOL and DOT, giving you two more reasons to make use of our new 0% trading fee*.

Both tokens are listed globally (excluding Singapore). Here’s a rundown of the projects:

About Solana (SOL)

Solana is a layer 1 blockchain platform whose goal is to maximize transaction speeds through a novel computational mechanism called Proof of History. Through its architecture, Solana aims to solve the blockchain trilemma of blockchain security, scalability, and decentralization. Accomplishing two of these goals is common for many blockchains but finding a balance of all three is notoriously difficult.

Its native token, SOL, is used by validators who stake tokens to secure the network, and by delegators who assign their tokens to validators. Each is rewarded with a share of new coins from block rewards for contributing to the network.

About Polkadot (DOT)

Polkadot is a blockchain protocol that provides the basis for building interconnected, specialized blockchain projects called parachains using the security, consensus, and transaction settlement of its main blockchain (the Relay Chain). Additionally, parachains can connect to other networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum using bridges.

Its native token, DOT, is used for a number of purposes on the network, including providing security through validator staking, staking the tokens to vote in governance proposals to make changes to the platform, and lastly, to bid for parachains to secure slots in the Polkadot ecosystem.
