Friktion survived the last year’s crypto market meltdown that plunged fast-growing trading platforms such as FTX and Terra Luna to liquidity woes and bankruptcy. The DeFi platform regrets closing operations.

Friktion revealed that the bearish crypto market had limited the growth of the DeFi platform. In addition, the team disclosed that closing the user platform was a difficult decision to make. Per the report, the tough decision involved contributions from Friktion’s key stakeholders, including the customers and the crypto community.

Friktion Next Move

After the unexpected closure of the user platform, the Friktion team anticipates supporting the expansion of the Solana ecosystem. The team firmly believes that the Solana DeFI project will succeed in the future.

The team restated that after developing a Solana-based application, Friktion generated substantial gains of over $3B in trading volumes and created more than 20000 crypto wallets.
