Leading Solana DEX to Impose Trading Restrictions for US Users

Leading Solana DEX to Impose Trading Restrictions for US Users

Due to regulatory uncertainty, one of the leading decentralized exchanges (DEX) built on Solana (SOL) plans to prohibit US customers from trading on its platform.

Orca, the leading decentralized exchange (DEX) on Solana (SOL) blockchain, has announced that it will be imposing restrictions on American traders from March 31, 2023.

The reason for this change in policy has not been disclosed.

However, it’s worth noting that the new restriction will not affect the ability of US users to interact with Orca’s smart contract or software development kit (SDK), nor will it hinder their ability to provide liquidity through Orca.

As per DefiLlama, Orca is presently the leading DEX on Solana with $47.5 million in TVL, followed by Raydium (RAY) with $37.45 million in TVL.

TVL is a metric used to represent the total capital held within a blockchain’s smart contracts.

Orca’s native governance token, ORCA, is currently trading at $0.776, and its market cap ranks 783rd, with an increase of almost 0.4% in the past 24 hours and more than 4.5% in the past week.
