Cardano’s First DEX SundaeSwap Fails To Impress On Launch

DeFi protocol SundaeSwap recently launched its highly-anticipated mainnet after a series of testing. The DEX, it is believed, would allow users to trade, stake, and lend tokens on the platform for a small fee. However, several users who tried using the platform at its launch said they raised complaints about their inability to perform transactions via the site. 

This failure was later revealed to be a result of network congestion on the platform, indicating the level of anticipation and enthusiasm the DEX had caused in the Cardano community. IOHK said:

"Congratulations to @SundaeSwap on their launch today. Due to heavy #Cardano network load, some users may be waiting longer for transactions to complete as a result. This is to be expected around DEX launches & large NFT drops. Thanks for your patience during these busy periods."

Speaking on this, SundaeSwap’s Chief Executive Officer, Mateen Motavaf, explained that the issue is now under control. To further put users at ease, around 1 am after the launch, the App’s team held a Twitter Spaces AMA to address the issues users have been experiencing.

Despite the teething challenges faced during the mainnet launch of SundaeSwap, available data from DeFiLlama has shown that the total value of assets locked in the ecosystem is now worth $82 million, leading to an 86.6% growth of DeFi TVL on the Cardano blockchain in just 24 hours.

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA has dropped considerably during the ongoing session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ADA drop to $0.95 and post a recovery.
