SundaeSwap Brings In Several Functionalities Cardano
SundaeSwap has reportedly become the first fully functional DEX on the Cardano testnet. Smart contracts on Cardano hit a huge technical roadblock soon after being launched in September with the Alonzo hardfork.
In September of this year, one of the initial teams working on a DEX called MinSwap on Cardano testnet failed to achieve token swap functionality. Following this, Minswap as well other teams, including SundaeSwap, stated that Cardano dApps needed scaling solutions to mitigate concurrency problems.
After three months, SundaeSwap has seemingly deployed a working scaling solution, at least on the testnet. Its DEX leverages a transaction aggregation mechanism that makes it possible to exchange Cardano-native tokens with one another. Using smart contracts, the DEX also supports decentralized liquidity pools.
Users can connect a wallet service called Nami that is compatible with SundaeSwap testnet, then proceed with some test funds (tADA). They can then test the platform by either swapping tokens or adding liquidity. Adding test funds may take some time, depending on congestion.
As SundaeSwap is still in a testnet phase, the subsequent mainnet may launch in the coming weeks after the team fixes all reported bugs. However, a hard date for mainnet release has not been revealed.
The platform is still not free of bugs, though. While several users have reported successfully swapping tokens on the SundaeSwap testnet, others have complained about transaction delays of up to one hour and longer due to congestion.
Despite the congestion and bugs, the platform is considered a functional product. The development at SundaeSwap is a cause for excitement for the Cardano community and hints that DeFi on the network may be around the corner.
Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Looking at the Cardano price chart, we can see that ADA had recovered on Monday but fell back during the ongoing session. If bearish sentiment takes over, we could see ADA drop to $1.36, where the price could find support.
