Boosting DeFi on the Swift Sui Blockchain: $51.3 Million Ecosystem Fund Announced

The Sui Foundation, the organization responsible for managing and developing the Sui blockchain, has recently announced a $51.3 million ecosystem fund to support its DeFi (Decentralized Finance) sector. This fund will be utilized to foster the growth of Sui's ecosystem by offering grants to developers of DeFi applications and supporting its on-chain central limit order book platform called DeepBlock.

DeepBlock aims to provide high-frequency trading capabilities similar to that of Nasdaq and centralized exchanges by leveraging Sui's swift transaction speed. The Sui Foundation spokesperson highlighted Sui's advantages, such as unparalleled low latency, high throughput, and efficient on-chain storage, thanks to Sui's object-centric approach, horizontal scalability, and capacity for efficient on-chain storage. In fact, the network recently set a record by processing a staggering 65.8 million transactions in a single day, surpassing the performance of every other blockchain in history.

The allocation of the $51.3 million fund is expected to provide a new tailwind for developers and ecosystem participants, according to Greg Siourounis, the Managing Director of the Sui Foundation. This move appears to be a strategic decision by the Foundation to reclaim the tokens from market makers, with the aim of bolstering the ecosystem's growth. While the Foundation declined to comment on the specifics of the deal with the market makers, they did note that SUI has always been and continues to be a highly liquid token on centralized exchanges (CEXes).

The Sui Foundation's focus extends beyond DeepBlock, as they also plan to support other native DeFi applications in areas such as automated market makers (AMM), decentralized exchanges, liquid staking, and lending protocols on the network. Currently, Sui holds the 35th position among top blockchains in terms of total deposits in DeFi protocols, with assets worth $38.2 million, according to DeFiLlama data.

Overall, the Sui Foundation's $51.3 million ecosystem fund signifies their commitment to boosting the DeFi sector on the Sui blockchain. By providing financial support to developers and promoting the growth of various DeFi applications, they aim to solidify Sui's position as a leading blockchain platform in the decentralized finance space.
