Solana is due for listing on Coinbase’s Pro platform as well. The launch was delayed due to technical issues as per an announcement on Twitter by the platform on May 22.
Solana’s co-founder and chief operating officer Raj Gokal told Benzinga last week that the listing “validates all of the hard work that the community has put into building out the hundreds of dApps and platforms that make up an ever-growing ecosystem.”
