What is Bonfida?
Offering a multitude of services and products on the Solana ecosystem, Bonfida grows and aids in the flourishment of the broader ecosystem. With its humble beginnings in providing API services and hosting flagship Serum DEX since its launch in 2020, Bonfida soon launched the $FIDA token as they realized the demand for DeFi-related services/products. Over time, Bonfida has grown to host several products and revenue streams, encouraging and benefiting their tokenomics.
Some of the services they host include messaging, Token vesting contract, Bug bounty, and Solana Name Service (SNS).
