  • Solana-based Backpack crypto exchange has registered more than $300 million in trading volume in 24 hours.
  • Regulatory compliance and global accessibility.

A new cryptocurrency exchange, Backpack, has swiftly emerged as a major player in the digital asset space, leveraging the Solana blockchain to achieve remarkable success. Within a mere 24 hours of its pre-season beta launch, the platform surpassed the $300 million mark in trading volume. The creation of the exchange was spearheaded by the creators of Solana’s Mad Lads executable nonfungible token (NFT) collection.

Backpack exchange achieves laudable success

The exchange has garnered attention for its association with the record-breaking Mad Lads xNFT collection and the immense potential of the Solana blockchain. Anndy Lian, an esteemed intergovernmental blockchain expert and author of “NFT: From Zero to Hero,” attributes Backpack Exchange’s rapid rise to prominence to its utilization of the Solana blockchain.

Solana is renowned for its speed and scalability in supporting decentralized applications (dApps), making it a frontrunner in the burgeoning sector of decentralized finance (DeFi). The exchange’s pre-season launch witnessed an impressive influx of 6,000 unique deposit transactions within the first 24 hours, signaling strong interest and demand among users.

Backpack Exchange boasts impressive trading metrics, including lightning-fast one-millisecond order placement and sub-one millisecond order cancellation, according to Armani Ferrante, the founder and CEO of Backpack. Notably, the SOL/USDC spot trading pair on Backpack surpassed $643 million in 24-hour trading volume, eclipsing Binance’s trading pair, which generated $2.4 million in the same timeframe.

Regulatory compliance is a key focus for Backpack Exchange, further enhancing its credibility and appeal to users worldwide. In October 2023, the exchange obtained a virtual asset service provider (VASP) license from the Dubai Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA).

Regulatory compliance and global accessibility

Additionally, Backpack secured operational licenses across various jurisdictions globally throughout the latter half of 2023, ensuring adherence to regulatory standards and facilitating seamless access for users across borders. The success of Backpack Exchange has also had a ripple effect on the broader digital asset ecosystem.

Following its launch, the 24-hour trading volume of Mad Lads NFTs experienced a significant surge, increasing by 77.93% to exceed $1 million. This propelled Mad Lads to become the third-largest NFT collection by daily trading volume across all blockchain networks. Simultaneously, Solana witnessed a 20.19% increase in sales volume for NFTs, reaching $7.35 million in daily NFT sales volume.

While Ethereum maintained its position as the leading blockchain for NFTs, recording $18.28 million in 24-hour NFT sales volume, Solana’s growth underscores its growing prominence in the NFT space. Backpack Exchange’s rapid ascent highlights the growing significance of the Solana blockchain and the increasing adoption of NFTs within the digital asset landscape. With its robust trading infrastructure, regulatory compliance, and impressive trading volumes, Backpack is poised to reshape the cryptocurrency exchange landscape and drive further innovation in the space.
