Co-founders speak on the switch to Saga
Many amazing announcements were made during NFT.NYC with Solana announcing the birth of Solana Mobile Stack and the flagship Saga cellphone. Many eyes were wide as Mr. Yakovenko took the stage and showed the future of web3 via a mobile device. Another announcement was Orca bringing their platform to the device via a simple app.
As stated on their website
Orca is the easiest way to exchange cryptocurrency on the Solana blockchain. Here, you can exchange tokens with minimal transaction fees and lower latency than any DEX on Ethereum, all while knowing that you’re getting a fair price. Additionally, you may provide liquidity to a trading pool to earn a share of trading fees.
The platform has seen huge success and the founder of Solana is constantly singing the praises of the team. You can find out even more about the team from their faq.
During the presentation Co-founders Yutaro Mori and Grace Kwon introduced their app while once again speaking on their slogan of Orca being DeFi for people and not programs.
The team is focused on bringing the benefits of DeFi to normal people who may not be as tech-savvy as Degens. Miss Kwon showed off the simple one-step process to trade on the Saga phone to a round of applause. Yutaro went on to explain other ideas of the team and plans for more features on Android as well. He couldn’t commit to real promises but spoke on how a new mobile experience powered by the liquidity layer of Orca could be made.
Yutaro also spoke about how he loved the SDK and how you still can connect to RPC servers and fetch accounts from the blockchain very easily. He also spoke on plans to create a react native SDK that would allow a developer to support a full spectrum of options on the platform which basically points to how easy it will be to develop the platform on the Saga form.
Miss Kwon ended the presentation with “Build on Orca maybe get money” and spoke on how the main goal of Orca is to bring crypto opportunities to as many people as possible and how working on the Saga phone helps them to obtain that goal.
