Team Behind Top Lending Protocol Launches Suilend on Sui

March 11, 2024 – Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

The Suilend lending protocol is Solend’s first venture outside of the Solana ecosystem underscoring confidence in Sui’s technology.

Suilend, Solend’s first expansion outside the Solana ecosystem, officially launched today on the Sui Network.

Solend which boasts over $200 million in TVL (total value locked) across more than 170,000 users with support for over 70 assets – now brings its unparalleled DeFi expertise and experience building industry-leading lending protocols to the Sui ecosystem in a move that adds to the quickly expanding depth of the Sui ecosystem.

Discussing the launch, Rooter, the pseudonymous founder of Solend, said,

“Developing on Ethereum and Solana felt like building a cathedral with chisels and hammers. That’s not to say you can’t build great things cathedrals are some of the most beautiful human achievements. But we want to build rocket ships, and for that, you need advanced tools like laser cutters and welders. That’s what Sui and Move offer, with better developer tools.”

The announcement follows hot on the heels of Bluefin, a burgeoning DEX with daily volumes exceeding $100 million, committing exclusively to Sui over Arbitrum for its version two development and unveiling its roadmap into 2024.

Security is a distinct focus for participants in the DeFi space, and with the launch of Solend on Sui, the protocol is leveraging a network in Sui that has industry-leading security.

By launching on Sui, Solend capitalizes on the inherent security features integrated into the Move language, which provides built-in protections for its smart contracts.

Additionally, partnerships with leading blockchain security firms Zellic and Ottersec entail rigorous audits of projects like Suilend, ensuring adherence to the highest security standards.

Suilend will also benefit from Sui’s parallel processing for most transactions.

Sui boasts the lowest levels of latency in the industry and facilitates horizontal scaling, achieving a peak throughput of up to 297,000 transactions per second and a time-to-finality of approximately 480 milliseconds.

Greg Siourounis, managing director of the Sui Foundation, said,

“We are delighted to welcome a protocol with the background of performance and success of Suilend to the Sui ecosystem. Sui’s blistering transaction speeds, infinite scalability and pervasive efficiency are tailor-made for DeFi projects like Suilend,…
