Key Takeaways:

  • Crypto exchange FTX will integrate Bonfida’s Solana Name Service.
  • FIDA prices jumped nearly 50% on Mar 2 before prices corrected on Thursday.

NEW DELHI ( — Solana-based multifunctional platform Bonfida announced it has partnered with FTX to integrate the former’s Solana Name Service (SNS) in the cryptocurrency exchange’s platform.

In detail, SNS helps users associate a human-readable name with any SOL address, promoting adoption as easy-to-read payment addresses would help facilitate transactions. Bonfida stated their name service played a key role in enhancing the efficiency of the overall ecosystem.

The SNS platform has registered more than 150,000 users, who can now send and receive digital asset payments, along with other facilities, using their .sol domain name.

Moreover, Bonfida’s partnership with FTX would help users directly withdraw from the exchange, which the platform considered “a long-awaited missing piece to truly showcase the value of SNS.”

Users have often compared Bonfida’s Solana-centric name service with the Ethereum Name Service (ENS), which gained popularity with an airdrop in Nov 2021.

However, Bonfida was quick to clarify the differences between the two platforms, taking to Twitter to publish a comparison between the two platforms.

Apart from SNS, Bonfida also provides on-chain data analytics services to the Solana ecosystem. Furthermore, the platform deployed the industry’s first DEX on Serum in 2020.
