🗓️ This Week In Solana (4/26)

All the top news and airdrops

Hey there 👋,

Welcome to This Week In Solana, bringing you all the top news and airdrops in the Solana ecosystem.

Remember when Jupiter was just a swap aggregator? Now with its Meta Acceleration Strategy, its ecosystem is growing so fast that it will likely become the biggest dApp on Solana (currently #7 in TVL), as well as the biggest functioning DAO in all of crypto - over 400K unique wallets just voted!

With so much news coming out each week, perhaps I should rename this newsletter This Week in Jupiter!
