Partnership Announcement: Zeta x Katana
Building the future of DeFi on Solana
We’re honored to announce that Katana and Zeta have entered into a strategic partnership to contribute to building the future of finance on Solana.
What Does This Mean?
At a very high level this means that Katana will be integrating its yield generation primitive with the Zeta DEX, which should ultimately allow Katana users to benefit from higher yields. This also brings Zeta and Katana one step closer to fulfilling their joint vision of permissionless innovation, and unlocking the true potential of DeFi.
“Katana are a fast-moving team that have been building alongside the Zeta team since the early days of Solana DeFi. We’ve been super excited to see them grow to where they are today, and are incredibly excited to partner with them to launch the next generation of options vaults as both projects hit mainnet”
Tristan0x — Core Contributor at Zeta
Why Is This Important?
Vault products have seen phenomenal growth in the second half of 2021, and the demand for on-chain derivatives continues to follow this trend. This has captured the interest of both retail and institutional investors. As such, there is a natural overlap in Zeta & Katana’s product offerings — every yield generation primitive (a Katana vault) needs infrastructure (Zeta DEX) and every infrastructure primitive needs liquidity to be able to provide a best in-class trading experience.
“We’ve been friends with the Zeta team since their hackathon days and are extremely excited to partner with them in building the next-generation of DeFi options vaults on Zeta”
Ayush Menon — Founder at Katana
When Will This Be Available?
We expect that this will be live and available to Katana users early in Q1 as the Zeta DEX goes live on mainnet(!). Stay tuned for more big announcements coming soon and make sure to join our community!
