Recently, Sei Network has emerged as a dynamic player. With a recent beta launch and listings on major exchanges, the native Sei (SEI) token has taken the market by storm, achieving a staggering valuation of $1.8 billion within its initial day of trading.


Sei Token’s Meteoric Rise on Exchange Debut

On August 15, a significant milestone was achieved as major cryptocurrency exchanges – including Binance, Bybit, and Bitget – collectively listed Sei Network’s native token, SEI. The token’s trading journey kicked off at $0.064 per unit but quickly surged to an astonishing high of $0.48, leaving traders and enthusiasts astounded. As of the time of writing, SEI was maintaining a strong presence at $0.18. Impressively, the total supply of SEI is set at 10 billion, with an initial supply of 1.8 billion tokens.

Beta Launch and Network Performance

Simultaneously, Sei Network launched the beta phase of its mainnet on the same day. The network’s developers proudly reported that during the alpha phase, an impressive 400 million transactions were processed, and 7.5 million test wallets were created. One of the most compelling features Sei brings to the table is its ability to finalize transactions within an astonishingly rapid 0.5 seconds, capable of processing up to 20,000 transactions simultaneously. This efficiency has the potential to revolutionize the blockchain landscape and enhance user experiences across various applications.

Empowering Decentralized Exchanges with Innovative Tools

Sei Network is built upon the robust foundation of the Cosmos software development kit. Its primary objective is to revolutionize the trading capabilities of decentralized exchanges (DEXs) through the implementation of a powerful matching engine and cutting-edge order front-run prevention tools. This strategic approach positions Sei as a catalyst for positive change within the DEX realm, potentially addressing some of the long-standing scalability issues.

Diverse Applications and Strong Backing

Current Web 3 infrastructure is unscalable, congested, and still too slow.

He mentioned that 30 Sei applications are slated for launch by the end of the year. Among the notable upcoming projects is a perpetual futures exchange on the Sei protocol by DEX SushiSwap. This signifies the network’s potential to not only transform DEXs but also to reshape various sectors within the blockchain ecosystem.

Developers working within the Sei ecosystem benefit from a substantial $120 million ecosystem development fund. This financial support is partly attributed to the generous contribution of $20 million from exchange MEXC Global in January. Additional funding came from Bitget and venture capital firm Foresight Ventures, raising an impressive $50 million for the ecosystem fund in April. Notably, Sei had closed a $30 million funding round just days before at a valuation of $800 million, further solidifying its standing within the industry.
