The Solana team has released an update to combat network congestion

The developers of the Solana blockchain have released an update of version 1.17.31, designed to solve the problem of network congestion.
As a reminder, in the period from April 4 to 5, 2024, approximately 77% of transactions in the Solana network were not completed. Presumably, this happened because of the hype around the memos.
On April 9, blockchain developers announced that they intend to solve the problem of non-fulfillment of transactions by April 15, 2024. However, they noted that the implementation date for the fixes may be postponed during the testing of future updates.

This usually attracts more traders to the markets, by making it easier and less risky to trade your token which can help to increase the overall liquidity and trading volumes both for the benefit of traders and issuers. However, we recognize that providing liquidity also comes with potential risks, which we carefully evaluate and manage as part of our investment decision-making process.
