Solrise Hires a Former Trade Finance Executive and Brings Institutions to Solana’s Ecosystem

One of the first popular cryptocurrency exchanges on Solana (SOL) has announced the hiring of a new employee.

Solrise, an ecosystem of Solana-centric wealth management solutions and crypto exchange protocols, today announced the addition of a new board member to its board of directors.

Solrise hires Joseph Edwards as its head of financial strategy. According to the Solrise team’s official statement, fintech expert Joseph Edwards will oversee the company’s financial strategy.

Prior to joining Solrise, Mr. Edwards was the head of research at Enigma Securities, an institutional crypto trading business.

Mr. Edwards’ new responsibility will be to solidify Solrise’s position as the premier Solana-based ecosystem for institutions.

Mr. Edwards is ecstatic about his new job and confident in Solana’s disruptive potential in the DeFi space: I’m thrilled to join Solrise as the firm expands its institutional and retail solutions. I’ve been enthused about the idea of development on Solana for some years now, and the chance to contribute to the development of a still-nascent DeFi ecosystem, and to play a little role in taking it beyond that nascency, is a very pleasant prospect indeed.

What is Solrise? From platform to ecosystem on Solana.

Solrise is building an ecosystem of products centred around Solana: Solrise Finance, Solrise DEX, and Solflare. As previously reported by U.Today, Solrise’s DEX is the first decentralised exchange on Solana. It becomes operational on the mainnet on September 23, 2021.

Solrise Finance is a non-custodial asset management and trading platform, while Solflare is the community’s primary end-user wallet.
