The goal for Maple is to bring Maple Solana and on-chain capital market infrastructure so it can scale to the Solana ecosystem and address financing needs on the network. Maple is expecting hte move to drive strong activity on Solana with the head of Maple Solana Quinn Barry saying:
“Over the next three months, we expect to bring over $300 million of liquidity to Solana. We will soon welcome another credit expert to the platform, and share more details on how liquidity protocols are already using Maple’s infrastructure as a launchpad onto Solana.”

Maple Solana will also issue the SYrUP governance token in 2022 that will be analog to Maple’s MPL governance token on Ethereum. The X-Margin serves as the first pool delegate which has $34 million in total cash but no active loans and deposits. By the end of the year, X-Margin expects the pool to contrl $300 million.
