Days after Solana revealed that its network is healthy, Jump Crypto—a trading firm builder—has taken the initiative to improve the network’s reliability and throughput. Jump Crypto plans to revamp a specific segment of Solana’s infrastructure, precisely to make ecosystem slowdowns and outages a thing of the past.
How is the plan expected to play out?
As a part of its re-upped commitment to make the once-hot Solana network great again, Jump Crypto plans to build a validator client (Firedancer)—adding to the resilience of the blockchain concerned. As we know, validators are instrumental in keeping the Proof-of-Stake blockchains healthy. With this client-building plan, Jump plans to boost the overall scalability of the Solana network while lowering the downtime significantly.

In addition to building a validator client, which eventually defeats ecosystem attacks, Jump Crypto also plans on proposing upgrades to Solana’s core software. Kevin Bowers, Chief Science Officer at Jump Crypto, will oversee the entire building process.
Dan Albert— executive director, Solana Foundation—speaks very highly of Jump. He believes that with 20+ years of experience in network scaling and building performant software setups, Jump will be a great contributor to the Solana network. He even believes that Jump’s inputs will help Solana scale further, helping it get back on track as Ethereum’s primary competitor.
