BANGKOK, April 8, 2024 -- Velo, in collaboration with its partner Lightnet, is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Solana Foundation for its Laos Gold Project. Solana will act as the blockchain settlement layer and Velo will be the backbone infrastructure layer as well as the designated clearing house for Laos' digital gold transactions under the Gold Project. This combination will ensure efficient and secure processing of transactions on the blockchain.



Velo plays a crucial role in facilitating the overall operation and reliability of the clearing house function. It is responsible for validating and finalizing transactions securely, upholding trust, and ensuring the smooth execution of contractual obligations between buyers and sellers settled on Solana's blockchain.


The MOU also includes a robust bridging mechanism to enhance interoperability between Solana's L1, Nova, and EVM-compatible chains. This initiative aligns with the blockchain principle of interconnectedness, promoting connectivity and accessibility of digital assets across different blockchain networks. The collaboration marks a significant advancement, unlocking new possibilities for asset transfers, liquidity provision, and Web3 activities, meeting the rising demand for cross-chain transactions and contributing to the growth of the Web3 ecosystem.


Additionally, this agreement entails the implementation of comprehensive liquidity management protocols. These protocols include the development and maintenance of on-ramp and off-ramp facilities for assets on the Solana blockchain, further strengthening the framework for digital asset transactions. The goal is to roll this out in Southeast Asia and then globally.


This strategic initiative paves the way for Digital Gold to expand its user base, offering greater accessibility, particularly for users seeking a stable and secure store of value. Leveraging Solana's technical expertise, this collaboration promises users a seamless integration of investment and financial opportunities in the evolving digital landscape.
