Solana DeFi protocol Friktion urged users to withdraw their funds as it begins shutting down its User Platform. At one time the project’s TVL topped $150M.
Friktion UI in ‘Withdrawal-Only’ Mode
According to a Medium post, Friktion switched its UI to “Withdrawal-Only” mode on Jan. 25. Accordingly, the team strongly encouraged users to remove their funds (with no fees) as the sunsetting process begins.
After peaking in the spring, Friktion’s TVL declined as multiple “black swan” events conspired to decimate the entire crypto market in 2022. The final leg down for the protocol occurred in November in conjunction with the spectacular collapse of Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX/Alameda empire, according to DefiLlama.
The TVL for Friktion now stands at less than $5 million, a decline of more than 95% from its peak.
