These tokens included Solana (SOL), Serum (SRM), Raydium (RAY), Oxygen (OXY), Pyth Network (PYTH), and others. Among the key participants in the fundraising round were the executives of Commonwealth Asset Management, Tiger Capital and Golden Tree Asset Management. Investments will be locked for one year.
