SundaeSwap finally launched its mainnet on January 20, after a series of tests. It is believed that the DEX, which has generated great anticipation and enthusiasm in the Cardano community, will allow users to trade, stake and lend tokens for a negligible fee.

Some users who tested the platform at launch complained that they could not trade on the site. This failure later turned out to be a result of network congestion on the platform.

Regarding this, Mateen Motavaf, CEO of SundaeSwap, explained that the problem is under control. Input Output Hong Kong, parent company of Cardano blockchain, also stated that the problem is caused by “Heavy Cardano network load.”

To further put users at ease, after launch, the app team held a Twitter Spaces AMA to address the issues users are experiencing.

SundaeSwap Users Claim Network Problems Continue

However, SundaeSwap users claimed that the network problems persisted even 48 hours after launch.

On Twitter, a user @ZWBJ1 wrote that he felt scammed for waiting 12-16 hours for his tokens to be transferred from one wallet to another. Another user said he was misled and lost $70k due to slow transaction speed.

SundaeSwap announced via a tweet that it has added a new feature to help users decide whether to cancel their orders.

SundaeSwap TVL is already over $80 million

Despite the difficulties encountered during the mainnet launch of SundaeSwap, available data from DeFiLlama showed that the total value of assets locked in the ecosystem is currently worth $82 million, ultimately leading to 86.6% growth of DeFi TVL on the Cardano blockchain.
