What to consider when buying Raydium

Cryptocurrencies are volatile assets and there are many factors that can affect their value. Make sure you’re aware of all the risks associated with trading cryptocurrency before you buy. Some of the factors you should consider before buying RAY tokens include the following:
  • Token supply. The maximum supply of RAY is capped at 555 million tokens. 34% of those tokens make up the RAY mining reserve, with emissions scheduled to last for approximately 36 months. A further 30% of the tokens are allocated for partnerships and ecosystem development and another 20% to the Raydium team.
  • Competitors. Raydium is far from the only automated market maker out there, so it’s important to consider what competition Raydium may face from other projects. Kyber Network, Uniswap and Curve are just a few examples of platforms to keep an eye on, so it’s well worth researching the competition before deciding whether you should buy any RAY.
  • Pseudonyms. Raydium’s team is led by several pseudonymous developers – AlphaRay, XRay, GammaRay and so on. While anonymous teams are nothing new in the world of crypto, some people may feel more comfortable knowing the true identities of the people behind the platform.
  • Transaction speed. While many crypto projects are built on the Ethereum blockchain, Raydium is built on Solana. Capable of processing a claimed 50,000 transactions per second, Solana is one of many so-called “Ethereum killers” that have launched in recent years. It’s worth researching not just the Raydium project but also its underlying infrastructure before deciding whether you buy any tokens.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Raydium, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of RAY is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Raydium or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
