In later November, a team behind the Serum exchange said that the project became defunct due to the collapse of Alameda and FTX, which were one of the largest backers of Solana's products.

The team noted that the crypto community is already working on a new fork dubbed OpenBook. Led by @m_schneider, the forked version of Serum is currently seeking more liquidity as the exchange already has over $1 million of daily volume.
