Brief Introduction & History of Zeta

Founded in 2021 by a team of trading and software development professionals, Zeta Markets is a pioneering crypto perpetuals exchange on Solana. Zeta distinguished itself early on by winning the second ever Solana hackathon, competing against more than 13,000 teams. This success accelerated the transition of Zeta Markets from a mere proof of concept to a leading decentralized exchange.

In December 2021, Zeta Markets announced a $8.5M strategic funding round backed by renowned industry players including Electric Capital, Jump Crypto, Wintermute and Solana Ventures, among others. In May 2024, Zeta Markets closed a new $5M strategic round led by Electric Capital, with participation from DACM, Airtree Ventures, Selini Capital, and prominent angel investors.

As of May 2024, Zeta Markets has facilitated trading volumes exceeding $6 billion, serving more than 100,000 MAU, and these numbers continue to grow. The vision of Zeta Markets is ambitious yet clear: to place the power of permissionless, non-custodial trading into the hands of every trader in the world.
