MakerDAO co-founder Rune Christensen has submitted a proposal to build the decentralized finance project’s upcoming native chain off of a fork of Solana’s codebase, and not the Virtual Machine despite its long-running ties with Ethereum.

MakerDAO’s native chain or what is currently dubbed as “NewChain,” is part of the fifth and final phase of the MakerDAO “Endgame” upgrade announced in May.
