Persistence Community Newsletter 16

In 2021 we positioned Persistence and its suite of products to be the beneficiary of institutional capital inflows, as well as providing new opportunities and value to retail participants of the DeFi, NFT and PoS sectors. The momentum is continuing to build entering into 2022.

As we welcomed the new year we continued to push forward following our pSTAKE roadmap, with development and integration progress ahead of schedule. pSTAKE’s TVL continued its solid growth, this month rising to over $50 million for the first time.

$XPRT became more deeply integrated into the broader space as the Persistence network and ecosystem continued to make strides across the board.

Check out the highlights below to catch up on anything you’ve missed.

Major Highlights 🚀

  • Persistence’s 2021 Year in Review was released, synthesizing our journey and progress made throughout the Persistence ecosystem over the past year.
  • Altcoin Psycho introduced a governance proposal to launch an incentivized XPRT/UST pool on Osmosis DEX. We unpacked the proposal in a subsequent Twitter thread.
  • CoinList released an illuminating article diving into the results of the then record-breaking $PSTAKE public sale, which gained over 949,000 unique registrations and sold out in just 45 mins.
  • pSTAKE’s TVL crossed $50 million for the first time, highlighting the growing traction and potential of the pSTAKE protocol.
