Amidst recent market news and events over the last few weeks, the Persistence team has kept heads down and carried on with doing what we do best – building and deploying the tech to power our liquid staking ecosystem.
November was a pivotal month for us, as we made important updates to our chain, deployed vital initiatives, and launch new products.
