Persistence March 2024 Update

Avatar photo

In March 2024, the Persistence One ecosystem saw remarkable growth, underscored by a surge in TVL hitting $16M+ and liquidity, alongside a record monthly volume on Dexter.

Key initiatives like the introduction of newer stkTokens on pSTAKE, liquidity pools on Dexter and incentivization programs significantly enhanced the ecosystem’s dynamism.

Notably, Persistence One announced its plan to adopt Bitcoin Security through Babylon, unlocked the potential of $1 trillion+ Bitcoin to empower the chain. Additionally, the introduction of Restaking in Cosmos on Persistence One will be one step closer towards our mission to maximize yield and security through liquid staking and restaking.

March 2024 has been one of the very exciting months, with our vision being clearer than ever and our commitment towards making Persistence One the liquid staking and restaking hub.

  1. A proposal for creating XPRT/SHD pool on Dexter was initiated.

  4. A proposal for Incentivization of Dexter pools with XPRT and PSTAKE rewards for March 2024 was initiated.
