This will be the last Radix Report of 2021, and what a year it has been. This time last year, we had only just launched eXRD, which was only available on Uniswap, and we had 16k followers generating 200k impressions in a month on Twitter! Even the Radix Report wasn’t a regular feature.
Fast forward a year and the Olympia version of the Radix Public Network is live with over 2.6 billion XRD staked to a wide array of community-run validator nodes, auxiliary services such as Instapass and Instabridge are up and running, XRD has been in the CoinGecko top 50, and we are regularly reaching over 100m impressions across various channels. Oh, and we have over doubled the number of people working on Radix.
While everyone working on Radix is proud of the progress we have made this year, there is still so much left to do. Next week, the Alexandria release will be out, letting developers get their hands on Scrypto to experience the game-changing improvement it brings to building DeFi. There are already many things planned for early next year, and we can’t wait to see what amazing things the Radix community continues to build!
The launch of Scrypto in Alexandria is just also just the beginning. The path to Babylon and beyond, where the DeFi on Radix really begins will be a fantastic journey and one we couldn’t do without the continued support of all of the Radix community and Radvocates. Your support has been the highlight of 2021, and we can’t wait to share all the exciting things coming in 2022 with you all.
Now, over to the department leads!
With less than a week until the Alexandria release, the marketing team has been busy prepping the launch campaigns, content, and ensuring things are ready for the start of 2022! A few highlights of what has been going on recently are:
We’re less than a week away from Alexandria! The dev team has been in a frenzy of activity working on Scrypto and the implementation of the Gateway Service, which will both provide a reference implementation for consuming the Core API and serve as the default source of information for the Wallet and Explorer going forward. Specific items include:
The Turkish community saw a rapid increase in the messages and active users compared to two weeks ago, with 229 people joining the community! Our dear friend Kripto Emre explained the differences between Scrypto and Solidity here and it reached more than 89k views.
The Indonesian community has been quite active with 577 new members - an increase of 19.1% compared to last month. There have been two new videos reaching 5.8k views and 2.4k views. Radix was also covered in different media outlets such as CryptoHarian and IDNTimes. Don’t forget to check amazing infographics about staking, Scrypto, eXRD, and Cerberus.
