A lot has happened since the month of June and one might easily forget the progress which has brought us this far. Hence, it would be nice to go down the memory lane so we can have a swift view of the highlight of the month of May, 2021.

Let’s begin shall we………..

The month of May has been obscure, and the “uproar” seems to have reached an all-time high. Despite the fact that many people are concerned about the uncertain economy, we are more motivated than ever. We did not rest on our laurels after an incredible April; instead, we hastened our progress. Our staked XPRT percentage hit 89 percent in May, and our network topped 5 million users.

Major Points of Interest:

  • pSTAKE, our much-anticipated liquid staking product, is going to be available in June!
  • We’re getting ready to launch our second ecosystem product, pSTAKE, a liquid staking tool designed to make staked assets more liquid.
  • pSTAKE will essentially allow the issue of representative tokens on Ethereum that are backed 1:1 by native assets staked on PoS chains.

Comdex, Persistence’s main product, is an institutional-facing commodities trading and trade financing platform that uses NFTs to put trade invoicing on-chain, transforming the $17 trillion commodity trading sector. Comdex has topped $100 million in transaction volume, a significant milestone — and it’s still growing! Comdex wants to change the global commodity trading business for the better.

The Ecosystem Fund released 4 million XPRT tokens into the ‘circulating’ supply. All of these tokens were staked, greatly enhancing the Persistence network’s security.

The percentage of bonded (staked) XPRT in total supply is now at 89 percent and increasing! With a market cap of over ove, this is the second greatest of all Cosmos ecosystem chains and the highest of all such chains.

Our network recently surpassed 50,000 transactions and the number continues to climb daily. It’s exciting to see immense growth so quickly, especially knowing that acceleration will only continue to increase as new and highly anticipated products like pSTAKE launch on our mainnet very soon. This is just the beginning!

The Guardians of Persistence will be working closely with the Persistence team and fellow ambassadors to accelerate our progress on our mission to usher in a new financial paradigm, while earning monthly rewards in XPRT alongside other benefits!

The Guardians will be responsible for:

  • Engaging with the digital community through social platforms.
  • Using contingency to educate the public about persistence.
