Holding fast onto the influx of investors, the Tezos (XTZ) is recording solid growth thanks to the network’s regular updates. It has been registering growth in terms of smart contract addresses and active addresses. The number of Tezos smart contracts, between January 2021 and January 2022, has tripled from about 200 to over 600, as per CoinMetrics’ State of the Network report.
The rise highlights the constant activity within the Tezos ecosystem. Analysts attribute this to soaring NFTs activity and the advent of blockchain gaming. This growth reflects on the network’s active addresses, which shot past the 45,000 mark in January 2022. Another reason may be the reduction of smart contract fees by as much as 75%. And this in turn has attracted new projects in decentralized finance (DeFi).
Moreover, users have been attracted to a new feature on Tezos – OneOf, which is an audio NFT platform. It is based on Tezos and has partnerships with major brands, and recently announced a collaboration with the Warner Music Group. There is much going on in the Tezos network.
