  • For those wanting to use Instapass and Instabridge to convert eXRD to XRD, the first step is to register with Instapass when it goes live on June 30th. Instabridge will then go live on July 7th to facilitate converting eXRD to XRD. We are working with partners and exchanges, such as Bitfinex, who will also be offering the ability to swap between eXRD and XRD. Again, there is no rush to do this as eXRD will remain as the “wrapped” form of XRD on Ethereum so you can keep your eXRD if you prefer.
  • The Cerberus infographic series has been getting published on the blog, with the first six chapters now live. The final chapter will be live on July 25th, and we will then release the full infographic! It’s been fantastic to see the community response to the infographic, with many learning further details about what makes our Cerberus consensus algorithm so special. There have already been over 4000 views on the infographic in the first ten days it’s been live!
  • After the bootstrapping phase of the Olympia mainnet launch, the first network emissions will begin to be distributed to those delegating stake to validator nodes on the network. As there have been a lot of questions about how staking and emissions will work, we have released a staking guide. Additional details and articles covering staking (and much more) will also be going live on learn.radixdlt.com in the coming days, along with a revamped style for the knowledge base.
  • With over 100 submissions, the first Radix swag contest went exceedingly well! The winning entry went live on the updated Radix Store and sold out in 5 minutes. There are still the normal collections available, with more being added soon.
  • As expected, the lead-up to Olympia and the ramp-up of marketing activity has led to increased engagement and awareness metrics. Website traffic is up 23%, with new users growing 18.7% in the last 14 days. This has been matched with increased average session time, a 65% increase in daily blog visits and a 52% increase in users from Twitter. The Radix Twitter has also seen engagement increase by 32%, mentions go up 42%, and total impressions increase nearly 200% in the last 14 days!
