When we look into these timescales and the specific features brought towards the core protocol post-activation, a few things begin to become clear. For Delphi
, we saw gas optimizations and storage costs cut. Likewise, we began to witness the rise of several DeFi related projects and launches during this time such as Kolibri
, we witnessed the introduction of an adoption period, sapling, and tickets. With tickets proving quite useful for NFT’s, we began to witness the creation of popular NFT platforms like H=N
, and Kalamint
around this time post-activation.
There’s a trend here that’s beginning to form. That trend centers around the availability of certain features that were either missing or completely non-existent - coming to the core protocol and opening the ecosystem up to applications/projects that couldn’t have been created otherwise.
Thus, with the growth we’ve witnessed thus far and protocol upgrade Granada activated - it would not be faulty to consider the same trend continuing to play out as adoption continues to accelerate and more launches and network effects are beginning to form.
