Monthly Wins: Post-Babylon Phase Two, Surging Wallet Downloads, Maya Integration, and More! | The Radix Blog | Radix DLT

Hello, Radvocates. April was a busy month for the Radix Community! 

Maya Protocol voted to approve the proposed integration with Radix, which will improve cross-chain liquidity. Alchemy Pay also integrated Radix into its platform, further increasing access to XRD worldwide. Plus, the Radix Babylon Ledger App is no longer in Developer mode, making securing your XRD on your Ledger device easier. 

Since Babylon went live, Radix Wallet downloads have surpassed 30,000, and there have been over 1M Transactions on mainnet. Another major update was released for the Radix Wallet: v1.5.0, which brought new features like viewing the USD value of your Radix portfolio and more advanced Transaction History and filters, allowing you to have a more detailed view of your recent transactions. 

Here’s an overview of the past month 👇
