Monthly Wins: Project Ignition, Scrypto Challenges, and Massive TVL Growth! | The Radix Blog | Radix DLT

March was a month of more growth for Radix and its ecosystem, with TVL soaring from $23M to $50M and transactions on the Babylon network surpassing 99,000 within a week

The growth in TVL and transactions is directly related to the success of Project Ignition, the liquidity incentives campaign to onboard more liquidity onto the Radix network; as it stands, the liquidity provided is now at over $10M with a total of over $20M when you take into account the matched XRD. 

The impressive growth Radix experienced in March echoes Piers Ridyard’s comments in his Breakout2024 video. This progress isn’t just a milestone—it’s the dawn of Radix’s breakout year, hinting at the start of more groundbreaking developments and announcements on the horizon.
