Passage Testnet: Final Recap

Passage Testnet Wrap Up

Testnet got off to a hot start as its debut coincided beautifully with massive BTC & ETH inflows that brought levels of volatility unseen in months. Things haven’t slowed down much since our first update blog after week 1, as markets continued to swing throughout November. Break Out traders had plenty of opportunities to profit, with prices frequently experiencing big moves to the upside, but there were some spots for tactical use of Stay In Passages as well. With the testnet period coming to an end earlier this week, it’s time to take a look at the final metrics and announce our trading competition winners.

Usage Metrics

  • Trading Volume — 1308 ETH ($2.4m)
  • Total Orders — 3089
  • Total Trades — 1466
  • Trading Competition Entrants — 363

Since our last update at the one week mark, cumulative Passage trading volume nearly tripled from 483 ETH up to 1,308. Total orders and total trades experienced similar growth, with orders up from 1086 to 3089 and trades rising from 481 to 1466. Overall, momentum from the initial influx of traders in week 1 sustained quite well over the remainder of the testnet period. This continuous growth is a strong indication of both adoption and retention for Passage users and an exciting sign ahead of mainnet deployment.
