Tezos Contract Calls
The monthly amount of contract calls on Tezos mainnet crossed the 100,000 barrier in February, which is an increase of 37%. In the past 9 months these metrics have continued to show substantial growth.
Contract calls are smart contract interactions, so these metrics are a great way to show on-chain growth in adoption.
Developer activity both on mainnet and on the two testnets that are currently live, showed a huge spike in developer interest in February.
An average there were 2,400 contract deployments per day with 480 total deployments to mainnet in February. In January this was an average of 930 deployments per day and the month before we saw 700 daily deployments.
This month’s growth comes down to an increase of 258% compared to last month. Very positive for the future growth of the ecosystem as a whole.
1,000,000 Funded Accounts
As expected, this milestone has been reached. In February, Tezos broke the barrier of 1,000,000 funded accounts.
