XCHWeekly: Week of 3/14/22
Happy Birthday, Chia!
Happy Birthday, Chia! 🎉🎉🎉
On March 19th, Chia’s Mainnet turned one year old. I don’t think I could do justice for what Chia has accomplished this year, and luckily, I don’t have to because Chia dropped a blog post doing just that!
If you read one thing from this week’s newsletter, this should be it: Chia Mainnet Year One.
Price and Trading:
*note that week-over-week CAT transaction stats for the week of 3/4/22 were omitted, as Spacescan adjusted how they measure CAT transactions during this period. We also added LinkedIn followers this week, and will have w/w growth rates starting next week.
*Note: Friday close is 1pm PT. Other stats are pulled Friday between 1pm PT and 10pm PT.

Now the most important part: offers!!!
We have 382 subscribers now, an increase of 5 over last week. We’re still including 0.005 $XCH per new subscriber (for now) so this means I’d usually include offer files for 0.025 $XCH, but to celebrate Chia’s bday, I’ve included a file worth 0.1 $XCH.
