Tezos ecosystem has seen ‘smart’ contract activity surging over the previous year as the platform attracts NFT undertakings.
Tezos saw lucrative growth within the last year in ‘smart’ contract undertakings and overall adoption. That comes as the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) marketplace witnessed a boom. Moreover, the PoS ecosystem registered impressive activity growth recently amid competition with ETH for NFT markets and minting.
Yesterday’s Coin Metrics data show transactions related to ‘smart’ contracts surged within the last year to over 50,000 in a day from about 10,000/day in 2021 January.
The report highlighted that NFT sites like the generative art network FX Hash witnessing increased interest contributed to Tezos success. Moreover, gaming platform Ubisoft declared Tezos backing for NFTs gaming in December.
High network fees by Ethereum had NFT buyers and creators opting for alternative platforms like Tezos. The ecosystem has a hub for Tezos-based non-fungible token markets that it says are carbon-neutral, boasting fees of not more than a penny.
Non-fungible tokens caused controversy because of environmental problems associated with trading and minting them on Proof-of-Work platforms. Experts have widely touted Tezos as one of the networks to alleviate such concerns.
The platform’s active addresses waver at an ATH of beyond 45,000, whereas active smart contracts surged three times from below 200,000 to above 600,000 within the last year. That reflects a surge in Dapps and NFTs using Tezos.
