Achieved. You can use stacks-dump or status.sh to inspect the chain history to see for yourself that there were no periods of inactivity or periods of competing deep forks.

1,162,624 - A 30% increase from Q12021. This is the overall reach of STX mentions on Telegram.

Two chapters have deployed their own Stacking pools so far. The remaining Chapters are brainstorming new solutions in light of more complicated regulations in their regions.

The Stacking APY is the result of many variables - we decided to deprioritize this effort after seeing mining was healthy. Going forward, we'll primarily focus on increasing smart contract usage on the network as a way to boost Stacking rewards.
