Stacks Monthly Report - March 2023

March 2023 was a massive month for the Stacks ecosystem. In this monthly report, we'll review of some of the highlights and milestones achieved, and what this means for this growing Bitcoin layer.

March has been nothing short of an absolute banger for the Stacks ecosystem. With a whopping 23% increase in value for the Stacks token ($STX) in just 31 days, and an impressive 350% growth over the past year, the Stacks community has reason to celebrate. And while much of this growth can be attributed to the hype surrounding Bitcoin Ordinals, it's worth noting the other factors that contributed immensely to the ecosystem's success.

Let's take a closer look at some of the key highlights from March.
