Mirror Community Update — February
Dear Mirror Community,
February was an epic month for Mirror, with the GameStop saga bringing in users seeking decentralized alternatives to Robinhood. In terms of numbers, we saw TVL on Mirror first cross 200M UST, then celebrated reaching 500M UST, and now have over 800M in UST now locked on Mirror, all within 3 months of launch! We’ve had a few more events to celebrate, so let’s jump right in.
- Mirror now has over 800M UST in liquidity, collateral, and staked MIR locked on the platform.
- Daily trading volume hits an ATH of $44.42M.
- The first batch of mirrored assets whitelisted by Mirror governance list on Mirror: mirrored BTC, ETH, Goldman Sachs Group, Facebook, and Airbnb.
- Mirrored AMC & GME list on Mirror.
