On the other hand, the Lace team made progress on the multi-delegation portfolio adjustments, fixed some issues related to unregistering a pool, worked on test coverage for Trezor support, and worked on UI/UX workflow for the DApp Store.
Apart from this, the report also mentioned ADA’s latest network statistics. For instance, ADA’s total transactions crossed 75.3 million, and its total number of native tokens reached 8.8 million.
