All about Nairobi Protocol

One of the most notable features of the Nairobi Protocol is that it increases the number of transactions per second (TPS) for specific manager operations by up to eight times. The proposal improves the gas cost model for manager operations’ signature verification by making it dependent on the payload size and cryptographic curve being utilized.

The Nairobi Protocol further improves the Mempool module to speed up consensus by more effectively validating and propagating consensus operations. If the proposal is voted in by the community, an upgrade to Octez v17.0 or later will be necessary to participate in consensus. Tezos will launch its testnet soon. 

Nairobi announced weeks after Mumbai activation

Tezos took little time in going ahead with its plans, as the proposal of the Nairobi Protocol was released in the same month it activated the Mumbai Protocol. For starters, with the activation of the Mumbai Protocol, Smart Rollups got introduced, which is a layer 2 scaling solution built directly into the protocol.

Tezos’ state since Mumbai activation

Since the activation of the Mumbai Protocol, Tezos’s social volume has remained consistently high. This indicated its increased popularity in the crypto community. However, it was surprising to see that despite the announcement of Nairobi, the network’s development activity plummeted over the last few days.

Things are looking bullish for XTZ

Mumbai also had a positive impact on the network’s native token, as several of its on-chain metrics looked promising. For instance, XTZ’s weighted sentiments improved considerably, reflecting the crypto community’s confidence in the token.

Its trading volume also remained relatively high, which reflected investors’ interest. On top of that, XTZ’s demand in the futures market was high, as evident from its Binance funding rate.
