Realistic or not, here’s XTZ’s market cap in BTC’s terms
The Mumbai proposal will bring with it several new features that would drastically improve the network’s capabilities and offerings. For instance, the upgrade will reduce the block time to 15 seconds.
This time reduction will be achieved by fully deploying improved pipelining. Moreover, in Mumbai, tickets can be transferred between user accounts and not just to and from smart contracts and rollups.

Ledger hardware wallets are popular among NFT collectors and artists who want to protect their collections and artworks. Tezos NFTs will now be supported by the Ledger Live app thanks to Objkt integration.

How has XTZ been?
Over the last week, XTZ’s price action aligned with investors’ interest as it registered gains. As per CoinMarketCap, XTZ’s price increased by more than 8%, and at press time, it was trading at $1.12 with a market capitalization of over $1 billion.
XTZ’s development activity also increased over the last few weeks, thanks to the planned upgrades. Positive sentiments around XTZ remained pretty consistently high, reflecting the community’s trust in the token.
XTZ managed to be in demand in the futures market as its Binance funding rate was relatively on the higher side. However, XTZ’s volatility has reduced drastically over the last few days, which might halt the token’s ongoing uptrend.
