Tachyon Protocol (IPX)’s VPN service, recently achieved another feather in its cap by crossing the 1M MAU mark in August 2020. This number is now at 1.2M+ for this month. MAU (or, Monthly Active Users) is a performance metric used to indicate the number of unique visitors or users in the last month for a technology platform. A high MAU number suggests healthy user engagement. With close to 2M total users on its platform and more than 1.2M MAU, the MAU/total user ratio is more than 0.6 which is also indicative of the high stickiness and involvement of end-users. This means that out of every 5 persons who have ever used Tachyon VPN, 3 people used it as recently as the last month i.e. 3 out of every 5 users is an active user. As of the time of writing, the platform currently has 1.7k+ nodes handling 1.9M+ total users.
The VPN’s user growth figures have been well above the targeted numbers as per the project roadmap. After last month’s release of Node 2.0, Tachyon is now targeting the release of IPX Payment over the next few months. IPX Payment is the last piece of Tachyon’s bandwidth marketplace. It will be developed on the Fermat contract of the V Systems blockchain platform. The details of this payment system haven’t been revealed yet. According to informed sources, IPX Payment and Staking will be integrated into Tachyon VPN which will enable direct bandwidth trading with IPX between Node Providers and normal VPN users. Some other updates that are in the long term plans include Node Manager2.1 and the Windows version. These developments are expected to increase MAU numbers even further.
