According to the proposal created by Nomadic Labs and six others, Kathmandu was aimed at scaling the Layer-one (L1) protocol. Additionally, the challenge of pipeline validation and testnet governance problems would be a thing of the past.

Before the upgrade, Tezos’ co-founder, Kathleen Breitman, spoke to Emily Change of Bloomberg about the upgrade. According to her, upgrading more than ten times was not a problem for the Tezos network because the protocol was developed to upgrade itself.

Started from the bottom; now we stayed put

Since the upgrade activation, XTZ seemed to have reacted positively. According to CoinMarketCap, the native token of the security-focused internet of the future had climbed 4.15% in the last 24 hours. At press time, XTZ was trading at $1.52.
