After years of development 3 Months ago Liquid (the side chain project) was announced. If you look at https://liquid.horse/ you can find the following statistics as of right now:
Sidechain Stats Genesis Block September 27, 2018 Sidechain
Sidechain Blocks 125344 / 223.9 MB
Expected / Missing Blocks 144622 / 19278 (15.38%)
Entry (peg-in) Transactions 96
Exit (peg-out) Transactions 30
Liquid Federation Wallet 25.26 BTC / $97,905 USD
125k blocks of which 97% are empty but with a memory footprint of 223 MB of data to store 3458 transactions within the sidechain seems pointless at this time.
When liquid was announced several exchanges and services announced to run a liquid Server.
- Is it just taking time for those players to integrate liquid properly?
- When will this take off?
