The volume of stratis decreased because of the bull market but what was really in the way of stratis going up was something that moves everything. Marketing.
Yes its the soul of any business. They had their reasons to start doing this right now and the only reason that I can figure out is a path more clear. They already know their limitations and possibilities, with this, they got more confident. The new roadmap brings us my conclusion. Lots of projects in this Q4, masternode.. you take this + marketing (twitter+CEO+crypto pharao lol) and with some time we will see only one thing getting closer and closer. The moon.
Of course that, they need to do everything they are saying, I believe they will.
