The highly anticipated network growth will be part of the Babylon upgrade, whose launch date was recently confirmed for 31st July 2023.

Radix price outlook
The positive sentiment has benefitted Radix bulls. Having struggled to break past resistance around $0.08 last week, XRD/USD exploded to an intraday high above $0.12 on early Tuesday.
With a 24-hour trading volume of over $16.9 million and price gain of over 118% in the past 7 days, Radix appears all set for a major swing in coming days. The bullish perspective has the daily RSI and MACD strengthening.
Although there’s been a brief lull in buying that had XRD price retreat towards $0.11, the immediate outlook suggests a pump to March 2022 highs of $0.16 could be the next step.
The long-term Radix price prediction has the XRD token trading higher in the next bull market and beyond. However , for the immediate outlook, the area around $0.074 and $0.061 provides the primary demand zone.
