Since the start of 2022 Second Life has been growing steadily showing positive net growth for Private Estates and Linden Owned regions. At least 300 new regions have been added since the start of 2022 which is amazing and hopefully hundreds more will arrive in the months ahead.
The growth again has mostly come from the expansion of the Bellisseria continent (Linden owned regions) which still having a positive effect on the overall grid numbers (Newbrooke expansion etc). More Linden Owned regions are expected to arrive on the grid between now and the end of 2022. It will be interesting to see the total amount later in the year to see the overall growth for 2022.
Since the start of 2021 there has been roughly 2, 000 new regions that have been added on the grid which is pretty cool. By the end of 2023/early 2024 at the current rates I estimate it may reach the 28, 000 regions mark. The big issue would be if the inflation rate goes up the grid may suffer in the winter months ahead (a recession hits or something major). Anything is possible and it’s not clear what impact it could have.
