Insights From Transaction Data

Ripple recorded 1,002,281 transactions on its blockchain over the past 24 hours; that’s the best of the bunch, and about 70% over Ethereum, which had the second-most transactions recorded on its chain. Ripple’s transaction fee was also less than Ethereum’s, suggesting transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. Over the past 24 hours, the largest transaction across all blockchains occurred on Bitcoin, coming in at a value of $20,800,262 US dollars. Bitcoin’s dominance of the crypto market remains intact, with it now accounting for approximately 67.83% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies. Note that Bitcoin’s dominance level has been in a downtrend, stepping between 67.23% to 69.98% over the past two weeks.
