Insights From Transaction Data
Ripple had more transactions recorded on its chain yesterday than any other coin; to be precise, it had about 46% more transactions recorded than Ethereum, which was the runner up for the day in terms of transactions recorded. Ripple has a transaction fee less than the transaction fee of Ethereum, which may indicate that transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. Bitcoin was the coin with the largest transaction across all blockchains yesterday; the largest transaction on its chain was valued at $48,150,836 US dollars. Bitcoin’s dominance of the crypto market remains intact, with it now accounting for approximately 67.39% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies. Note that Bitcoin’s dominance level has been in an unclear trend, moving between 67.23% to 68.8% over the past two weeks.
