The blockchain that saw the most transactions recorded on its blockchain over the past day was Ethereum; its 982,103 transfers added was about 186% greater than the transactions recorded on Ripple, which was the runner up for transactions logged on its chain over the past 24 hours. Ethereum has a transaction fee greater than the transaction fee of Ripple, which may indicate that consumers are opting for Ethereum in spite of its higher fees — though it should be noted that Ripple has typically been enjoying more transactions per day on its chain than Ethereum has over the past several weeks. Over the past 24 hours, the largest transaction across all blockchains occurred on Bitcoin, coming in at a value of $207,136,800 US dollars. Bitcoin’s dominance of the crypto market remains intact, with it now accounting for approximately 55.47% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies.
