What Does Transaction Data Tell Us?
The blockchain that saw the most transactions recorded on its blockchain over the past day was Ethereum; its 691,422 transfers added was about 64% greater than the transactions recorded on Ripple, which was the runner up for transactions logged on its chain over the past 24 hours. Ethereum’s transaction fee is greater than Ripple’s transaction fee; in and of itself, this may imply consumers are opting for Ethereum in spite of its higher fees. The largest transaction in the cryptocurrency space yesterday, coming in at a value of $192,917,232 occurred on Bitcoin’s chain. The circulating value of all Bitcoins now comes in at approximately $ 137.52 billion US dollars — which means Bitcoin accounts for about 55.36% of the entire cryptocurrency market. Bitcoin’s share of the entire cryptocurrency market has hovered very closely around the 55% level for this past week.
