What Does Transaction Data Tell Us?
The blockchain that saw the most transactions recorded on its blockchain over the past day was Ripple; its 869,845 transfers added was about 30% greater than the transactions recorded on Ethereum, which was the runner up for transactions logged on its chain over the past 24 hours.

The largest transaction in the cryptocurrency space yesterday, coming in at a value of $64,792,964 occurred on Bitcoin’s chain. Bitcoin’s dominance of the crypto market remains intact, with it now accounting for approximately 68.95% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies. It’s dominance has been in an uptrend over the past two weeks, moving from 67.82% to 68.95%.
