Ethereum’s transactions and volume analysis

According to the transaction data from DefiLlama, there was a noticeable increase in the number of active Ethereum users that correlated with a surge in transactions.

The transaction chart indicated that on the same day as the spike in active users, the number of transactions surged to over 1.6 million. Prior to this surge, the transaction count typically ranged from 800,000 to 1 million.

Notably, this peak marked the highest transaction volume recorded so far this year.

However, similar to the active users, the transaction count has since decreased. As of this writing, the number of transactions was approximately 1 million.

Interestingly, a review of the volume trend revealed that it remained relatively unaffected by the spike in active users and transactions. It displayed a stable, non-spiky pattern and currently stands at around $754 million.
