Insights from the Blockchains
The blockchain that saw the most transactions recorded on its blockchain over the past day was Ripple; its 1,051,452 transfers added was about 89% greater than the transactions recorded on Ethereum, which was the runner up for transactions logged on its chain over the past 24 hours. 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. Over the past 24 hours, the largest transaction across all blockchains occurred on Bitcoin, coming in at a value of $31,038,824 US dollars. Bitcoin’s dominance of the crypto market remains intact, with it now accounting for approximately 64.12% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies. Note that Bitcoin’s dominance level has been in a downtrend, heading between 64.12% to 66.32% over the past two weeks.
