Daily Fee Revenue Surge

An independent Ethereum instructor, Anthony Sassano, shared the daily fee revenue surge of the Ethereum exchange.

According to him, the second-largest Blockchain has delivered up to 28 times more revenue than Bitcoin.

He further referred to the Ethereum layer-2 platforms, such as Arbitrum-1, which has outperformed the Bitcoin network with regard to daily revenue.

This situation was caused by the ongoing frenzy for meme,” he says.

Meanwhile, Ethereum supporters argue seriously that the high gas rate and higher revenue show that more people are now using the network.

However, most people on Crypto Twitter immediately pointed out that the large-scale usage they are pointing towards is just a few thousand users taking their chances on memecoins.
