Ecosystem Updates

Let’s get into some analysis, news, and data with Ethereum Daily in this newsletter!

Ethereum On-chain Data Highlights

More than 14 Million $ETH is being staked in the deposit contract – over 11.6% of all circulating ETH

The current circulating ETH is 120M, whereas 14M is locked. It can be seen in the data provided by Nansen that Lido received more than 4.23M stETH. Since The Merge had been conducted successfully on 15th September, the more attention from investors are easily observed.

The Merge is one of the most significant and anticipated upgrades in the history of Ethereum, and although in the long-term its impact will be felt by everyone, in the near term some folks will need to take action to be fully prepared.

The Merge represents the joining of the existing execution layer of Ethereum (the Mainnet we use today) with its new proof-of-stake consensus layer, the Beacon Chain. 

It eliminates the need for energy-intensive mining and instead secures the network using staked ETH. 

A truly exciting step in realizing the Ethereum vision – more scalability, security, and sustainability.

Ethereum is either deflationary or inflationary block by block. The chart shows real numbers for how many days has burn has been larger than PoS issuance since we had both.

The transition from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to Proof-of-Stake (PoS) will happen when a pre-announced total difficulty is reached by the chain. This is different from other forks which usually occur at a certain scheduled block number.

Though being predticed to be inflationary, ETH goes deflationary over a 24 hour period with 195 ETH ($258K) taken out of the total supply

Uniswap is currently doing more transactions than Cardano

Ethereum Weekly Recap Week 40 (29/9 - 5/10) - 5

Not only does Cardano do less than one transaction per second…

Uniswap does substantially more transactions than Cardano

In fact, Uniswap is only the biggest Decentralized Exchange (DEX) in the whole Ethereum blockchain network. Therefore, it can be seen only one D-app is doing more transactions than a whole blockchain network – Cardano.

To sum up, from the on-chain statistics, it can be seen that there are many good signals for users to accumulate for joining the Ethereum ecosystem. In fact, it cannot be denied that Ethereum has proved itself in the cryptocurrency market since 2016 to be the top leading coin.
