Ethereum (ETH) On-Chain Transaction Volume Hit an All-Time High in December


Ethereum (ETH), currently the third largest cryptocurrency, saw its network hit all-time high on-chain transaction levels in December — excluding the DAO Hack period from 2016.

According to a recent report by market research firm Diar, last month’s on-chain¬†transaction volume hit 115 million ETH, the highest since the network’s genesis.

However, despite the new peak, the total USD value of these transactions has fallen to a 22-month low. This is obviously due to the fact that the price of Ethereum has suffered a roughly 90% decline since the start of 2018

Diar’s report also indicates that the Ethereum network’s total transaction count has dropped from roughly 35 million individual transactions to a projected 15 million in January 2019.

Taken together, the data reveals that more ETH is being moved around in fewer transactions, but the total value of these transactions is significantly depressed thanks to the ongoing bear market.
