ETH Volumes Top $119.5 Billion in Q3: High-Risk Dapps Dominate Tron Network

A recent report says total Dapps transaction volumes reached $125 Billion in Q3 2020, a figure which is $113 billion higher than in Q2 2020. From these volumes, the Ethereum blockchain accounts for 96% or $119.5 billion of the total created value with the majority of this being attributed to the DeFi ecosystem.

Compiled by Dappradar, the report says the Ethereum blockchain was able to achieve this feat between ongoing concerns about the networks’ high fees. According to the report, “at peak moments transaction costs were more than 400 Gwei.”

Meanwhile, the number of daily active wallets on Ethereum “increased by 154% compared to Q2 2020” and as expected, the DeFi and DEX categories grew “from 12,800 daily active wallets to 50,200 in Q3 2020.”
