  • Among these, Base has emerged as the primary contributor, handling approximately 57% of the transactions. Following closely are Arbitrum and Optimism, processing 31% and 11%, respectively.
  • This substantial uptick not only highlighted the growing adoption and demand of Layer 2 scaling solutions but also that ‘Base Spring’ has arrived as per ITB’s previous analysis.
  • Just last week, Base’s transaction volume climbed above $1.6 billion million for the first time even surpassing already established players like Optimism as a result.
  • Besides, Base has experienced a notable increase in network activity over recent months, primarily fueled by a growing frenzy surrounding memecoins.
  • According to data compiled by DefiLlama data, the total value locked (TVL) on the Base network soared to a record high of $1.5 billion on April 9th, reflecting a whopping 235% rise since the start of the year, driven by the influx of meme coin frenzy into the network.
  • Over the past couple of months, Layer 2 networks have noted significant expansion, with Dencun playing a pivotal role in their adoption.
  • VanEck analysis even predicted that these scaling solutions could potentially reach a $1 trillion market capitalization by 2030.
