Base Blockchain Sparks Crypto Frenzy

Crypto traders are actively seeking profit opportunities within the Base blockchain, driven by a surge in enthusiasm for tokens issued on the platform, as evidenced by various metrics. Base, a blockchain developed by Coinbase on the OP Stack, initially experienced modest growth after its launch for developers in August. However, recent weeks have seen a remarkable transformation, with locked funds on the network skyrocketing from $450 million to nearly $1 billion as of Tuesday. Transactional activity, as observed through blockchain scanners, has surged threefold to over 1.5 million daily transactions, compared to an average of fewer than 500,000 in preceding months. Concurrently, the number of unique wallet addresses has doubled to 65,000, indicating a substantial increase in user adoption.

Observers speculate that the direct accessibility of Base through Coinbase’s exchange and wallet applications could position it as the preferred network for retail users, further fueling the ongoing frenzy. Tokens such as TOSHI, TYBG, NORMIE, and BRETT have seen astonishing price surges of up to 1,300% over the past week, collectively accumulating over $1 billion in trading volumes.

Moreover, tokens associated with technical projects like AERO and SEAM have also witnessed significant gains, contributing to the Base network accruing $1.8 million in fees within a 24-hour period. Concurrently, social sentiment surrounding Base has experienced an uptick, with numerous traders advocating for a reallocation of capital towards this relatively new network.

However, the proliferation of meme coins on Base has led to elevated gas fees, surpassing those observed prior to the Dencun upgrade, as highlighted by Optimism developer Michael Silberling. The surge in transactions, primarily driven by meme coin trading and automated trading bots, has resulted in network congestion and delayed transactions in recent days, underscoring the challenges associated with the platform’s rapid growth and popularity.
