Coinbase’s Layer 2 Blockchain Base Sets New Transaction Record
Coinbase’s layer 2 blockchain, Base, has achieved a significant milestone, registering a record-breaking number of daily transactions, surpassing its competitors Arbitrum and Optimism combined, according to data from IntoTheBlock.
The platform witnessed 1.88 million transactions on Thursday, reflecting a surge in activity that can be partly attributed to a new social application called FriendTech, instead of decentralized finance (DeFi) applications or non-fungible token (NFT) marketplaces.
Lucas Outumuro, head of research at IntoTheBlock, highlighted the interesting trend, stating, “Interestingly, it is not decentralized finance (DeFi) applications nor non-fungible token (NFT) marketplaces driving the surge in Base’s activity. Instead, a significant portion of usage can be attributed to a new social application, FriendTech.”
FriendTech, a decentralized social network platform built on Base, dubs itself as “the marketplace for your friends.” It also experienced increased usage in recent weeks, with its daily transactions reaching an all-time high of 529,000 transactions.
