Number Of Active Ethereum Wallets Now Surpasses Bitcoin, Data Showa – Benzinga – Benzinga


The number of active addresses (wallets) on the Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) blockchain now exceeds the number of active Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) addresses.

What Happened: According to BitInfochart data, the number of active addresses on Bitcoin’s blockchain crashed by about 60% over the past six weeks, from 1.3 million to roughly 500,000.

Ethereum data, on the other hand, shows that the network saw over 200,000 more active wallets than Bitcoin on June 27: Bitcoin had over 462,000 active addresses while Ethereum had over 689,000, over 49% more.

What It Means: Active addresses included on BitInfoCharts are addresses that sent or received at least one transaction on the blockchain on any given day.

In late June, Bitcoin’s active addresses have fallen to their lowest level since February.

Ethereum’s active addresses, on the other hand, increased by more than 9% over the past week and reached 700,000, but are still significantly down from their early March peak of 1.1 million.

Why It Matters: According to BlockchainCenter data, Ethereum also processes 6.61 times more transactions than Bitcoin, but the value of those transactions is currently equivalent to only over 91% of Bitcoin’s — down from a peak of over 227% reported in May.

Lastly, Ethereum’s miners enjoy a transaction fee spending that’s estimated to be 4.6 times higher than Bitcoin’s, down from 19.9 times in May.

Price Action: The leading cryptocurrency was trading at $33,356 at press time, losing a.17% overnight, while Ethereum stood at $2,063, down 3.38%.
