Ethereum by the Numbers — April 2020

Ethereum by the Numbers — April 2020

Explore the latest network milestones, DeFi activity, enterprise blockchain trends, Ethereum 2.0 mechanics, and more.

Last month, value transfer on Ethereum reached parity with the Bitcoin blockchain, due in large part to increasing demand for stablecoins. Enterprise interest in public chain development is growing, particularly with the buzz around the Baseline Protocol, Hyperledger Besu, and continued progress on advanced privacy and permissioning capabilities to meet institutional needs. In anticipation of Ethereum 2.0 Phase 0 in coming months, fully-configured Eth2 testnets have gone live, clients are syncing, and the ecosystem has been producing a bunch of resources to help people get educated around staking and validation. With the first-ever Virtual NY Blockchain Week just around the corner, these network milestones will certainly be top of mind as the community rallies to boost DeFi, onboard enterprises, and make the first phase of Eth2 a reality in 2020.
