  • Stablecoins account for the majority of transactions in the Ethereum network.
  • With BTC and XRP in bullish terrain, Ether is acting as lag for the Top 3.
  • Cryptos’ technical prospects are worsening with every passing day, consuming capital without moving upwards.

The crypto board is waiting for Ethereum to break higher and launch the market in the race for new all-time highs.

Precisely, the Ethereum network stands out in recent days because of the dominance that stablecoins have acquired in the total volume of transactions that run on the network sponsored by Vitalik Buterin.

According to data available on decentralized Exchanges such as dex.watch, the tokens that topped the Top 5 by volume (ETH) in the past 24 hours are Dai Stablecoin (8216 ETH), Synthetix (3121 ETH), Unibright UBT (ETH 1862), USDC (1726 ETH) and sUSD (1037 ETH). 

During the same period, the network has transacted only 601 Ethers

The value of a Dex network weights its level of usage, and the more projects using that same network, the higher the stability and reliability. The collateral for all of these Defi applications is the Ether, in this case, modelled as the utility base for a business that supports millions of dollars in transactions per day.
