There are nearly nine times more daily active users in the Ethereum ecosystem than there were just four years ago – and analysts say the increased demand could push Ethereum to new heights.

According to data collected from exchange-traded cryptocurrency issuer Bitwise, there were on average more than 250,000 daily active users of Ethereum and its scaling solutions Arbitrum and Polygon in the first quarter of 2020, the the lion’s share coming from the Ethereum Layer network. 1 House.

In the first quarter of 2024, this number of daily users – which now also includes Layer 2 networks launched from Optimism, Base and zkSync – reached around 2.25 million, almost nine times larger.

As of June 4, the Ethereum mainnet had 378,000 active users, Polygon had 1.3 million while the other four L2 networks had around 1.5 million active users in total.

Optimism launched in late 2021, while zkSync Mainnet and Base were made available for general access in 2023.

Ethereum’s user count doesn’t seem very large, but it’s part of the roadmap as Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has focused on using L2s as a way to make evolve the main blockchain.

He recently argued that L2s are similar to the sharding concept of the old Eth 2 system and that the layer can also help foster the growth of different “subcultures” within the Ethereum ecosystem.
