As NFT Trading Picks Up, Ethereum Gas Fees Ascend

Glassnode revealed in its weekly newsletter on Monday that "The incremental nature of the gas demand suggests an early resurgence of network activity may be underway."

Here's What We Know:

  • Ethereum's gas prices for transactions has risen from approximately 10-20 gwei to 38 gwei.

  • Resurgence in NFT trading plays a significant part on the demand for gas. As a result, gas used for Ethereum transactions have increased by 97% for the past two months.

  • This change in fee signals a slow return to form for the network's fee market.

  • Blur, OpenSea's largest rival, has also noticed a surge in demand for block space, resulting in increased fees for validators and more ETH being burnt via EIP1559.

  • Some of the biggest drivers of NFT activity include new projects from blue-chip projects, including BAYC's Dookey Dash game and Doodles 2.
