Cardano (ADA) becomes most widely used blockchain with lowest cost: data
Cardano (ADA) Enthusiasts Shared Statistics: The Blockchain Eclipsed Bitcoin (BTC) By Transaction Volume
As activity on the Cardano (ADA) decentralized financial (DeFi) ecosystem increases, the aggregate volume of all transactions recorded on it rose to new heights.
Cardano (ADA) Daily Transaction Volume Pushes New Highs
An anonymous Cardano (ADA) enthusiast stopping by @Haskellion on Twitter has shared statistics from Messari’s terminal. It displays the net volume of transactions processed by this or that blockchain in the last 24 hours and the total fees collected.

According to Messari data, Cardano (ADA) eclipsed Bitcoin (BTC) by USD-denominated transaction volume in 24 hours. Cardanians sent $33.45 billion in equivalent, while Bitcoiners sent $33.27 billion.
At the same time, the Bitcoin (BTC) network generated 23x more costs than Cardano (ADA): for Bitcoin, this statistic reached $860,000, while for Cardano (ADA) it was $38,000.
To provide context, Cardano’s main smart contract competitor, Ethereum (ETH), has been charging its customers $14.7 million in fees in the past 24 hours.
Cardano-Ergo DEX on the verge of mainnet launch
Most likely, this increase can be attributed to the influx of liquidity into the ecosystem of Cardano-based decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols.
As previously described by U.Today, Cardano’s DEX, AdaSwap, is now endorsed by Israeli actress Gal Gadot, an award-winning world cinema superstar.
Another Cardano-based DeFi protocol, ErgoDEX — which is set to bridge the Cardano (ADA) and Ergo blockchains — is getting closer to the mainnet release.
