September 23, 2023

Base, Coinbase’s layer 2 network, has experienced a significant increase in Total Value Locked (TVL), reaching approximately $397.32 million in just a month and a half since its launch in August. This surge has positioned Base ahead of Solana, with a current TVL of $358.96 million. In the last 30 days alone, Base’s TVL has grown by an impressive 97.21%, while Solana has seen a decrease of 9.64% in the same period. Notably, this growth has occurred despite a brief outage in September.

Key Blockchain Projects on Base

Aerodrome Finance and Friend.tech, two native projects built on the Base network, have played a crucial role in its rapid expansion. Aerodrome Finance, a decentralized exchange (DEX), currently holds a TVL of $97.83 million. The platform allows users to deposit liquidity and earn AERO tokens, and experienced a surge of $150 million in a single day on August 31. Friend.tech, a decentralized social media (DeSo) app, follows closely with a TVL of $36.53 million. The platform enables users to tokenize their social networks and has seen a remarkable growth of 540% in the past month.

Increase in Daily Transactions

Base has also achieved an all-time high in daily transactions, surpassing chains like Optimism and Arbitrum. On September 14, Base recorded 1.88 million transactions, while its competitors managed about 880,000 on the same day. Although daily transactions have slightly decreased to around 908,000 as of September 22, Base’s transaction ATH remains unbroken.
