  • Arbitrum’s Airdrop announcement triggered an increase in daily transactions on the network before it declined later.
  • Despite the decline, the network has experienced growth in new users, active users, and stablecoins.

The Arbitrum [ARB] network made headlines due to its highly anticipated airdrop, which has finally begun. Although a significant portion of the airdrop remains unclaimed, some network metrics have experienced a decline while others continue to rise.

Realistic or not, here’s ARB’s market cap in BTC terms

Daily transactions spike on Arbitrum

Arbitrum announced on 16 March that its ARB token would be airdropped on 23 March. The post disclosed that 12.75% of the total supply, which was 10 billion according to the tokenomics documents, would be airdropped.

Following the announcement, daily transactions on the network started to experience an upward trend. According to data from Arbiscan, the L2 network had been experiencing an increase in daily transactions since January, which intensified in February.

On the day of the airdrop, 23 March, daily transactions exceeded 2.7 million.

However, as of this writing, the figure decreased and stood at around 1.8 million daily transactions.
