Arbitrum’s health check
As per the 18 June tweet, top projects contributed to Arbitrum’s surge, such as Stargate, Circle, Layer Zero, and more.
? Gas fees on @arbitrum blasting off! ?
With soaring total gas fees in the past 24 hours, it's clear that notable projects are witnessing massive adoption and usage. ?

Though a high total gas fee means increased usage, the scenario was different in this case. Arbitrum’s daily fees have been declining for the last 30 days, as per Token Terminal. This caused the network’s revenue to plummet as well over the last month.
If that was not enough, Artemis’ data gave even more cause for concern. As per the charts, ARB’s daily active addresses were declining. The number of daily transactions followed a similar trend.
These metrics suggested that Arbitrum’s adoption and usage deteriorated over the past 30 days.
ARB investors not content
ARB’s performance has also been sluggish, as evident from its price chart. According to CoinMarketCap, ARB’s price has only increased by nearly 1% in the last seven days.
At the time of writing, ARB was trading at $0.9964 with a market capitalization of over $1.2 billion, making it the 36th largest crypto.
A look at ARB’s on-chain metrics gave an understanding of what went wrong. For instance, ARB’s volume declined, which indicated a lower willingness of investors to trade the token. ARB’s 1-week price volatility also plummeted.
However, it was interesting to note that despite the less volatile week, the total number of ARB holders rose, as did the MVRV ratio, which was encouraging.
