Fantom: Can rising interest in inscriptions boost the network
- Inscription transactions make up over 60% of Fantom transactions.
- The surge in transactions is yet to be reflected in fees.
Fantom [FTM] has recently joined the inscription zone due to a rise in user activity. The rise has resulted in an increased number of inscriptions on the network.
Recent data also showed that it has become the latest Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) network to experience a rise in inscriptions.
Fantom inscription transactions on the rise
A Dune Analytics chart analysis showed a previous low volume of transactions, with a sudden rise observed in hourly inscriptions. The chart showed that the number of inscriptions reached its highest point in the past four days on 19th December.
The chart indicated an hourly inscription volume of 74,017, the highest recorded so far. Also, two transactions of over 70,000 inscriptions per hour were observed before the day concluded.
While the growth in inscription transactions on Fantom was evident, its volume was still low. This was particularly so when compared to other EVM networks highlighted by the Dune Analytics data.
However, it was still significant, representing a good portion of the overall transaction volume.
Inscriptions take half of overall Fantom transactions
The chart showed that inscription transactions accounted for nearly 64% of the total transactions on the network.
Additionally, this represented the third-highest percentage of inscription transactions, with Avalanche leading with over 90% in comparison.
Impact on fees
Despite the notable increase in transaction volume and the percentage it represents, inscription transactions are yet to lead to a rise in fees on the Fantom network.
According to data showing the gas spent on inscriptions, the highest hourly fee observed was $21. At the time of this writing, the fee was $2.

Furthermore, a look at the fee trend on DefiLlama showed that the recent increase in inscription transactions has yet to influence fees.
The fee trend displayed a normal pattern, and over the last 24 hours, the recorded fees were less than $2,000.
