  • Demand for Solana has risen to its highest level since 2022.
  • Its DeFi and NFT have witnessed growth since the beginning of March.

User activity on Layer 1 (L1) blockchain network Solana [SOL] has climbed to a two-year high in March, according to The Block data dashboard

The surge in Solana’s network activity since the beginning of March is attributable to the uptick in memecoin trading activity on the network. 

In the last month, the values of Solana-based meme coins such as Book of Meme [BOME], dogwifhat [WIF], and Pepe [PEPE] have risen by 1561%, 464%, and 157%, respectively.

Solana reaches new milestone

AMBCrypto found that in the past 29 days, the number of unique addresses that have signed transactions across the Solana network has totaled 34.21 million.

This marks a 70% spike from the 20 million active user count recorded in February and the network’s highest monthly count since May 2022.

As the memecoin hype intensified, Solana onboarded a significant number of new users who desired to profit from the meme market rally.

Data from The Block showed that since the beginning of March, the number of unique first signers to transact on the Solana Network has totaled 25.43 million. This represents a 108% growth in new demand for the L1 within a 30-day period. 

According to the on-chain data provider, March’s figure marks an all-time high in the monthly count of new users.
