Sui transactions and active addresses spike
A recent Artemis post unveiled a remarkable surge in transaction activity within the Sui network. Delving deeper into the data, it became apparent that this upward trend began around 4 July, with approximately 400,000 transactions recorded then.
Astonishingly, the number of transactions swiftly soared to over 1 million, and as of this writing, it had surpassed 1.2 million. This surge has propelled the total number of transactions on the network to over 244 million—a staggering increase of over 3,000% within the past 30 days.
Furthermore, the network’s active account count also experienced a noteworthy bump. Around 7 July, the number of active accounts peaked at over 30,000 but has since receded. However, as of this writing, the active account count was over 18,000, surpassing the previous highest recorded number of approximately 13,000 before the spike occurred.
A possible reason for the transaction spike
In addition, according to Artemis, the surge in transactions on the Sui network can be attributed to the recent launch of a captivating game called Game 8192. This exciting game has generated transaction blocks with each play, resulting in a notable increase in transaction activity.
The sheer volume of transactions indicated a substantial influx of enthusiastic players engaging with the game on the network.

However, examining the new account metric showed that the recent developments did not impact it. According to the Sui Explorer, the new account metric appeared relatively stagnant, displaying a flat trend. As of this writing, the number of new accounts recorded was 87, suggesting limited growth in this aspect.
Additionally, data from DefiLlama revealed that the Total Value Locked (TVL) on the platform had not experienced any significant increase. As of this writing, the TVL hovered around $13.1 million, with the chart displaying no discernible signs of substantial movement.
