Data-based conclusion

In July, we see an interesting trend as the overall performance of the Ethereum blockchain grows. We can observe an increase in all indicators such as the number of transactions, the deployment of new smart contracts and even the average number of unique active crypto wallets.

But at the same time, the price of gas to the network has decreased significantly. This suggests that there are no significant events that require fast transaction mining. Whether this may indicate the beginning of a trend reversal, only time will tell.
