According to DeFiLlama statistics, the increase in 24-hour costs has allowed friend.tech to outperform other blockchain projects in terms of fees, including Uniswap and Tron, placing just behind the Ethereum network and Lido Finance. Its fees for the previous week were $2.99 million, of which $1.49 million was income.
Friend.tech is a social software connected with X (previously Twitter) that allows users to exchange tokenized shares in one another’s accounts. It runs on Coinbase’s Base Layer 2 chain. Shareholders get access to unique material and exclusive chat rooms. The program has lately acquired traction among Twitter users, as well as acquiring additional high-profile members over the weekend, including Y Combinator CEO Garry Tan and NBA player Grayson Allen.
According to a Dune Analytics dashboard by Crypto Koryo, the platform has logged 65,000 unique share traders and $26 million in trading volume since its beta release.
While friend.tech’s surge to third place in 24-hour fees is impressive, it’s worth emphasizing that the network is now invite-only. The initiative also just announced a seed investment from venture company Paradigm, though the amount was not disclosed.
