According to a new analysis by Bankless, Ethereum’s revenues increased by 46% in the first quarter of 2022, from $1.6 billion to $2.4 billion. According to the research, the burning mechanism withdrew around 87 percent of the earnings, or $2.1 billion, from the circulating supply of ETH.

The network’s EIP-1559 upgrade, which took place in August 2021, enabled the token burning mechanism. The ETH network’s inflation rate — a metric that quantifies the net change in the quantity of ethereum tokens — decreased from 1.10 percent to 0.51 percent in Q1 as a result of this token burning process.

According to the data, the average number of daily active addresses increased from 507,662 to 529,018. The amount of staked ETH, on the other hand, increased by 111% from 5.2 million to 10.9 million. The report says the following about this metric:

Only the trading volumes of Opensea and Looksrare, the “two largest generalist NFT marketplaces.” “There were 226,176 unique wallets to either buy or sell an NFT” during the time period under consideration.

According to the research, the number of wallet addresses holding an ERC721 token. That’s, the token standard used to create NFTs — increased by 306% from 981,315 to 3.98 million.

The floor price of Cryptopunks — a parameter that tracks the lowest price at which the uniquely produced character is sold. That’s, increased by 513 percent from 17.42 ETH to 106.87 ETH, according to the research.

The study stated the following about the Bored Ape Yacht Club’s (BAYC) floor price:
