The Meteoric Rise and Shocking Fall of A Tale of Crypto Peaks and Valleys made a remarkable debut in the ever-changing world of decentralized networks. However, less than three weeks after its spectacular launch, the social platform’s attraction appears to be fading, as demonstrated by decreasing metrics. Is the buzz already fading?

When the beta version of debuted on Coinbase’s cutting-edge layer-2 Base on August 11, it didn’t simply produce ripples; it caused waves. Only a week after its inception, the platform’s fees skyrocketed, reaching a stunning $1 million in a single day on August 19. It left heavyweights like Uniswap and even the colossus Bitcoin network in its wake in just 24 hours.

However, much like the meteoric rise of a star,’s spectacular stats began to fail. According to DefiLlama data, a spectacularly high charge of $1.7 million on Aug. 21 fell by an astounding 87%, dropping to a measly $215,000 by Aug. 26.

With transactions, a similar story unfolded. From a peak of roughly 525,000 on Aug. 21, they plummeted by more than 90%, registering just over 51,000 by Aug. 27.

Dune Analytics data, which supported his point of view, showed a troubling picture. From a peak of 58,000 buyers and 27,000 vendors on August 21, saw those figures fall to under 10,000 buyers and 7,800 sellers on August 27.

Furthermore, inflows mirrored this downward pattern. They peaked at an impressive $16.8 million on August 21 before dropping over 90.5% to roughly $1.6 million on August 27.

While many were taken aback, some cryptocurrency experts had already expressed their reservations. Yazan, a crypto analyst, recently expressed his doubts to Cointelegraph. He predicted a decrease in user key prices and overall activity within six to eight weeks.

The criticism did not stop there. The evolution of has drawn analogies to the 2021 DeSo app BitCloud. Legendary, a fictitious Web3 marketer, predicted that would “implode as BitClout did.”
