Thus, Vitalik Buterin also draws attention to the new record, suggesting that perhaps it is the highest number of transactions ever recorded in public blockchains, which is, to tell the truth, quite a controversial statement:

Anyway, the new record is certainly noteworthy as it demonstrates the growing popularity of the platform, let along the huge amount of ICO held on the basis of Ethereum tokens.

However, despite the increased activity, the price of Ether, according to Coinmarketcap, for the past day has decreased and is now around $ 298. Market capitalization of Ethereum is currently estimated at $ 28 billion, which is about 20% of the total capitalization of all crypts.
