$35 M worth of Ethereum (ETH) coins burned with new ATH of active addresses

Ethereum’s fee structure, which brings a fee-burning mechanism to the network, is accelerating day by day due to the elevated network load and increased base fee. These caused $35 million worth of burnings in the last 24 hours, which is the record for the number of coins burned in one day. In addition to a large number of burned coins, Ethereum has added more than 6.2 million addresses to the network that hold 0.01-1 ETH since the beginning of 2021.
