Ethereum Weekly Recap | May 09 – May 15, 2022

This weekly recap on Ethereum is for information purposes only, not investment advice. The recap will briefly summarize the outstanding activities of Ethereum over the past week from May 09 – May 15. Along with the collapse of luna and BTC creating a new bottom at $26,000 it made the market wobble. ETH reach $1800, the lowest since May 2021. ETH lost 50% of its value since the last peak. As a result, the number of ETH holders long time over 1 year also sold off despite losses, and Dapp built on ETH also decreased. There have been many fluctuations last week, let’s find out more details with Coincu.

Network Growth

Daily Transactions

Daily transactions on Ethereum from May 09 – May 15 is at a current level of 8.47M transactions. Up 4.07% (last week’s total transaction is:  8.12M). The highest number of 1,716,600 transactions was on Sunday, May 9, 2021. The lowest number of 1,329 transactions was on Sunday, August 9, 2015. The number of transactions in the past week increased sharply because the market was unstable, traders and holders sold off their assets despite losses. Some people believe in market will uptrend, but most of them lose faith in the market to sell properties regardless.

Unique Addresses

Ethereum Cumulative Unique Addresses is at a current level of 196.26M and a daily increase of 92,581 addresses, Up ~21.72% (last week daily increase is: 71,816 addresses). The chart shows the total distinct numbers of addresses on the Ethereum blockchain and the increase in the number of address daily. The index shows us total address increased slightly compared to previous weeks. Looking at the chart, we can see that unique addresses are always increasing, proving that attraction of Ethereum is great.

Whether the market is up or down, the number of people knowing and trading on ethereum still increases. According to, between May 09 – May 15, Ethereum has added 1,335,360 new and unique addresses on its network.

Active addresses

The daily active address count is 493,143 addresses with a received count: of 369,165 addresses and sends count of 253,551 address. The active addresses have a slight decrease compared to last week’s  504,810 addresses. Although the daily transaction increased sharply, but the active addresses decreased – this can be understood that although the market is unstable but only individuals exchange back and forth, it is possible to sell and buy back at a lower price so that active address did not increase compared to last week.

Total Value Locked

Total value locked on Ethereum still taking 1st place with $70.4b reduced 29.96% compared to the last week. With constant development and innovation, ETH is still the chain with an outstanding number of DAPPs. Under the general influence of the market, the TVL of the Ethereum chain decreased, lowest from July 2021.
