This price growth was accompanied by an even higher increase in usage and activity on the Avalanche network. The network experienced an unprecedented surge in daily transactions in November, a key indicator of network utilization and user engagement. From Nov. 1 to Nov. 20, daily transactions skyrocketed from 183,107 to 5,750,000, marking a 3,040% increase.

Alongside the rise in transaction count, there was a significant increase in the number of transactions per second (TPS) the network processed. This metric is a crucial gauge of a blockchain’s efficiency and scalability. The average TPS on Avalanche jumped from 2.24 on Nov. 1 to a peak of 66.61 on Nov. 20. This represents a remarkable ability of the network to handle increased throughput, showcasing its potential to support a high volume of transactions efficiently.

Another vital aspect to consider is gas usage, a measure of the computational effort required to execute operations on the network. Gas is essential to understand, as it reflects the network’s demand and the complexity of processing transactions. From Nov. 1 to 20, the gas used on Avalanche escalated significantly, from 36.7 million to 153.79 million, the second-highest level in the past year. This rise indicates not only increased activity but also possibly more complex transactions taking place on the network.
