    Yesterday, ethereum did $89M in transaction fees, the most ever in one day.That’s an annual run rate of $32.5B in fees.EIP-1559 is estimated to burn ~70% of fees and would have burned $62M in ETH yesterday. EIP-1559 launches in a little over two months.

    At this point, when someone from #ethereum talks down to #cardano by asking “yeah but where are the working smart contracts?” You can just say “I was going to ask you the same thing.” Ethereum is literally broken. #cardano is already on PoS with more staked. It’s ahead of $ETH.

An Economic Analysis of Ethereum

Third-Party Ethereum Node Operators Bitcoin has been designed to make running a full node take up relatively little space….Much like how other monetary tokens have not been able to take market share from Bitcoin’s expansive network effect, these smart contract protocols are much, much smaller than Ethereum….Despite the Ethereum blockchain being far younger than the Bitcoin blockchain, the amount of space required to run a full node for the Ethereum blockchain is already larger than a Bitcoin full node, since it grows more rapidly per unit of time….Ethereum developers wanted to avoid some of the issues of altcoins that try to increase throughput by making every node hard to run, so they wanted to make a spectrum of nodes to give users different levels of validation, which is about as good as can be done when this much complexity is being built into the base layer of the protocol….However, running validators is a good incentive for Ethereum investors to hold the tokens for the long-term on Ethereum 2.0. They can hoard tokens and take them to validation to earn a yield of more tokens….Being a utility token does not preclude Ethereum from also being a monetary token, if sufficient investor demand for Ethereum tokens exists for staking and collateral.
