The new data for this wallet comes from the blockchain analysis company Intotheblock. Following Ethereum are Cardano and Bitcoin SV, with 4,511 and 2,110 new wallets added respectively. According to the company's website, the company defines a new wallet as a wallet created within the previous 24 hours.

Ethereum's more than 38,000 new addresses do not represent a weird increase in network users. A few days before the above tweet was published, Intotheblock released Ethereum-specific statistics, indicating that the network has continued to grow at a significant rate. According to a report on December 2, within 24 hours, more than 70,000 new addresses were created, while almost 24,000 addresses left the network at the same time.

Network activity can be a good measure of the health of crypto assets

In the last 24 hours, #Ethereum:

A new address of 70.71k has been created.️ 23.94k address has left the network. There are 244.7k active addresses.

In ConsenSys' latest version of " Ethereum by the Numbers, " the blockchain research startup identified this smart contract platform as encouraging growth in other areas as well. Taken together, these factors may constitute many of the new wallets recently added to the network.

As of press time, according to DAppTotal.com data, nearly $ 937 million was locked in DeFi applications-a number that has been growing rapidly in 2019.

The Ethereum network is also preparing for major updates in the coming days. As we all know, Istanbul will introduce six new Ethereum Improvement Protocols (EIP). These measures are designed to increase resilience against DOS attacks, enable interoperability between Zcash and the Ethereum network, and allow the use of more complex smart contracts.

Despite recent apparent activity around the Ethereum network, the price of the second largest digital asset by market value has yet to emerge from an independent market. ETH generally keeps pace with other crypto assets, the upcoming hard fork, the explosive growth of DeFi, and tens of thousands of new users apparently without adding any additional buying pressure for Ethereum relative to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
