Ethereum by the Numbers — January 2020

Check out Ethereum activity, decentralized finance metrics, and more facts and figures about happening on Ethereum.

Overview of January

Just two days into the new year and decade, Ethereum started off with the Glacier Muir Hard Fork which delayed Ethereum’s “ice age”. Throughout January, decentralized finance has continued to thrive with Maker’s multi-collateral Dai surpassing the 100 million Dai threshold. Additionally, MakerDao’s Oasis platform now provides a Dai Savings Rate (DSR) of over 7% for users who save their Dai in the platform. Moving forward it will be interesting to see how users interact with Oasis and if the DSR grows in popularity. Moreover, popular no-loss gambling app Pool Together achieved it’s highest weekly payout to date of 700 Dai. On the developer side, Gitcoin conducted a widely successful pilot of quadratic voting which provided 200k in grants to two categories: Technology and Media. The fourth community funding round from Gitcoin had over 300 companies or open source projects apply for funding.
