Layer 1 chains that could lead gains in the ongoing cycle

A high number of DAU is the goal of blockchain networks, since it means chains sport more users, higher revenue generation potential and growth. A large number of users, and nodes implies a network is more secure and decentralized as compared to others.

TRON, NEARProtocol, BNB Chain, and Solana are large Layer 1 chains that see higher usage coming from USD Tether (USDT). Crypto expert behind the X handle @hmalviya9 shared the following statistics on Layer 1 chains; the influencer says that these chains have over a million DAUs.

  • 99% of TRON’s usage comes from USDT
  • 70% of the usage comes from Shopping Cashback apps for NEAR Protocol 
  • 50% of usage of Binance Chain comes from USDT, the rest from Pancakeswap, Hook Protocol 
  • 80% of usage comes from new account, token transfers, and trading, for Solana

The NEAR blockchain is focused on onboarding new users to the chain and Solana’s ecosystem attracts traders and seasoned market participants. 

On Sunday, NEAR price yielded double-digit daily gains while TRON, BNB Chain and Solana were largely unchanged on the daily timeframe.
