Arbitrum’s TVL and stablecoin inflow rises
The total value of assets locked on Arbitrum has risen by more than 20% in the last seven days to $3.85 billion, according to L2beats. In terms of ETH, 2.15 million tokens have been locked on the network.
The rising TVL also coincided with high-network activity on the L2 network. During the period, Arbitrum’s daily transaction per second rose 80.82% to 10.82.
DeFillama data shows that Arbitrum’s dominant DeFi protocol is GMX — the project controls 28.27% of Arbitrum’s total TVL.
Meanwhile, the L2 solution has continued to witness an increase in its stablecoin inflow. For context, Arbitrum’s USD inflow climbed 9% to $1.59 billion despite the recent issues plaguing the dominant stablecoin on its ecosystem, USD Coin (USDC).
During the period, there was more inflow of Tether’s USDT and algorithmic stablecoin DAI into the network as against USDC.
