- Activity on Coinbase’s Base is soaring.
- The network is rivaling leading Ethereum Layer-2 solutions in just two days of its launch.

Activity On Base Soars
The number of daily active users on Base has surpassed 100,000 in just its second day after launching.
According to data from TK Research’s Dune Analytics dashboard, the number of daily active users on the Coinbase incubated network surpassed 136,000 on Thursday, August 10, higher than Optimism’s 114,700 users per data from Token Terminal.
Similarly, the number of transactions per second (TPS) on Base surged to 8.76, ahead of Arbutrum One and Optimism and behind only Ethereum and zkSync Era, according to data from L2Beat.
The recent surge in activity comes amid Coinbase’s Onchain Summer event featuring multiple daily NFT mints and campaigns to promote partner projects and sustain hype around the protocol.
At the time of writing, the total value locked (TVL) on Base sits at $173 million, gaining over $20 million since its launch, per data from L2Beat.
On the Flipside
- Most of Base’s TVL came from memecoin speculation weeks before its public launch.
