A sudden increase in gas fees and ETH burn rates has led to almost 800 deflationary blocks so far. The aspects of Ethereum’s deflation were witnessed at London upgrade last week on the Blockchain with almost 800 “deflationary blocks” made.

A sudden increase in gas fees and ETH burn rates has led to almost 800 deflationary blocks so far. The aspects of Ethereum’s deflation were witnessed at London upgrade last week on the Blockchain with almost 800 “deflationary blocks” made.

A sudden increase in the Ethereum transaction fee burn rate has ensued in at least two hours after the supply became deflationary. The network was under pressure over the last couple of days which ended up with more gas being burnt. After four hours (as of 22.00 UTC), the ‘ETH burn bot’ recorded an example where 545 ETH was burnt within a one-hour period. Whereas, Ethereum was stated at 532 ETH per hour, this ended up with asset witnessing deflation of minus 13 ETH for that short time. 

A huge deflationary burn was discovered by the ETH burn bot a few hours later in which at least 945 tokens were burnt within a hour with a temporary negative issuance of -417 ETH. This was calculated as an annualized deflation rate of -3.12%. when the total amount of ETH burned is bigger than the mining reward the deflationary blocks are created with the supply temporarily decreased. This was noticed in the tracker from advisory firm Carbono which at the present is stating that there have been 791 deflationary blocks so far, this proves that the blocks which burn fee exceeded mined ETH. 

As the London hard fork was released on August 5, it brought the EIP 1559 upgrade which regulated the transaction fee calculation system. A part of this adjustment brought a mechanism that burns an area of the base fees collected. As stated, the ultrasound money which follows the amount burnt, 25,600 ETH has been burnt during the time of writing. During the present price rate this is equal to $80 million in just a week. The Ethereum company did not expect a sustained deflation until the fee burning was mixed with the depletion in block reward issuance due to bringing together the proof-of-stake at some stage in 2022. 

Nevertheless, its not all positive for Ethereum users as gas prices have increased again. The average transaction price has gone to $20 from around $4 in late July. Etherscan’s gas trackers states that much as $28.60 for a token swap on Uniswap. The increase in demand for Ethereum blockspace has been led by NFTs with the OpenSea marketplace, Gala Games Vox and Axie infinity are all at the top 4 for gas burning with a total of 2,200 ETH or $7 million burned so far.
