The 2 layer-2 networks processed greater than 1.1 million transactions mixed on Jan. 10.
Ethereum layer-2 on-chain exercise has been growing to the extent that the main two networks now course of extra transaction quantity than mainnet Ethereum.
Layer-2 networks Arbitrum and Optimism have seen a rise in transactions over the previous three months. Comparatively, apart from a number of spikes, transactions on the Ethereum community have declined by round 33% since late October, based on Etherscan.
This has enabled the 2 L2s mixed to flip Ethereum for this metric, based on Dune Analytics data.
The chart exhibits Ethereum processed over 1.06 million transactions on Jan. 10, whereas Arbitrum and Optimism mixed processed over 1.12 million transactions.
Moreover, Optimism has now surpassed Arbitrum when it comes to each day transactions following a gentle uptrend in exercise since September.

On Jan. 10, Ethereum processed a median of round 12 TPS, in comparison with the L2’s common of almost 16.5 TPS.
Arbitrum and Optimism mixed characterize virtually 80% of all the layer-2 ecosystem, based on L2beat.
Arbitrum One stays the market chief when it comes to whole worth locked (TVL) with round $2.34 billion in collateral, giving it a 52.5% market share.
Optimism is in second place with a TVL of $1.28 billion and a 28.6% market share.
In line with Nansen researcher Martin Lee, decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols are one of many key drivers of the adoption of the Optimism chain.
Different layer twos corresponding to zk-rollup StarkNet have additionally been processing extra transactions just lately. StarkWare know-how additionally powers different options together with ImmutableX and dYdX.
Moreover, Starkscan reports the community is at an all-time excessive when it comes to TVL at $5.2 million.
