Ethereum and Layer-2s Steal the Show in Crypto Q2 🎭

But the real stars were the layer-2 blockchains like Arbitrum, Base, and Optimism, which saw a massive surge in activity—four times more, to be exact! This boom was fueled by Ethereum’s EIP-4844 upgrade, which cut down transaction fees and spurred on-chain action. Looks like the crypto stage is set for more exciting performances ahead! 🎬
