Data show some interesting facts about Ethereum burning.
The Ultrasound Money data report revealed the interesting fact that an average of 6.18 ETH is burned every minute by the Ethereum network.
This number comes after 152 days since implementing the EIP-1559 proposal, which offers the Ethereum blockchain deflationary functionalities and the ability to burn gas fees. Today’s price of $3,466 per ETH puts the burn rate above $21,000 per minute.
A total of 1.37 Million Ethereum has been burned by the Eth blockchain so far, which at today’s price, puts the total burn so far at approximately $4.69 billion.
