Dai on Different Networks #10 - September 9th, 2021

Dai on Different Networks #10

If you missed last week’s update, here’s a link to Dai on Different Networks #9.


  • Fantom continues to grow, positioning itself as the fourth-largest EVM-compliant network. In the last two weeks alone, we’ve seen an 80% increase in circulating DAI on the platform. Wouldn’t have guessed that it would be NFTs that sparked the multi-chain movement, but here we are!
  • Uniswap’s dominance of the DEX market has begun to show signs of fracturing, as money moves to various chains.
  • On the Binance side of things, Quickswap has been moving up the charts and is now firmly entrenched as the second-largest Dai holder on the chain.


Where is my Dai (General)

This week saw a healthy increase of around 1.5% between DEXs and Lending protocols and another 1.2% decrease in ‘Other’- which is an aggregate of Aragon, Tornado Cash, and PulseChain.

This week saw more NFT-driven, chain-to-chain movement. And again, Fantom was a benefactor, with an increase of nearly 38% in circulating DAI.

Avalanche saw a fairly steep decline in circulating DAI as users migrate to Solana, Fantom, and Algorand - among others.

Notes & Feedback

  • Working on a dashboard for Dai on Different Networks but as of now, Dune Analytics only pulls from the Ethereum, xDAI, and Polygon blockchains.
  • Will be digging deeper into the internal movement on BSC and Solana.
  • Getting conflicting information on various Avalanche explorers, so the current total reflects total DAI and DAI.e and includes BENQI’s current DAI.e supply.

Have anything you’d like to see added to these breakdowns? Leave a message in the comments or DM me, @seth, or @JerryAG.

Thanks for reading!
