Dai on Different Networks #11 - September 17, 2021

Dai on Different Networks #11

If you missed last week’s update, here’s a link to Dai on Different Networks #10.


  • Nearly 9.5 million DAI was bridged to Optimism last week, begging the question: rollup szn?
  • Over 12 million DAI was bridged to Solana last week. This despite the blockchain’s CEO shutting down the network for nearly an entire day. The sources are yet to be determined, but one wallet currently holds 99.9% of DAI circulating on Solana.
  • BSC’s top mover was… Binance Hot Wallets, which saw an influx of over 82 million DAI last week. Is this simple wallet aggregation or is DAI leaving the comfort of cold storage to hit exchanges?


Where is my Dai (General)

This week saw slight decreases across the board, outside of minor upticks in the ‘Other’ and ‘Treasuries’ categories. ‘Other’ is an aggregate of Aragon, Tornado Cash, and PulseChain - and ‘Treasuries’ represents Olympus DAO.

  • The Contract (C-Chain) chain is EVM compliant, allowing devs to copy/paste projects and enabling easier bridging for end-users.
  • Platform (P-Chain) chain controls validators and creates “subnets” or sharded side-chains.

  • On the 16th, Trader Joe saw the 3rd highest user volume out of any DEX on any chain. Safe to say Avalanche is heating up - so I guess… global warming?

Notes & Feedback

  • Next week we’ll be releasing a dashboard for Dai on Different Networks - but as of now, Dune Analytics only pulls from the Ethereum, xDAI, and Polygon blockchains.
  • 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.
  • TVL Bridge is back on the menu!

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!
