We’ll continue to track xDAI’s daily transactions to better understand DAI’s flow through its network.

Transactions per day

  • Its Governance token (STAKE) can be swapped to through numerous chains and DEXs, which makes the tracking of input DAI a challenge. STAKE’s top pair on HoneySwap is STAKE-xDAI with 322,945 in xDAI currently pooled.

You can think them as LP pools similar to ones on Uniswap v2.

@alec is the “Where is my Dai (L2s)” chart correct? Optimism seems to be missing.

Good catch! I was 99% sure they were KlaySwap, but their “Orbit Bridge” (seems as if the bridge has an entry point straight into KlaySwap) muddied the transactions up a bit. Left them hanging until I could fully confirm. Appreciate the due diligence - going to get them added! :slightly_smiling_face:

@Planet_X The chart was taken directly from MakerDAO’s analytics dash, but it looks like Poly and xDAI simply overwhelm Optimism on the graphic.

That said, circulating DAI on true L2s is on the rise, so a few months from now - that chart may look entirely different. Guess we’ll see! :slightly_smiling_face:

@alec I zoomed in max on the chart. There is simply no Optimism on it. It is not overwhelmed, it is missing.

Optimism is about 1/5 of xDAI so it should be a thin purple line - but there is nothing - like not a single pixel.

Hmm, thanks for the heads up. I’ll see if I can get it to visualize properly, or I’ll make one - unfortunately it definitely won’t look as pretty as @SebVentures’s!

Hi—good stuff—can you please add Solana’s Wormhole and to the DEX list, saber.so?


Actually, Optimism is there. Dune frontend adds white borders that hide small stuff.

Or changing the chart a little bit (logarithmic trick):

But TL;DR: Optimism is not living up to my expectations … I don’t know why.

Btw, if people know the bridges (on Ethereum) for other networks, happy to add them.
