Ethereum layer-two network Base reached a daily peak of $1.22 billion in trading volumes on March 30 amid a meme coin frenzy on the network.

Trading volumes have dropped in the new week to average $970 million on April 1, according to Dune, but the increased activity on the network is making it an attractive destination for meme coins.

Base has already locked in $1.47 billion worth of meme coins as its top two meme coins posted strong gains over the past week, according to CoinGecko.

New Layer-Three Network Drives More Activity into Base

Degen Chain, a layer-three blockchain created atop the Base network, launched last week and is driving transaction activity on Base.
