How actively do people use Cardano?

Public blockchain networks have one big advantage when it comes to measuring activity. Thanks to on-chain analytics, we can know exactly how many people have exchanged digital assets with each other over a certain period. Activity on the network is one of the main indicators of the health of the ecosystem. If activity is increasing, it’s potentially a good sign and a guarantee that the network is becoming more popular or useful. Let’s take a look at how active people are on the Cardano network and compare the numbers to other networks. You’ll see that Cardano is definitely not a ghost-chain.


  • An address is considered active as soon as it becomes a direct participant in a confirmed transaction in a given time period.
  • The number of active addresses is probably one of the best statistics when it comes to network health.
  • Roughly 60K people use Cardano every day. That’s 10 times less than Ethereum.
  • The biggest wave of Cardano adoption is yet to come, as we can expect many new services to be deployed in 2023 and 2024.
