The growth in network usage was seen despite users facing high fees. In late February, the ETH native token rate surpassed the $3000 mark. At that time, some users reported paying more than $100 per transaction at peak times, with ETH swap fees reaching $400.

At the same time, on March 13, the Dencun hard fork took place, which allowed reducing fees in Layer 2 (L2) networks based on Ethereum by 60-90% due to proto-danksharding.
