The rate of ETH inflation has seen a higher spike recently according to a report. ETH is the second most valuable crypto by market capitalization after Bitcoin.
The annualized burn rate of ETH has jumped last Saturday to its highest since last Monday.
The spike in the burn rate of ETH came amid a jump in the gas price of Ethereum. If the demand for Ethereum kept on growing that may cause a rise in network congestion that will also cause an upside in the gas fees which may cause a further acceleration in the rate of ETH deflation.
Reason Behind the Growing ETH Deflation Rate
The network fee of Ethereum is split into two components. The first is the base fee that should be paid by users to ensure that there transaction is processed and accepted on the blockchain.
Then there is an optional tip, that users may pay for a quicker processing of their transactions.
The base fee is automatically calculated by Ethereum network which rises at times of heavy traffic on the network.
All of these base fees paid by users must subsequently be burned in accordance with Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 1559, which was incorporated into the Ethereum code during the London hardfork in August 2021. This will permanently remove the tokens from circulation.
Resultantly when the gas fee rises, the burn rate of ETH also rises. When this burn rate exceeds the issuance rate, ETH supply will decline.
ETH is issued to the nodes and stakers that secure the network.
