Blockchain-based game Gods Unchained has taken the transaction volume crown away from CryptoKitties.
A CoinMetrics Twitter thread outlined how Ethereum ran smoothly despite the glut of transactions because the team at Gods Unchained “batched” transactions.
“This is because Gods Unchained has been batching hundreds of transfers in single transactions. Gods Unchained is in the process of ‘activating’ all of their cards, which turns each card into a tradeable token.
1/ There were over 3.7 million Ethereum ERC-721 transfers on November 17th!
That’s over 4x more transfers than the previous all-time high of 846 thousand, which occurred just two weeks ago. pic.twitter.com/u7t1rOO3gG

“Gods Unchained started activation in November, which means these transfers represent the total amount of cards up to that point.
“Previously, users could only receive cards directly from Gods Unchained. These cards were usable in-game, but not tradable on the open market.
“For context, CryptoKitties has had about 4.7 million transfers over the course of its lifetime, which includes original purchases and secondary sales.
In 2017, CryptoKitties proved so popular it placed pressure on the Ethereum network’s technology.
This week, Coin Rivet published an interview with Roham Gharegozlou, the founder of Dapper Labs, the company responsible for the development of CryptoKitties, where he talks about the future of blockchain gaming and collectible items.
