A hot new blockchain game, ‘Sui 8192’, is causing a substantial swing in daily transactions on Sui, causing speculation that the blockchain network has overridden Solana in terms of network activity.
A Twitter post by the on-chain analytics platform, Artemis, suggests that the Sui Network recently surpassed 20 million daily transactions, dominating Solana’s 16 million. However, it’s important to note that Artemis utilizes a rare methodology for calculating Sui’s daily transactions, adding the network’s transaction blocks rather than each transaction concerning other chains, like Ethereum.

Since launching, Sui 8192’s merging of blockchain technology with the likeness to a cherished, old-school puzzle game has allured a wide user base, enabling the Sui blockchain to expand and evolve.
