Analysis of dYdX’s gas spending

Ranked #11 on the leaderboard, dYdX users pay some of the highest gas prices with an average of 29.5 gwei. A recent deep dive into Ethereum gas prices by Origin Protocol provides some insight into what’s going on:

“If you need ‘real-time’ transactions, then you have to compete by paying more against everyone else who wants real-time transactions. If enough people are trying to do this at the same time, the required price can spike very rapidly.”

When the cryptocurrency markets are moving, Ethereum network activity increases significantly. Margin traders on dYdX chasing the market demand real-time transactions and are willing to pay a premium to open or close positions in a timely manner.
