Onto this week’s updates 🚦

🔴 Ethereum fees soar 💰

Ethereum's transaction fees just hit an eight-month high, all thanks to a buzz around a cool new digital token idea that got everyone trading like crazy (the ERC-404 if you want to know). This hike in fees shows just how much excitement new digital goodies can bring to the Ethereum world, making it a bit pricier to get in on the action. 🖥️

🟡 Ethereum Staking Boom 📈

A whopping 25% of all Ethereum is now staked on the network, hitting a new high. While staking has become super popular, especially with cool tools like Lido making it more accessible to join, the rewards have dipped from a juicy 8.6% to below 4%. But with over $73 billion worth of Ethereum staked, it's clear everyone's keen on securing the network and earning some rewards. 🪙
