The Ethereum network has been in the news lately despite its unreactive prices. The ecosystem has experienced a faster network following the 25% increase in the gas limit after a long-lasting request from Ethereum’s community, the total gas used on the network accommodated a record high gas limit of 12,500,000 from the former 10,000,000 gas limit.

Data suggests that the increase in the gas limit didn’t bottleneck the newly increased on-chain transactions. The transactions had increased to 44 per second, compared to the former limit of 35 per second.

With the number of transactions increasing in response to the increased gas limit and a stable on-chain volume, data suggests that the increase in total gas usage was most likely incurred from the increased use of complex smart contracts with inherently required more gas.

However, despite the surge in the gas limit, the demand for on-chain transactions persists.

Experts speculated that third-party applications that were responsible for aggregating tweets with access to the Twitter API were most likely responsible. However, the platform later confirmed that it was a “socially-engineered attack” that was successful in infiltrating employees with access to the internal systems and tools.

The Reddit community has chimed in and speculated that the hack may have been because of a Twitter employee getting phished or trojan-horsed through a third-party platform. As a lot of network attacks have taken place, websites and people running wire shark to probe all open ports on the internet are trying to inject their code.
