A Quarter of Users Only Used Arbitrum Once

Although the number of transactions has exceeded 200 million, the User Activity Profile indicates that approximately a quarter of the total users only transacted once. This data may indicate that about 1.1 million users didn’t return to the project after selling the airdrop tokens.

Whereas 70.7% of the users have transacted 1 to 1000 times.
