On Sept. 14, the layer-2 blockchain hit 1.88 million transactions, surpassing its previous record of 1.41 million transactions on Aug. 21 — the month when the network was launched. The layer-2 network surpassed other rival chains like Optimism and Arbitrum which had a combined 878,000 transactions for the day. 

Despite reaching the milestone, the layer-2 network is still lagging behind more prominent blockchains like Polygon and BNB Smart Chain (BSC). Polygon had 2.1 million transactions on the date, while BSC had 3.1 million transactions on the same day.

Unlike its previous transaction record on Aug. 21, when the blockchain also hit 136,000 daily active users along with its high number transactions, the layer-2 network did not have as many users this time. When it comes to daily active users, Base only had around 86,000 on Sept. 14, according to data recorded by Dune Analytics.
