When it comes to the number of transactions that occur per second (TPS), Base reached 35.16, representing a 36.12% rise, while Arbitrum and Ethereum are now at 17.80 and 14.38, respectively.

Coinbase’s Vice President and Head of Consumer Products, Max Branzburg, took to X around the end of the first quarter of 2024 to announce that the business intends to begin keeping its users’ USDC balances on the Base Network.

For Coinbase, this is a way to handle and safeguard customer cash comfortably while simultaneously reducing fees and achieving speedier settlement times.

In addition to this, it facilitates the enhancement of Base’s capabilities, which ultimately leads to improved results in its TVL. Despite this, there are still rumors that a base token will be created.

During an interview that took place a year ago, Coinbase’s Chief Legal Officer, Paul Grewa, made a passing reference to the prospect of the offering.

The fact that the network was now concentrating on advancing technological advancements at Base was the only justification he could offer at the time for the delay.
