However, the sudden fall of the BTC transaction fees appears to be influenced by a drastic drop in the entire crypto market. Yet, the daily volumes keep rising. To be precise, Bitcoin volume rose from $67 billion to $30 billion on May 10.

The outstanding crypto bull run appears to have triggered the average transaction fees associated with Bitcoin and Ethereum massively. In addition, Bitcoin’s transaction fees nearly tripled within two weeks in February 2021. 

Furthermore, the BTC’s fee tripled update came at the same time frame when Tesla announced a purchase of $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin. The Tesla $1.5 billion BTC purchase pushed Bitcoin price from its $40,000 mark to $54,410 at that time.

According to CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin and Ethereum are trading at $36,310 and $2,587, respectively, at the time of writing.
