Coinbase’s director Connor Grogan shared on X that 1 million tokens have been launched since April 1, 2024. The tokens created in the Ethereum Network account for 36% of the total number, with 372,642 tokens launched in the past month and a half.

According to Dune Analytics, 327,553 tokens, around 88% of the total, were launched on the Layer-2 blockchain Base. The surge was seemingly propelled by the memecoin frenzy that has taken over this cycle.
