More Whaleshares Statistics and Fun Facts
Some use(ful/less) numbers on blockchain use
and platform environment
This week I decided to do things a little bit different. Instead of just numbers and graphs, let's put some names to these numbers instead.
New people are joining at a nice pace of 50 new accounts per week on average.
The approval process is still a manual process. This prevents huge growth in a short period of time, but that is not necessarily a bad thing at this moment. It is more important to invite the good guys in and keep the bad guys out.
There is a difference between posts and comments, but for the blockchain by default they are the same. The difference will be made visible when these statistics are available on a separate website. My own number of posts is highly influenced by the comments I add in reply to contest entries.
I was expecting more of a spike in number of posts due to #thebeast challenge, but it doesn't look too much out of the ordinary yet.
Rewards and Shares
The increase of accounts has led to an decrease of the maximum possible reward.
Witnesses need your vote to get a higher ranking on the list. The more whalestake you hold the more value your vote brings to the table. Still, even if you have just entered the platform, take some time to find out who the witnesses are and what they stand for. Every vote counts.
Only 6.8% (was 6.7% last week) of the available votes have been cast, I think we can do better than that.
Some witnesses have unplugged their server. Check your witness votes, and remove the votes you have on disabled servers.
People are able to powerdown a bigger part of their whalestake, 23% already. This results in an increase of the average amount being powered down per account.
WLS seems to be used more and more to reward and support others. More Whalestake is converted to WLS by powering down, but the total amount of WLS available on the platform also increases. This means either the WLS stays within the platform after powering down, or a lot of WLS is bought on the exchange and brought into the platform. Both scenarios are good.
Follow the people whose post content you find interesting. Don't worry about follow back.
The huge difference between values of last week and this week in this table are due to an error in the code. Found out about it while adjusting something else.
The long links for images are related to people using the complete url Google supplies when you search for something. The number of people who have a display name different from their account name increases. Could be due to the desired name not being available, or not possible.
Number of Accounts per Whalestake Range
The first range with mostly people still at bay, increased with 4. Since 48 accounts joined, it means most new accounts are actively being used.
More detailed information on number of accounts per range and amount of whalestake per range will be covered in a separate post.
These stats change the moment someone interacts with the blockchain, it is just a snapshot.
Use your witness votes wisely, but please do use them.
Jump over to the Block Producer / Witness page and cast your witness votes. Simply click on the (^) up arrow next to the witness names of your choice (mine would be "ijmmaiwitness") and supply your private active key to lock in your vote.
