More Whaleshares Statistics and Fun Facts

Some use(ful/less) numbers on blockchain use
and platform environment


We have about 50 new accounts per week. The numbers show some increase, which is what was expected after the holidays. 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 an initiative for promoting whaleshares offline by @seveaux. Take a look at his account for details.


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.


"Most vesting shares" uses left Y-axis, "Highest Possible Reward" uses right Y-axis

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 6.7% (was 6.6% in week 1) 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. 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.


The numbers of week 1 seemed a little weird, it looks like things are back to normal at the moment. Less unfollowers is a good sign, let's keep it that way. The account with the highest number of followers has been KrazyKrista, from the moment I started creating these stats.

Follow the people whose post content you find interesting. Don't worry about follow back.


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

More detailed information on number of accounts per range and amount of whalestake per range will be covered in a separate post.

We are growing

These stats change the moment someone interacts with the blockchain, it is just a snapshot.
