Stats and Fun Facts - Update

ijmmaiwitnessPosted to Public7 months ago3 min read


The project started with this first post, a website with 3 sorts of statistic information. These are the stats I used to post with graphs earlier on. At this moment it is just about the numbers. There is no history function, yet. The numbers are a snapshot of blockchain information of that very moment.


No new section was added, but some changes have been made.

  • Proxyvoters have been added to Fact & Fun
    The stats don't only show how many people are using the proxy vote feature, but also who chose whom to vote for them. (Or maybe even, who linked their additional account(s) to their main account :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: )

  • Earlier there were 3 "vault" accounts. I call them vault accounts because these accounts are maintained by the launch/dev-team, hold earmarked money, and do not interact with the platform in any way. They are just wallets. These accounts were already excluded from the stats.

    Due to new things coming our way, 4 additional vault accounts have been created. These accounts have now been removed from the Fact & Fun, and the Rich & (in)Famous stats.

  • Different layouts in User Account Info
    To make it more obvious whether you are looking at a vault account or a regular user account, I have changed the layout for the vault accounts.



Layout is still not a priority, but things are a little bit off at the moment. Therefore, some styling will happen before adding new sections.

  • Howto's

Further away Future

Due to growth of the blockchain, it will get harder to query for information in a timely fashion. A switch to querying a database, instead of the blockchain directly, will then be made.

Use your witness votes wisely

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. Refresh the page in case your vote doesn't seem to stick.
