Bitshares - State of the Network - 10th October 2017
The Bitshares State of the Network Reports seeks to combine raw data from a wide range of metrics and combine them into meaningful information to identify emerging trends and changes in the Bitshares network.
Observation from this week
This section will highlight any observations made while analysing the data.
Bitshares will no longer be trading on Bittrex after the 13th of October! If you still have a balance on the exchange you should transfer them out immediately. Need an account? Use the official cloud wallet HERE (Username and Password to sign up - it's that simple)
@billbutler has announced a new release of the Bitshares reference wallet (v2.0.171009), announcement can be found HERE. This release focuses on the commonly known 'account model'; presenting it as a cloud wallet, This cloud wallet will allow users to signup/signin to Bitshares with a familiar username and password method. This will take a lot of complexity out of creating an account and is a great move forward. You can view the new Bitshares cloud wallet HERE.
40 Million BTS has moved from top 100 (mainly from Exchanges) to accounts outside the top 100. This is good news in terms of having a wider distribution!, top 100 personal holders (not exchanges) have also increased by 6.4 Million and Balances held on exchanges are down ~47 Million BTS.
