Bitshares - State of the Network - 11th July 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.
This weeks report lacks some details due to Cryptofresh data being re-indexed after the Bitshares patch released the day prior to my data collection. I hope to have a full report as normal next week. Any affected data has been removed and to make up for it i have included a few more pictures and videos.
Observation from this week
This section will highlight any observations made while analysing the data.
