Bitshares - State of the Network - 1st May 2018
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 week I would like to start by recognizing the hardworking teams who are translating these reports into other languages.
@blockchained has been translating these reports into Russian each week for over 1 year now starting at report #21 back in February 2017!
@fractalnode has been translating into Polish for the last 7 months!
@bangzi the newest addition to the team who has started last week translating these reports into Chinese.
Thank you all for your great efforts in getting these reports into the hands of many people around the world.
Observation from this week
This section will highlight any observations made while analysing the data.
This weekend, 5th-6th May 2018 the Global Graphene Blockchain Developers Conference will kick off in the Shanghai Himalayas Daguan Theatre in Shanghai, China. This milestone event will host over 35 speakers from a wide range of projects with Graphene as the common focus from all attendees. No doubt this will be a great networking event and if the China Dev con (Jan 2018) is anything to go by a huge success. Tickets to this event are VERY reasonably priced so if you are able to attend I think you will get great value from this event. Find more information HERE
This week Bitshares recorded a new 24h transaction record as reported by Blocktivity.info. Bitshares hit a record of 1,513,308 Transaction over a 24 hour period which works out to an average of 17.5 TPS. Bitshares currently holds the 2nd position for the largest amount of transactions in a 24 hour period, behind Steem which is holding the pole position with 2,068,341 TXs in 24 hours. With the rapid increase in trading platforms, wallets, trading/liquidity bots and this week a brand new game utilizing the Bitshares blockchain, Bitshares has the first place position in its sights. Either way it is great to see these Graphene based chain illustrating the power of DPOS.
The Bitshares based farming game Bits.Farm has launched this week and free SEED tokens have been distributed users who registered and activated their account as part of the free 'ICO' (no money exchange only registration of interest to receive a free allocation of SEED tokens.).
