Welcome to the 27th Bitshares State of the Network (BSotN) report. I will be releasing this report weekly to look at the changes in the ecosystem and track longer term changes in a effort to identify emerging trends and changes in the Bitshares platform.
Bitshares - State of the Network - 21st March 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 this week conducted a stress test on the public Bitshares testnet with amazing results; The test reached a maximum of 62,645 Operations inside a single Block 3 second block! that is 20881 Operations Per Second (Operations are changes to state and include transfers, market orders, votes, account updates ect..) and a maximum of 9,985 Transactions in a single Block! that's a staggering 3328 Transactions Per Second!! (transactions are a signed message that includes 1 or more operations). During the test period the network sustained 100-200 Transactions per second between coordinated tests as mentioned above. These are great results but the stress test team is not satisfied and will be pushing forward with upcoming tests in the near future.
Alfred Garcia (Bitshares Core Dev) has been focusing on Github issues this week and has closed a bunch of them; check out his progress HERE
@svk has released a new Bitshares client (v. 2.0.170314) featuring updated UI design provided by @etherdesign as well as some UX enhancements to make working with wallet a more intuitive and fluid experience; I Personally recommend checking it out as it looks amazing!. As well as the new design there has also been a lot of updates and fixes included as well - Checkout the latest updates HERE or download the latest version for your computer HERE - https://bitshares.org/wallet has also been updated with the latest updates.
Peerplays Jonathan Baha'i has announced this week that they are currently working on a promotional video that is expected to be released soon; they have also coordinating their global teams, building their sports betting application and a new website with a sport betting focus to capture their initial target market and ensure that customers are well informed and not overloaded by crypto currency related news and details which may not be of interest to the average punter. They have also announce that the testnet 'core' wallet will be released on the 7th of April; this being the core wallet it will only include account management features that PPY holders will user to work with their account, it will not include any gaming aspects of Peerplays. You can hear Jonathan's official update on the latest Beyond Bitcoin Hangout which you can find HERE
@xeroc has release a new version of uptick (v 0.1.2). Uptick is python based command line tool for interfacing with the Bitshares network. you can find more details of the changes HERE or download the latest version HERE
@xeroc has release a new version of python-bitshares (v 0.1.4). Python-Bitshares is python based library used to interact with the Bitshares network. you can find more details of the changes HERE or download the latest version HERE
@kencode has released his weekly update filled with news from a number of projects that Bitshares-Munich are working on (BlockPay, C-IPFS, Bitshares Stealth, Smartcoins Wallet). 5 out of 6 chains have been implemented into the smartcoins wallet and Bitshares Stealth (using ZKSnarks) seems to be coming along very nicely. Heaps of great updates can be found HERE
If you have been living under a rock; i will inform you that @dan (Daniel Larimer a.k.a Bytemaster) has resigned from Steemit. What does this mean for Bitshares? No idea but its nice to think that if Dan wanted to return to Bitshares the worker proposal system would be able to employee him as a developer on the platform in which he built. Imagine the pride in being hired by the community and paid by the blockchain which you built. Worst case Dan will be looking to 'build another ship' in which i'm sure the underlying technology would be Graphene; this would further strengthen the existing platforms built on the Grapehene technology.
OpenLedger is assisting with the crowd-sale of the new platform 'Internet of Coins' and their flagship asset 'HYBRID'. Internet of coins aims to be a digital wallet in which you can store you value from multiple platforms (Bitcoin/Omni, Ethereum, Bitshares, NEM, Waves, Counterparty, NXT) and with the use of their HYBRID asset (which trades on all platforms) will allow users to exchange value between different chains. Check out the platform HERE or watch the live stream from Openledger HERE
23 User Issued Assets (UIA's) have been registered this week with majority of the registrations being attributed to 2 user accounts (ddd888 and thedex). Of the 2 'thedex' has registered a number of cryptocurrency symbols such as MAID, USDT and ETH (note the 3 Letter UIA 'ETH' the rareist and most expensive UIA's on offer). You do not register 3 letter UIA's unless you have a business idea or some form of plan which could be used to recoup the costs. To give you an idea of the cost involved with registering such a premium asset; the cost at the time of writing for a lifetime member to register a 3 letter symbol is 234,821 BTS / $1264 USD
Today's snapshot of asset markets on the Bitshares DEX shows that the trading volume for the last 24 hour period is over a quarter of a Million dollars coming in at just under 300,000 USD
This weeks Bitshares hangout recording has been published and is availible HERE
