Thanks for the great update :)

Thanks @steempower for sharing these wonderful updates of a great DEX platform.

Are you sure about "scaner?" seems like a funny name. Was something with the more traditional spelling "scanner" in it not available?

Bitshares when I saw your post on Bitshares I was so happy cause I have bought some Bitshares I still need money to buy more thanks for your information. @steempower

Waoh, I was enjoined to create an account last month : botefarm-123, this is surely the first blog I'll meet that explained it all.

Coins mentioned in post:

CoinPrice (USD)📈 24h📉 7d

Adding a few more details. It should be noted that while the network has 200,000 transactions a day over 80% of that activity is bots. the busiest bot makes up 13% of all trading volume. A large number of accounts are created (likely via a bot) used once or twice and then sit empty. I don't know the full purpose of all of that activity, but I want people aware of it.


Bot activity is perfectly fine & entirely encouraged, would you rather that every trade was manually performed by middlemen? Market making is neccessary & potentially profitable.


No objection to market making by bots, actually I agree it is necessary and I encourage it. However, I do think it is important to be able to measure both -real humans- and bot activity. Ultimately, the real humans bring more value to a network than the bots. There is a big difference between the two. I would like to mention facebook. It deleted about 1 billion bot created accounts. The real value of facebook is the people. It has 2 billion people on the platform. That means it deleted 1 bot account for every two real users. Bots creating millions of additional users devalue the humans on the network. That is why they deleted them. So I am ok with bots, but I don't like confusing statics that mislead.

This is a lot to absorb. BTS was my first choice of coin, although I don't hold but a pinch. I am trying to follow and understand.

I still love the work you do on this... this is like the cornerstone of a building.

Thanks for this update. Glad Spark is positively contributing to BitShares network.


I am the issuer of Spark coin so I take issue when I am spark and you are bitspark. But yes, I am contributing positively to Bitshares despite your continued ignorance of my emails and your continued trolling by sending coin dust to my accounts when I am not a user of your bitspark system.

So overall I love these reports, but I would like to point out something I think is important. The chart, number of accounts holding BTS off the exchange shows a number of ~130,000. That number is interesting to track as a general metric of the number of people, however it does not represent the number of active people. When I looked at the prior two months of activity, I found about 30,000 accounts had traded. So only about 1/4 of accounts are active and 3/4 of accounts are inactive. Over a two day period, I observed about 12,000 accounts trading. Now there is nothing wrong with holding, but it is important to understand these numbers can be misleading.


Though, BTS still has serious TX activity each day - observable on blocktivity: Almost 4 times more than BTC just today.


Good point. And I agree that the fundamental activity is good to watch, but even Bitcoins numbers get inflated...


Increase by 44659 wallets/accounts since last week is wrong. Wallet increase by 13327 wallets since last week.
