Bitshares - State of the Network - 30th January 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.

Observation from this week

This section will highlight any observations made while analysing the data.

  • The first Graphene Devcon from the Chinese community was successfully held in Shanghai on 21st January 2018 which had over 400 participants attend. The event was so valuable the organisers are now organising a Global Graphene conference and are calling for Speakers and Participants! dates are not finalized as yet but tentative dates for the 2 day event are March 24th/25th, March 31st/April 1st or April 22nd/23rd and will be held in Shanghai, China. This is a development focus event but everyone is invited to attend. I encourage you to check out the official announcement and help make this event a huge success. More details HERE

  • @abit has announced a new Bitshares Block Explorer BTS.AI, which launched earlier this week. BTS.AI joins the 2 existing explorers and

  • A communication proposal has been put forward by BTSFAV who is encouraging Bitshares committee members to support a statement to the general public in relation to Bitshares 'partners'. To summarize, Bitshares being a Decentralized Autonomous Corporation mean that no single person or entity can enter into partnerships with any third parties and the only way to forge an official partnership would be via a stakeholder vote. Full information HERE

  • The BitShares Blockchain Foundation has announced 3 new worker proposals which are looking to make use of the BFF escrow program. The new worker proposals are Legal Council about BTS and No-action, BSIP 29 and BitShares-ui. You can find the official announcement HERE

  • The Scorum team has announced the first testnet of the Scorum blockchain is now live HERE. Scorum is the new Graphene blockchain with a team who have developed ACCT (Atomic Cross Chain Transactions) on the Graphene toolkit. For more information HERE

  • Graphene based chains have scored well in the recently introduced Weisstarings crypto currency ratings. EOS scoring a B, Steem scoring a B- and Bitshares scoring a C+. The ratings got a controversial entry to the space but either way it is great to see Graphene chains in good regard.

  • BTS being used as collateral for the smartcoin economy has increased 20.81% of the circulating supply

  • The Beyond Bitcoin Bitshares weekly hangouts have now moved to the Discord platform. You can join the Bitshares Discord HERE and also catch the latest hangouts streamed live on youtube HERE

Awesome, I'm really glad you guys moved everything to discord instead of mumble. I despised that platform, HOWEVER your discord link was not a permanent link and this article needs to be updated with a permalink to your discord. You can achieve this by clicking the little box when getting the link that says check if you do not want the link to expire. Thanks again.

I also enjoy discord, took me a little while to warm up to it but think it is a great alternative to slack/mumble.

Thank you very much for the feedback and guidance i have acquired a perma link now so should be good going forward -

To bring a little joy to another sad crypto day I have made a competition where there will be 10 x Winners of 500 Tron (TRX) ~ 500 Tron for each winner. The competition is for those who does not yet have a Binance account. It is not a fortune but if value raises again it can turn into pretty much.

The first 10 people using my referrall ink to create their Binance account will get 500 TRX (Tron).
Register your free account:

After signing up please leave a comment to this post so that I can see the first 10 people, thanks :-)

In this way we can help eachother.

I was too late for the giveaway but its great to see the helping hands!! Keep up the awesome work.

You are not too late for anything unless you already have a Binance account. This is just a minor competition that I am personally responsible for. 1 guy has already signed up so there are 9 to go :-)

I appriciate your support guys.

Didn't Tron just plagiarize a whitepaper and raise millions?

I am not a big fan of Tron to be honest. However I still own some TRX which I will use for competitions.

Competition update

7 winners are left to be found. 3 people already registered their Binance account yesterday by using my link.

Best time of the week :)

It usually is but Stan's announcement kinda put a damper on this.

And I was just thinking abou BitSahres and then I saw this post on the tranding page

Current registered wallets/accounts within the Bitshares network is 688833; an increase of 24656 wallets/accounts since last week
I think this is huge amount , In other post I read that in a month , many people are joining @steemit, that is a good sign

it is a good number indeed; i also like to look at the # of BTS holders week to week which has has very impressive growth

my family is joining now, also my friends @steempower, I think it is a best platform to work at home

Yes that isna very impressive amount of new wallets for just a week. That's huge. Bitshares really is a platform light years ahead of the pack.

I like Bitshares as a distributed exchange. But it does suffer from irregularities and lack of support. My ETH deposit went missing a few weeks ago (either due to Bitshares or OpenLedger's mistake), and I'm still waiting for it. Support is either not responding or blaming the other party. It makes me hesitant to trade on it, as you can imagine.

I'm glad to report the issue has been resolved and the missing ETH was finally deposited on my Bitshares account.

We were actually discussing the value of a platform level support outside 3rd parties like openledger in last weeks community hangout.

Without knowing your situation; given your transfering eth your issue is highly likely related to the eth network or the openledger gateway and not bitshares directly. The openledger ceo was in the hangout last week and he said they are swamped with tickets with a high portion of them coming for outside issues but none the less still requiring attention and causing a backlog

Hope they get you sorted out soon

I'm afraid it's not only due to the backlog. What happened was the following: I send ETH from Bitstamp to Bitshares through the OpenLedger gateway. The adress that Bitshares provided received the deposit but it was never credited to my account. I contacted OpenLedger, their support mentioned the backlog, they looked into it and then concluded it was specifically because I send it from Bitstamp and that there was nothing they could do. They included a link to an OpenLedger blogpost that warned about sending from Bitstamp. Obviously I hadn't read that blogpost beforehand and it was also not mentioned on the deposit page in Bitshares (which I think it should have).
Anyway, I just received an email from OpenLedger support that they will look into it again. Fingers crossed.

Try going to hidden assets, if you received it, it might just be hidden.

I'm amending my post, as OL did a recent update 020218. Here's the link:


I can confirm that, I heard him speak in the hangout as well...

Thanks for sharing @steempower, really interesting to read the stats of the Bitshares network, and compare it to previous posts to see what has changed! I'm glad that you show the community exactly what's happening with Bitshares!

I'm currently trying to do something similar with Steemit - create a weekly update on the rate of change of growth on Steemit, why it is changing and how it is changing.

I have also started looking for leased SP, as I am running a Journey to Steemit Success Series, where I show people how I earned $1,000 on the platform in 3 weeks. The idea is to increase user retention rate to increase daily active users! I will be going through new content daily and providing upvotes to high value content, that doesn't have many high value upvotes - with the idea that this too will increase daily active user retention rate! If this is something you'd be interested in supporting, let me know. I'm currently putting together a small PDF explaining the plan.

Hi Luke, sounds like your doing good work! Thank you for the comment and best of luck with your report

Thank you! I'd really appreciate your support on my latest Steemit Beginner's series.

Nice updates
Shows there's some percent of growth

This one is another an eye opener for me. As a newbie here in this community, I am not really familiar with other terms you discuss like Bitshares distributions, their exchanges and all of this stats you have mention. Wow! There's more for me to learn here. Thank you for this @steempower!

Bitshares could be brilliant because of the decentralization.

I am still a beginner of this community and still I do not have much of the idea about certain things here.And these kind of posts are very useful for me.I learn from them and improve myself.So thank you very much for sharing these facts with us.

I have my doubts about BTS, for instance, their version of decentralization is a lot more vulnerable than say ETH.
