Bitshares - State of the Network - 6th March 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.

  • @fox has announced the release of the official Bitshares Core Developer worker proposal on the Bitshares network. This worker proposal named '201803-bitshares-core' is now live and the community can cast their vote within the Bitshares wallets. I am happy to report that within this week support has pushed this worker into being actively funded (your votes are still required if you want to ensure this team is well supported into the future). Find more information HERE

  • AEX exchange (formally known as BTC38) has announced that they have issued GAT (Global AEX Token) on the Bitshares blockchain. GAT is similar to Binance's BNB token and can be used as transaction fees or used for voting on new coins listings; AEX will also use a percentage of the exchange income to buy back GAT tokens from the market. Gat tokens will be distributed via a daily airdrop (that needs to be claimed each day) to BTC, BTS, ETH, LTC and NSS tokens holder on the exchange. More information HERE

  • A new team of application developers has made themselves known to the community this week with the release of the email-notifier for BitShares DEX. The Notifier allows Bitshares users to subscribe to email alert for account changes such as Transfers, Fill Order execution, or, soon, breach of collateral ratio. The code for the notifier is open source and there are instructions available to run the service on your own node; alternatively the team is offering the service to the community for 50 BTS per user for a lifetime subscription. The team have also confirmed, that it's building a wallet application (named Trusty) on top of BitShares, and they plan to also open-source the SDK framework used. You can find the source code and information to run the service or subscribe to their service HERE. Keep an eye out for this team on upcoming Beyond Bitcoin / Bitshares talk hangouts. If you want to get in contact with this team you can reach them via the telegram account @trustyarm.

It is really fascinating to see how Steem leads the Transaction cake by such a great margin. It gives such a strong hint towards Steemit's bright future. I clearly see how Steemit will have absolutely skyrocketed!


Great tech with a low barrier to entry makes for a great example of scaleablity for the industry

I'm always happy to see these reports each week.

It's a fantastic way to get an idea of what's been going on in the BitShares community.

Thank you so much for taking the time to organize all of this.


Thank King! Appreciate the kind words

It is an excellent digital currency and is currently suitable for my storage where I will buy more than 10k
Just store it and you will get me fantastic numbers and talk well. You may become a millionaire because of this currency. It is a golden chance opportunity
Which since its inception has sought to create a different entity from bitcoin based on the trading process and another example of the encrypted digital currency BitShares, which has described itself since it was issued as the fair alternative alternative to "Wall Street", which uses the protocol "Ripple" is used to complete the process between (Ltc) is quite similar to Bitcoin, but only takes advantage of Bitcoin 's book chain, to secure its trading - based systems such as CounterParty,
Consider my words and be ashamed before you repent
Thank you sir for the excellent article very much excellent coin grateful to you for the valuable information sir. @steempower

Great work, thanks for including Hertz in your report 👍

Still seeking additional price feed publishers if any of the pre-approved price feed publishers are interested!

It's an excellent coin for me and I wish her luck
Stability of the currency "bitshares" in the market:
This currency has the advantages of "bitcoin" and it is also able to maintain a price tie with the adoption of the alliance with international currencies.
It also has an incredibly high utility that is commensurate with the trade.
All of this has been achieved in Bitshares, thanks to which stable assets have been reached in the market.
Smart currencies will be displayed as a source available to everyone through the slow, tight and frequent banking system.
The commonly used and commonly used currency pairs will enable trade decision making with ease and ease, and will also reduce the need for capital gains account and losses in fixed assets to determine the extent to which taxes are subject to taxation.
Thanks for sharing the information

Steemit that continue to move toward rapid progress. Leaving important information like this, unfortunately unfortunately. We look forward to the next post @steempower

your pots is very beautiful and thankyou form sharing about you me aposts thankful to you @steempower

Really Interesting Updates, @steempower

Hi Sir It's really amazing that most of my attention is distracted by its advantages
The most important feature of the currency "Bitshares" are:

Performance and progression:
The platform is capable of handling 100,000 transactions in a second and more with minimum optimization.
The decentralized asset market allows users to trade in a fully decentralized exchange.
Dynamic account permissions All accounts on the platform can be set up to be controlled by different accounts, which reflects the hierarchy of permissions in real life organizations, where money can be controlled by several people and this hierarchical control of funds creates a less vulnerable environment for theft or piracy .
Bonus Program: Blochen has a built-in referral program that provides incentives for users to bring new people to the platform and increasing the amount of users strengthens the security of the entire network and increases its market value.
User-issued assets: Users on Bitshares are able to create their own custom codes eg enhance their business and facilitate group financing for startup.

Sooo much information! Looking to enter into the BTS market but wondering why the price has been declining lately? Looks like it could offer a nice entry point at current prices but still hesitant on the future price outlook at the moment.

Thanks for the report, anyone seeing the across the board crash at the moment? What's causing this? .15 is the lowest I've seen bts since I've been on platform and it's affecting every asset I track.

Wow, the more the steemit community has made it easier
