Fees Collected on the BitShares blockchain through April 2017

in #bitshares4 years ago


To assist BitShares stakeholders with understanding the source and quantity of fees that are collected by the network, a report has been prepared that covers the collected fees since the blockchain's inception in October 2015 through April 2017. Note that the fees collected are the fees paid by users for operations that they submitted. A summary of the report appears below.

All Time

The quantity of operations and transactions, regardless of which asset was used to pay the operational fee, are plotted below on a monthly basis.


The BTS fees collected since the inception of the blockchain are plotted below. Note that a fee paid in BTS does not necessarily mean that the operation itself involved BTS. For example, the fee to transfer BTS could be paid for in BTS, bitUSD, or any other asset. It just happens to be that the majority of fees are paid for in BTS.


April 2017

During the month, 2.97 million BTS were collected for 2.87 million operations (within 1.01 million transactions) on the blockchain.

The leading distribution of BTS feed collected for operations were as follows:

Operation Type% of Total BTS
Asset create67%
Account upgrade14%
Limit order create7%
Account create6%

Feedback Welcome

If there is sufficient interest, this report could be produced periodically. Please let me know in the comments below.
