Powerdown Statistics #2 - January 11th - January 22th

in #exyle2 years ago


Every two weeks or so I like to compare the current Power down statistics and see how we stand.

Here they are:

11 January 2019

STEEMPOWER206,2 Million
LIQUID STEEM86.6 Million
SBD11,59 Million

22 January 2019

STEEMPOWER205 Million (-1,2 million)
LIQUID STEEM90.36 Million (+3,8 million)
SBD11 Million (-0.6 million)

After recent events Steemit inc. is powering down the Steemit account (42 million SP) to secure it from potential thieves that have made 'hypothetical, that they were never going to carry out (even though they were seated in positions where they could potentially do so with enough consensus)' treats to hard fork them out of their funds.

Considering Steemit inc. is a private company that obviously wants to secure their funds they have decided to power it down and send it to an exchange to hide it from view.

From the exchange it can either be distributed to new accounts that nobody knows are Steemit inc. (and therefor can't be hard forked out) or it can be sold.

Because of this move the amount of total Steempower has gone down with 1.2 million in the last two weeks. It's been while since the total amount of SP went down.

But on the plus side: The amount Steemit inc. powered down was around 2 million, so there was still 800k powered up by other parties (or Steemit inc.) in the last two weeks.

The amount of liquid STEEM has grown a lot because of all this with 3.8 million and also because another 0.6 million SBD was converted to STEEM.

If STEEM managed to increase more the SBD to STEEM conversion inflation will decrease fast.

The inflation from SBD to STEEM conversion might decrease if STEEM manages to go up more. Every SBD can be converted to $1 of STEEM. The higher STEEM trades for the less STEEM you get per conversion. Fingers crossed!

In layman’s terms, what is preventing the “potential thieves” from hard forking out the accounts held by the exchanges?

They can do that but then nobody will be able to trade on the exchanges.

Exchanges just have 1 Steem Account, just like yours or mine.

When you sent Steem to an exchange it's held in this 1 account, only the memo you send with it identifies it as yours as an IOU on the exchange.

When Steemit inc. sends money to Bittrex they can use it as a tumbler. When it comes out and is send to another Steem account nobody knows who owns it.

I wish STEEMIT INC might rethink about that massive powering down!


Are you still buying Steem Exyle?

No. I have made my investment in the downtrend. If it drops again I'll reconsider if not then what I have is what I have.

I dont understand why and how the amount of total steem decreases.
just because steem inc started power down and send it to a new adress the steem amount should not decrease. where is my error?

The total amount of STEEM increased. Just add the liquid STEEM and the Steempower together.

I noticed the other day that SBD was pushing really close to $1 again. It has since fallen back down, but it was interesting to see it back at those levels again. Thanks as always for sharing this information with us!

it is actually on a steady rise to 1$ :D

What is interesting is how the price has been positive despite these moves! From a demand/supply perspective, it means that people are still buying which is great. However, more promising will be a move into SP aside from whatever Steemit Inc does.

I think Steemit Inc are far more likely to move steem to other accounts and power up than sell at the current low price. So the the amount of steem powered up should increase a lot? We might not know where they move their steem but we might see how much. They might have to move the steem a few times, to make sure it isn't easy to trace?

Interesting thoughts. And what do you think about this post

I doubt that's true but it might explain the price rise. If its just a rumour to pump the price, I'll be able to buy Steem cheap again :)

Let's see what will be thuther...

It's just a rumour. Wether it's true or not doesn't matter to me, I'll hold Steem anyway.

Thank you for your answer! In any case I agree with your hold on Steem position!

Nice to look the stat's liquid steem on the rise as the steem prices going up

I'm just sad that a lot of great projects got their delegations taken away...

Posted using Partiko Android

I don't think any project should rely on Steemit Inc. Maybe a lot of the delegations can be replaced by lots of different Steem holders? Then it will be a positive, as they aren't relying on just one entity.

We might see a lot more liquid steem in circulation in the coming weeks.

nice post dear friend

If the conservative cut-off of SBD printing wasn't removed during HF20, then we wouldn't be printing SBD while there is a 2:1 conversion ratio while the debt is so high.

This post has been included in the latest edition of SOS Daily News - a digest of all you need to know about the State of Steem.

it would be interesting to see how many accounts they would need to move all that steem so no one would notice. it is not like new acc would have 1000 steem and a new whale is hard to miss 😁 anyways it is their steem and they can do whatever.
