This is next in my series of posts reviewing the amount and value of powered up STEEM on the Steem blockchain. For previous posts, see the end of this entry.

Noteworthy in the last week

  • Week over week, the number of powered up STEEM increased by about 65K, or 0%.
  • Over the course of the week, we saw five daily increases and no new highs in number of STEEM powered up.
  • The modeled value advanced against SBD, ETH, and LTC. It lost ground against USD, BTC, and TRX. Changes ranged from -12% against USD to +4 1/2% against ETH.
  • In terms of all comparison values except for TRX and USD, the modeled value remains above its January 1 baseline.
  • This week (Sunday through Saturday) saw a total of 672K STEEM powered down, which is an increase of 40 1/2% as compared to last week's 478K STEEM.

And here are the charts, based on data collected daily since April 10, 2021.

I'm posting early this week due to time constraints and today's final numbers haven't been downloaded yet, so these graphs might change slightly next week.

Daily Changes

Here is a chart of daily changes in powered-up STEEM from April 11, 2021 to present. The graph also includes a linear trend line and a 28 day moving average.


Here are some descriptive statistics, for numbers geeks.



With a weekly increase of about 65k, or 0%, the graph is basically flat for its 11th consecutive week.


Modeled value of powered-up STEEM in terms of USD

In terms of USD, we saw a weekly decrease of about 5M dollars, or about 12%. The value is still below the long-term mean, and holds above its recent low near $34 million. It also remains above the low of ~27 million from June 22, 2021.


Modeled value of powered-up STEEM in terms of Tron (TRX)

Powered-up STEEM declined by 37M tokens against TRX or a little over 6%.


Modeled value of powered-up STEEM in terms of Steem Dollars

Up by almost 190K SBDs or nearly 1 1/2%


Modeled value of powered-up STEEM as a percentage of Steem's market cap

Still running basically flat for the last couple of months - aside from an anomalous spike on April 26. With today's observed value of 39.8%, we have now seen 139 consecutive days above 39%; 172 consecutive days above 38%; 203 consecutive days above 37%; 330 consecutive days above 35%; and 393 straight days above 1/3.

Daily Powerdown Activity

Here is graph with data from to show daily completed and pending powerdown activity. With 672K in completed powerdowns last week and 413K pending (both measured from Sunday through Saturday), we can expect powerdowns to decrease next week by about 38% or more.


The horizontal lines are the average values for completed (blue) and pending (cyan) powerdowns, and the yellow line is a 28 day moving average of completed powerdowns. "Pending" numbers now come from the Steemit API, not from

Here are some descriptive statistics for the numbers geeks:

I am an active user of the steem coin. I've been following the rise and fall for more than two years now. I don't understand why people are pushing SG right now. It only needs to be increased after all.

What is "SG"?

STEEM POWER, Translation difficulties, sorry!

I'm doing some powerups, I want to increase my voting power, my goal is 1,000, I'm sure I'll get them

38 million dollars is quite a bit in my opinion, while it should be much more.

This post has been featured in the latest edition of Steem News...

This post contains all about the financial indicators of steem. One can easily take a good knowledge about the financial condition of steem, steemit and related things with it. Good analysis.

672 k powerdown in just a week, what is the main reason of such big amount powerdown in this low price market? Though there is a big ratio of staked value of steem compared to total supply, I see recently people is being interested in other social media over steem. But why steem authority is not doing something big tp attract more people and hold them here as before?

I still beleive in steem. Steem will obviously survive and be the king of all blockchain based social media. Steem is king.
