Daily votes by marine fauna

Number of votes made yesterday by minnows, dolphins and whales by percentiles. Data demonstrates that most Steem users do not deplete their voting power and therefore do not maximize their curation rewards. Note: Voting power depletes completely by voting 200 times during 5 days therefore daily votes metric has some degree of imprecision.
