Advanced Steem Metrics Report for 5th October 2016

in #stats4 years ago

Making invisible visible: 7 charts and 3 tables with daily Steem metrics.


This is a version 0.5 of my daily reports designed to be a comprehensive source of Steem metrics. I am working on adding more metrics and visual improvements.

How to read

Every chart starts on 1st of June and extends to yesterday. The number on the label attached to the Y axis on the right is the yesterday's value for that chart.

Historical charts have STEEM/USD volume weighted daily price on the Y axis on the left of the chart.

User acquisition

A basic metric of any startup, user acquisition provides insights into the future trends of Steem platform.

Chart is based on number of new accounts grouped by the created date. Only accounts that have performed any of these actions are included: post, comment, vote.

User engagement

A number of engaged accounts grouped by distinct activity. At least one action (vote, post or comment) is required.


High quality content generation has a well positive feedback loop with traffic acquisition through short term viral promotion and long term SEO benefits.

Only posts with >= 2 votes and comments with >= 0 votes are counted.

Daily votes by marine fauna

Number of votes made yesterday by minnows, dolphins and whales by percentiles. Chart shows that most Steem users do not maximize their voting power and therefore do not maximize their curation rewards.

Note: Voting power depletes completely by voting 200 times during 5 days, so this chart has some degree of imprecision.

If you are interested in increasing your curation rewards, get in touch with me on

Payout metrics

Payout data is a sum of pending and past payouts for posts created on the given date.
