We clearly need more @burnpost. At least a 25x increase. Probably more.

Bring it on.

BTW the above undercounts burnpost by about 25% since the top level burnposts (but not comments) currently use beneficiary to null and aren't included.

Ah...good to know. Thanks!

Does this include STEEM/SBD burned through null beneficiary settings?

STEEM that is burned by setting @null as the beneficiary of a post is burned before it is even created. I would be interesting to include that in my stats as well, but at this moment I only have the transfers to @null.

Will that be possible to pick up as I suspect a lot is burnt as beneficiaries.

Many of my posts, and all the daily news posts send 5% to @null.

before it is even created

That's philosophically debatable. Payouts come from the reward fund and I believe that is considered part of total supply (though I'm not 100% sure on this last point).

Technically, the reward pool is not part of the supply yet, as far as I know. Rewards will become part of the supply once paid out, if I'm correct. But that is just technical and it is indeed debatable from a non-technical standpoint.

I would be interesting to include the @null beneficiaries, but I do not have this data in my database right now.

Thanks! Just wanted to make sure I understood what I was seeing.

Yep, this will change the numbers a fair bit.

Probably a good idea to do one for @steem.dao as well.

very good post! interesting stadistics!

what does it mean burned? you mean sold immideatelly?

STEEM that is burned is removed from the supply. Gone forever.

Bang, I did it again... I just resteemed your post!
Week 7 of my contest just started...check it out!

Hey @penguinpablo, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

Good add.

A little birdy is telling me we need to get a handle on the rewards being voted to sellers.
Can we get a list of the top ~100 transfers to exchanges?
Many of those are only stripping value.
Folks will want to stop voting them more, if they want the price to rise.
