This is a version 0.21 of my daily reports deasigned to be a comprehensive source of Steem metrics.

  • Planned: new metrics for posts with number of comments, reblogs, upvotes and outliers removed.

Active Human* Stakeholders

Active users1,0981,1401,1833,36997
  • "User" is a misnomer for an active Steem account. Users, as defined in online analytics and startup metrics, doesn't have a monetary stake in the platform. "Stakeholder" seems to be a more descriptive term. Also, a majority of active Steem accounts are authors, a majority of active Wordpress (for comparison) users are readers and lurkers.
  • These charts provide data on long (since 2016/06/01) and medium (last 30 days) term active stakeholders (defined as those who has made at least one resteem, following, post or comment) and price. These actions do not necessarily indicate human control of an account.
  • Baselines: Max, min and avg for the 30d active users metric.
