Advanced Steem Metrics Report for 27th November 2016

NEW: Key metrics at a glance, more outliers and anomalies reports


This is a version 0.23 of my daily reports designed to be a comprehensive source of Steem metrics.

  • More historical charts and data can be found at
  • I've added a key metrics module for fast and easy consumption and comparison of data. This will serve as an easy way to be informed for those who don't have time or interest to dive deeper into data.
  • I'm continuing to evolve daily reports to provide insights into various outliers and anomalies that are NOT visible on the aggregate charts. Notable example is @steemsports account.
  • Readded: Top posts by number of unique comments
  • Planned outliers: top accounts by number of daily posts, top accounts by number of daily comments
  • Planned: combine follows, reblogs into a general social network activity metric.
  • Planned: explore other fundamental metrics that are important for understanding Steem.
  • Planned: a more understandable daily payout distribution.
  • Planned: new metrics for posts with number of comments, reblogs, upvotes and outliers removed.

Active Human* Stakeholders

  • "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.

User acquisition

Chart is based on number of new accounts grouped by the created date. Only accounts that posted, commented or voted at least once are included are counted towards the total. Max, min and avg baselines are provided for the 30d new users twmetric.


  • Only posts with >=2 votes are included in the totals.

November was a real good leveling off month. We might have real price discovery for steem now.


Incoming hard fork and power down period changes may bring more volatility to Steem, I think we would need a few weeks after HF for "real price discovery" whatever that is in crypto :D

Beautiful data/information for the ones who want more knowledge
Very good analysis of tangible assets value in Steemit
Thank's for this reading because it gave me an idea for my next post "Intangible Value of Steemit"


Thanks and good luck with your next post!

Great list of articles! Will you have a report for the end of the year?


Thanks! Sure, yearly report would be interesting.

I like the new Metrics at a Glance. It would be nice to see the payouts information in some form there, too. I had to laugh - the number of votes to get into the Top 15 posts less than 10 SBD is getting higher and higher! And I like the new section on the number of unique commenters and total comments - that's nice for tracking how much human interaction is going on. Thanks for your consistency in reporting!


Thanks, @haphazard-hstead! I appreciate your feedback. Btw, payouts data added to the new report. Cheers!


You're welcome. I like that new layout!
