I was doing a similar report to this one when we were on Steem. Back then most of the new accounts, somewhere in the range between 70% to 80%, were created by Steemit Inc. The number of new accounts was around 10k per month in the last two years. Looking back at it now, it looks like Steemit Inc was just creating accounts for the sake of it. Not real users.
Now the central authority is gone, and it is interesting to check the data again.
How many accounts are created?
Who is creating them?
How many of them are active?
Hive started on March 21st. We will be looking in the period after Hive was created March 21st till August 8th.
Number of accounts created
Here is the chart for the number of accounts created in the period.
A total of 30,300 Hive accounts were created in the period.
The daily average is around 217 accounts.
We can see some spikes in the beginning with more than 500 accounts created per day, and later again at the end of May. From then there is a slow decline in the numbers of accounts created to just below 200 per day in the last month.
On a monthly level we are around 7k average, that compared with the Steem historical pumped numbers around 10k is not bad at all.
Who created the accounts?
Below is a chart for the account creators.
As mentioned with Steemit Inc out of the picture it is interesting to see who is now creating most of the accounts.
The @esteemapp is in the lead with almost 9k accounts created, followed by @steemmonsters with 8.5k accounts. These two apps have created 2/3 of all new accounts. Next is @tipu with 4.6k accounts, or 15% share.
Having more apps that create new accounts and onboard users is critical for Hive.
Bellow is a chart with the number of account creators per day.
On average there is around 20 different accounts creator each day. For the period there is a total of 803 different accounts creators.
Accounts Distribution per Number of Posts
How active were the new accounts? Do they got rewarded for their activities?
Below is a chart of the number of accounts and how much they posted.
The accounts are grouped in 4 groups:
- Accounts with 0 posts
- Accounts with 1 post
- Accounts with 2 to 5 posts
- Accounts with more than 5 posts
Comments are also included in the number of posts.
A majority 75% of the accounts that were created didn’t posted at all. A 5% posted only once, 8.6% posted between 2 and 5 times.
10.5% of the accounts posted more than 5 times. This number is better from the Steem era when it was around 3% to 5%.
Note that these are numbers just for the post activity. As we are seening there is more options on the blockchain now, then just posting. For example a Splinterlands player, who is making custom jsons transactions will not be register above.
Will be interesting to take a look at how many of the new accounts are making custom jsons transactions, but not posting.
Accounts Distribution per Balance
Below is a chart of the number of accounts and their distribution according to the balance of the account. The balance is approximate and not totally accurate.
A majority, 56.7% of the accounts created in the period have 0 balance. A 35.4% have balance between 0 and 1, 2% are between 1 to 5 HIVE.
The rest of the accounts share 6% are in the groups with a balance more than 5 HIVE.
The balance doesn’t include the delegated HIVE that the accounts get.
Top 10 new accounts with the largest number of posts
Here are the top 10 accounts created in the period and had the biggest number of posts and comments.
|Rank||User||Posts and comments|
@creativemary is dominant in the first place.
Top 10 accounts with the biggest balance
Here are the top 10 accounts created in period with the biggest balance.
Note here as well that the balance is approximate.
Some of these are community projects, some new regular users, exchanges etc.
My personal view on the new accounts numbers is that they seems to be more real now then before on Steem, when Steemit Inc was creating a massive chunk of the accounts that were doing nothing. The share of active accounts from the newly created ones is still not as big, at least when we look at it from posting activity. But its bigger than before. Also I guess the number of accounts making custom jsons and not posting is quite big, having in mind the numbers of accounts Splinterlands created.
All the best
