Accounts creations in October 2019

Below is a chart of the number of accounts created daily in October 2019.


A total of 9,187 Steem accounts were created in October 2019

The daily char shows a steady number of accounts being created.
Compared to September 2019 when this number was 10,045, the numbers are a bit down.

Here is the number of accounts created by month.


Looks like we are hovering between the 9k to 12k since may 2019.

Who created the accounts?

Below is a chart for the account creators.


Steem created the most accounts with 72% share. Next are Steemhunt, Steemmonsters, and Fundition. Oracle-D and Blocktrades are also in the top creators of accounts.

If we want to see organic growth on Steem we need a lot of different project creating new accounts. New tribes, games etc. Once we have a more diverse creators of accounts and Steem with less share with created accounts it will be a great position for the Steem Blockchain.

Thanks for running those stats.

I agree, the more projects that are creating accounts, the better it is for the entire ecosystem. We need to see things spread out even further.

Yes, if we manage to have lets say 5 projects creating 50% share of the accounts than it is a big deal.
The project is decentrilized and there is no single point of failure.

Any more info available on @upbitsteem. Is it an exchange account?

It brought in 17 million STEEM from Bittrex a week ago.

05.11.2019 18:10

Yes I belive so.... the upbit exchange ...they moved this from bittrex a week ago

I think/not sure steem is not listed there .... so maybe a future listing ....

05.11.2019 18:33

Upbit seems to be the second largest exchange for STEEM/KRW...

05.11.2019 18:57

Nice to see new accounts but most people are not using the free account they got and since steem auto upgraded the curating pattern of auto upvote I don't think does dust accounts can be use for curation trail

Hi dear friend @dalz.

I find it unfortunate that this large percentage of accounts created have not made a single post.

This gives the impression that they are not legitimate accounts. That is, they do not belong to common "people." Maybe they are accounts created in series? belonging to an organization? What would be the purpose?

Since the implementation of the last HF appeared legions of accounts of recent creation, which are only dedicated to indiscriminate downvote. For me this is a meaningless activity that does not correspond to the true essence of the existence of downvotes.

Perhaps a sampling analysis of the activity of these accounts should be done to determine if there is any relationship.

Your friend, Juan.
