Straight Off the Chain
291,597 transactions were recorded on the Bitcoin blockchain yesterday. The trend in daily transactions is not clear, though it should be noted that transactions have grown by about 8.23% over the past week. Bitcoin may end up functioning as a currency for transactions if it does regularly increase the number of daily transactions occurring on its chain. As for Bitcoin’s transaction fees, the average transaction fee yesterday was $0.48 US dollars. The size of the typical transaction on Bitcoin’s blockchain is down 9.02% in US dollars; meanwhile, the fee for sending transactions has been falling by 3.97% per week. Last but certainly not least, Bitcoin’s hash rate continues to trend upwards on a 30 day basis, gaining about 0.57% per day. A trend in hash rate that is upwards suggests that mining is becoming more competitive, and that the chain is thus becoming harder to break. This may help Bitcoin draw more capital to its chain.
