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. Transaction fees have been falling by approximately 3.97% per week, while the average transaction size is down 9.02% in US dollars. In terms of how much computing power Bitcoin is using, over the past 30 days its hash rate has continued to trend upwards, ultimately gaining daily by approximately 0.57%. A trend in hash rate that upwards suggests that mining is becoming more competitive, and that the chain is thus becoming harder to break. As such, this might enable Bitcoin to draw more capital to its chain.
