9.76% of Accounts Performed 10+ Transactions in the Past Month

LongHash - a blockchain data analysis firm - studied accounts on the Stellar network to identify the best recipient accounts for a theoretical airdrop. Their analysis indicates that 87% of accounts on the network have less than 10 lumens, and 9.76% of accounts performed 10 or more transactions in the past month. While the research is interesting, airdropping projects cannot target accounts in this way due to the need for trustlines and the related increase in the minimum account balance.

Fee Stats

To help with surge pricing, stats about transaction fees are now available on the Stellar Dashboard as well as in Horizon.


Surge Pricing and Maxed out Ledgers

SDF engineer Tomer Weller writes that increased network activity has made it difficult to get transactions into ledgers lately. “About a quarter of ledgers are maxing out at 50 transactions” (the current ledger limit set by the validators in the network). Many of these failed transactions are sets of path payment operations intent on arbitraging price differences in the network’s order books. He also discusses CAP5’s upcoming “dutch auction” fee payments and a general sentiment that the minimum fee should increase.
