Hey everyone, today I’d like to go through the growth over the past year for both crypto-monetized and blockchain social platforms. Let’s compare them to get an overview of how they all performed and grew.
I think this image shared by Jeff Kirdeikis the founder of Uptrennd gives you a pretty good comparison of the top platforms in terms of how well they are doing, but not necessarily for user growth which is my focus for today.
So, we are going to dive in briefly to each platform to take a look at their statistics/user growth charts and or any information I can query from their staff.
https://www.uptrennd.com/stats - By far the most impressive for a new platform. The last two months they saw more than 13,000 users joining and have gone from just over 8,000 users in August to hitting 50,000 this month.
https://batgrowth.com/ - By far the most adoption and growth overall (not a social platform necessarily, but relevant to this conversation). They have over 346,353 users. From October 28th to December 6th they gained over 20,000 YouTubers alone. Congratulations to Brave & BAT.
https://www.publish0x.com/stats - Treading along steadily growing averaging between 2,500 and 3,500 new users per month. I’m actually surprised it’s not more!
https://steemworld.org/ - According to Steemworld there are currently 1,345,487 accounts. https://steemit.com/steemit/@penguinpablo/daily-steem-stats-report-friday-december-6-2019 - This says they are getting about 300 new users a day on average and 9,000-10,000 a month
https://lbry.tv/ - As per my request on Twitter they made a temporary link which may or may not work for you at the time of posting: https://traction.lbry.com/public/question/eeed5322-ef18-42f0-9c2b-9d0d1e8401a3. They were able to share with me the distinct network user accesses per month for 2018 and 2019. Here’s is the important information for user growth in 2019 in terms of access.
These are the stats from 2017 to early 2019 for all the statistics available to be provided and to compare with.
https://www.minds.com/ - Unfortunately, I couldn’t get any statistics and given they are a quasi-public company they cannot share this information ahead of their formal announcements, but the Co-Founder John Ottman said to me when asked about this “we are adding tens of thousands of news users monthly.”
https://bittubestats.com/dashboard/user/bittubers/adoption - BitTube’s new site has only been up since July and since then they’ve gained about 20,755 users averaging to about 4,151 per month which isn’t bad considering how new it is and how small the community is.
https://beta.cent.co/+hhaev5 – According to their Thanksgiving update they started the year with 5,000 users and are now at 40,000. This means on average they’ve gained 2,916 users per month.
For Trybe and Sapien I couldn’t get any information on the users or any statistics. Apparently Sapien used to list it on their homepage but have since removed it.
One of the Trybe staff members was able to share with me that over the past 90 days they’ve had 1,000 new users join averaging a little over 300 a month.
https://flote.app/ - Doesn’t have any statistics listed and it’s very new so I just wanted to include this because I think it’s a great platform to consider using. The staff let me know that they launched Flote on July 21st and have been growing over 100% month over month with over 6,500 members today.
Let me know what you think about the growth of these various platforms. Which is your favorite? Which do you see growing the most in 2020? Which do you see following Hyperspace, SOLA, and now Narrative by falling off next? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
