Since I didn't like my last article myself in retrospect, I'll try not to make it so static in the future and to explain the following dates in my own words, as well as to compare the dates of the previous week with the current ones. Then let's start
FULL NODE COUNT
It was already noticed last week that the information on "decentralization" had been changed. The full nodes are now simply no longer available. Fortunately, I was able to get the statistics from the archive. Since the values fluctuate a lot there, we remain fair and consider it possible that the API will bring wrong values. Nevertheless, we draw a weekly comparison:
11.4.21 lowest level: 6710
17.4.21 lowest level: 4590 - 32%
I just took the lowest level from April 16th, 21st, because on April 17th, the fluctuations were just too violent.
11.4.21 = 8878 blocks = 17.756 Chia = 7.8%
19.4.21 = 16161 blocks = 32.322 = 10.64%
So our Chinese friends from Hpoolcom gained roughly 2 percent this week and now own a total of 10.6% of all XCH farmed so far. 21mil XCH are prefarmed and owned by CHIA itself, so we will not count them.
11.4.21 = 47,97PB Hpool / 252.05PB Total = 19% total Netspace
18.4.21 = 96.03PB / 369.35PB Total = 26% total Netspace
So Hpool now owns 1/4 of the total CHIA Netspace. This sounds like anything but Decentralisation. Also they almost doubled their Netspace within 1 week. You still think this is no problem and I am just a hater?
As you can see there is no significant movement. Just imagine how it would look if they stil scale it to date, instead of blocks. Spoiler Alert: It wouldn't look good.
11.4.21 = up to 280PB
18.4.21 = up to 390PB = + 39%
UNIQUE ADRESS COUNT
We will start tracking this from now on. The way they display it, it is impossible to decrease. What would be much more interesting is how many % of new adresses will be added. Display as Blocks / Date this makes no sense at all.
19.4.21 we are at block 152.000
