11/10/23 - Correction - The average win rate for nodes in August was not greater than one.
Let’s take a dive into the Swarm network’s performance metrics for September. The details below offer a window into individual node earnings, win value statistics, and the geographical node distribution. By juxtaposing September’s metrics with August’s data, we can explore the network’s growth patterns.
All data in this report is based on nodes which have won the redistribution game at least once per month, nodes which have not won were not included.
Network Total Monthly Rewards
This metric is the total monthly rewards paid out across the entire network.
|Month||Total Rewards (BZZ)|
In September, the network’s total monthly rewards climbed to 147,825 BZZ, marking an uptick from August’s 135,927 BZZ.
Single Node Monthly Average Earnings
This metric is the average total winnings per staking node per month.
|Month||Average Earnings (BZZ)|
For September, nodes witnessed a marginal rise in their average earnings, reaching 69.56 BZZ, a hair more than last month’s average of 68.20 BZZ.
Monthly Median Win Values
This metric is the median win amount for each win event.
|Month||Median Win Value (BZZ)|
September’s median win values ticked up slightly to 44.62 BZZ, generally in line with the 43.97 BZZ median value in August.
Monthly Average Win Values
This metric is the average win amount for each win event.
|Month||Average Win Value (BZZ)|
The average win values for September escalated to 46.52 BZZ, a significant increase from August’s 41.45 BZZ.
Number of Staking Nodes by Month
This is determined by the number of unique staking nodes each month which have won at least once in that month (as noted above, it does not include nodes which did not win in that month).
|Month||Number of Nodes|
September saw the staking node count swell to 2,125, up from August’s 1,993.
Total Active Nodes by Month
This metric is defined as the total number of unique nodes (both staking and non-staking nodes) which are active on the Swarm network each month.
|Month||Number of Nodes|
September saw a continuation in the steady rise in number of total active monthly nodes.
Staking Nodes by Country (Top 6)
This metric shows the number of unique staking nodes per month in the top five countries, with unknown countries and those with fewer nodes included in the “Others” category.
September marked a pronounced rise in staking nodes in Germany, surging to 1,032 from August’s 798. Conversely, Finland maintained stability, while China experienced a dip. This data mirrors the fluid global landscape of the Swarm network’s reach.
The metrics for September continue the trend of the Swarm network’s sustained growth and stability. The geographical node distribution, especially the surge in countries like Germany, exemplifies the global reach of Swarm. Overall the month of September is a continuation of the previous month’s pattern of continued growth.
