Daily Active Addresses for
Bitcoin

Canonical name

daily_active_addresses

Definition

The number of distinct addresses that participated in a transfer for the given asset in any given day. Each address is counted only once for the day. Both the senders and the receivers of the asset are counted.

Measuring Unit

Addresses

Frequency - Daily

One value is computed for each day and each asset. The day is taken according to the UTC timezone. So for example the value of the metric for BTC and June 10, 2019 will contain the number of distinct addresses for transfers that happened between 2019-06-10 00:00:00 UTC and 2019-06-10 23:59:59 UTC.

Computation time

The computation starts around 00:30 UTC each day. The final value of this metric is generally available around 00:40 UTC.

We also compute intermediate values. That means the number of addresses from the start of the day in UTC until the time the computation is ran. The intermediate computations start at 06:30 UTC, 12:30 UTC, 18:30 UTC. The intermediate values are generally available around 10 minutes after the computation starts.

Note: Since our Bitcoin latency is generally larger than 30 minutes and can go up to 2 hours, the value computed at 00:30 UTC might not be final. In that case the value computed at 6:30 UTC will be final.

Latency

For most assets latency is around 40 minutes. For Bitcoin the latency for the final value is usually 6 hours and 40 minutes. At 00:40 UTC you will get an approximate value which will exclude the addresses in the last up to 3 blocks.

Available assets

This metric is computed for Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, Ripple and all ERC20 tokens.
