The sum count of unique addresses that were active in the network (as a recipient of a ledger change) that day. Individual destination addresses are counted. Individual addresses are not double-counted if previously active.
Active Addresses (Received)
Active Addresses (Received) is the sum count of unique addresses that where the receiving end of a ledger change
For this unadjusted version of the metric, all ledger change scenarios are considered.
Such ledger changes can include mining, staking, transacting, account creation, etc..
If an address was active multiple times as recipient during that interval, it is counted only once.
For ETH, miners receiving fees from the original sender of a failed transaction are counted as active receiving addresses.
This metric is not available for assets that have full privacy, like Monero, Grin. For assets that have opt-in privacy features, like ZCash, it only takes the non-private activities into account.
In a given day:
Address A mines 10 coins
A was recipient, no sender
Address B sends 2 coins to each C and D
C and D were recipients, B was sender
Address D delegates 20 coins to E
D is the sender, E is recipient
Address A burns 1 coin
A is the sender, no recipient
Address F votes on a protocol change
F is the sender/initiator
We would count as active recipients: A, C, D and E. The value of the metric would therefore be: 4.
